Whether you are washing your face, putting on make up or getting a facial, it can be incredibly helpful to keep your hair back, or otherwise out of your face. This prevents annoyance and allows you to finish faster, but it also eliminates the possibility of contamination and other trouble. You don’t want strands falling to get cosmetics on them, and you don’t want your already finished hair to get wet when washing either. If you have long hair, you could use a ponytail in some cases, but for medium length or short styles, this is not really an option. Even with long hair, the pony is not fool proof, but that does not mean it isn’t possible to control hair without growing a third arm.
The Pony Tail
In order to prevent hair from dropping into the sink when washing at night, or falling in the way when curling your eyelashes, something will have to hold it. Using your hand can be the most effective, but that leaves you with one less to work with so it is not ideal. A scrunchy or rubber band can be used in some cases, but not to hold back hair that has been styled, or locks that are too short. Really long hair will still slip into the sink, and shorter stuff will not be able to collect completely. This method of keeping hair out of the way is better used as a quick styling technique because a single tail will just flop into the water as you bend over to rinse, and if pieces are too short, they will still fall forward, or slip loose to cause you trouble. If you opt for this technique, you will get goo mixed in when doing spa treatments, and you will still get frustrated when trying to wash. It is not even an option if you have already styled, so using to prevent cosmetic contamination is probably not realistic.
Bands, Clips, Ribbons And Bows
Tightly gathered strands can result in damage or odd bumps, and they don’t work well for all types, so many females opt for a looser hold in order to prevent problems. To gather strands back without being too snug, clips, bows or headbands are the go to options. Clips can work well, but they are incredibly time consuming, and head bands are quick, but not all types work with all types of hair. Bows pretty much fall into the clip category so the results will be similar. If pinning back hair to keep it dry while washing, you would need several clips or barrettes to do the job. They may hold well enough to be effective, but unless you use a large number, you will only be clipping the front portion of hair. For a facial treatment this is fine, but if you bend over, the back stuff will still flop down, so washing and rinsing is out of the question. A plastic headband can work well to gather everything and pull it back, but it will never be incredibly secure, so you will have to be careful. This technique also only works on the front, so certain situations will not show any benefit. Because it is quick to apply and reapply, many choose this as a preferred option.
A Better Way
Combine the speed of a headband with the security of a ponytail and you get a thick fabric band that holds snug around your head with elastic. The material is soft and comfortable, but also highly absorbent and easily washable. Unlike regular fashion headbands, this one is wider and more plush. You wouldn’t want to head out on a date with it still on your head, but it can help you get ready in less time and with less frustration involved. It works with long, medium or short hair, and it is incredibly useful for any time you want to keep your hair out of your face. If you are freshly showered and the strands are still wet, it will even promote drying as it absorbs any stray drips. Use it to pin back hair as you wash your face, use it to hold back your do when applying makeup, or keep it back for long periods while setting curls, applying a mud mask or just about anything else. The gentle hold is secure enough to keep your locks in place, but also light enough to prevent damage or messing of freshly styled hair.
Our Bamboo Head Band is the perfect product to ease certain tasks in the bathroom, and it is made from a high quality material that is sustainable and functional at the same time. Bamboo is eco-friendly, but it is also super soft and absorbent when compared to cotton. The design of this band is key to functionality. It has what almost looks like a knot in the front, and it is much wider in the rear. This allows for maximum vision, but it also allows you to gather all hair and leave your whole face uncovered. The thin part in the front can rest at the top of your fore head, and the remainder will frame your face as it circles behind your head. The fatter portion is there to adapt to differing lengths. It will act as a regular band, or you can expand it to form a pocket. This eliminates the problem that occurs when longer back potions flop forward when you bend and move because short or long, all hair will be held in place. The strong elastic takes up the entire interior so every part will add to the grip, and it will not wear out, even with constant use.

- To put it on, simply pull down over the top of your head.
