    hey guys I play tennis 3 times a week, and my I have a head that sweats like a pig.

    I am wondering which of these I should buy to solve this problem: Nike Bandana, Headband, or Cap?




    Thanks

    All of them do the trick. The hat blocks sun but also gets in some peoples way, but it is also said to be the best thing to wear to protect from sunstroke, outside of sunblock of course.

    how are bandanas for sissies? I'm presuming that your a much bigger sissy than Lopez, Nalbandian, Nadal, Moya and Federer.

    I agree with a dry fit hat. If you get a white one, you should be prepared to clean it; unless you like the whole sweaty look. My white hat turns get a little grey/brown from the sweat and stuff. A black one would be best or whichever you perfer. White gets dirty though.

    He said headbands, not bandanas. Blake is really the only one that wears a headband that I see.

    Is Blake a sissie than? I wear a headband when I get a haircut and spike my hair up(use to wear visors, but no one really wears them anymore) and they look pretty good on me. Many basketball players also wear them as well. Try telling them that they're sisses, you'll get yourself killed. I guess you have a humongous head and doesn't look good you.

    i like the bandanas when i have long hair. head bands just dont cut it for me when i have long hair, doesn't hold it in place well. caps get in my way, and i can't serve with them, at all. also they feel the hottest. ideally when i have short hair i dont use any, but just use my thumb to wick sweat away as necessary.

    i like the bandanas, they do their job and keep the sweat away and are easier to clean than hats.

    Rule no.1
    Headbands shall only be worn under the two conditions of hair
    (a) Bald/Shaven
    (b) Afro

    I sadly have to agree but adding the ones with long hair. In that case it acomplish a double end.

    I've got the headband and it makes my hair look ridculous lol. Best if you've got a shaved head. The bandana will get all soggy and horrible. Caps are pretty good

    I find if it's windy, Caps do nothing. If you wear a forwards cap - it gets blown off by the wind coming at you, and vice versa for a backwards cap. It's a hassle to keep changing. I just wear a bandana, cos I sweat a lot too. But i only recommend them for people with Federers hair. MINIMUM. I saw one guy with Spikey hair wear one - nono
