This was brought to you by AdvertiseWithBloggers.com and MaxFlowSports.com. I received a 4 pk of headbands from MaxFlowSports.com in order to facilitate my headband review and all opinions are 100% my own unless otherwise stated.
I exercise four times a week and hair in my face while doing push ups can be very irritating. I have to wear my hair back and keep it out of my face during my hour workout sessions. A pony tail and a quality headband will definitely do the trick. I have bought many headbands from local athletic stores, but none of them have gripped my head as well as the MaxFlowSports headbands. As soon as I took my first headband out of the package to try it on, you could tell a huge difference in the elasticity and fit compared to the other brand name headbands that I was currently wearing. I was very impressed with the MaxFlowSports headbands and even gave one to my personal trainer to test out. She works at the gym many hours a day teaching classes and holding personal training sessions, so I figured she’d be the best one to truly “test” out the MaxFlowSports headbands.
Check out the Cross Grip technology on the inside of these headbands. It TRULY makes a difference and provides for slip resistance. The “cross grip” that you see below are actually lines that you can feel that provide extra grip and make a HUGE difference in the elasticity of these headbands.
Keep in mind, in order for this to work the best, it needs to be placed towards the front of your head and not on top of your head behind your bang line as I am wearing it below.
This headband will stay in place on top of my head as you see in the pic until I do vigorous floor exercises, but when I wear it under my bangs and closer to the front of my head it stays in place throughout all exercise activities. I just prefer to wear it as seen above when I do standing exercises. My personal trainer, Ruth, said that her MaxSports headband stayed in place from 7 am until 7 pm while she worked at the gym with no issues. She has longer bangs than mine, so she wears her head bands as shown in the picture below. She said that some headbands will give her headaches when worn for long periods of time, but she hasn’t experienced any headaches with her MaxFlowSports headband. Being a mom of two football players, she said that these headbands would be great for kids who play football. Wearing football helmets for long periods of time in the Texas heat can cause acne on the forehead and wearing headbands to allow sun to hit the forehead will help dry out the acne in between football practices.
Here’s a great example from MaxFlowSports.com of how to wear the headbands in order to receive the best performance from them. See how they are wearing the headbands closer to the front of their heads. If you sweat a lot while exercising you will really like these headbands. I don’t know about you, but when I get finished with my hour walk or my hour BodyPump class, my hair is drenched with sweat. The sweat will run down my face and in my eyes and can be very irritating when you are holding weights and can’t reach up and wipe the swear off until break time. When I wear the headbands, it will also be full of sweat but they are machine washable in cold water, so no problem. They are 100% polyester, one size fits most and need to hang dry after being washed.
Does your hair get in your face when you exercise? Do you like to wear your hair out of your face on a regular basis? Do you sweat a lot? You don’t have to exercise to wear these, you can wear these on a daily basis to keep your hair back. Once I started wearing headbands, I found myself grabbing them throughout the week. They are easy to put on and keep your hair out of your face while adding to your outfit. They provide a different look besides wearing your hair down or in a pony tail. When is the last time you wore a headband?
