The way to go
I purchased these because my daughter has thick beautiful kinky coily hair. We tried other options (satin from Amazon) and the smell when they got wet was unbearable! These are pricier than the satin version but worth every penny. Strong enough to hold back mine and my daughters thick hair without ever becoming tangled or smelly! It also doesn’t hurt that they make the cutest t-shirt tie and look adorable in a high pony!
