Sounds like you may have had her hair too tight?
I redo Daisy's every other day, sometimes daily, but at least every other day. If I don't, the hair gets tangles around it & also she is not a prissy girl (none of my girls are, but I wish they were! The prissiest dog I ever had was a boy, lol), so she gets into stuff all the time outside & somehow manages to get it on top of her head, in addition to the rest of her, lol.

My personal favourites were 1/4" light weight bands - they are the perfect size

I take Lisi's out at least once every day---often twice & redo.
Kitzel's gets taken out numerous times as Lisi pulls/bites his hair while playing! His t-knot is heavy too so it "slides" and needs to be re-done so he can see! I don't make mine very tight so they do slip---but that is better to me than risking an issue w/it being too tight. My groomer ALWAYS uses a band & make them MUCH too tight. I always re-do them the minute we get home!

I like this one but I'm not an expert. They are small and don't snag the hair as the latex ones.
