Whether your exercising, hiking, or doing anything that gets you sweaty and bounces your hair around, you know you need something to pull it back. This is something I have struggled with a lot. With long hair, I just want to pull it out of the way. Ambassador Helina tested BUFF’s DryFlx Headband. Read below to see what she thought.
So, if you’re like me you don’t care to have hair in your face when working out, on a hike, or even just cleaning the house. This is the exact reason why I was so excited to try out the BUFF DryFlx headband and BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer. I’ve been searching for years for a headband that can keep up with my lifestyle and actually stay on my head and not slip off. Therefore, as you can imagine I put this headband and BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer through the ringer. I took it on trail runs with me, on three 14’ers (hikes that summit mountains above 14,000 feet) and doing daily errands. Since I received both the headband and BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer I tried them both out, but for different activities I thought they could excel out. The head band was good at the simple daily tasks, but the BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer was wonderful for the highly active outdoor activities. First up, the headband. The cute smaller band was great for the daily errands, it wouldn’t slip off my head for the most part when just walking around.
However, the headband is not design for wearing sunglasses or earbuds. It went on a few trail runs and anytime I had my sunglasses on the headband would slip off during the beginning of each run. I also wouldn’t really recommend for windy or cold days. The material is a great summer, breathable material that dries quickly for the hot days.
Now for the BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer, I absolutely loved it, it might have pushed me to switch completely and forget about headbands and stick strictly to BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer. The BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer is obviously wider in which I’m positive is the reason why it stays on my head better, I think I have an odd shape head. However, that’s not the only reason why when I took the BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer up on the 14’ers adventure with me I was able to fold the material which was also acting as ear protection. The weather called for partly sunny, but the winds on the summits were too intense for my sensitive ears, I was so glad that I had the BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer.
Therefore, base of my personal experiences with the headband and the BUFF DryFlx neckwarmer I would recommend the buff, but not the headband. I love a product that can be used for multiple outings, where you can get the most out of it. Overall I love the material for warmer days outside. Plus they come in a variety of colors!
