My hair is always in a ponytail. I mean ALWAYS. I can't handle it when my hair is down as I have very thick, longish hair that has some major flyaways. So if it's down, I'm always tucking it behind my ear because if I don't I'll look like the wild woman from Borneo. Plus, I do not style my hair, not because I'm lazy, but because I'm impatient. I hate to be in front of a mirror with a blow dryer or flat iron and brush for longer than 4 minutes. Because of my impatience for hair styling, I have one quarter of a drawer filled with hair bands and ponytail holders and in every conceiveable color. Some with the metal clips, most not. Specifically Scuncis. They are the best I've ever found that will hold my hair in a ponytail without making it too tight. When my ponytail gets too tight, as it happens to many women, I get huge headaches. So I put my hair in ponytails, braids, loose buns, etc, so that I don't get any headaches. I love these hair bands because they keep my hair in a ponytail all day and all night long. I've been known to have my hair in a ponytail from the minute I get out of a shower in the morning to the next day when I take a shower again. My only fault with these is that because my hair is so thick, I overstretch them and they end up being being too outstretched and useless.
