Bondi Band Review & Giveaway

Through my SweatPink ambassadorship I was given the chance to try out a Bondi Band headband. My long hair is a mess when I run so I always wear either a hat or a headband. I am also always looking for a good headband that won’t slip and keeps my hair out of my face and off of my neck.

When my Bondi Bands first arrived for testing I have to admit I was a little turned off by the silly sayings on them. Even though I always love motivational quotes these just didn’t do it for me. This had me already thinking I wasn’t going to like these headbands. It turns out they’re pretty great though.

I tested out my Bondi Band over the past week including a tough track workout and a 10-mile long run to see how it would hold up. It’s extremely light weight and feels like it’s barely there. The stretchy material made of a nylon, lycra and spandex blend fit perfectly on my head. The biggest plus – I did not have to adjust or fix the band even once during my workouts. It stayed perfectly in place and kept my crazy hair in place as well from start to finish!

It also didn’t feel too tight. In fact I barely noticed it was there even during my 90-minute long run, which was followed immediately by a 20-minute walk.

While I might not love the sayings, I am a believer in Bondi Bands, and saw on their site that they have plenty with different designs too. On top of that, they seem like a pretty cool company. Every year they donate 10 percent of their pretax profits to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

In addition to my complimentary band they have given me two more bands to give away to one of my readers!

For reference – the blue one I’m wearing is the same size as the larger one shown, but I wore it rolled up.

  1. Love to run (however admittedly I do not run often enough) and swim and bike. Worst thing about running is those hot, sweaty days where you just can’t manage to keep the hair that escapes from getting stuck to your face. Feels so gross! Would love to have a headband that stays on and that are light weight and I don’t notice while running!

    • Awesome! What kind of heated yoga? I really like some of the hot yoga I’ve tried out lately after initially being turned off from it by Bikram. I definitely need to do more of it though!
