Sweaty Bands Review and a 5K Sunday

I hate it when my hair gets in my face when I’m working out. I’ve bought headbands before but they never stay on when I’m working out, so I end up taking them off about 2 minutes into the workout.

Enter Sweaty Bands.

They are girly. They are tough. They don’t slide off of my big head mid-workout. Mission accomplished.

Sweaty Bands sent me a couple of their headbands to try out and review.

I was very excited to see if they really did meet the claims they made and didn’t slip. They’re made with a felt backing to keep them from slipping.

And it does the trick! Not only that, but they’re really cute! I REALLY want this one, for example. A sparkly pink one. So me, right? SmileI know!

The first one I tried out playing a little one on one basketball with the hubby.

Kept the hair out of my face. With all of my moving about, I did reposition it once, but that’s totally acceptable to me based on how much I was moving around.

The second one, I tried out while running the 5k route in my town today. Here’s an example of what it looked like before the run:

And 3.1 miles later. I didn’t touch it once:

Totally kept the hair out of my face, making it MUCH more enjoyable.

Check out their store! They have so many styles and patterns to chose from! There are quite a few locations that sell the Sweaty Bands so you might be able to pick them up locally. Or order online.

During the run, I kept joking with hubby that I was going to lay down under a tree along the way and rest. lol. But I kept going!

I did, however, collapse under OUR tree when we were done!

  6. I love my sweaty bands. I have read a lot about them on the blogworld and invested in one last summer. Then I bought one at the Toronto Marathon Expo.
    They are great they don't slip off. Nothing fits on my head properly. I mean nothing. I have tried them all. And best part about them, they are fashionable!!
