That feeling when your hair gets in the way - no more!
I don’t necessarily like to work out. But I do it. The thing is I have to be comfortable and I don’t mind if I look good as well. I can be a bit particular about the shoes and clothes I wear not because I’m being high maintenance but because if I’m annoyed with how I feel in my gear, you can be sure I won’t last long working out.
My hair can be a particular pain in my backside. Yes, I know I could cut it. But that’s not going to happen any time soon. So that means keeping my hair seriously off my face. I’ve tried a zillion bands and clips and either they poke the heck out of me, look crazy, or get so hot and sweaty that I want to burn them in a fire.
So I was very excited to stumble upon Amy Crouse and her Bolder Bands. Crouse is a cross fitter and a runner and was experiencing the same frustration as I was when it came to keeping her hair tamed mid-workout. So, she invented the Bolder Band.
The bands are made from a spandex/lycra blend, which feels very much like bathing suit material. It’s crazy absorbent and super elasticky. They come in tons and tons of colors and patterns. I’m a big fan of the super plain black ones and the disco inspired gold lame for when I’m feeling cheeky. But my favorite part is that it can be worn folded really thin or opened completely and worn super wide. (Not a good look for me. But I know plenty of girls who can pull that off.)
They’re made in the US in Colorado and can be thrown in the washing machine and then air-dried.
I know looking hot isn’t the key to a good workout. But being comfortable is, for me any way. And if looking good can happen as well, then, hey, all the better. All I know is that these bands did the trick for me. They stayed up. My hair stayed back. And I was able to focus on working out instead of getting worked up about hair in my face, sweat in my eyes, and looking a mess.
