CyndiBands Elastic Hair Ties {Review & Giveaway}

CyndiBands logo
Although I won't deny that I love the "girly" aspect of having two girls, there are downsides that inevitably come with it.

Frilly, fancy clothes are fun to dress them up in... but that means trying to keep up with leggings and tights for under the dresses and skirts in cold weather, as well as hoping sequins and glitter don't come off in every load of laundry.

And while I like having the ability to cut and style their hair in a variety of different ways... I don't really enjoy their whining while I brush it, the scrambling to find a hair band in the morning or the way that they nearly cry when I take the aforementioned hair band out at the end of the day and it pulls out their hair right along with it.

Fortunately, life for all of us has been a little easier since we were introduced to the colorful, convenient, fashionable CyndiBands.

CyndiBands hair ties

The elastic hair ties that don't damage your hair and come in a variety of colors, patterns and designs, CyndiBands work to hold hair in place throughout the day while also looking great as a bracelet. The result is that this trendy accessory is just right no matter if you're a mom heading to the gym, a daughter going to school or just a fashionista on-the-go!

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I had no doubt that CyndiBands would make a great, creative gift for my daughters and I. And, with the arrival of the Conversation Heart Gift Set and a Valentine Six Pack, we were ready to celebrate the holiday in style!

CyndiBands review

I can't remember the last time that I looked at hair ties and thought that they were adorable... but that was definitely my reaction to these CyndiBands! Can you get much cuter for Valentine's Day?

The reds, pinks and silver options in the Love 6-pack are not only a perfect gift for February 14th, but they will easily be worn throughout the rest of the year as well.

Valentine's Day hair ties

At the same time, the six Conversation Hearts are such a unique way to surprise six friends with a sweet note and a practical hair band.

Valentine's Day hair ties

With such fun colors and no-fray ends on each of these CyndiBands, it wasn't a surprise that my girls and I have been reaching for them daily since their arrival. They stay securely in my hair no matter what I do, don't leave a dent or crease if I remove them (as well as not yanking out my hair), and they double as a comfortable bracelet!

Valentine's Day hair ties

As well as the fashionable reasons for wearing our CyndiBands around on our wrists, it has really come in handy more than once when we've realized that we needed a way to keep hair out of the way (e.g. when we were out to eat and Little Sister B's hair was falling into her food) and voilĂ ! CyndiBands to the rescue (a.k.a. around each of Big Sister E's wrists)!

elastic hair bands

Made in the USA and available in just about every color, pattern and style that you could think of, CyndiBands retail around $5-$6 for a set of three, $10-$12 for a set of six and anywhere from $18-$30 for gift cubes of 10 and mega sets of 19.

Much more information about these great hair ties (and their equally awesome headbands!) can be found by visiting CyndiBands.com and connecting with this innovative company on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon see just why we're so excited about these stretchy, colorful bands around here, because...

One lucky person will win a Cotton Candy 6-pack and a Gift Cube 10-pack assortment of CyndiBands (total ARV $28)!

THese would be wonderful to have at my house when my granddaughters come over they are always needing something to pull back their hair and I love to have some of these instead of the elastic ones that we have here.

bsyb said...

My girl is always stealing my hair ties. She loves these because they don't pull or snarl in her hair. I like them cause they don't leave a bump in my hair later when I take it down.

Cassandra Eastman said...

I'd love them for myself, and my daughter once her hair gets a little longer! They'd be a great valentine gift for my mom and sister too, I love the color selection!

Andrea Caruso said...

SexyBrat said...

These are super cute. My daughter would love them.

Sunnymay said...

As a nurse and when exercising, I swoop up my long hair into a ponytail or wear it half up and half down, so these bands would come in handy to keep the hairs out of my face.

Teresa said...

My daughter wears her hair up every single day, and so do I. Would love to have these at my house!!

Angel said...

I would love to have these for myself and my daughter. They are just too darn cute i know we'd both enjoy them.

Jessica Whitehouse said...

My daughter is trying to grow her hair long again. it's almost long enough now to start putting up in a pony-tail.

wildcat32 said...

I would like to have these because my daughters are always pulling their hair back in ponytails.

Nancy Staves said...

I really like the colors, and they are gentle on your hair! Growing my hair out, and it's at that "in between" stage. Could definitely use and share these awesome bands!

Mirm said...

Perfect for my daughter - we are always looking for some new looks,

Elizabeth said...

I'm in a hairband rut. I used to use lots of fun colors, but then I bought a big pack of black hair ties and I've been using them exclusively. I do lots of braids and ponytails, so these would be lots of fun!

PAIGE said...

These would be great for my daughter who wears a pony tail every day and doesn't like the breakage and pull.

skipthelaundry said...

These would be great for my daughter who usually starts out wearing her hair down but always ends up putting it up through the day. She could wear as bracelet and have one when she needs it.

Leslie Rigsby said...

Melissa said...

I would love to win these since it seems like I am always losing them and can't find one when I need it.

Tara said...

I usually wear a ponytail around the house and it would be fun to have some hair bands with color instead of the boring regular ones I normally use.

Stephanie said...

I would love to win these for my house because as a nursing student I have to wear my hair in a ponytail for clinicals and I'm always looking for neat types of hair ties :)
nurse_mommy(at)live(dot)com

Jessica said...

I would love to have these for both me and my girls. Sometimes doing their hair in intricate ways can be difficult because after getting the bands out seems to tear out more hair than what was styled. These sound like a great alternative. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

Nikki Strong said...

I have two daughters. We would all use the CyndiBands. They have naturally curly hair, so I don't think the bands would be as harsh on their hair as the regular elastic ponytail holders.

bkittie said...

This would make a fun gift for my sister's granddaughter!
(Diane L.)

mistieblog said...

i would love to have these hair ties they look so unique!! I have long hair and so does my daughter and 2 of my friends. If they dont pull your hair out when removing them that would be great Id have to give some to my friends to convince them!

My friend's daughters have long beautiful hair and they love colorful hair ties.

SolDucky said...

My daughters hate having their hair pulled with plastic ties, so this looks like it would really help that!

I would like to win these for my granddaughter. She is always doing something fun with her hair!

I would like these because I put my hair up a lot, basically all summer long and then when I'm at the gym. These look like they would be more gentle on my hair than my current brand.

Dawn Monroe said...

My granddaughters hate to have their hair put up because it pulls, they would enjoy these.

xxertz said...

I would love to try these out. I tend to buy generic hair ties, which are pretty boring. These look like they're nicer on your hair and cuter than your typical hair tie.

Residual Chaos said...

My daughter wears her hair up EVERY day! You wouldn't believe how many of these get lost in our house. Love love love the kind that don't tear your hair!

Erica C. said...

We are always putting our hair up so this is nice.

Jennifer T. said...

We stretch out hair bands pretty fast in my house. I think these wouldn't leave a crimp in my straight hair.

Danielle PB said...

These are great and don't pull hair like some more traditional elastics.

Tanya Bartlett said...

I would like to have them because they are gentle on your hair

Caliens Contests said...

I desperately need these! I've got lots of fine, long hair. I'm constantly fighting flyaways and always have problems with my hair getting stuck even in non-stick bands. It sounds like these will be perfect when I'm working out, playing with the dogs, cooking and working in the yard. And no funky hair crunches left behind, either!

E. Diane said...

I would really like to try them myself. I have a ton of baby-fine hair so have the problem of kinks from elastics and elastics not staying put for very long. I think the wider CyndiBand would help with the kinks and I would love it if they also were able to hold my hair longer.
