For a few months, I have noticed lots and lots of people talking about elastic hair ties that wouldn’t rip your hair. Given that my hair is so thick, curly, and crazy that I look like I put my finger in an electric socket, I was all ears.
Number one thick hair problem for me = breaking my elastic bands.
Number two thick hair problem = the dent elastic bands leave in my hair.
Any product that solves both of these problems = worth its wait in gold.
And gold it was – or should have been based on the price at Anthro. ($12 for a pack of 4!!!!), but I splurged and tried them and fell in love.
I considered giving up my coffee habit for a hairband habit, until I saw this tutorial on Julep and realized I could have both.
With enough elastic from Elastic House to make hair ties for the next year ($5.99 for 10 yards!), I got to work. Elastic House offered a huge variety of colors and had the fastest shipping that I have ever experienced.
I cut 9 inch segments of elastic, folded them in half, and tied a knot. Um, yep that’s it.
Aren’t they cute?!?!?
