I’ve had long, thick hair my entire life and don’t get very creative when pulling it back to workout or play sports.  It’s always in a ponytail.  Like most women, I’ve tried my share of headbands to keep the shorter hairs out of my face.  Most have either slipped out while running, given me a headache from being too tight, or have broken after a couple of uses.  My search for the ultimate workout headband ended after I tried Sweaty Bands.  I’ve worn them while running and while teaching group fitness classes, and they’ve never slipped out or given me a headache.

Not only are they great for working out, but you can use them for multiple uses.  I just returned from vacation, and I wore my Sweaty Bands all day while at the beach. I would run in one in the morning and put another one on while at the pool or beach.  They are great for keeping your hair back in breezy conditions at the beach and are easy to wash.  Sweaty Bands recommends you hand wash and let them drip dry.  I simply wash mine in a lingerie bag in the washing machine and then let them air dry.  They hold up great wash after wash after wash.  I also love women owned, mom owned businesses, and Sweaty Bands is just that.  Their owner, Donna, is a mother of 3 and group fitness instructor who started selling these headbands from her gym bag to help buy music and pay for continuing education.  You can read more about her story and the company’s growth here.

Sweaty Bands come in hundreds of designs and a few different widths, so they can really liven up your workout gear.  They cost $15 to $18 and you can buy them at the Sweaty Bands website or at stores in 49 states.
