I reached out to Nick Holslag, one of the partners at Halo Headband, who was super generous and sent me MULTIPLE options to test and review.
I was sent a Halo II Pullover, their best selling headband, in Aqua. I LOVE the color of it. Not only do I think it is super cute (a HUGE benefit in my book), but it also does exactly what it says it will (more on that later)!
|Oops, my visor seemed to block a bit of my hubby's face while we were waiting for the San Diego Holiday Half to start ;)|
Nick also included a couple of the Hairbands - a larger 1" version in white and a smaller 1/2" version in blue.

I am blessed to live in Southern California (don't worry, I paid my dues, living in the frozen tundra of Michigan for the first 21 years of my life and now paying a HIGH Sunshine Tax to stay here). This means two things: First, it is SUNNY... MOST OF THE YEAR. Second, it is WARM... MOST OF THE YEAR. These two facts mean that I need to find some way to keep the sun and sweat out of my eyes. Halo Headband products do just that!
I was a little hesitant at first, not sure if the "Sweat Block Seal" would actually work as it said it would - but it really did! I have gone on multiple runs wearing all of the different Halo Headband products and never once have I had to wipe the sweat from my face (and yes, this might be too much information, but here goes, I SWEAT LIKE A PIG, so anything to keep me from having to wipe my face multiple times during a run or race is AMAZING in my book).
PS Halo Headband is a local company, which I LOVE! (Being local - along with being an AWESOME product - is probably another reason why I see them at most of the Race Expos I attend ;) Not to mention, they deal with the same Sunny San Diego issues I do and needed to find a solution to the sun and sweat problem.)
All-in-all I give the Halo Headband products TWO THUMBS UP (and two happy, non-burning eyes)!
