Few things can ruin your workout-high as fast as the feeling of sweat dripping down your face and into your eyes. If you’re a heavy sweater like me, you'll be amazed by how much your workout vibe can improve when you have the best sweat-absorbing headbands. But what exactly should you look for? While it may seem like a headband is a headband, there are actually a number of things you should consider when shopping around:
- Moisture management: If you want a headband that absorbs sweat, you need materials that are moisture-wicking. Look for fabrics that are lightweight, breathable, and extremely quick-drying.
- Comfort-fit: You won’t want to wear your new headband if it's sliding down your face all the time or squeezing your skull so tightly that it gives you a headache. Find a headband that's soft and comfortable with stretchy, flexible material.
- Style and color: If you don't like the way it looks, you’ll never wear it. Make sure that whatever you buy comes in colors and patterns you like with a design that fits your head and hairstyle.
The best fitness gear should allow you to have an effective, distraction-free workout, and headbands are no exception.
