With two types of sweatbands, we often get asked about the difference between the Bamboo Terry-Lined Sweatband and the Bamboo Jersey-Lined Sweatband. Whichever you choose, it will stay put and be comfortable with no pressure points. And like with all our bands, they are perfect for every day as well.

This post will detail the differences between the two sweatbands, so you can choose which is right for your workouts.

Bamboo Terry-Lined Sweatband

The band that started it all is Ponya’s recently renamed Bamboo Terry-Lined Sweatband. Our first offering, it is still our most absorbent band, made to absorb and wick away sweat during the toughest and hottest workouts. The secret is the micro-terry loop lining. The tiny loops help wick and channel sweat away, keeping it out of your eyes so you can focus on your workout. While our Terry-Lined Sweatbands can be also worn for every day, they perform the best against sweat.

Ponya Tip: In the most humid weather, you still may want to bring an extra to change out mid long run because humidity gives little chance of evaporation.

Our newest sweatband is our Bamboo Jersey-Lined Sweatband. Wider than the Terry-Lined Sweatbands by one inch, they offer the most coverage. Although they don’t have the magic loops of the terry bands, the increased coverage helps draw sweat away and up. Also, the lack of nap in the smooth jersey lining helps reduce frizz, making it a perfect choice for curly girls. You can take it off, fluff, and go after your workout with no lines or dents. It’s also a great choice for shorter hair to keep it up and out of your way.

Ponya Tip: In cold weather, pull the Jersey-Lined Sweatband over the tips of your ears for a little extra warmth.
