Yes, and no.
Yes, it can be done, but I do not recommend since the hair tie will quickly stretch out and become difficult to re-use. I have thick, long hair at your similar length, and I always do a low pony tail in the summer. I have tried using these to pull my hair back (at a low pony tail), but they always stretch out and become ruined.
Currently, I pull back the top and sides and place one of these in the upper/back region if that makes sense. Then I take that section and add it to the remaining hair and form a low pony with a second one of these OR with a traditional pony tail holder. (I like a stronger hair tie/pony tail holder for the bottom portion (second section) which is a much larger, thicker section. I hoe this helps.

I have the same hair type as you from your description, and they'll hold together the end of a braid and look cute, too! However, as far pulling ALL of your hair back, like in a ponytail or wrapped around a bun, they tend to stretch and get loose and not keep your pony tail or bun together.

I have thick hair as well. These are not that stretchy so don't hold well. After a while they slide out.

My hair is the same! I have very big thick hair and I still love these. I would definitely recommend these.

These are quite small in size, they could support hair in a low ponytail/braids however i found they do stretch after considerable use (about a month of constant use at full stretch) if your looking for support i would go with the seamless ties :)

Yes! It works on all hair lengths and textures.
Yes it will hold thick hair very well. My god-child has medium length thick hair and it is the only thing that will last.
