My new sinar tichel purchased from Sara Attali Designs! Totally LOVE this tichel! It was very comfortable minus the slippage issues. Speaking of slippage issues, I am going to discuss the issues I have no matter what type of “non-slip” product I use.
I began my journey with a cheap strip of muslin from fabric I had laying around. This worked when I wore my scarves down further on my forehead. It was secure but I noticed many women wearing them along their hairline. I liked the look and wanted to try it. So I branched out.
I had old towels I had been planning on using for a different project, so I thought, I could cut a strip to mimick the velvet no-slip headbands that are out there. While they work ok along the hairline, I struggled with slippage. So, I finally broke down. I purchased two velvet headbands made for tichels.
I just got them on Friday just before Shabbat. I was excited to try them, as I had major hopes this would alleviate my problems since I had heard such great reviews about them. Yeah….I struggle more with these headbands than I have ever struggled before. The first night was great, everything felt secure and comfortable; however, every subsequent day since then, it slips within a few hours. I seriously think the biggest problem is how fine my hair is. I have extremely baby fine hair and not much of it. I do find that when I tie my tichel when my hair is still wet from showering that it stays much better than if I tie it on unwashed, dry hair. But then again, that isn’t always the case.
So all this to say that I am still working on finding a solution that is closer to 100% no slippage. Any ideas? Solutions? Please let me know! =]
