I love wearing elastic hair bands to keep fly aways and baby hairs out of my face when I work out. I have very fine, slippery hair so most types of hair bands don't stay on my head well. I had originally gotten a pack of three pastel colors years and years ago to try them out. They worked out pretty well for me. Then about a year back I figured I'd get more. I was bummed to find out that they were bigger than the original set that I bought. The popped right off the back of my head even when just sitting around. Clearly this wouldn't work if I was running. I left the hair bands in my drawer because I couldn't bring myself to throw them out. Today I decided that I would try to fix the problem. One of the new hair bands is the same/similar color to our softball team jersey. I snipped off the stitched area of the band and sewed it back together. It worked out perfectly! Now my hair band fits my head and I didn't waste the $5 I spent on them. I think I will do this to the rest of the pack too!
