The Green Girl's Bondi Band Giveaway

The Green Girl is a huge fan of Bondi Bands.

As I mentioned in my Yelp review, I had heard nothing but good things about Bondi Bands before I became a believer but I still didn't bother to give them a try because I thought $8 was too much to pay for a piece of fabric. I could not have been more wrong.

I'm one of those girls with 'slippery' hair. When I was young, my mum would always have to use those hair elastics with the giant plastic balls on the ends to tie up my hair and I could never wear those pretty barrettes like all the other girls because my hair was too thick and slippery.

I prefer to keep my hair short but I would hesitate cutting off too much because there would be no way to tie it back - every single headband I tried just slipped off my head. Now I can cut my hair without hesitation because I know my Bondi Band will keep all my hair out of my face - even the wisps.

I love wearing Bondi Bands under my running hat because it keeps me from ending up with 'hat head' and it also helps absorb sweat. You can see me wearing a black Bondi Band at the finish of the Rockin' The Coto Trail Half Marathon yesterday.


The Green Girl's Bondi Band Collection
The germaphobe in me also loves that I can throw my Bondi Bands in the washing machine and dryer and they are as good as new.

As much as I love my faithful Bondi Bands, you can imagine my excitement when Rebecca from Bondi Band offered three headbands for a Running Green Girl blog giveaway.

  1. OMG! I love Bondi Bands! I can't choose a design right now because I love too many of them, but I'd love any of their wicking ones to add to my collection. Maybe a bright yellow one or something that says running maniac :)

    I already follow them on facebook AND twitter!

  2. OMG. I've been wanting to cut my hair but haven't b/c I need to be able to do a pony tail. I lost my last hair band while running without even realizing it came off my head. The Crowns are awesome :) http://www.bondiband.com/product_info.php?cPath=25_30_70_73&products_id=1076 If anything, let me know when you make an order and I'll try it out :) Paola

  5. ooh! i want one in black! i never can keep bands on my head. i always thought i just had a weird-shaped head, but maybe it does have something to do with my hair being slippery. even the slim bands with the little grip rubber underneath come off my head (not the ponytail holders but the band things). now that i've cut my hair and have bangs, it'd be nice to use to keep them out of my eyes during a run. i'm always hesitant to buy these types of things, though, because i've blown so much money on bands that don't work.

  7. I can't choose just one, they're all so cute! But if I had to pick, I'd go with "Hopscotch Fun" because I could wear it with almost everything I own. :-)
