In which I recommend Sweaty Bands

I stumbled across an ad for Sweaty Bands on some weight-loss blog or another (I read too many to remember) and it piqued my interest.

I have a lot of hair and it's very voluminous, so when I sweat it's gross and gets in my face or takes on some life of its own like a white Afro. Not cool.

Sometimes I wear a do-rag to the gym, but that doesn't do much for the sweat, it's too thin. I've run wearing a wicking baseball hat, but the bill is pain indoors. I've tried regular headbands before, but they aren't made to trap sweat and I'd feel like a dork wearing an old-school sweatband.

So I was pretty interested in Sweaty Bands and ordered a pair (one thick, one thin) to try.

After several workouts, including Bootcamp (which I use as the sweaty high-water mark), I gotta say they are quite awesome.

They trap the sweat and don't move - at all. Pretty impressive. They're not too tight nor too lose, itchy or uncomfortable. And they are cute.

If you're plagued by sweaty hair-control issues like yours truly, check them out.

And since I'm, like, 12 years old, saying "Sweaty Bands" makes me think of this, every time.


  1. LMAO! When i saw the title, the sat. Nite live skit came right to mind. I'm 12 too.
    Ill have to check these out, because I'm stuck in the same situation. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I have one and it's awesome!! :) (And yes, the name makes me laugh too)

  3. Got two of them and already I can feel the difference from regular bands. Thanks, pal.
