At first glance, they look like a telephone cord or a coiled wrist keychain — so naturally, I expected that their unconventional plastic composition would make for an unpleasant hair-pulling experience. (If you’ve ever resorted to tying up your hair with a rubber band, you know exactly what I mean.) But to my surprise, they ended up feeling way less tight than a traditional hair tie, and way more secure than a scrunchie.
I found that they stay put perfectly through hours of wear — even on my extremely uncooperative silky strands — and don’t slip or slide in my sleep. Even more shocking, my hair has been looking flawless ever since I made the switch. It feels healthier, too, thanks to Invisibobble’s unique spiral shape that won’t dig into hair, which often causes thinning and damage.
Best of all: I always wake up with a dent-free ‘do that doesn’t require aggressive heat styling in the morning, so I can hit the snooze button just one more time.
