SwirlyDo!

This past summer while my friend and I were browsing a drugstore she stopped at what looked like bracelets for kids. She picked them up saying how she needed to get some. I was confused but said "Cool, what are they, bracelets?" And she shockingly says "No! You don't know what these are?" When I shake my head no she tells me that they are for your hair. Of course, that shocked me but I still wasn't really interested but she continued on to tell me how they are really good for ponytails and they give you that nice poof/volume at the top of your ponytail because of the spiraliness (I guess you could say).

She also told me how they are more comfortable, doesn't give you headaches and doesn't create kinks in your hair after wearing them like a pony tail does. Suddenly I found myself interested. I decided to get one to try it out. The only problem was they were all colourful and I wanted something that would blend in with my hair. There were, however, black ones but they were tiny and I thought that would not do for my hair, I wouldn't even get it wrapped around. So, I went with the blue one and she got a darker blue one. I tried it out, and first time I still seemed to have a headache like I would with a regular hair tie but that was the only time. Maybe, I just wasn't feeling that well anyway.

I ended up using it constantly for my buns. It still does create a kink, like how could you expect it not to, though. But, I noticed the kink was no where near as bad as it would be with other hair ties. I ended up letting my sister borrowed it as well and she also liked it so I decided to go and buy her one. I ended up buying two more for myself, an orange one (which I still haven't used) and a little black one because I thought maybe I could use it for a half up-do or something. I guess I should have mentioned that these things are actually pretty stretchy. It turns out that the tiny black one was enough to hold up my ponytail and enough to wrap around and hold it in place. I was so happy with that. That's the reason I have never used the orange one I had bought, I didn't need to when the black one was perfect. I even wrap my buns up with that little one. It's so tiny, that I never thought would be possible but It's so awesome because now it blends better with my hair.
(Look at the height of that pony-tail!)

I literally have not used a hair tie since the first day I bought one of these last summer and I am still using this exact same "SwirlyDo". That's the great thing about them, they don't seem to break or wear down. Hair ties always seem to break from being too fragile, or not stretchy enough to even wrap around my hair, or just stretch themselves our of shape from my hair being too thick. Plus, I always seem to lose them. Seriously, you have no idea how much I've grown to love my "SwirlyDo"'s! :D I always find them easily, and when you wear them on your arm, it doesn't feel tight or uncomfortable, it just feels like you're wearing a bracelet which is pretty cool. So, yeah, I just wanted to express my absolute love for these things that I probably would have walked past without a glance if it weren't for my friend (so, thanks friend!) and I never would have known how in love with them I would be.

Have you guys ever heard of them, or tried them out? What do you guys think of them? Let me know. :)

  25. I'll have to check these out. Sucks they kink a little, but with my long hair I don't wash it daily so any styles "kink" things and it's a nightmare to keep from being sloppy etc. XO

  60. I started reading this post just like you on the day your friend introduced you to these swirlydos. I had no idea they were for your hair, I also have seen them used as keychain type things. I will be on the lookout, I mean, it's worth a shot after reading this. I may like them, too!

  65. I didn't hear of them prior to reading your post, but now I'm really interested in giving them a try. It is so great that they are good for our hair. Your hair is so beautiful btw! it looks very healthy.

    I've read somewhere that ponytails can cause headaches and I'm pretty sure it can be the case ...and if using these helps, why not give it a try.

  66. First, I'll say you have gorgeous hair. And no, I have neither heard of nor tried these hair ties before. But now that I've seen them in action on someone who has a lot of hair like me then I'm going to definitely be looking into them. Thanks for sharing.

    All the best
