@diadall Sally's has 2 versions, one that looks like a durag and this one that can be worn out, it's just a sweatband that looks the same as Nicole's for only $3.99



I almost bought one but I usually cowash after my workouts so I'm not sure how it performs.

I bought one of these Buff Headbands for $13 on Ebay. Someone mentioned in the fitness section. I have not used it yet. I want to support the Save Your Do wrap but that price and shipping is too much. I dont feel the need to take a hit on price standards just to be supportive.

Here's that thread http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...d.php?t=602843

Any naturals using this on their straight styles??

I highly doubt anything will work for me, I sweat like crazy in my head.

I like that Nicoles product looks sporty. I hate seeing those Mammy looking wraps at the Gym. I usually just work out in a ponytail and call it a day. The wraps posted above look Horrid. I am going to give Nicole's product a try.

Plus I have to support my sisters in business first- F sallys.
I agree. I wish it were only 3.00 like the others, but I guess you have to pay more for the cuteness. I will also be buying Nicoles.

So I tried the one I got from Sally's today and I was not impressed. All it did pretty much was keep the sweat from getting into my eyes, but I can use a regular terry cloth headband for that. I'll wear it because I bought it, but I won't be breaking my neck to get another one.

I don't know if Nicole's will work better than the one from Sally's or not.

@lisatamika - thanks for that mini review. i have the one pictured below and it was okay at my hairline, but...unfortunately for me, i sweat all up in and through my head. i've been searching for a solution forever and hell, i'd pay $100 if i found a headband that WORKED!

i have the headband pictured, its okay on my hairline, but not perfect and it does leave a line of demarcation on my hair. i think i'm going to give Nicole Ari Parker's Save Your Do a shot and hope and pray that this will FINALLY be the answer i'm looking for!

@camilla thank you so much for posting this. i hadn't heard about it!

ROTFL at Edge Control Technology! This is NOT an option for me. My ENTIRE head sweats during a work out...tons of sweat! The only way I can have sweat free hair is to water only rinse or cowash after a work out. I can understand how my way isn't feasible for some though...

I'll just keep it old school with a cotton rag on my head while I WORK OUT. It's really not about looking cute for me. I get great satisfaction from a soaking wet cotton scarf at the end of my work out.

I have this one at home and the ponytail mesh version as well. both were about $6 at Walmart. I havent tried the mesh one yet, but the headband works great for sweat in the front of the hairline, not so well for the sweat around the back hairline, which is where I tend to sweat moreso. The mesh one is not as cute for wearing outside your house, and I got that one for when I will do Tae-bo at home, but I wont be back on Taebo till probably next month, so I will try the mesh one then

On Monday I will start going to our company gym. Now, I saw these headbands and was very interested in trying it. Normally, I'd wear a head tie w/ a sweat band and by the time I get home I can either co wash or pull my hair back into a ponytail, something. However, at this predominantly 'clear' gym at my job I feel some type of way about tying down my whole head, so the most i'll prob do is wear a sweat band and then deal w/ my hair by the time I reach home from the work gym.

There are work outs that I do that I only nee something in the very front. Like if I do a quick jog or a quick 10 min circuit training DVD or something. Most times when I do those I really dont want to have to deal with my hair getting damp around the edges. So a solution like this would work for those days. And it is why I got the Buff head band. I looks like the same technology as the Saveyourdo and has way more reviews (and has been around longer).

But when I do my major workout, I know this wrap could not help me because I would sweat all through out my hair. Still I am looking forward to this Buff giving me some flexibilty to get a a few more quicks bursts of cardio in mid week.

Welp, I caved in and ordered this yesterday. I hope it helps some. My hair is short and i don't have the desire to be cowashing during the week after a workout.

One of my best friends swear by it. She and I no longer live in the same state so I can only take her word for it as I've never seen her use it. She has relaxed, APL hair. She sweats really bad in her head. She wraps her hair then put on the full head save your do wrap. When she's done with intense cardo -- kickboxing, zumba, etc -- her hair is dry.

I have the medium sized band from Nicole and it works great on the part that it covers, I actually should have just sucked it up and got the full head wrap but I was trying to look cute at the gym. I am really glad I supported her despite the steep price but I think her product is worth it and I like the brand image she is going for eg proceeds to charity etc
