NOTE: GIVEAWAY EXTENDED TO MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY THE 13TH!!
I have very nice hair. When it behaves.
However, when I am doing exercise of ANY SORT, it is out of freaking control. So when Rebecca over at Bondi Band offered one of her wicking (and WICKED) headbands to try out, I jumped on it.
Out of the pretty massive selection they have on that website, I chose a plain green headband. It’s my favorite colour and isn’t the colour of one of our home teams in our derby league. (impartiality is SUPER important when reffing, yes?)
First day I got it, I wore it underneath my derby helmet at an open skate. Now that thing is already pretty tight. My head is enormous, and apparently a 3xl helmet doesn’t fit. (No, I’m not kidding. Insert “giant melon” joke here.)
It not only fit under the helmet, it nicely sucked my copious amounts of perspiration (you’re welcome for that mental image) away from my face. I’m totally used to having to wear sweat wristbands on my forearms to wipe away sweat (not always helpful) and I didn’t have to use them this time.
Before I went on our run
So I took it out for a run with the baby.
I’m notorious for having to stop and remove the bandana I normally use about 9 times on our daily hikes.
So we went on a 2.2 mile hike/jog. It was sunny outside. I perspired more than normal, because I was wise and wore a sweatshirt that I (for some reason) did not remove when it got warm.
It didn’t move. I’m not even kidding….my hair usually causes things to slip off or slide out and it’s REALLY hard for me to
After the run. Please ignore my paleness and lack of makeup.
find a headband that fits because of my enormous noggin.
But I dig these bands. A lot.
So much so, that I bought 3 more. Two for me and one for my lovely friend Ketta (her derby name…she’s an anesthesiologist, so her name is Ketta Mean) who ran my 5k with me this past Saturday.
It rained so incredibly hard during our 5k that we were completely soaked to the bone.
Even our underpants.
Rain was running down the back of my shirt, trickling down my legs….but the Bondi Band was keeping the water from running down our faces.
Before we nearly drowned while running.
So we were very satisfied.
Plus, they have some pretty radtastic sayings…Ketta’s says “WILL SKATE FOR BEER” and mine says “SUCK IT UP CUPCAKE”.
So they run about $8 a piece, come in a lighter wicking lycra (for those of you who don’t sweat buckets like I do) and a heavy-duty fabric (which is what all of mine are.)
They also sell wicking hats and towels, but I personally can’t speak to those 🙂
So….because she’s so awesome, Rebecca is offering one of her rad headbands to one of you! Winner gets to pick whichever style, colour and saying he/she chooses!!
