I have really thick and long hair. It's impossible for regular hair ties to keep my hair up! I tried these on a whim, and they really work! It can be a little hard to take out, you have to be careful not to just try and pull it out. Otherwise, love the colors, and love the ties!
My hair eventually slides out of the clip when I'm just going through my normal day without any intense movements. It looks cute though in my hair and my hair does stay in place for a short time. Does not live up to its claim.
I love these! They don't move, at all! My pony tail stays put all day. I will say that if they break, which does happen occasionally, they hurt! But I have had them a while and they are probably just old.
I think it depends on your hair type mainly. I have very thick and big super curly and damaged hair and these are extremely painful!!!! But if you have ice smooth thin straight hair with minimal baby hairs then they might not be too much different than normal hair ties
