Hey fitness fanatics! I’m waaaaayyy too excited about this post today. It’s my first giveaway! And I’m giving away something that I totally fell in love with when I tried it. Sparkly Soul Headbands! If you’ve never heard of them, you should definitely head on over to their site to check them out. (And of course, continue reading so you can enter the giveaway and get some!)
Now, we can all relate to the fact that we NEVER want to be fiddling around with our hair while we workout. It’s annoying. It’s distracting. It’s rude! But Sparkly Soul has just the ticket:
“a non-slip….yes, REALLY non-slip patent pending design makes certain that your headbands stay in place – no matter how intense your sports or fitness activity.”
The company was created by a marathoner and triathlete for all the women who find their strength and soul while pushing themselves to their athletic limits. And those of you who may be concerned about breakage, Sparkly Soul guarantees these headbands will not break your hair off. That’s good news!
My first go-round in trying out these really cute headbands was when I went to take an intro class at the Monkey Bar Gym. And yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. We did all types of jungle gym, playground stuff all in the name of functional strength training. I wore my silver, smaller width headband for this venture. Pulled my hair back into a ponytail and popped that baby on:
During the intro class that day we did cartwheels, somersaults, backward rolls, skipping, push-ups, pull-ups, planks, bear crawls, squats and all kinds of other functional movements involving nothing but body weight. It was dope and I definitely pushed myself to the limit. My headband stayed intact and didn’t move an inch the entire time. Even during the front and backward rolls. Was it really non-slip? Yup!
And then the ultimate test… could it hold back the afro? If you know me, or have seen some of my TwitPics, you know I have HUGE hair (as you can see in the picture below). So I had to see whether or not Sparkly Soul headbands would stand the test of holding back my hair, staying put, and being stylish and cute. Well…
After I put it on, I ran around the house a little bit, twirled my head around and have my self a headache trying to get the thing to budge…it wouldn’t!
All in all, these headbands are everything! I love them! They do the job they’re supposed to and they’re cute! I picked the blue (in 5/8 of an inch) and silver (in 3/8 of an inch) colors, but they come in 10 other colors too.
And now, without further ado…
