When I got the email asking if I’d review these On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets from Active Accessories I was a bit skeptical. We buy the cheap bargain packs of hair bands from WalMart for multiple reasons, but mostly because of the price and because my daughter has a horrible habit of losing them in droves. The On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets come in a pack containing (6) hair ties for $7.99. Seeing the price of these I thought, “How can I promote these when I’d never spend that kind of money on six hair ties?” But after reading more about them I decided I needed to give them a shot. I’m so glad I did because they ROCK and I will certainly be buying more.
First off, they’re adorable. Available in fun colors and patterns, they certainly appeal to my crazy need to be matchy-matchy with everything I wear, from my hair ties to my socks and, yes, even down to my undergarments that nobody can see. We received the bubble gum pop and polka dot sets which we love, but they also have tons of other super adorable sets I have on my wish list to buy soon, including the neon set, warm set (because, chevron!) and the “run” set.
Aside from how fun they are, I love them because they have proven to be so much better than your average WalMart hair tie purchase. For starters- and one of the main reasons I decided to give them a try- I no longer have to worry about my daughter cutting off her circulation when she leaves one (or more) on her arm. That’s right, these are made with soft, stretchy material so they will not cut off your circulation when worn on the wrist. I decided to give it a test, just to be sure.
For this reason alone, I’m sold. My daughter tends to leave the hair ties on her wrist and then fall asleep at night with them on, and it always freaks me out when I check on her at night and find them on her wrist. Yikes!!
Plus, my daughter loves to wear them on her wrists as well as in her hair because they look like fun bracelets- a must-have fashion accessory for my *almost* preteen. And because they’re so fun she doesn’t seem to “lose” these like she does the cheap WalMart ones!
These are also fantastic because they come out of the hair easily as well- no ripping out hair, no more getting caught in the tangles or causing tangles when removing! My daughter’s hair is long and it tangles ridiculously fast. She has done some damage to her hair from yanking through the tangles, causing broken ends. These are the only bands we’ve used so far that don’t get caught in her hair. This makes for a happy girl (pain-free) and a happy mama (no more damaging her beautiful hair)!
We also received the super cute On-The-Go Accessory Pouch, which is available in 4 fun colors but I chose the cutest- the pink and grey circles.
I’m loving this for my quick grab and go wallet for when I head out to work out but still need a wallet. It’s the perfect size to hold my drivers license, debit card, and phone. It has a fun little zippered pouch good for holding a myriad of things (ie: feminine products or On-The-Go Hair Bands!) and it even has a place for my keys!
-Ripstop Nylon Exterior – Water resistant, light weight (2.2 ounces) and very durable
-Polyester Interior – Strong yet soft fiber to cushion valuables
