I won a giveaway on Emilie’s site for my very own headband from Eazy-Bandz. However, when I tried to redeem my prize I encountered a little trouble with the code. So I contacted the company, found them to be VERY nice and accommodating, making sure that I got my prize as well as a couple more headbands to wear and review. Plus some codes for a GIVEAWAY!!
The headbands are very comfy, I have put them on and basically forgotten about them. They have not slid off ever, which is a problem that I always have with headbands. (I have lost sooooo many of those bands that are supposed to “stay put” during sports. They also don’t give me a headache from pressure behind the ears, which is an issue with bands that are horseshoe shaped.
These bands go all the way around the head, with a stretchy elastic on the underside to keep it tight. The inside of the decorative part is backed with a velvet that makes it so they don’t slip, but also doesn’t catch or pull the hair.
They come in multiple widths: thicker and thinner bands. I chose the zebra print thick band as my prize so I could wear it on the Napa to Sonoma course while coaching my team. It didn’t budge at all during the day.
They also come in multiple sizes, so you should measure your head to make sure you get a snug fit. I thought I could wear the adult sized one without problem, but when I tried on the tween size I found that actually fit a little snugger, making it so I didn’t even have to think about the band at all.
I have worn the headbands for travel, for hanging out on a race course, while riding a stationary bike and while doing yoga and pilates. It has been great in all of these situations. The only thing I haven’t had the chance to do is run in them (darn injuries!) but the way they’ve been so far, I don’t have any reason to think they will be a problem. They didn’t move at all when I was hanging upside down in yoga postures. I even tried headbanging in them, but had to stop because that hurts. (Seriously, how can someone do that at a concert for a long time? Ouch…)
