Whether you run a mile, 26.2 of them, or somewhere in between, runs heavy . It challenges you physically and pulls you off emotionally. The last thing to worry about is your hair. So, if you find the magical unicorn of a headband that can not move, fight sweat, and still look good, you must pass the good word on to your followers.

Before you lacing control your sneakers and pull your ponytail for your next run on, check these proven favorites of six large headband brands.
If you're the most sweaty guy, showing off all your athletic wear, you'll love Sweaty Bands The unique, one-inch wide bands keep grueling runs and workouts healthy without budding. With satin on the outside and velvet on the inside, these ribbons also feel incredibly luxurious. This is a nice feeling when using port-a-potties and sweaty buckets. Do not let anyone tell you that someone says he is not sexy.
Plus, with hundreds of different imprints, you can find something for every race day outfit. I have worn these bands for several marathons, and I am pleased to report that this band has been uninterrupted for over four hours, which I need them for.

The brand name will be the name Be either a beacon or a branch, depending on your degree of love for everything that glitters (I'm on a solid 9/10 scale) the loving glitter scale). While most of their headbands are sparkling, they also feature many dull headbands both in solid and in print such as I <3 NY.
One of the most important features of these headbands is their longevity. You use a single piece of rubber band so you make it less stretchy after a few abrasions. The best part? This headband is so comfortable that you can definitely forget it on a stretch of 26.2 miles.

Whether you love or hate your pony (there is no spacer, Amirite?), You know how easy-care they are. How can a part of your hair behave so differently than the rest? Although we do not have all the answers to your hair ailments, we can recommend you a headband.
The fat Lululemon Fringe Fighter is the answer to pushing back the pony – and is also awesome for all with lots of hair. The mottled material does not appear when you have soaked it, and its thinner back strap keeps it in place.

If you're looking for something even lighter, Bondi's Band Lycra Headbands are where it is. The fabric feels like a swimsuit, so you know it will dry out floating (sorry.) In addition, you can hide with the thick bands of three or four inches thick that you have not washed your locks since your last workout (just us ?) or even protect your cool ears from the wind when the temperature drops. These bands are super lightweight, so pack them for your next finish race or race.

If you're a braided junkie (hand raises), how about a braided headband? I'm not sure if that's because they remind me of those braided pot holders we made as kids or whatever, but I love these headbands from Under Armor. They are also super light and – this is important – leaves no filaments in the hair when depositing.

Do not let that fool you name – these headbands are anything but trash. These headbands are made of technical T-shirt material (the material that looks like cotton, but looks like the moisture-wicking material in racing T-shirts). They are soft on the head but hold as well as the strange waffle material. And not only do they have a huge number of prints to choose from but also the bands themselves come in different styles, including earmuffs for the colder runs.
