Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

I recently had the chance to test out one of Goody's latest products, the Ouchless Ribbon Elastics. As a lover of all things ponytail, I was excited to see if the product lived up to its claims.

The Deets:
"Goody’s NEW Ouchless Ribbon Elastics offer you a unique hair tie to personalize your ponytail. As beautiful as ribbons but soft and stretchy too, these hair ties are “knot” your average elastic. New Ribbon Elastics are both comfortable and fashionable, plus look great in your hair or on your wrist."

The Good:

 These elastics are extremely soft and comfortable on the hair. They don't snag or pull hair out as you are taking them off. Another plus is that they don't leave unsightly dents in your hair like other elastics. The range of colors is nice and the knot tie is a cute little addition to your regular ponytail. My daughter likes to wear them on her wrist, but I'm past the days of stacking elastics. The elastics are also very reasonably priced at around $3 or $4 for a pack of five. 

The Bad:

I really wanted to love this product, but I was disappointed in the fact that I was not able to wrap the elastic around my hair enough times to really get a secure hold. I have long, thick, heavy hair so a tight wrap is essential if the ponytail is hold all day. The elastics also stretch out fairly quickly with regular use.

The Conclusion:

I would only recommend these to those with thinner hair or those who like loose ponytails. I would also recommend them to younger girls who like the look of a cute ribbon on their wrist. I will continue to use the elastics that I have, but I don't see myself purchasing them in the future.

You can check out this product and others on Goody's website.
