I purchased the hair bands as I have been making face masks during the pandemic and needed bands to use for the ear attachments. These worked well. They also hold their shape when the masks are washed. Funny thing, I also tried to wear one to hold my hair in a ponytail and absolutely love them. I had always used the small, thin, usual elastic hair bands in the past but these are soooooo much better! They hold well and don't pull my hair out when I take them out of my hair!!!
At first, I wasn't sure about these bands. I used 2 at one time to give more strength as using just one seemed not quite effective. I was looking to replace some good bands & this one is not as strong or grippy. In the picture, the green one is a shot of these IKOCO bands. The blue one is the type I'm looking to find more of as the texture gives it grip. The black one is just a scrunchy for contrast/comparison. The IKOCO one is not a solid thick band but is fabric curled up. I wish that had been shown clearly on the description. They are just elasticized cotton.
These have a lot of stretch which made me think they may not hold well unless holding a lot of hair but I was wrong. If I'm ever in doubt, I put 2 together & work that way. I alternate so as not to wear/stretch them out. All in all, I'm glad I bought these as they are different from what I was looking for but am happy with them regardless.
I really needed hair ties and I lose them easily so I bought this because it came with a lot of ties. But I didnt realize the quantity was probably more because they are a horrible quality. They stretch soo easily that the grip around my hair gets very loose. Theyre going for the first 2 wears but then not even worth keeping.
These are the only kind of hair ties I buy for my kids they are GREAT for thick hair or thin. They stretch with ease for my older daughters super this hair and hold securely on my youngest daughters thin hair. I use them myself. They stay virtually all day. They don’t snag your hair. They never break. Definitely worth trying. I’m a lifelong buyer of these. You can buy in a multitude of colors and just plain black.
I haven't used these in my hair but use them for the ear pieces in mask making and for that, they are absolutely brilliant. They are super soft behind the ears and stretch well. So far they have washed well and even been through the tumble dryer with no problems. I have ordered several packets of these so far and recommended them to friends who have also been pleased with them.
Product is soft and stretchy as described. I just only received so I cannot yet comment on durability, I’m sure it would vary from person to person, if alternating the bands according to color or use one until it looses pliability. I personally alternate to match my attire.
