Default How to get FOE to stay on your head???

My FOE headbands keep sliding off my daughter's head, so I tried one on, and it slid off my head within a minute. The headbands fit nicely, but they are so soft and slippery. I searched the threads about how to make them stay on better, but no luck. They're so cute, but how do you get them to stay on a girl's head? Am I the only one with this problem? Thanks!

I have the same problem....Was so excited to get my FOE from a group buy and when i made headbands for myself, they kept falling off. I thought maybe they were too tight so I made them looser but still have the same problem... Sorry I can't be any help...but hoping someone will have the answer. XOXO Amy

Try adding some non slip stuff to the inside. Or like a thin beading of silicone. Should keep it from slipping off

Sounds like a silly response, but I think some heads aren't made for the elastic headbands. My daughter and I (both being Asian) have "not so round" back of the heads. Whatever non-slip method I use for the elastic headbands, they just kind of slip off. For customers with rounder heads, I've heard that the silicone inside works. Good luck!

I agree....I have a head that's not made for elastic headbands. No matter what kind they always slip.

I just a thin line of hot glue, silicone works great too. I ran out of silicone so did a thin line of hot glue and it worked awesome

I wear them and for the most part, they stay in. They slip a little in the back and I just adjust them. My girls wear them too and like them. I have made mine alitlle bigger than usual because I don't like them tight, gives me aheadache. My 7 year old wears them too. these are actually about the only headband she can wear.

Is this a common problem? I was thinking about buying some but now I am not so sure. Do they stay on babies or toddlers? I am not a big fan of the crochet headbands and thought this would be a good alternative but now reconsidering. Thanks!!

These are great ideas, ladies! Thank you so much! I will try the silicone and the hot glue. Don't laugh....but I was thinking about hot gluing some no-slip grip or shelf liner to the inside...so I'm really glad that I asked the question! The hot glue or silicone will at least be clear and will look so much better! Should I do this for my shows, or just sell them without the hot glue or silicone?
