Sweat bands? - Monday, September 03, 2012 4:16 PM
I just have to know: am I the only one who wears sweat bands anymore? No one's in my living room but me and my hubby, but should I be embarrassed to even admit to needing them?

I know sweating is healthy, but still...it isn't exactly cool (no pun intended).

I have worn a sweat band for years.  I use to get sweat in my eyes when I worked out and my eyes would literally swell shut.  I had to go to the eye doctor a couple times and he told me to start wearing a sweat band and I haven't had problems since. The sweat stings my eyes so badly and it really interferes with my workouts.

I have been wondering this for a while now.  I wanted to get one to wear while I'm running to keep the sweat from running down my face but I couldn't find one anywhere!  I went to Academy too and couldn't find them.  I was afraid to ask though lol.

One of my FB friends runs too and she posts pictures of herself after her marathons and she wears a bandana rolled up and tied around her forehead.  I don't even know where to buy one of those lol.  I live in cow country Missouri for Pete's sake.

LNW,  I just get a sweat band at any athletic store. You can get them at Target too.  I recently got a Nike one as the material is more sturdy and absorbant.

I wear sweat bands all the time, especially in summer when I sweat most profusely.  They help keep my hair out of my eyes as well as the sweat.  Fortunately, noone sees me.  I've had a half dozen bands for more than 20 years.  I forget where I got them, probably a store with fitness clothing and equipment.  They're stretch terry cloth, and I just toss them in the washing machine and dryer.  Newer fabrics are probably even better than terry cloth.

Incidentally, I just got a dehumidifier (I work out in my basement, which is damp at this time of year) despite online reviews suggesting that the technology is unreliable and the purchase might not be wise.  After only a couple of days, it has already made a big difference in the dryness of the air and amount that I sweat.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I bought a sweatyband. They come in lots of colors and prints which is why I think they are so popular. I just wanted a plain one but my friend told me she got one of these and they were great.

They are a lot lighter than the towel type ones but seem to work ok so far.

Oh, and I got it online.

I just use a rolled up bandana. I hate having sweat run down my face while I'm working out (it bothers me and is distracting as I am constantly trying to wipe it away with my hands); plus the bandana helps keep my hair out of my face (another annoyance while I'm working out). It's super easy to keep clean too as it's machine washable and dryable.

I've purchased mine from Walmart or the Dollar Store

I enjoy knitting as a hobby, and make sweatbands out of leftover cotton or wool yarn. An evening of TV is about all the time it takes.
