Hair ties have evolved and gone from elastic bands to metal-fastened hair bands, and from metal-free to now GummiBands. Now, what is a Gummiband you ask? (Keep reading to find out how to enter the Gummiband giveaway!)
I have a lot of hair and for the longest time, I dreaded tying my hair up because I would always get that annoying mark from using a traditional hair elastic. I then started seeing a stretchy plastic hair loop holding hair buns and ponytails. My curiosity was definitely piqued and I needed to find out what these were and why so many people are using them. These hair loops are super stretchy plastic spiralled into a cord that holds your hair in place without causing damage or breakage. They are hypoallergenic and don’t absorb any liquids (water or sweat) so they don’t hold any bacteria.
Whether you’re running errands or going for a run, these babies will keep your hair pulled away from your face. Thick, thin, short or long hair, a Gummiband is your hair’s best friend. If you have thick hair like me or need a more secure hold, use two! They come in so many different pretty transparent and opaque colours. They can be reused year after year, and although they stretch out, simply using a hair dryer or putting them in a bowl of hot water will return them back to their original shape. GummiBands come with a one-year full replacement warranty in case yours are stubborn and don’t cooperate.
Head over to their website here to check out their selection of hair cords. A pack of 4 retails for $7.99, what a bargain! Don’t doubt these little guys, they’re might tough!
GummiBand is based in Vancouver and I’m so happy to partner with fellow Canadians in a giveaway!
