We obviously deal with plenty of hair around here, and as the girl’s hair is long and fairly thick, it also is harder to get a good ponytail these days. For the longest time I have taken a normal ponytail holder and wrapped it around as tight as I could and then used one our Goody elastics (shown in THIS video) and secured it with one of those as well. Adding that second rubberband along with the ponytail holder has helped for the most part to prevent “slippage” or a sagging ponytail. But not always. As Goose & Bee’s hair continues to get longer, their ponytails weren’t holding up to my combo of rubber bands.
I’m sure everyone is familiar with Scünci … but are you familiar with their “No-Slip Grip” line of hair accessories? They’ve got bobby pins, headbands, snap clips, claw clips – you name it – they’ve got it with their amazing no-slip grip technology!
I have fallen in love with their No-Slip Grip “The Evolution” rubber bands. They truly are the bomb! :) These solve our sagging ponytail problem, and they really do as they profess — they don’t come out until you take them out. We bought a black & white pack like the ones below. They also have regular ponytail holders that just have their no-slip grip stuff on the under side of them, but these ones, pictured below, are pure – no slip-grip! They are gel like & the coolest things ever!
- *Variety of colors
- *They don’t slip or fall out
- *Extremely strong
- *Did I mention they don’t fall out?!
- *They are great for all ages
- *The grip is sometimes “too good” & it’s hard to get the rubber band out
- *Goose has a hard time using them when she does her own hair because of the grip
- *They are harder to get out of wet hair & tend to pull hair more than a regular rubber band
They’ve also got sparkly ones for little girls too in pastels and other colors and sizes.
I know these have been on the market for a while, and we’ve had them for several months, but if you have issues with hair not staying, you really should buy some of these & give them a try. We LOVE them!! I think we paid about $3 for our pack of 14 rubber bands at Wal-Mart. You can buy them pretty much at any store, or online.
These are great for all ages – especially for older girls who are active in sports, dance, etc. You won’t have to worry about hair falling out mid-game or activity. They are fabulous!
Like I said in my “cons” section — the only issue we’ve had is that they grip so good we sometimes have a bit harder time taking them out. The girls got used to just being able to slide the other ponytail holders right out of their hair at the end of the day, and these we carefully unwind to prevent painful pulling of their hair!
