Review + Win It!: Hoo Rag

I am pretty fanatical about keeping my hair pulled back when I’m cooking.

I think it stems from my first job in a deli; I’d come home after a long shift and hop right into the shower to get all of the bits of food the food slicers had shot into my hair. Even with a ponytail and headband, things always ended up in my hair. I’m still not sure how.

Today, I don’t have to worry about meat slicers, but I still highly prefer to have my hair tied back as much as possible. That usually involves at least two hair elastics, a headband and – occasionally – a bobby pin or two. So, when the folks at Hoo Rag asked me to try one out, I was stoked.

A Hoo Rag is a seamless bandana that can be wrapped and worn multiple ways. It’s thin enough that you can wrap it up and use it as a pony tail holder, and large enough that you can cover most of your head with it if you wanted to. I was really impressed with how easy it was to maneuver my hair into and not make it look like a mess. (I’m often hair-challenged, so this was a feat!) It doesn’t stretch out like other headbands I’ve had and it’s washable – which makes it perfect for the kitchen.

It also comes in a lot of different, fun designs too. I chose the colorful Groovy-Hoo, because I’m super drawn to bright colors:

They also have some fun cooking-related, ones:
