Sing it, Active Bands. Active Bands was KIND enough to send me two headbands to try out and review. Let me tell you, it took me about an hour to decide which two bands I wanted to try because they were all so darn cute! I tried this black glitter band on one of my runs last week:
Gosh I look so serious in that picture...most likely I was just exhausted though, as I was still in my classroom, getting ready to go run on the way home. :) First, I have never had ANY headband that is as glamorous as this one, much less a running band! It is so pretty and sparkley, but most importantly it did not slide around ONE BIT on my head. AMAZING. The trick is that they have velvety material on the back of the ribbon band which really grips your hair. They are also nice and tight, but not at all uncomfortable. (No headaches with these babies!) I have tried my active bands on a few more runs with the same result, and I have to tell you that I have also been wearing these headbands when I'm not working out...I've even been wearing them to school!
When I'm feeling lazy and just want to put my hair up, putting on one of these cute headbands makes me feel like I actually tried to do something nice with my hair, even if it's still mostly wet! I've gotten compliments from friends and coworkers, and I'm happy to report that they hold my hair through a full day of school with no adjustments necessary. That's almost as impressive as them staying in place while running! Have I convinced you yet that you NEED an active band? Well, lucky for you Active Bands has generously let me host a giveaway to share these fabulous headbands with my wonderful readers!
