I wanted to like these, I really did. But, unfortunately, they do not work for my hair. The Scunci No Slip Elastic Hair Bands have a rubber strip on the inside of the elastic. Once the hair elastic gets stretched out, this rubber non-slip strip cracks and looks unsightly. Also, it is impossible to wrap this hair elastic around a ponytail without the unsightly rubber strip showing, at least partially, on the outside. I have thick hair, so this elastic was too loose wrapped around my hair twice, but it would not fit around my ponytail three times. I would not purchase again.
