So at first look, I must admit these did not catch my eye….but what changed? Here is a little back story. I am a natural brunette who has very light bleached blonde hair. It is very fragile and requires a lot of extra special care and attention to keep it looking healthy. Most days (if I am being honest) my hair is up in some sort of a messy bun, and like most girls, I would use the regular, circular hair ties (like these). While reading through various blogs and Instagram accounts that I follow, I came across a post about the damage that traditional hair ties can cause, and when I say damage, I mean breakage. The worst word to be spoken in front of any bleached blonde.
So I began to do a little research. I like to use Ulta as a starting point for research because they usually have tons of reviews for the items they carry. In my research I found that these strange looking hair ties were quite remarkable and were rated 4.5/5.0 (based on 106 reviews). Many people stated that they did not hurt their head like other types of hair ties, that they don’t pull or break the hair, that they do not leave an indent pattern on the hair when removed and the list goes on and on.
First and foremost I wanted something that could easily be camouflaged in my hair. Second, I needed a hair tie that was sturdy and would hold all day without the need to readjust from slipping. Based on the reviews I read, I thought I’d try them out.
So glad that I did! These are a great product and the story behind the company is rather cute as well. One most women can relate to.
While a price point of $7.95 for a quantity of 3 might seem a tad high; once you try these for yourself you will quickly realize that they are totally worth it. I’ve even thrown away all my old hair bands. The Invisibobble hair ties come in a variety of colors, but I love the clear version because it is easily concealed when I put my hair up.
In the weeks I have used them (and again, I wear my hair up most days), I have noticed less tangling, more comfort throughout the day, and on a huge positive note, my messy buns have never looked better…BONUS! 🙂
