I have been using Goody's hair products and accessories for many years...too many to count!! I have very long hair and make a habit of donating to Locks of Love regularly. So my point is that I need to keep my hair in good condition while it grows. Living down in the south it can get extremely hot so I also need to keep my long hair off of my neck. I literally put my hair up in a pony tail or braid of some sort on a daily basis. These hairbands are great for everyday use. They keep my hair from breaking and frizzzing up. They come in a nice dark color that vanishes into my brown hair. They really make it easy to do all sorts of nifty hairdos!! They also stay put and do not slip out. The package comes with a tons in them too, so you never have to run out. I keep them in my car, office drawer, and in all of my purses do they are always handy!! All of the Goody hair products are nice, but these are a very good buy that does what you need it to do.
