Are you one of those people who would love to wear an elastic band around your head to keep your hair back but it won’t stay in place no matter which brand you try? That’s me. I have bought countless elastic bands and every last one slipped off my head after exercising for only a few minutes.
I discovered a band that stays in place last weekend at the Flying Pirate Half Marathon, Sweaty Bands! These bands are amazing. The secret is the velvet on the back of the ribbon. The velvet sticks to your hair, holding the band in place.
I bought these three at the race expo:
Here I am before the race sporting my pirate Sweaty Band. No, that’s not a real tattoo!
Here I am in the finisher’s shoot. Notice that my Sweaty Band is still in place.
I’ve worn a Sweaty Band for every bit of exercise that I’ve done since I bought these three. It’s been a long time since I’ve found a product that I like this much.
My Sweaty Band stayed perfectly in place for my first USTA match.
Tonight I play singles at 8 pm. That’s a terrible time for a gal who rises at 5 am M-F and has to work. Plus, I’ll be out there sweating (or freezing) instead of being curled up on my sofa watching Glee. Oh well, I have a DVR now and can watch it later.
Try a Sweaty Band if you have the headband slipping off your head problem like I do!
