Remember the blogger brunch I went to before the Nike Women’s Half Marathon? Well one of the sponsors was Bani Bands, a company that makes soft-grip adjustable headbands that promise not to slip, even while you workout!
I’ve never been a huge headband person. The plastic and metal ones start to hurt behind my ears after a while and the soft ones just never seem to stay on. I do, however, have a serious problem.
I get frizz crown.
If you have thick, curly hair like me, you know exactly what that is. For all of you straight-and-tame-haired gals, let me explain. Frizz crown is what happens when you’re sweaty, or it’s humid, or you hair just decides not to cooperate (which is pretty much every. single. day.). It’s when your hair frizzes up and you get a little halo around your head. Sounds angelic, but it’s not. Not at all. Point is, I figure headbands could help tame the frizz crown, especially while working out.
So when Bani Bands asked if I’d like to test out a few of their headbands, I figured, why not?!
I already had this one from the blogger brunch:
And then they let me choose a few more to try. I chose varying widths and styles to really see how they would work.
Cute, huh? So how did they work? Pretty, well!
I wore them each to different types of workouts. Here I am after a bike workout. Red face, lots of sweat, but the headband stayed on and tamed the frizz crown.
Post HIIT at Equinox (this class involved LOTS of jumping… and burpees… bleh):
Through all the running, jumping, and sweating, they never fell off. One did, however, fall off during yoga. I know. I can burpee it up and jump all over the place, but a little down dog and off it goes? Maybe it wasn’t tight enough. Or maybe inversions make the Bani Bands dizzy. Whatever the reason, I still give Bani Bands the seal of approval. When I really need to keep my hair out of my face and my frizz crowned tamed during a tough sweat sesh, Bani Bands have my back… er… hair.
