To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’m really happy I got these hair ties. I have kinky curly type 3c/4a hair and it’s very fine and coarse. I need to be extra careful with my hair accessories otherwise I risk hair breakage.
These are really soft and gentle and don’t damage my hair. They are a stretchy fabric similar to a pair of really thick tights. You can clean these pretty easily by washing them with some shampoo in the sink. This tightens them up if they get worn out and loose and eliminates odors that result from oils,sweat, and hair products.
20 come in a pack and there are four colors in the pack (black, brown, camel, and grey). I really appreciate these colors because they are better suited for adults who are no longer interested in wearing hot pink hair bands to work.
I have natural silver/gray hair down to my fingertips. I attended a Comicon yesterday and decided to get into the spirit of the day by wearing dog ears. I have not used an elastic on my hair for years because they were just too harsh. I tried these and not only did they hold my hair in HIGH dog ears all day, without them drooping at all, they were easy to get out when I got home. One side had four hairs when I removed them and one side had two hairs. That is the amount I would have shed anyway. There was no pulling or breaking when I took them out and even though I had wrapped them super tight they instantly sprang back into the original shape. Great product.
Never thought I would leave a review for ponytails but these are that great they warrant a review. Reminds me a lot of the Goodys ouch less yoga ones. Doesn’t crease & stays all day. I slept in one last night to test it out & it stayed in my hair all night.
These are the right diameter for thick hair but they are not the right material. These are as thin as sheer nylons and do absolutely nothing to hold thick hair. I looped it around 4 times and it was like a child's hairtie strength.
I love these so much I wish I could give 10 stars. My daughter has very thick curly hair and the average large elastic Goody or Scunci have a short life span in her hair. She can get two pulls thru with Goody but the third generally breaks the rubberband. This hair tie is more like a thick panty hose or tights material. I can’t imagine it breaking. It’s easy to twist and pull her hair thru several times and doesn’t leave a harsh ponytail line or breakage. My hair isn’t as thick as hers but I love them just as much. I was worried about ordering the right size. Large was just right. It fits comfortably around my wrist. Oh yeah, that’s the other thing, if you tend to wear one around your wrist these don’t cut the circulation off. I love the lighter brown colors too.
These hair bands are great for afro textured hair. As any black natural hairstyle wearing person getting a hair tie that doesn't snap immediately or stretch out from trying to contain the thick afro for full day is a challenge. Way back in the day used to cut up old pantyhoes to use as hair ties and these are basically the same but thicker. They do eventually stretch out like all hair ties, but are sturdy yet flexible enough to give a nice hold. These are a great size as well, many times you order online and get small ones which are useless if you have lots of hair your trying to control.
Loving these har ties. I have long thick hair that I wear in a bun atop my head for. Normally I use headbands, but they have rubber that pulls my hair or stretch out of shape. I break smaller hair ties frequently. So far these are great!!
