Sweaty Bands Review and Giveaway ...

I'm not sure about you, but I have crazy hair. No matter what I try, I get flyaways and breakage and frizz. All of which needs to be tamed. And finally, I have found the product that keeps all of that craziness out of my face when I workout ... SWEATY BANDS! A few months ago, the lovely people at Sweaty Bands sent me a few headbands to test out. And after one run, I was hooked. These headbands, which come in a multitude of adorable patterns, do not slip. At all. They are comfortable. And cute. And basically the perfect hair accessory. Can you tell I love them?

Here's what Sweaty Bands has to say about their products:


"Sweaty Bands are made for women and girls who still want to look put together while they are dripping with sweat! They are the ultimate exercise and sport headband. The secret is the interior lining. It gently grips onto your hair and won't come off until you take it off. They soak up a ton of sweat and are washable. Sweaty Bands come in cool, funky colors and patterns that can be tossed in your gymbag without breaking because they are completely flexible and soft-sided. The styles are endless. They are like potato chips, you can't have just one."

I was sent both the thin (1") and the thick (1 1/2") versions to try. Here's how the thin version looks on me.

Both styles performed equally well. And I would highly recommend them. In fact, I have purchased several more Sweaty Bands, for both myself and as gifts. However, I will say that I prefer the thin versions as I feel that they sit better on my head, as the wider one tends to gap on the back edge. But to be honest, I don't think anyone notices the gap. Except me. I'm a little OCD like that.

In addition to sending me a few Sweaty Bands to test, I was also sent a two-pack (one thin and one thick) to giveaway to one of my readers.
