Handana recently sent me one of their sweatbands to try out. Normally, I do not like to run with anything on my hands, no rings, not even gloves in the winter. The idea behind the Handana sweatband intrigued me though because, well, I sweat. A lot. No, I mean I seriously sweat a lot when working out or running. Embarrassingly so. All of the women out there who have said things like, "Oh, I barely sweat." I secretly hate you... or at least want to shake off on you like a dog after my work out. Fortunately for you that is not very lady like and the thought grosses me out a little. (Yes, Danyelle, you are safe... for now...)
That's right, Danyelle is a non-sweater. So is my friend, Traci. I truly do love them both dearly as they are two of my best friends in the world but it is embarrassing to be the only one drenched in sweat after a run. To the point of having dried salt streaks on my face, eyes stinging from sweat that dripped into them, any mascara I had on now smeared all over my face. Not sexy.
So yeah, the Handana sweatband had it's work cut out for it with me. I wore it the first time for a very hot and humid 3 mile run. Temp was in the 80's and humidity was about 5000%. At first, I forgot I had it on. It's pretty comfy to wear. I was running and sweat was dripping and I actually used the back of my hand to wipe the sweat off my forehead, like I've done a million times, and then realized that I had on the Handana. Then I got all excited because it was actually working! The back of my hand alone doesn't usually work so well.
It was so nice to finally be able to effectively wipe away sweat during my run. It worked great for me! I think the design, which keeps my fingers free, is one of the reasons I'm so comfortable wearing it during my runs. Although I've only used it so far for running, I'm looking forward to using it for other workouts too. Normally, I'm the person at the gym carrying around a towel to wipe my forehead. I'm looking forward to using my Handana instead.
So far, I'm very pleased with the Handana sweatband! I am giving Handana a thumbs up. This product did everything that was promised. Definitely an accessory that I will use repeatedly!
