Women (and men) have that bothersome thing called hair that gets in their face, gets dirty and can be an overall hassle. If my face wasn’t so ugly I would just shave my head. But, since I cannot do that, I spend my days with my locks in a pony tail or stuffed into a hat.
I was happy to agree to do a review for Active Headbands because they promised me the bands would not slip. Plus, the product is super cute. I have a fairly skinny head (must be all those head push ups I do), and I have a lot of trouble with bands staying in place when I work out. Hence, I never wear them. I selected two bands to try out, the black and white polka dot and the floral.
I am hoping the headband detracts from my pointy nose and wiry neck.
I pranced and jumped around the house in them trying to get them to slip, but they wouldn’t, so I decided to put one to the ultimate test and take it on a nice ten mile run.
I suspected that the band would do what all of my bands do and start to slide off my head about a mile into the run. Nope. This band stayed in place the entire run; I never had to mess with it. There is a small piece of elastic in the back that regulates the size of the headband and keeps it snug. I think they looks kind of sassy and chic, n’est-ce pas?
If you want to look like a real jock, you could wear them like a true headband (kind of like Ryan does on the No More Bacon blog).
There are so many fun prints and styles to choose from including glitter and animal prints. They range in price from $8.99 to $10.99.
