Review: The Style Saver Scarf

October 4, 2009

I will never—ever—ride without my Style Saver Scarf again. While I haven’t got much of a hairstyle, and, in fact, don’t often mind the “helmet hair” look on my wavy, sometimes frizzy locks, the epic, 2,700-mile road trip I took this summer made me a firm fan of the simple scarf modeled on the satin pillowcases of the 1950s.

I tried a cotton bandana under my helmet in July 2008. It absolutely did not fit, and I took it right off.

I have owned a scarf for several months, as well as helping sew them for my friend and fellow rider, business owner Cindi Servante. I had been reluctant to actually try the scarf out, as I have attempted wearing other types of scarves under my helmet in the past (notably, a good old cotton bandana on the previous summer’s vacation). My assumption was that the scarf would be uncomfortable as an extra layer between my head and helmet; sometimes even my ponytail holder drives me crazy. When I ride, I want complete comfort; otherwise, I find myself constantly fiddling with whatever is bothering me, rather than paying full attention to the bike and the road.

The Style Saver Scarf ended up being a dream come true on each day of my 2,700-mile ride. Not only did it help ease my helmet on and off my sometimes sweaty head, it decimated my biggest distraction when riding—the tiny little loose hairs that often fly into my eyes, across my nose, or tickle my cheek, causing me immeasurable discomfort inside my helmet.

I am so grateful for the revelation that caused Cindi to design this scarf. Maybe someday I will have stylish hair, and the scarf will help my hair look more attractive at the end of a long day of riding, but in the meantime, I will not be without my scarf, as it allows me to enjoy both my daily rides and my epic journeys with comfort, ease—and without distraction. Thank you, Cindi!
