The White Headband is white with a thick gray stripe through the middle, ending in an arrow on one end and three short "tentacles" on the other. On the front towards the wearer's left side is Squidforce's name in white Inkling text. In between the start and end of the gray stripe is a small, bright pink tag with Squidforce's name again in white.
The White Headband comes with Ink Recovery Up as a main ability. As a 1-star item, the White Headband has one additional slot for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the SquidForce brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Damage Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slot.

- 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 price of the White Headband (had it not been starting gear) would be 300.
- As of update 2.0, 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. The only way to restore their original abilities is by ordering from another player.
