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.
My favorite hair ties were discontinued recently and after awesome fellow amazon customers helped answer my questions about these ones, I decided to try them. I have thick heavy long hair and I love to do hiit training, dance, running etc. My biggest concern is my hair staying put during my activities. See my before and after that these are pretty dreamy in the stay put department! They don’t stretch and wrap around my pony 4 times - not even a slight chance my hair will break them like many other hair ties in the past. These are the real deal!! Get em.
I was hesitant to buy these since i often bought hair ties for thick hair and they havent been useful at all but these man... I cant believe i can finally do a quick bun without a million big bobby pins!! It only took 3 hair ties for this - one for the pony tail and two for support around the twisted hair bun!! It doesnt feel like its going to fall The only bad thing is that they weren't able to hold a high ponytail for me but im so happy with the bun results!!!
These feel like they are made from a rough, cheap t-shirt material. While putting my hair up in one felt fine for about an hour, the hair tie basically immediately lost its shape and started falling off.
If you stretch these out for a few seconds, they stay stretched out 3x their original size. What is the point of a hair tie that can't revert back to its original size after THREE SECONDS of being stretched?? I have no idea how these have such high ratings. Maybe they were made of a different material in an earlier iteration.
I threw all of these out. Worth maybe $2 for the entire pack, for quality.
I was looking for something similar to the pony O, since I like really high perky pony tails. I saw this one and it seemed a fair price, I gave it a shot. When I put it on it was not as perky, but I gave it another twist and made it perkier. Overall I was satisfied.
I have been an extremely catalog then online shopper for many years and very experienced, and I'm one of those that appreciate customer/user reviews that prevented me from buying and being disappointed, returning or getting stuck with misleading items at the purpose of the seller, which is why I contribute reviews to warn those that may appreciate it.
Know that there are a lot of sellers like this one that enhances picture colors to make it look way better than they really are, and I don't mean a slight difference. What you're going to get is in that color range but the actual in-person colors are darker and duller. Trust me. I'm disappointed but took a pretty sure chance, but I needed these thicker bands for working out (at home) so I'm okay with them. I gave a bunch of them away to someone to tie up trash or whatever she wants to do with them. These bands are also not as thick at all as it is shown in the picture. It's pretty thin.
These are AMAZING! I have enough hair for 4 people and these hold up. I can wrap them around my ponytail at least 4 times when a regular hair and would be hard to do 2 times. They also keep my ponytail up high and perky. I will definitely be using these as long as they are made.
They arrived carefully packaged in a compressed bag, very impressive for a hair product and really they deserve the hype! they don’t give you that headache of having a high ponytail, comfortable so far and the colours are actually nicer in person. The price is probably on the higher end and maybe should be a couple of dollars less considering the simple finish, I’m also very skeptical of the cotton part of the description, the fabric doesn’t seem cotton at all (so I took one star out) but over all I’m happy with it.
I was really excited to try these out after reading the great reviews. But not sure what the hype was all about ? I found them to not be great in quality, and they are an odd size for my hair. I have quite thick hair but they still don’t work / are a little loose. They are comfortable yes in the fact that they don’t pull at your hair / get tangled because they are thick. - but they don’t make my pony tail sit up the way I thought it would.
