Do headbands stretch out?
Plastic headbands don’t have much give to them, so they’ ll only be able to stretch out less than 1 in (2.5 cm). If your headband still doesn’t fit, consider buying a different style or a larger size.
Why do headbands hurt behind my ears?
Headbands usually hurt for two reasons: pressure and irritation. Some headbands fit too snug around the head, applying painful pressure. Many headbands also irritate the area just behind the ears, where the ends of headbands sit. If your headband is too tight, gently stretch it over a book for 24 hours.
