Hairagami Superbandz Hair Elastics Review

Is This the Solution to All Hair Elastic Issues?

I'm fully obsessed with these new Hairagami Superbandz ($6) hair elastics, and not just because they look like Gummi Savers. These little gems make throwing my hair up in a bun or ponytail incredibly easy, they have amazing hold regardless of hair thickness, they don't tear hair out at all, and I never have to wrap them. I just stretch them over my hair, and I'm done. To see how they actually look in your hair and find out what else you need to know, just keep reading.

Granted, six bucks isn't cheap for hair ties, but since I bought these at Claire's last week, they've been great. They're easier to find in my purse than a regular hair band, they pop right back to their original shape when I remove them, and they're even supposed to be infused with aloe to soften hair while you wear them (that last part I'm not so certain on the mechanics of, though). The only downside is that they're a little sticky, so they have a tendency to pick up bag lint and need to be washed off if they've been left out somewhere. I'm in love with these, so if you see them at Claire's I encourage you to give them a try.

This looks like it's adorable and works like magic, but today i was shopping and I bought this product. Me and my friend were testing it out, and while we were taking out the band our hair ripped out into a huge piece!

I do enjoy these :) I went into Claire's for fun and found only one pack of the hairagami super bandz, the star glow-in-the-dark ones. They were originally 6 dollars but were on sale for 3. I love the idea of these! I told my friends to guess what they were and they wouldn't have ever guessed they were hair elastics. They're really cool! I like the fact they're infused with conditioners, so they're good for your hair. They are just a tad difficult to get in thick hair like mine, and when I take it out there are just a few hairs around it, but no worries. These are cool and I'm happy with the purchase.

I bought some of these today, they're not bad. They're a pain to stretch over my hair, though. I'm not sure why I bought them, knowing that Claire's is not the place for me to buying hair accessories. I've got one in now, I redid it after a bunch of flyaways (that I normally have), and to get it off, I just rolled it over itself. I don't think that'd work too well for a bun.

Renee, the only colors I've seen so far are brights, unfortunately. FutureIn Fashion, The gummis can snag a little if you're working out or doing other activities that make your hair move around a lot. Shugsis, I'm really sorry they didn't work out for you. What happened with your niece?

I have tried these and they are such a pain to get out. They are sticky and pull on your hair. I will never use them again. I also tried them on my niece who's 3 years old and it was a nightmare. Definitely no better than regular ponytail holders. I wouldn't recommend for any hair type.

Does the rubber ever snag on hair? It seems like it would, especially if it's got a little stickiness to it.

Do they come in normal colors? I mean I love the bright colors sometimes but for things like work, I need black or brown

If you guys are interested, I just posted photos of the bands stretched way wide and also hanging on small pieces of hair if you want a better idea! Here you go:

Good questions, guys! These things stretch around my entire hand pretty easily, so I have no doubt they'd work for locs, Atiyah. And yup, I think they'd definitely work on really thick hair, reanerbean—they're supposed to stretch 750 percent, and I just managed to stretch one across the top of a veinte Starbucks coffee cup, if that helps give you a clear visual. The band totally went across. Unfortunately, the top then crinkled and then threw matcha latte all over my desk. But it's all in the name of science, so no big deal :) Evie, my hair is fine, and I just tried hanging one from a bunch of strands about the same circumference as a bobby pin. It's hanging in there now, and I've been intentionally shaking my head around to make sure it stays. So far, no budge!

I wonder if they'd work on really thin hair, like my daughter's (still has all her baby hair). Most bands are too slippy for her hair, or else they pull it out when I take the bands out. I might give these a try.

I'd like to know if they stretch enough for super thick hair. I'm guessing if the answer to Atiyah's question is yes, they would.

I wonder how this works for locs?
