Sweaty Bands Review & Giveaway

Headbands and I don't always get along. Why you ask? Well because I have a big head and headbands never seem to stay put. Its been a problem for what seems like forever. I always see women wearing these cute headbands and think "why can't that be me?" 
Thanks to Sweaty Bands it finally is me. Their tag line is "OMG...they don't slip!" And they weren't kidding. The ladies at Sweaty Bands sent me a headband to review and a headband for you (see below for giveaway). How cute is this headband? It's called Tribal Runway.
I spent a long time trying out this headband. I didn't want to wear it once or twice and then write up my review. So I've been wearing this Sweaty Band for over a month now. 

There's lots to love about Sweaty Bands. First it's their amazing designs and patterns. They have hundreds (if not thousands) of different colors, patterns, and print combinations. Check out some of these awesome designs..
They offer Sweaty Bands in two sizes (wide and thin). I prefer the wide band over the thin band. The elastic part of the headband is awesome because it stretches to help give the perfect fit. This made me happy because the headband really did fit. Awesome, right? Sweaty Bands have a nonslip velvet backing, which keeps the band in place. I never had to worry about the headband falling off. From short runs to long runs, it never moved. 

Another huge perk for me is that they are designed made in the USA. I love supporting the red, white, and blue. Don't you? 

I really enjoyed trying out Sweaty Bands. From workouts to long runs (and even trips to the grocery store), these headbands are a winner. Now it's your turn to try out Sweaty Bands for yourself. Up for grabs is a thin headband in criss cross (pink and yellow). Check it out:

  3. I was just having a conversation with a friend the other day talking about how so many headbands don't stay on for the full duration of a workout without adjustments. We even laughed about how there needs to be a guide for keeping headbands on. Would be great to try sweatybands and experience a headband that stays in place!

    1. I preferred the wider one over the thin as well. If you win, I'd be glad to ship you the wide one I'm wearing in the picture instead of thin. It's up to you. Good luck!

  10. I know you wrote that the headband doesn't move... it doesn't inch up in the back under your hair? That's what my other bands do... slowly but surely, it moves up the back of my head... What keeps this one from moving up if it doesn't? Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. The elastic band which is under the hair creates the perfect size for any head. I think that's what keeps it from moving up. I didn't have a problem at all with the headband moving up the back of my head, and I've had that problem before with other bands. Good luck!
