As a 1-star item, the White Headband comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail or 30,000 cash for each slot.

Abilities

The White Headband comes with Ink Recovery Up as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. As a 0-star item, the White Headband comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with a Super Sea Snail, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will also add another secondary ability slot to the White Headband. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the White Headband by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since it is made by the SquidForce brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slots.

Trivia

  • The White Headband shares its brand, ability, rarity, and even part of its name with the White LS in Splatoon.
  • The White Headband originally lacked the gray stripe through the middle. This can be seen in some promotional material from before the release of Splatoon.
  • Based on its SplatNet 2 price, it can be deduced that the normal price of the White Headband would be Cash 300 if it were purchasable from Headspace rather than being a part of the starting gear.
  • As of Version 2.0.0 of Splatoon 2, the White Headband and the rest of the starting gear are the only pieces of gear that cannot have their original abilities restored if purchased through SplatNet 2, unless if ordered from another player through Murch.
