    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

    I wear a BUFF band, excellent for wicking moisture and they come in a lot of prints. I have a blue one and an orange one with funny prints. I can wear it as cap under my bike helmet if I bike to the gym, then wear it as a headband during my Zumba class. I sometimes wear a clean one to bed if my hair is wrapped or in pincurls.

    Am I the only one who thought she was just way too dramatic. The surgeon general? At first I thought it was supposed to be funny. Then I realized, she's not doing that great of an acting job. I should have prefaced this by saying I've always liked her as an actress. This was bad. Boooo Nicole, Boo...good concept, though. Two takeaways: "moisture" is not pronounced "moresture" and "escape" is not pronounced "eckscape." But press on, sista girl (and I don't mean your nails!)

    i know this is old but i had to defend Nicole for being truthful not dramatic---

    the surgeon general did release a report on African American women's health issues awhile back and "hair" was a reason for low fitness lifestyle adherence. she discussed it at the bronner's brother hair show last year, i think. i will see if i can find a link.....

    i plan on trying the head wrap. i sweat ALOT...so i will report back if it works or not.

    Not sure what happened to my last post but there is a noticeable difference. May not be 100% dry though.

    I'd love to know if you ladies like this. There was only one or two real testimonies in this thread...when I get into a workout the sweat drips off of the back of my ponytail. bc my hair is longish the entire length will soak up the sweat. I wonder if this will help reduce the amount of times I need to cow ash/manipulate my hair.

    I brought mine about a year ago. It helps keep my hair tame. When i go to the gym i put my hair up in a ponytail then tie it nice and snug on my head. I do not remove till my head is completely dry. After my work out my edges are nice and smooth. I like that its not made of cotton so its not absorbing the oil out of my hair. All in all i think it does the job and im glad i brought it.
