Headband XL for sun protection
If you wear this headband spread over your hair it’s ideal for hiding your braids or for protecting your scalp against the sun. The sections you make while installing real or synthetic dreads create new hair partings. These partings are normally not exposed to the sun and this is why you get a sunburn faster. This headband prevents this and also looks cool!
Besides this, your hair will also be lifted by the headband, this way your dreads will not touch your neck! Also read our previously published blog about: “how to take care of your dreads in the summer”
