These are the best hair ties, mini hair ties, headbands, bracelets, and more! I can keep my long thick hair in a bun or high ponytail secure, in place all day without getting a headache, without being too tight and pulling hair, without breaking the hair tie (which I've done a million times, no hyperbole). My hair also doesn't get caught up in the hair ties and has caused minimal to no damage from what I can tell, I pay attention because I'm healthy hair obsessed. I had stopped using hair ties almost all together and use wooden hair sticks and metal hair fork to put my hair up, but had no real options as far as putting my hair in a ponytail, let alone it lasting all day and not causing me a major headache. I will be buying more of these in all the colors for all the girls and long hair people in my life. There are so many ways they can be used. They look good on your wrist, like a bracelet, something that matters to me. They also work well as a method for heatless hair straightening. I can't imagine buying any other hair tie from now on. They seem a bit pricey, but after using them for a bit... I'm ok with that, other hair ties would only last me two or three uses anyway and that adds up.
