I have really, really thick hair. I can't tell you how many times I've gone into a salon and asked them to thin my hair, and they're all like, 'Oh honey, no one wants thinner hair!' And then the feel my hair and they're like, 'Ohhhhhhh.'
See, putting my hair up in a ponytail to go running requires at least three ponytail holders, and I'm still tightening it all throughout my run. A messy bun? Requires at least five.
The other day, on a whim I bought these:
I actually hadn't read about them or seen them anywhere prior to buying them, but they are made out of the same sort of material that jelly shoes are made out of. I loved my jellies as a kid, I love to buy them for Lizzy, and I was intrigued. So I bought them.
And they work. As I type this, I'm all sweaty from our Insanity workout this morning, and I have one hair tie in my hair. I didn't even TOUCH my hair the entire workout!!! Ah, bliss. It really is the little things, isn't it?! I seriously want to go buy like 25 packs, because you know they're going to discontinue them because I love them so much. The only downside is that they hurt a bit coming out of my hair, but so does trying to detangle a messy bun with five hairties, so that's nothing new for me.
PS- This is not a paid review by Scünci. They also did not supply the hairties for my review. In fact, I'm pretty sure that they have no idea that my little blog exists. I just bought something that I liked and thought I'd share it with y'all.
