I am pretty fussy about headcovering things, but this pretied bandana is about as comfy as they come. Also, you can’t see here, but it is a lovely turquoise shade. I don’t wear a lot of turquoise; maybe I should.
The weight is a little thick for this time of year, but my main worry was that it wouldn’t have good “hold” at the hairline. There’s no front view on the website, so I was very nervous.
But no fear! It has a very neat border, almost like a plain snood. Those were extremely popular when I was first married, but you don’t see nearly as many of them now – at least on the street. And actually, this tichel feels more snug than a snood, which is good, because those used to slip a lot on me.
I don’t know if the snugness will be irritating over time. I have been wearing it nonstop for about six hours now, however, and so far, so good. A friend of mine admitted that she hates having anything on her head. I guess I am more tolerant, as these things go.
This is a mitzvah that I have grappled with, more than once, because it can be very difficult. Especially in HOT WEATHER. Ick.
