Influenster Reviews: Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

I received a pack of these Goody Ouchless elastics from Influenster and I couldn't have been more excited. Every since Birchbox turned me on to Twistband, these type of hair ties have been my go-to for quick pony tails. I have really long hair (it's straight and of medium thickness) so I need something substantial to hold it up. These work perfectly and look cute as well.

Left from right: Sephora, Twistband, Goody

As you can see they all look pretty similar although the Sephora tie has been worn a few times, and the Twistband and Goody have only been worn once (on a pigtail and ponytail respectively.) The Sephora and Twistband are a little lighter and more elastic feeling, while the Goody is a little thicker. Twistbands cost $5 for a set of three which comes out to $1.66 per band, which is pretty steep considering these are just pieces of colored elastic tied in a know. Sephora bands are $8.50 for a pack of 8, which comes out to $1.06. And the Goody bands are $3.99 for a pack of 5, which comes out to $.80- the best value by far.

Now if only one of these companies would make a smaller, thinner ribbon elastic for kids hair! I'm sick of the tiny elastics I use on Reagan pulling out her hair!
