Hair ties for every hair type
23 July 2018
How much do you enjoy retying your hair every hour because it’s come loose
(again)? Or worse, trying to figure out a painless removal method for
tight-gripping hairbands? Yeah, not fun, but that’s why different types of
hair ties exist! Here’s which one you need for your hair type.
Cotton hairbands that are stretchy and can be looped will work well for
braids. You can get away with the thicker cotton bands if your braids are
heavily textured or try the thinner ones for a more subtle look. For kids,
ribbons and bows with hairbands are a great way to get practical as well as
Natural hair has a lot of texture, which makes it great for tying up.
However, too much grip can cause breakage. The best items to use are
stretchy headbands, worn towards the centre instead of the ends, letting
you keep your hair well out of your face without causing breakage.
Your hair has more slip, so small, silk bands will hold your hair well
without causing breakage. If you need a stronger hold, scrunchies are a
slightly vintage but awesome way to get it, without those annoying bumps
and dents afterwards.
Non-grip hairbands with extra stretch are perfect for a curly updo. For
special nights out, you can lock in a gold hair cuff at the nape of your
neck for a low ponytail just oozing with drama and glamour.
Hair rings or hair hooks will provide the grip you need to tuck every
strand into place. They will also work with your weave and hairpiece. These
old-school “telephone cord” rings hold hair without causing tangling as
hair fits comfortably in the spiral grooves.
