Here’s a little post about hair ties…yes, you read it correctly first time, hair ties!

I know this may seem rather superficial, and I am not for one minute saying I am the world’s authority on hair although oddly I get a lot of questions about hair – so much so that I am tempted to write a post about hair care soon. It may not surprise you I that I can be quite vociferous about this subject!

Anyway, back to hair ties/bobbles, whatever you want to call them. I like to think I am ahead of the curve sometimes (!) and I started using this, the Invisibobble (http://invisibobble.com) in the Autumn of 2013. I remember that Christmas going out with a girlfriend who noticed it and told me off for not telling her about it as she had seen them somewhere and didn’t know if they were any good.

I love them and have been hooked ever since my first purchase as my biggest annoyance with standard hair bobbles is that they leave a kink in your hair if you have them in for too long or too tightly. Enter the Invisibobble…

The idea is that they are a “traceless hair ring” which means that they will not leave a mark in your hair, and the designers say are more caring for the hair than elastic type hairbands, and apparently help to avoid headaches.

The trick to the Invisibobble’s tracelessness works because of its old fashioned telephone cord shape. When it is wrapped around the hair, it places uneven pressure around the ponytail which allows the hair to be held in place in a ponytail/bun without being too tight.

As you can see from the pic, they come in a variety of colours – but the traditional part of me only ever orders them in black. And I have to say that I remember my first few breaking after a few months, but my most recent Invisibobble has been going strong since Autumn 2014.

Anyway, I just thought I’d share this little product with you, in case you haven’t come across it. And similarly if you know about any new products and tips about things that work, I’d love it if you would share them with me.
