Headbands normally bother me but in the excitement of the wedding day, my headband didn’t bother me at all. Mine was also a super thin metal one. I think in our day-to-day lives, we’re not on an adrenaline rush so that’s why it bothers you. I think on the wedding day, it’ll likely be fine.

How many hours are you planning on wearing yours?

@minniemluv:  I think that should be fine. I had mine on for about that long and it didn’t bother me. I know on a normal day, it would have. Even super lightweight sunglasses bug me on a normal day. I don’t have any tips for how to prevent the headache associated with wearing a headband. You can try pushing it backwards and forwards to see if a position change helps.

Take a piece of thin felt and hot glue it to the inside of the headband. Do either grey or a color close to your hair.  I do this to all of my headbands because other wise I get horrible headaches.

I’d try wearing it for a day to see how it feels – like maybe a weekend day around the house if you don’t want to have it out and about.

I’ve found that headbands that feel a little tight do really start to hurt after several hours, and then after I remove it, my head is still sore for a day or two sometimes.

You might try “stretching” it just a little.  Pull the metal apart a few times and see if the tension loosens a bit to where it isn’t so tight.  Obviously be careful so you don’t break it or make it too loose.

@minniemluv:  Will anyone see the metal parts that are pressing? If not, bandaids work amazing!! Just wrap them around and no more pain.
