Helper Headbands: The "Gamechangers"

Posted on 09 June 2020

Born out of the enthusiasm and innovation of our friends on the frontline, our Helper Headbands were designed intentionally with healthcare workers in mind.

Nurses at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center

We have a long-standing partnership with medical facilities nationwide - in this year alone we’ve donated over 1,800 hats to cancer centers across the country! - and when the COVID-19 crisis hit, these frontline heroes told us that long days in a medical mask were taking a toll on their ears. As we were pivoting our manufacturing efforts towards making comfortable face masks, we realized a solution for long days in medical masks was also needed. Enter: Helper Headbands.

Adapted from our lightweight and breathable Nordic Headbands, our Helper Headbands have buttons sewn on to hook your mask to and relieve ears from painful chafing that comes from wearing elastic masks throughout a long shift. In addition to relieving ear pain, our Helper Headbands are sweat-wicking and keep hair off of your face, perfect for marathon shifts in a medical facility, grocery store, or restaurant.
