Question
Can you use these to work out?
I have a hard time finding elastics that keep my hair back- especially when I'm running on the treadmill....are these hair ties strong enough to do that?

Yes! I've worn the same hair elastic for a month. (is that gross?) I bought a package and the one I started with is still in perfect shape. Anyway, it holds my hair while running and overnight while I sleep.

I have never had an elastic hold my pony tail so tight, unless of course I use a rubber band, which I would never do. Initially, they seem a little hard to stretch, but you can wrap these things around your pony tail four or five times, making it so tight, you might have to loosen your hair for comfort. Removal is a breeze, as they virtually slide off the hair without snagging. Hope this helps.

You might have to double it up one more time, but they will hold. They do stretch over time so don't think that one will last you forever, but they do last a lot longer and hold much better than the cotton/fabric ones you buy at any ol' drugstore. Trust me, these are great elastics!

I have to say that these are pretty good about not denting your hair. Once you take the band out you have to finger comb and fluff the area where the tie was, but I straighten my hair and you cannot tell that I had it in a ponytail when the tie comes out.

These hair elastics have a great life span. In my experience, with regular use (once or twice daily), they break in about a year. You will begin to see it because they stretch out. But... they are much stronger than they look. They are a very sensible buy because you won't have to ever cut them out of your hair or have that awful hair pulling. And if you are gentle with them, they should last much longer! Hope this was helpfull!!!

They do not break! I bought a package a month ago and have used the SAME ONE practically every day. When I'm home I'm in a ponytail. I've used this SAME ONE for tiny braids and entire ponytails, so they've been stretched out a lot. I have 7 remaining in the package so I'm set for a long time!

I have never had one break on me and I used just one from the package for at least 3 months before taking a new one out because I misplaced the one I was using daily. I just repurchased this product in "brown" to help make it invisible against my hair color. So given how well these work and their durability, I have enough for at least a year or two.

They never seem to break at all - start out feeling really "tight" - eg, can only put around hair 2 times - and they stretch out as you use them (4 - 5 times around the pony tail) but I've yet to see one break! I tend to "lose" them to friends, and because I use the clear I can put them around my wrist and no one notices, but I also put around brush handles, etc... and tend to forget where I've put them - so keep buying more and more!

Yes. I have curly hair. My hair is relatively thick - some elastics break immediately because they can't handle all my hair. These are the only elastics I buy - they work, they are good quality, they hold a lot of hair and don't break easily.

Well ..these are a tight fit so I dont reccommend them for thick hair because they could put pressure on your hair or even the holder itself would break as you put it on. These are meant for fine to medium hair that isnt easily held by looser ponytail holders.

When I put a little braid in my hair the size of a pencil, the elastic does wrap around several times. These hair elastics are the normal circumference, but they're very thin. When I use them to hold my tiny braid it's not bulky at all. He should give them a try for only $3.50! :)

The Snag-Free Hair Elastics from Sephora are much smaller than the fiber covered hair elastics you buy at the drug store. My hair is average to thin in thickness and twice around works perfectly. Actually, my husband (when his hair was long) loved these because of the fact that they were smaller than the average hair elastic.

Most snag-free hair elastics that you'll find at the drugstore are different than these. The ones I've tried from Goody or other drugstore brand either pull and stretch so much, it's pointless to use them more than once. And they're not snag-free! The Sephora hair bands really do pull out of your hair easily and are just better quality than others out there.

i have had a few break recently but i think it was the way i was removing them from the card...so now instead of pulling them straight off i bend the card in the middle to reduce the tension on the band that may have been causing a weakness...sort of like a paper cut...in turn causing the band to break.
