It seems like everywhere I turn, sparkly no-slip headbands are the new fashion fun piece. I have seen brands like Sparkly Soul, but a new to me company popped up at the Arnold Sports Festival last weekend.
Sweaty Bands is a local company to me, and is based out of Cincinnati.
We’ve turned perspiration into a fashion sensation! Sweaty Bands are the ultimate sports and fitness headband, uniquely designed for women and girls who want to show their style, even when they sweat a while! Slip into one today and become a Sweaty Bands believer.
I talked to the women working the booth about the product, and they were kind enough to let me take one home and try it out. I was so excited, but the hard choice was trying to pick just one!
Choices were abundant, obviously! I wanted to go with the thick black sparkle headband, but they unfortunately had sold out, (obviously one of the most popular choices)! Instead, I decided to go with the skinny black sparkle headband.
The company has all sorts of options though:
Argyles (I love!!)
Houndstooth (Another Fav!)
So as you can see, there are all sorts of options. I consider myself a headband loving/wearing girl, so this product is right up my alley. I decided to take it out for a test run on Sunday for 4 miles.
We took off outside and let me tell you how the weather was: windy and cold (28ish degrees). I also wore an ear muff headband along with the Sweaty Band. The ear muff constantly kept sliding, which cause me to continuously push it back on top of my head. About 2 miles in, my Sweaty Band slid off the back. However, I wanted to give the headband a fair shot, so I ditched the ear muff and put just the Sweaty Band back on. The verdict?
It stayed on for the next 2 miles! I can’t wait to test it out again and see how it goes. The truth is that I have always had a hard time keeping my hair out of my eyes and my ponytail holder from sliding off, (I have really thick hair), so any kind of product that can help me love my hair while working out is a winner in my eyes. I will keep you all posted on how the other test runs go. I seriously want a couple of the thick headbands, because I think they would be perfect for everyday wear as well. I love headbands, but I hate the constant sliding and the headaches I can get from the thick ones. The worst are the ones that hold right on the soft bump behind my ear. There have been many times when I start to wear a headband, then about half way through the day I can’t take it anymore and I take it off. Sweaty Bands are super comfy, so cute, and I seriously don’t even know it’s on my head!
What are your favorite hair products for working out? Any suggestions for no-slip ponytails?
