Okay Ladies (Sorry men, this one might or might not be for you!), how many of you hate those wisps of hair that flop around or get in your face when your hair is in a ponytail? If you are like me, these are one of those “little things” that make working out even less fun!
I had recently gotten a haircut and seemed to have more of those wisps than I cared for. So, off to Wal-Mart I went to buy those huge rubber bands that go around your head. Those worked fine, until I continued to have to adjust it beneath my hair because it kept slipping. There must be something better!
While researching workout head bands on the Internet, I came across some people who use Sweaty Bands. I decided to try these out for myself. I wrote to the company and asked if they would supply me with a band to try and see how well they worked. They agreed and a few days later, I got the most wonderful present in the mail.
Not one sweaty band but TWO!!!
The Sweaty Band company sent me one medium size band to try and one large band. When I first pulled them out of the package I was super excited because they were so cute! I didn’t expect workout head bands to look so good! Here is the large one:
And here is the medium sized one:
Aren’t they adorable? Okay…so, now to put them to the real test…wear them while working out (and around the house, and when I don’t feel like washing my hair, and just whenever I want to look super cute!).
The result: These bands are amazing! They stay put the ENTIRE workout! No more adjusting your head band continuously throughout your hour run. The back of the band has a velvet material that keeps slippage to a minimum–or not at all! I find that once I put it in place on my head, that’s it! No more slippage! Love it!
Another benefit to these sweaty bands is they absorb tons of sweat. No more sweat dripping down into my eyes. No more constantly wiping my forehead with a towel or my shirt. These bands hold all of the sweat and keep it off your face and out of your eyes!
One concern I had was, how does, “One size fit all?” I used to laugh in the store when I would see something that said that. As a fat person with a big head, we certainly know one size DOES NOT fit ALL! With these bands, there is an elastic band that adjusts to the shape and size of your head. You could even share your head band with your child or teenager. It works great to fit ANY size head. Big or small!
The last thing I thought when I saw them was that I wasn’t going to like the large one. I thought it was going to be TOO large. However, after putting it on, I realized it was not too large at all. It actually worked great! Both the large and the medium size headband worked perfectly!
The only downfall to these bands is you have to hand wash them. For those of us that sweat A LOT, that is not very convenient. However, if you want them to last forever, they must be hand washed. I have found that I can just scrub it in the sink with mild soap and it rinses out great!
Now that you have read this, I know you are asking, “Where can I go buy one right now!?!” There are a few places you can find these awesome head bands.
- If you are local, you can pick them up at Big Peach Running Company. If you go that route, there will be a limited selection.
- You can go to their website and find a location close to you if you don’t have a Big Peach Running Company nearby.
- You can also order them online through their online store. This selection is endless!
Have you tried Sweaty Bands? If not, you really must try these! If you have “wisp” hair problems or you get sweat in your eyes, these are your solution! Check them out! You won’t be disappointed.
Although the Sweaty Bands company provided me with these headbands to review, the opinions expressed in this post are solely mine.
