I wear a headband almost every day, but after about an hour I always get a headache from it and have to take it off for a little bit. Does this happen to anyone else?

Yes this used to happen to me sometimes when I wore headbands. Its probably a good idea to try it on if you can before buying to make sure its not too tight.

It happens to me with some headbands. I like getting ones that are padded at the temples. If they are too tight, I stretch them out by putting books, table, chair, pillows, anything in between them and leave it for a day or two. Sounds weird, but it works!

Yes, that's why I don't wear handbands. The other reason I don't wear them is because sometimes they slip off.

I get this a lot, especially since I wear glasses. I find that fabric headbands give me less of a headache.

This happens to me as well! It also happens if I wear glasses or sunglasses for too long. Or if I wear headphones that go behind my ear for a long time.

The only seem that seems to help is to just not wear anything that touches the area behind my ears for too long. So I only wear my stretchy elastic headband to hold my hair back when I'm working out. Sucks because some of those JCrew type headbands could be so cute!
