Could you give me more details on your modified scunci? Do you have the scuncis wrapped around your head or do you have an ear cutout like the original post? Also, I understand that you're doubling up on the scuncis but don't get your elastics.
Thanks again all, Zonker
i don't cut the ear holes as jay describes. truthfully, i don't know just what shape his head was, but that wasn't even something that would work for me! wish he was still around as i'd like to ask him about it. i just wrap the top scunci around my head. it covers just at the top most part of my ear.
the second one wraps around from my mouth to the back of the neck. with this arrangement, i find that my lips are pressed against my teeth.
BUT i found that the scuncis don't have enough "grip" i guess is the word, for lack of better. i found that my lips would still part. i found some scunci elastics that had a shorter circumference than the headbands. but if i used those instead of the headbands, they didn't stay seated very well. so finally figured to use the headbands and elastics together. that was the winning combination.
the problem i have in explaining this is there doesn't seem to be a "stock number" on these scunci headbands. if i could find THAT, then i would truly be in business. i could also be telling folks which scunci bands to get.
it remains to this day hard for me to re-supply. one of the things that works in my favor is that you can put the hair bands thru the wash/dry cycle and they will shrink back down. they have a tendency to stretch the more nights you wear them. i have enough to go through a cycle of wearing a set for two nights then switch to a new pair. then at the end of the week, i throw them in the laundry and shrink them back down.
i wish i had a better way to explain this. it's really quite remarkable that it works at all. i just have to recommend you experiment and see what works for you. you can find scuncis (hairbands and elastic) in the hair care aisle of you local drugstore. they are around five bucks for a pack of five.
if you have any more questions or if i haven't explained it to your satisfaction, please feel free to ask.
