I have used Scunci since I have had hair long enough to put in a ponytail. As a sports player, these are absolutely necessary. My favorite part about them is that they have taken the metal parts off of the ties to reduce the tearing and ripping of hair. As someone whose hair is up most of the time, this reduces the damage that I've done to it. They also have these in natural hair colors, which is more age appropriate for those who are not children any longer! I can match the hair tie to the color of my hair and it can look almost as if I am not using anything to hold my hair in place. These ties also do not slide out of my hair like the thinner rubber bands sometimes do. They hold my hair tightly in place, even while doing physical activity, without being so tight that it gives me a headache. The ties are fairly low priced, and the pack of 18 is convenient, because they can be borrowed and not returned, or lost easily!
