Amazing product

I was hesitant about purchasing this. I’ve tried headbands as an accessory/beauty product before. But for some reason the way my head is built they would never stay put. So I’ve given up.However, I started doing insanity and sweat became a real issue. After short research I’ve stumbled upon these. With my previous headband as an accessories fiasco I doubted this would work. But the price was very reasonable so I decided to give it a shot. And how happy I am that I did!This headband is truly amazing. I now don’t even need to constantly have a towel next to me. It absorbs all the sweat! No more burning eyes! I use this during insanity workout, as well as 45 min spin, and 2-3 hour outside bike rides, and it works perfectly for every work out. It also fits great underneath my biking helmet. I now own 5 of these, in white, blue, and pink. Since I work out at least 5 times a week it’s perfect for me. I just throw them in a washer once a week.All in all this is an amazing product!

Keeps the sweat out of your eyes

I bought this for hiking and general outdoor activities (where I might be outside all day). I sweat horribly in any warm temperatures, and I hate the sweat poring into my eyes and burning them. I’ve tried bandannas, cut up nylon rags, lightweight microfiber towels, old cotton sweatbands, etc. None of them worked well, once they became saturated they became unusable to protect my eyes and face from dripping sweat.This really lived up to all the hype and advertisements it boasted, and blew everything else out of the water. There’s a thin strip of rubber that goes across the front portion of this that blocks dripping sweat from your forehead and hair and redirects it to the sides of your face away from your eyes/nose/mouth. For the first time in my life I did a hike this summer and did not have to worry about constantly wiping my head, ringing out anything, and dealing with excess sweat in my eyes. Also to note: excess face sweat has made it impossible for me to wear glasses during heavy excising – however this makes it possible to once again wear them comfortably.This is truly an amazing product, I use now whenever I do anything (yard work, chopping wood, jogging, etc). The fabric itself does become saturated with sweat but it doesn’t so much that it drips down afterwards, I believe the combination of the wicking fabric and the rubber strip to redirect it, makes it usable for a good 8+hr activity without issue.

The BEST Sweatband

This is the best sweatband i’ve found so far! The sweat channel works well, and does a good job of pushing the sweat away from my glasses towards the sides of my face. I sweat like an absolute pig while mountain biking, so it comes in handy not having to clean my glasses every mile. The Halo II holds plenty of sweat, as can be proven if you wring it out here and there when you stop. It seems high quality and has held up well through its first 20 uses.The Halo II is stretch like a standard headband instead of the original that uses a bandana style tie in the back. I prefer the stretch because it fits better under my helmet. At first I was skeptical and thought it might be tight and itchy but it isn’t. It actually conforms and I forget its there as soon as it absorbs the slightest bit of moisture. I got white so it would blend in with my helmet, but the white is kind of vivid at first. Of course it was dirty looking after the first use and dull like I expected. If you care about looks you might want to get a dark color.Now on to the only reason it didn’t get the perfect 5/5 stars. When you look down while wearing the band, the sweat will pour down onto whatever you are looking at. For example, you look straight down at your map while wearing it soaked with sweat.. and you can kiss that non-waterproof map goodbye. I stopped to adjust my caliper here and there only to get irritated with the sweat pouring down onto my caliper while I tweaked it. Simple solution, whenever you stop to look at a map or something.. wring it out quick and put it back on. Also keep in mind that you don’t want to wring it out while wearing gloves… i’ve unfortunately been there..

I’m a believer now!! 🙂

I had heard many things over the years about Dr. Bronner’s soaps on different blogs and such but was always a litle hesitant to try it because I have sensitive skin and it doesn’t always respond well to new products. Also, I always thought that the only shampoo that would work well was an expensive salon brand. I couldn’t argue with all the 5-star reviews so I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try and I’m so glad that I did! I use it as a face wash, body wash and a shampoo and my skin and hair has never looked better! I dilute it 2:1 in an old Dial foaming soap pump and it is amazing. So much lather and the almond smell is great. I feel squeaky clean but it rinses well with no residue and my skin has been super soft. I barely have to even use lotion after although there is no greasiness. Also my hair is kind of wavy but more on the frizzy side between curly and straight and before it would never look good unless I blew it dry and straightened it. Now after using this, I can actually let my hair air dry and it looks great! I heard some people used different rinses and special conditioners but I just use my regular conditioner and its fine. My hair is shiny and has a ton of volume. I love this stuff!! Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised. I just ordered a gallon of both the almond and peppermint. Haven’t used it for cleaning the house yet but I can only imagine that it will be just as great. Amazing product 🙂

Great soap

I love this soap it works great whether your using it in the shower or cleaning with it. The almond is the best smelling in my opinion. The peppermint one works great on killing ants too.

love this stuff, bodywash, handwash, cleaning…

I like having a lot of this on hand, pour it in a refillable pump container and it foams up nicely with a poof as body wash. Use it in a refillable suds pump for handwash (ratio abou 1:5)…cleaning and as a backup for washing dishes….nice smell

Overpriced and doesn’t work

I have to say that I am not a fan of this item. The first day I got it, I needed to water the flowers in my yard. It was around dusk so I would need to spray for misquitos. I thought I would try this insect shield out instead. I pushed it around my neck, like a necklace and began to water. Within about 5 minutes, I had a misquito bite on my shoulder. Fail. Orignally I had purchased this to pull up over my nose and mouth for motorcycle riding. I think it will still work for that. But way overpriced and the inscent repellent doesn’t work at all.

Outdoor problems solved

I like it more than I thought possible. The fabric is like a soft, thin pima cotton tee shirt. Plus it is very cool against my skin, like instant shade. And no scratchy seams or threads or tags. I got the Buff UV Bug Slinger version and it fits me, a small female, and it fits my husband with a giant head (hat size 7 5/8) too. And it looks really good! Everyone wants to steal it! Forget about Columbia, Coolibar or an off-brand— buy a Buff, seriously. It looks so much cooler anyway.I love the beach, the forest, the water, boats, horses, trails, campfires… but I sweat like crazy, get sun rash, have asthma, am a mosquito magnet. I have tried many things including cotton bandanas, scarves, terry bands, hoodies, hats, lots of sunscreen, deet, worthless herbal bug repellants and "wicking" performance fabrics that don’t breathe and smear your sweat, dirt, sunscreen and deet around. Those have made me gross and miserable. It’s soft, and light and can cover your entire head and neck. I can tell you- nothing else does this in cold and heat. It keeps me ears and nose warm on the cliffs in the morning and blocks the sun from my forehead and scalp midday while absorbing sweat. Pull it up and over to block the blood suckers at dusk or walking through trees. It really shines when used as a face mask for dirt, cold air and smoke because it filters but is very soft and stays put really well.I was worried about the unfinished seams looking sloppy but it looks like a nifty bandana that stays on well. It’s not shiny and has good stretch without stretching out. The print looks so good in person. I watched the video on their website and tried every configuration. I could wear this in public and not feel weird. I will get a Buff headband too (a short version), because this full Buff is a little too much fabric to easily wear as women’s headband. And I’m hoping for tee shirts soon.

Good Looking, Comfortable, Versatile

These headbands are exactly as advertised. It’s a thin, t-shirt type material that’s sewn together to make a headband. I have a regular size head and these fit very comfortably. What I love about these headbands is they are 4 inches wide. This gives you a lot of options for how you want to wear it. I double it up so it’s only two inches wide and wear it as a decorative headband in my hair on the way to work out then when I’m working out I wear it spread out so that it’s completely covering my forehead and goes a little up into my hair. I sweat A LOT so I like to have my entire forehead covered for full sweat absorption. This headband gets the job done. You can also wear it doubled over on your wrist as a wristband.

Too tight

Thought the price was right for a 5-pack, but sometimes you just need to spend a little more. These are way too tight, but still somehow managed to not stay in place, I suppose due to the fabric. Can’t recommend.

Functional, not terribly fashionable

I bought these several weeks ago, and I use them almost every day in the gym. They haven’t come unstitched or stretched out. They’re absorbent enough to keep sweat from dripping anywhere. I don’t have to wipe my face every 2 minutes while doing cardio, and I no longer have a problem with my earbuds falling out because they’re sweat-soaked, so that’s a godsend. They aren’t particularly great looking, but I don’t know who would be expecting fashion miracles from the picture shown. It’s a simple wide black (well, at least the set I ordered) headband. They do the job and I will probably buy another set soon.
