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.
