Bondi Band Review and Giveaway

You all know I love a great workout headband. I have reviewed many different types on this blog, through my relationship with Fit Approach, I was able to review Bondi Bands. I have heard and seen Bondi Bands for a long time, especially in the runner world, but I haven’t had a chance to try them out until now.

First, let me tell you a bit about Bondi Bands! Bondi Bands are a stretchy yet form-fitting band that is composed of a blend of nylon, lycra, and spandex. These headbands are great for all hair types! They also donate 10% of pre-taxed earnings to a charity, in 2009 it was the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DCFI).

I was sent 2 headbands, one for me and one to giveaway, unfortunately due to a mixup, neither were my style. I was then sent two more headbands. So one lucky reader will win TWO headbands instead of one!

Flat Back Narrow Bondi BandThe first headband I tried was the Flat Back Narrow Band in Hot Pink, when I first put it on my hair was wet, and it stayed put. However as my hair dried the band started to slip backward.

This was a taken a little over an hour after the picture above. I wasn’t even working out, I was driving. I will note that when I had my hair down the band didn’t move at all. So I think this will be an around the house or yoga type of headband.

The other 3 headbands I received are the more traditional bands that you see from Bondi Bands. Hot Pink Have a Magical Run, Black The Journey is the Reward, and Aqua I Bust Mine so I can Kick Yours.

I really loved the black one, I wanted to try it out at my Poise class, but I woke up with a migraine and didn’t make it to class that morning. I did wear it around all day yesterday, which included visits to the playground, running around outside, and lots of doctors appointments, and it stayed on the whole time.

You can win the Have a Magical Run and I Bust Mine so I can Kick Yours bands, enter below.
