Headbands. Something so simple that many of us use all the time, but why is it that we spend so much money on the ones that don’t work?! I was reading this girl’s blog (btw, she just rocked a huge race post-injury–congrats!) and learned about BIC Bands. I’d seen other running headbands in the local running store, but I never really liked any of the styles and $20 or more for a headband seems crazy to me. So….I thought I’d give BIC Bands a try. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed!
I, for one, cannot stand having my hair in my face when I’m running. These bands do not move! I have already tried several other brands from the grocery store, and none of them cut it. I even lost one in my Pilates class one Saturday. How?!? I have no idea…. I looked everywhere for it after the class, but couldn’t find it. Oh well–guess it wasn’t really doing the job anyhow!
Even if you’re not a runner (or a pilatesizer), these headbands are great for every day use and are easily washable. I just throw mine in a delicates bag when I do my laundry each week and they’re as good as new!
So far, I have gotten these five and I use them all. Pssst…Click on the image if you want to head over to the site to grab one for yourself.
And for those who want to find a way to give to The One Fund for the Boston Marathon tragedy victims, grab one of these! Your entire purchase goes to this great cause. I wear my Boston Strong headband every Saturday on my long runs now. It’s a reminder to think about what’s important in your life and it’s just a cool headband!
So that’s my review on the best running (or not) headband. Do you have a favorite running headband or other gear you don’t leave home without when you go out for a run?
