We received a lot of hair accessories to review this year; the latest is the Dannaband, a scarf type hair band that can be worn under a helmet to prevent fly-away or tangled hair, or after wearing a helmet, solving the problem of what women riders can do with their hair after going on a motorcycling ride. The Dannaband, a play on the word bandana, can be worn several ways, but because of the elastic in the back (as opposed to a knot) it always fits the same without adjusting, resizing or tying.
One of the founders of the Dannaband is an avid motorcyclist.
For me, I always hate how the knot I tie to keep a bandana on is too tight and puts my hair in knots in the back. The Dannaband is not a traditional bandana; you don't have to worry about getting your hair caught in the knot, or the knot slipping. The elastic at the back of the Dannaband stays in place and lets your hair lay flat in the back.
The Dannaband in two different cotton styles.
What began as a simple idea for a girl's hair accessory has evolved into a product for women. The Dannaband comes in many different fun patterns, and except for the sport collection, are made of cotton. The sport collection, which is temporarily out of stock, was my favorite because it's made from a polyester wicking material. The cotton ones are nice, too.
The Dannaband can be worn as a wide headband to cover your hair under a helmet.
The Dannaband comes in two sizes, medium and large. The medium fit me fine, but Genevieve found the medium too big for her small sized head. Because of the elastic back, you need the Dannaband to fit snug so it doesn't slip around on your head. Unfortunately, medium is the smallest size available. The Dannaband is a nice alternative to your average doo-rag or bandana.
