I've been waiting to try these for awhile now, and never got around to it. They just look so much prettier than a regular hair tie. They are really silky, and slide right out of the hair when they need to be removed. No pulling, tugging, pieces of hair ripping out. They really mean ouchless! And they aren't glued together at the ends so they won't rip apart when stretched too much! I'll admit that happens entirely too much with my hair ties.
I got 5 in my package (standard packaging), and my three year old immediately ripped it open because she wanted the pink one! I couldn't wait for her to have hair so I could braid it and put it up and make it all pretty, but of course as soon as she grew hair (at age 2) she wanted nothing to do with "ponies, piggies" anything of the sort!! How frustrating.
But all it took was one pink ribbon elastic and all that changed. She's worn her hair up everyday since I got my Vox box!
However, they don't work as well in my hair. I have really really thick hair, and these will only go around my hair twice, three if I reaaaalllllllyyyyy pull at it. However they look much prettier around my wrist than a typical hair elastic
