A cure for my misshapen head?

Today my friend, Kara, posted a review and giveaway for Bondi Bands! I've heard of these before, and am very interested in trying them out.

If you're like me, those regular headbands they sell in the store don't stay on your head. Why do they continue to sell these? I think I have one of every kind in my bathroom drawer, each one I wore for probably ten minutes and then cussed as it fell to the floor, and threw it in that drawer. They slip off the back of my head, no matter how I wear my hair or how far forward or backward I put them. They're crap.

Enter Bondi Bands. The claim:
"Bondi bands are a comfy, colorful and creative way to hold your hair back whether you're riding in a convertible, rushing out the door to get your kids, or getting some exercise. Bondi Bands are an easy fix for your hair. Check out our wicking fabric bands; they will absorb and evaporate buckets of sweat."
Did you read that? BUCKETS of sweat! I sweat buckets and then some. So they are telling me it will not only stay on my head, but sop up my disgustingness and possibly keep the stinging sweat out of my eyes? Umm..yes please!

So I, of course, entered the giveaway. And, if I don't win, I'm sure I'll end up buying one, given the great reviews. They make them in all colors, and also some with sayings on them. Some of my favorites:
I walk faster than you run

I get made fun of all the time because I walk fast. I also get annoyed if I'm walking down a sidewalk and someone in front of me slows me down. I've got places to be!

I run so I can EAT


I love this one. Since my running "career" is so sporadic, mine would say "I work out so I can eat". Same idea.

Super MOM!
I'm not a Mom, but if I were, I'd probably get this one. How cool! I think every mom deserves to feel Super.

I also found this kind of amusing: they sell pigtail hats. Genius! If I still had long hair, I'd totally rock it. I'm good at making a fool of myself. Why not do it in style :)


I also recently entered a giveaway for Sweaty Bands over at Megan's blog. I did not win (Kara did!), but I want to try these, too. They're a bit more expensive than the cheap drugstore ones, but seriously, I probably could have bought ten of them with the amount of money I've spent on the crappy ones! If they work, they're well worth it in my book.



  1. I hope you win!! If you don't, I can still give you a coupon code for Bondi band :)

  2. You totally deserve to win after your post about them!! Good luck :)

    And thanks for linking to my blog!
