There may have been a method to the madness in the 80’s with the terrycloth headband. The towel-like material draws moisture away from your head and into the head band. For the fashionista, there are turban style headbands like the ones pictured above or you can get the regular headband from your local beauty supply.

Keeping flat edges not your issue? For the curly and kinky who want to keep your coif tamed a protective style like the one pictured above can help keep hair tamed.
