Sweaty Bands Giveaway and Review


Good morning! The day is finally here! Yes I am talking about both my vacation and my first blog giveaway! I am super excited about this!

Sweaty Bands was kind enough to give me a sample pack to review for my blog. A sample pack includes one thick and one thin band. I already own a thin band, so i decided to keep the thick one so I could review both, and then giveaway the thin one.

I have been hearing about sweaty bands for quite some time, but had not yet made the leap to buy one. I usually just wear a hat, or attempt to clip my stray hairs back. But, those methods are not near as cute as sweaty bands!

I will admit when I first put it on it felt a little tight on my head. But, after awhile, I forgot it was there and it wasn’t a problem. I liked both thin and thick versions, but if I HAD to choose I would pick thin over thick.


The BEST thing about these little bands is that THEY STAY PUT! I have very thick hair and regular headbands pop out all the time, but not this one. The have this great velvet-like material on the underside so it stays in place. It didn’t move at all during a hot, humid, sweaty 8 mile run. Score!

Not to mention, they have TONS of designs, one to match every outfit. There are just pages and pages of cute bands you can buy, this is one of the things I love! I love being able to express myself when I run and these bands help to do the trick.


I have worn both bands multiple times now and do not see any change in the elasticity so i don’t think one day it’s just not going to hold my hair. I will definitely be buying more of these babies! The best part is, now you can have your own sweaty band to try out, for free! 

This is how my sample pack came in the mail:


Below you can see the difference in the thin and thick bands:


Below is the band that you can win!

    […] other news, Running With Sass is doing a Sweaty Bands Giveaway! I’ve never had any luck with headbands, they always slide […]

  35. 35

    Sweaty Bands are the BEST! I won a couple a few months ago and since then have been SOLD. (and purchased several more!)
    They really do hold my hair in place and they look super stylish – not like “fitness bands.”
    Love them. Whoever wins is a lucky girl – hope shes loves hers!
