So. This is funny:
These keep popping up on facebook and Pinterest, and some of them are hilarious and totally relatable. This week, I relate to this. Laundry and parenting. Laundry and sewing too. Whew!
I'm really excited about today's Mama Loves!
My brief stint as a model left me with hair that was too short to pull back in a ponytail, which is less than ideal when I'm doing burpees at boot camp. Hair sticking to my sweaty face is so annoying!
To combat the "hair in the face" issue, I have a drawer in my bathroom filled with lots of different hairbands. I think I've tried most kinds on the market---some of them are so tight I feel like my brain might ooze out my ears. Others are designed with rubbery stuff on them that's supposed to catch (and yank) my hair to keep the band in place.
None of that really matters though. My hair is pretty strait, not a whole lot of texture going on.
So. Even the hair bands that say they don't slip. Guarantee they won't slip. Squeeze my head, yank my hair, so they won't slip.
All of those slipped out of my hair (!!!), unless, of course, I used barrettes to hold my hairband in. At 5:30 A.M. I just can't be bothered with remember to put on all that hardware---this mama just wants to get her workout in!
So, you can imagine my joy when my friend introduced me to Sweaty Bands.
Mamas, you need a Sweaty Band----or two or three or a dozen! I'll tell you why: they don't squash your head, or yank your hair----they're pretty stinkin' cute (I'll show you in just a second) and they absolutely, positively, I promise you: do.not.slip.
|See? Cute, right?!|
Obviously, they're not just for sweating.
They pretty-up a ponytail, or just pull your hair back while you're chasing after kiddos.
Check them out! I think you just might love them too!
Can't wait to see what you're loving!
