I can understand your frustration as well. I'm curious to hear what

you think when you are able to check out the headscicle. Also,

those waves/caps you see on the top of the bands, from how I

understand it, they aren't to keep the head from growing upwards,

they are more for balancing out the band so it won't rotate and move

around as much.
