Headband Headaches

Headband Headaches

Is it just me or do others have the same issue?

I don't wear headbands because they give me major headaches, especially behind the ears, I avoid them like the plague. But during my trip to Moab, Utah, I picked up a couple of pretty cotton fabric headbands, than can open up to look like a bandana. Moab is quite the hippie town and it inspired me to go a little boho. I tried them on in the shop for about 10 seconds and everything seemed perfectly fine, of course, that's plenty of time to know whether this style would be headache free right?

I found one of them on the bathroom floor as I was about to rush out to pick up the kids from day care (all my cool stuff belongs on the floor these days, it's my very own personalized lottery system that my children have devised for me, I never know which of my belongings will have the pleasure of being scattered across the house for the day). Anyway, I decided to put it on. I kid you not, within 5 minutes, I noticed my head throbbing, "I'm gonna fight this" I told myself, "I shall conquer the headband".  

Well, by the time I got home 15 minutes later, all that pressure was a little too much for me, it gave me a headache, triggered my sinuses and now I need a nice head massage. So much for boho chic...but they're so pretty...maybe I should loosen them a little....does this happen to anyone else?
