I wear my hair up probably at least half the time, if not more. I also put it up when I go to bed at night. So “ponytail holders” as I call them are pretty essential for me and I want ones that don’t make me bald. Goody typically has pretty good products. I liked the look of these soft, stretchy ribbon elastics for on my wrist but I wasn’t sure about it in the hair. I usually prefer something a bit understated in my hair and the knotted design doesn’t help with that. Also, a bit of my hair did come out in the elastic even though they’re called “ouchless”. Overall, I think they work just as well as other hair elastics - so if you want a flashier updo or ponytail, they you’ll love these. Or if you end up wearing your hair elastics as bracelets more, then these are great, too. I love the colors they come in. I received a five pack complimentary through influester.
