Of course when I saw these feature on BR it sparked my interest and I just had to go out and buy some. They cost $6.99 at farmers and come in a pack of 10. I got them in black which suits my hair perfectly.
They come in 2 different sizes but if I am honest it is hard to tell them apart. They come in a little resealable bag but I don't use it. I prefer to pop my hair ties in a container in my bathroom.
I have very long hair and have to tie it up for work everyday so hair ties are a must. I need my hair secure so I don't have to fuss with it during the day. These hair ties definately lived up to my expectations. They don't have a tonne of stretch at first but they do loosen up overtime. I manage to wrap them around twice in my hair and once in they do not budge until I take them out at night.
The silicon strip is a brilliant idea. They don't snag in my hair at all. I am in love with these hair ties! Definately give them a try if you wear hair ties regularly.
