Women with long hair, unite!!
It seems like it’s a struggle everyday in workouts, and I’m not talking about weight lifting or the extra mileage. I’m talking about my hair. I have long, thick, naturally curly hair, which can be a blessing and a curse, and but it’s been more of a curse lately.
I’m constantly having to re-do my ponytail, figure out how to wrap up my tresses so they don’t get caught up in my jump rope for double-unders, and taking off/putting back on my headband. It’s so frustrating!
I’ve tried the Goody StayPut Headbands:
And I’ve tried other sport headbands that are fabric with some rubbery glue on the inside. When M and I were in Cincinnati this week we were walking through a mall and I stopped inside Lululemon to check them out. (My first time!) While I couldn’t afford the $88 running crops or the $58 shorts that I’d love to own, I saw their selection of headbands and decided to give them a try. I purchased the Swiftly Headband in hopes that this would be the end-all to my issue.
I wore my Swiftly Headband to Man O’War CrossFit this morning for my workout and the darn thing wouldn’t stay put for my warm-up! Soo frustrating!
Update: I think I actually bought Lululemon’s Fly Away Tamer. I looked online and compared the headbands again, which bums me out more, since others have said to try that one.
So now I’m putting the call-out: What do you use to help tame your tresses for active workouts like CrossFit and running?
I’m at my wits’ end almost!
