Over the past year or so, I have become a regular headband wearer at the gym. There are very few brands and styles I can wear without having to adjust them constantly, so when Lindsay at BangBandsByLinny offered to let me try one of her headbands that “will not slip or budge during your workout” I was all over that!
Lindsay sells her headbands through her Etsy store. You can also check out her facebook page. She currently has 99 styles to choose from including a great selection of college teams. If you know me at all, you will not be surprised that I chose a University of Alabama Bang Band (roll tide!).
I will be honest…when my Bang Band arrived I was a tiny bit skeptical because I have not had success with wider headbands. They somehow stick up on the back of my head and slide off within about 10 seconds of starting a run. I usually wear thinner headbands with some sort of “gripper” on the inside. I put my Bang Band on and tried to jump around and wait for it to slide. It stayed put. I first tested it for an actual workout on a Monday, otherwise known at boot camp class as “crazy run day.” At the end of class I realized I hadn’t adjusted my Bang Band at all. Normally I have no less than 3-5 headband adjustments and that is with my headbands that I have carefully selected as the “good” ones! This band truly passed the “won’t slip or budge” test!
In corresponding with Lindsay about her Bang Bands, I had the opportunity to find out a little bit more about her. She is active duty in the Navy and has literally searched the world for a headband that would stay in place. When she couldn’t find any, she turned her passion for sewing and creating into developing one! She makes every band at her kitchen table and says every band “truly comes from the heart” when she ships it.
As a small business owner myself, I love to support other small businesses, particularly when those involved are passionate about what they do. Lindsay was quick to respond to all correspondance and shipped the band very quickly – especially considering it was custom made!
I did receive this headband free for review, but all opinions are my own. In fact, I just placed my own paid order to get some more Bang Bands!
