Bondi Band Review and GIVEAWAY!

I have a lot of hair.  It's long.  And thick.  And frizzy.   And just plain out of control most of the time!!  When I run, it's the last thing I want to be worrying about.  Thankfully, ever since I discovered bondi band headbands, I don't have to worry!  I love these headbands.  They are soft, comfortable, and tame my unruly hair.  I have straight bangs and bondi bands have saved me from a mess sweaty hair sticking all over my forehead!  They are thick enough that I can put one on and have it hold my bangs back completely.  Amazing!  
Check out my headband!

The headbands are so comfortable.  I wear them for running, biking (love having it against my head where the helmet hits), yoga, you name it.  They are pretty wide, but can be folded to be whatever size you'd like.  Most of the time I push them back a little bit from my hairline, but on sweaty hot days I wear them right down on my forehead.  They are masters of sweat wicking!  They kept the sweat out of my face during my 85 degree, 90% humidity Disney half-marathon!
On cooler days, I pull the headbands down to cover my ears.  They're perfect when it's windy and chilly out, but not cold enough for a real ear warmer or hat.  My FAVORITE part about bondi bands, though, is the fun prints and sayings you can choose!  There are SO MANY awesome ones.  This is my newest bondi band, which I feel is appropriate for my return to running post-injury!
Have I convinced you yet?  
Here's the fun part--you could win this awesome bondi band!

    I usually wear a baseball cap, but my head gets hot!! I would MUCH rather try out a bondi band so the crown of my head can smile.

  10. I definitely need one of these headbands because with twins constantly yanking at my hair when I bend down to get them is a bit painful! One is also going to be walking (running) soon, so I'll need something to keep my hair out of my face!

    ps: thanks for hosting this giveaway

  23. My hair is ridiculous! It's crazy thick and curly, but I straighten it almost every day because it's easier to handle. When I work out, I pull my hair into a super tight pony and bobby pin it like crazy! This headband would likely work wonders for me :)

  24. There are so many color options, if I don't win, I'm definitely grabbing myself a couple! I am a huge fan of solid colors and LOVE the magenta, and the I run like a girl in either pink or white ink! They're so darn cute.
