These are nicer than standard hairbands, and that’s the full position. In essence a tied strip of gentle, a little bit shiny elastic, they’re in neutral colours which are nicely discreet. The gentle elasticity usually means that they are also considerably comfier when you’re wearing them on your wrist rather than on your hair- as opposed to usual hairbands you could quickly fail to remember you had just one of these on your wrist. As they are flat and tender, they will certainly minimise kinks, though i really do not see that they’ll remove them wholly. Even so they are unquestionably potent adequate to act like a usual headband- they don’t slide out, and they do not absence stretch. If you’re a common user of headbands, i would undoubtedly say ‘treat yourself’ and advocate a set of these, if you consider they’ll go well with your type.I have very thick hair that frequently breaks hair bobbles, but these are no trouble. They stretched marginally which helped, and they do not experience like they are damaging my hair.I have medium length thick curly hair and was a bit dubious that these would keep it all in place. Even so they doi run a good deal way too and they held my hair in place while managing a fifty percent marathon the other working day. The colours are lovely and they also look great on my wrist when they are not in my hair.I have long, solid, curly hair that can be complicated to take care of, therefore i frequently dress in it tied back again. Many hair ties are complicated to clear away and bring about damage to my hair. These hair ties are simple to use, cozy to dress in, straightforward to get rid of and stylish much too.These are good – definitely cute to dress in on your wrist and do not leave a dent in your hair, even right after hours of it becoming up.The item arrived on time and in brilliant pink shiny envelope with a personalised name tag. I’m a sucker for adorable packaging and compact element so genuinely cherished this notion. I have tried using the bands themselves and they do particularly what there meant to do. Over-all genuinely happy with the service and item.But i observed when i went running they. If you want to tie your hair up when it’s damp and have soft curls, these bands are superior. But i observed when i went jogging they failed to fairly give me ample hold and they slipped a little bit. But they are snug to throw on your wrist and wonderful colors.I truly wasn’t confident that they could be any better than my typical elastic hair ties. When i to start with been given these, i actually wasn’t certain that they could be any far better than my typical elastic hair ties, and in point assumed they ended up it’s possible just a little bit gimmicky, particularly considering the fact that they are marketed as becoming wonderful for carrying on your wrist as nicely as in your hair. On the other hand, they have proved me erroneous. They are straightforward to tie your hair up with, and they preserve the hair well in position. Extra importantly, they really feel definitely relaxed, with none of the tightness of the bands i ordinarily use. They are also significantly much easier to get rid of – generally i have to carefully unwind my hair ties so they you should not rip some hair out when i choose them off, but these can very easily just be slid straight out with not a pulled hair to be felt. I like the understated colors of this set, and they seem to be as though they’ll final a superior prolonged time. I have been using the same 1 for about a week, and it has not stretched or absent loose at all. Extremely amazed, and very likely to get some much more in other colors now i’ve uncovered them.5 loops of textured elasticated ribbon with a refined glitter thread woven into the material. They’re fairly classy looking as considerably as hairbands go, and would perform with a business outfit as nicely as for each day and sports use. They operate like a noose, and are considerably gentler on the hair than the normal elastic loop. I am not absolutely sure they’d be robust plenty of for the ‘croydon facelift’ glance, but great for a wise ponytail.They are simple to use, just loop in excess of and pop in excess of your ponytail. The only downside i can see is that the gap they make when doubled is relatively little. So i imagine these would not be as good on thick hair.Pretty excellent no-tangle ponytail holders. These ponytail holders appear in good neutral colors, have fantastic elasticity and, very best of all, my associate claimed they do not get tangled in her hair, so, over-all, incredibly pleased with these.So numerous + details but toughness a core difficulty. I was so thrilled to see these in the vine programme possessing seen them advert nauseam on every single youtube natural beauty blogger. I opted for the ink assortment which is basically a blend of greys and blacks which make them suitable for function. These are in essence a strip of elastic tied into a loop they have the tiniest amount of money of shimmer in them but you would want to be up shut to see that. The pros:-very at ease to put on-acceptable for the office-substantially cuts down the kink in wet hair-a lot less limited than standard hair ties-does not pull hair when remaining eradicated-fewer hair trapped in the band when removedthe negatives-longevity is an situation-extend out and develop into way too saggy just after a few days regular use-the tapered close gets frayed fairly speedily building them untidy for function use-they never eliminate the kink in soaked hair-price pointoverall these are a wonderful thought and i like the item but for the price tag place, the concerns with toughness is a actual set back again for me and the cause why i individually would not acquire them following these are worn out. The to start with several days have been seriously excellent but then i found that the bands stretched and the tapered ends are not treated so they frayed. You do get 5 in a pack which is great but i am heading via these rather promptly. For the price tag place i would require to see greater longevity and use out of them. You could probably make them previous for a longer time if you did not wear them everyday like i have but i just can’t make mine past. I never make them also limited and once my hair is up for the working day it stays up i’m not one particular to continue to keep having it down and redoing it.Less problems than typical hair bands (even snag free) but just not pretty great ample. First and foremost these are remarkable to your standard elasticated hair bands and even snag-free of charge elasticated bands as they are normally threads woven close to an inner tube of elastic which more than time can capture hairs and rip them out if entangled specifically if with a metallic be part of. This is like the hair tie equivalent of spandex, the fabric is woven with elasticated fibres providing the whole matter extend and almost nothing to snag on. As an individual with really quite thick hair primarily in the ‘kitchen’ or lower again of the head i’m endlessly shedding strands here and there enravelled in standard hair bands, i’ve not lost one hair just after prolonged even sleeping use of these. That would be five stars for me but, there are additional flaws that deliver the rating down for me. The ties on their own are a very little unfastened in the knots and you have to thrust the knots limited normally your pony will slip as you will not be in a position to wrap it close to ample moments to get a tight keep. Even with the knot tightened i was still a little bit sad with the tautness, and had to redo my ponytail a couple occasions thanks to slippage, i would not depend on these holding my thick hair up for an extended time wherever it has to appear best but they are fantastic for an common/casual surroundings. Also the small knot can get bothersome, i know it’s a ‘thing’ now to have decorative bits back again on your hair ties (bobbles, bunny ears, cloth to appear like a right scarf tie and many others) but listed here it really is just a nothing at all of almost nothing and a bit irritating when you run your hand back by means of your hair. I can also see these owning a shorter lifetime-use as becoming like spandex, spandex will give over time and strain that means you can expect to rapidly stop up with saggy hair ands exacerbating the wrapping and support difficulties. As for the ‘kink factor’ it truly is divided, on my tremendous thick hair i had no kink even following sleeping overnight with them but my mum who has significantly thinner hair than mine did have a slight line but maybe which is since she was equipped to get the tie all over her pony tail at minimum after extra than i managed and as a result the strain was increased and concentrated on the hair?total if it wasn’t for the ‘tight enough’ and saggy variable they would have 5 stars, i didn’t have any strain traces but thinner hair does so it depends on your hair texture and what you want from your ponytail.They never cut into my wrist like usual hair ties. They do use out rather swiftly although and they are a lot more costly in comparison to many others but i would endorse them.Cozy and elegant hairbands. This established has a attractive range of inky neutral colours, and this style of hairband is so significantly extra comfortable than typical types, they also never minimize off the blood supply to your wrist if you retain one helpful there.These hairbands are very soft and wide producing them come to feel a lot more at ease in your hair, they have a fantastic good quality come to feel to them. I won’t be able to say i would want to put on them on my wrist any more than many others as the finishes stick out, it in all probability appears a lot more noticeable than your ordinary band but on the in addition aspect they really don’t dig in. They hold my hair up nicely and. They hold my hair up properly and glimpse really lovable. The selection of colours signifies i can match them to my outfits. They also can be worn on the wrist devoid of leaving that hairband indent. I seriously like them and will be getting much more.Nice concept for developed-up hair ties but they soon stretch out of form. These are a great plan: grown-up hair ties that look wonderful and will not pull your hair. The ‘ink’ colour plan of black and greys is also discreet and adult. The trouble, even though, is that whilst these are excellent at 1st, they quickly overstretch and lose their elasticity. That may be fantastic if you only use them often as i do for yoga etc. But if you want them for day to day or frequent use then they have to have to be replaced often.Hairbands for developed upslarge width that is tender stretchy & sort to hair, its challenging to get this tangled in your hair. I like the several shades of grey & black – perfect for perform. I gave some to a pal whose daughter has afro hair & she stated these were the best she had attempted, gentle, light & no tangle.I really wasn’t convinced that they could be any better than my usual elastic hair tiesA bit posh, but worth itGreat Product & Service!Nice idea for grown-up hair ties but they soon stretch out of shapeHairbands for grown upsComfortable and stylish
I would like to introduce a guest blogger this week and an expert in Diabetes education. Enjoy this new material.Eating for Target Blood Glucose levelsImage from University of Illinois Extension Your Guide to Diet and DiabetesBy Donna Ryan RN, RD, MPH, CDE, FAADEAs a diabetes educator, I am humbled sometimes (okay, often) by what I learn from people who live with diabetes every day. Simple assessment questions can open the flood gates of information, or elicit one word answers. If I listen closely and ask probing questions, I occasionally get a glimpse into the fear, sadness and/or resignation of living with a disease that can cause incredibly high, and paradoxically low, blood sugar. In many patients, these extremes in blood sugars are intertwined and a focused assessment is needed. And though it is counterintuitive, I have found many patients who present with hyperglycemia and high blood glucose values have a history of hypoglycemia events.The body senses hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, as a life threatening event and patients have told me ‘I felt like I was going to die’, ‘I was frozen in my body’ and ‘it’s the worst feeling I have ever had’. Avoiding hypoglycemia is a survival mechanism and can have a deleterious effect on diabetes self-care behaviors. For example, the fear of hypoglycemia drives some people to not take their insulin or pills as ordered and to overeat in an attempt to prevent going low. This then can then lead to hyperglycemia, poor diabetes control, and likely, the label of ‘noncompliance’.I ask patients to tell me their hypoglycemia stories: How does it feel, how do you know you are low? How low does your sugar have to go to feel low? How do you treat it? Who helps you? And, ‘Do you sometimes not take your meds for fear of a low blood sugar or eat extra food to avoid a low’? Some amazing and humbling answers I have received include: ‘I don’t feel my lows until I’m in the 30s’ ‘My cat licks me in the middle of the night and wakes me up when I am low’. Or, ‘Jesus wakes me up in front of the refrigerator and sometimes He wakes me up when I’m on the floor and I crawl to the kitchen to get my juice’. Family members have told me they have to ‘pull grandma out from under the bed’ when she has a low blood sugar, which is where she rolls when she has an attack. I ask if they tell their doctor these stories, and many do not. Why? They believe it’s a part of having diabetes that they must live with, they are waiting until the next appointment to tell them (in 3-6 months), or they ‘forget’ to tell them. Some patients are surprised to learn that a severe, prolonged hypoglycemic event can be fatal.How can we intervene and help minimize the toll of hypoglycemia? Ask, listen and educate.Know who is high risk for hypoglycemiaAsk about signs, symptoms, frequency of hypoglycemiaEducate patients and families how to detect, prevent and treat hypoglycemiaEncourage patients to wear medical alert identificationTeach ALWAYS check blood sugars before taking your diabetes medicines. Why? If glucose is already low, it’s best to treat the low first.And most importantly: Notify the doctor of low blood sugars, as a change may be needed to the medical plan.Technology is now making it easier to detect low blood sugars. For patients with recurring and severe hypoglycemia, continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) are available to augment checking sugars with a meter. Some CGMs alert the patient when their glucose is going low.
