Headbands that stay

I am currently on a search for a comfortable headband that stays put on my runs. I just want it to hold back those short wisps of hair that won't pull back into my ponytail. I have tried those Goody ones. Didn't work. I have moved onto the UnderArmour ones - they are ok, but when I am out for a long run (over 1 hour), if it gets too sweaty, it doesn't stay put.

I have heard about SweatyBands - any good? or any other recommendations??

Now that the weather is getting a bit warmer, I don't need to wear my running beanie so headbands are a must.

Thanks!

I second bondibands. They work great and help wick sweat away.

I personally didn't care for bondi bands. They always slip off my head. I've had very good luck with sweaty bands though!

I haven't tried Bondi Bands, but I do like SweatyBands. Lululemon also makes some that don't slip.

Glad to know I am not the only one with Bondi bands slipping. I like Sparkly Souls bands the best.

I also like sparkly souls the best. I have found every other brand slips. I think it is the combo of velvet and elastic all the way around. Plus they are super cute!

My faves are chica bands. They look similar to the sweaty bands but i can buy them at my local running store.

I wear a Bondiband and it holds pretty well for me and I usually can't keep anything on my head. I wear a real wide one and sometimes I secure it with bobby pins.

I have a Punkeelove headband that I love. It stays on better than my Sweatyband, and they had better patterns.

I like Sweaty Bands. They are pricey but they work...if you get on their email list they sometimes send out discount codes (20% off or free shipping, etc.), especially around holidays. I've also seen a small selection of them at my local D-I-C-K's Sporting Goods. I just realized I lost one of mine yesterday so I'm on the lookout for a discount email for St. Patrick's Day.

Don't you just love it when the board's filters try to do their job on a legitimate post? Lol!

Haha, actually I did that in the original post! I knew from prior experience it wouldn't go through...

Easiest headband

I used to use Bondi bands - but, my middle school niece told me to use athletic pre-wrap as a headband. You can buy the pre-wrap in a multitude of colors for 3.00 - 4.00 a roll at most sporting goods stores - tear off a strip (I usually fold mine in half lengthwise) and then tie it around your head as tight as you desire. Ran the Disney half, the Gasparilla 15K and 8K - and the pre-wrap headband never moved. Best part - at the end of the race...throw it in the trash. I have a pink roll and a black roll - and they have both lasted since August - and I use some almost every day.
