It’s sincerely difficult for me to want to wash my hair. It’s just so much work to have it dry (if I sleep with it wet or damp in a ponytail it won’t dry all night!) and then to get it straight. But I sweat so much in spin I simply cannot make my hair last more than one day..and when you go 3-4x week thats a lot of washing and drying that I literally do not have time for.
True North has literally been a life saver for me. They all are crafted so well and they are so durable. I wash them in the washing machine and let them lay flat to dry and they are just as springy as they were the day I got them. The width of the headband is larger than I would choose just for looks but let me tell you, it spans so much of your hair that it literally soaks your sweat up and best of all they are super affordable at $7.
To make my hair last I wear it up in a high bun and a True North headband. They are designed to go down to your forehead past your hairline, mine sits back a little bit only because thats where it more comfortably fits with my widow’s peak.
After class I leave it on until I get home about 15-20 minutes and let it continue to soak everything up and then let my hair down and run large sprays of dry shampoo through it all to get anything that hasn’t dried. I’ve noticed if I take it off too early my hair doesn’t do as well. Honestly I can go for 3 days and 2 classes on a single wash.
During my spin classes it 100% stays in place–I’ve been testing these for a few months because I really wanted to be sure. Once I put them on I pull it slightly down over my ears and it really doesn’t budge!
I love all the vibrant prints and colors that they come in. Definitely check out the shop on Etsy!
Thanks to True North Collection for sending me some headbands to try!
