    There's a cheaper option at sally's made from "moisture-wicking" material for like $5. No thank you Ms. Nicole.

    Meh, I use something similar to this (wrap cap). [​IMG]

    I put my hair up in a banana clip, wrap it around the clip (secured with bobby pens), and put the wrap on with it attaching at the back of my head, I like it because the velcro makes it easy to adjust and tighten it.

    I thought she went by Nicki Kodjoe :/

    I wonder if that would work for me when I get my hair straightened.

    I'm sorry but I just cowash the sweat & funk out! My hair gets stank a dank dank when I workout so I just cowash & wet bun & save my $$ :look: I workout 6 days a week BTW & rollerset on Saturday after my spinning class & have to cowash by Monday. Oh well. I have curls for a couple of days. I don't rollerset weekly either but try to do so at least 2X a month.

    I love Nicole, but I already bought the cheap one from Sally's and it works fine. I can't part with 30 bucks for one when I can get 6 for that price.

    I should have came to this post before i brought the nicole ari wrap...i paid in total with shipping 25 bucks i think, there is a 5 buck off code when you friend the FB site. It seems to work fine for me i sweat alot on my hair line but if i knew that Sallys had one similar i would have tried that first. Well you live and learn.

    How would you know that the one at Sallys is "just as good" if you never tried Nicoles?

    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.

    But hers looks cuter...like something I could wear out of the house.

    The mesh one doesn't look like it should be worn in public.

    She couldn't find a better distribution deal? $40 for a scarf that I'm sure cost much less than $5 to make? I'll wait. If it's truly great, it will get popular, she'll get a better distributer... and sell if for the $10 that it's worth :look:

    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

    [​IMG]

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

    Any naturals using this on their straight styles??

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

    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.
