Be Kind to Your Hair with Fashionable On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets- Review

Active Accessories On-The-Go Hair Band BraceletsWe were sent the following for review purposes. Regardless, all thoughts expressed are my own.

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.

Polka Dot and Bubble Gum PopFirst 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.

On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets setsAside 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. 

CirculationFor 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!

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. 

On-The-Go Accessory PouchI’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
-“Perfect” Size – Large enough to hold your smart phone, small enough for your earrings
-Snap Button Holder – Inside button allows you to clip in rings or hoop earrings
-Ripstop Nylon Handle with Hook – Use the pouch as a clutch or clip it onto any bag

We’ll definitely be getting more of the On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets soon.  Look for the On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets on and on the website,  Check out Active Accesories on Facebook and Twitter– fun stuff goin’ on over there!


  1. The On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets are cute. I always wear my hair pulled back – these would make a nice change from my regular hair ties. I like the fact that I can pick out my colors on Amazon. Since i wear a lot black they have a perfect set for me.

  2. I have been buying a lot of hair bands like this since I saw them in the store last year. We even have a few that have rhinestones on them! LOL!

  3. These are the ONLY thing I use in my hair and I love them. They don’t pull and rip like other hair bands which is great for me.

  4. What a cute idea! I love how the bracelets can be matching from your hair to your hands!

  5. I wear mine like bracelets when I go work out and then put my hair in a ponytail… this would be much better. I love that accessory pouch, too!

  6. These are so great! Now I don’t have to worry about damaging my hair when I just HAVE to get it out of my face.

  7. I love hair ties line these! I just found them recently myself and they really are awesome! I used to get the wrist crease too! These don’t do that and look great as bracelets!

  8. These look great and I’m like you , I like to buy the inexpensive hair bands but sometimes you have to spend more to get a great product. Love the design selections.

  9. I love these type of hair elastics, my hair is very fine and my daughters is curly and tangles easily so these are perfect for both of us!

  10. I love these. They dont pull on my hair and are cute too.

  11. Those are really cute hair bands and I love how you can wear them as bracelets. My daughter always puts her hair ties around her wrist and it leaves a mark like the one you showed. It drives me nuts.

  12. I like that they be better for your hair and cause less breakage. I would totally use those if I let my hair grow back out.

  13. Those are really both practical and cute. I would much rather wear one of those over an elastic type band. I can see why your daughter loves wearing them as bracelets too.

  14. I love this idea! I usually have a hair tie around my wrist, but these would be so much more stylish than what I use. Thanks for sharing a new hair tie idea with me, my girls may just need these for Christmas Gifts 😉

  15. I received a few of these with a brand logo from a vitamin company. They are hands down the best hair ties I have come across.

  16. I always have my hair up in a pony tail so I would definitely be interested in this. I love how cute and stylish they are. Not at all boring like the ones I usually wear.

  17. My daughter (4 years old) LOVES these! I love that they don’t pull her hair out when she takes them out. Honestly, I’ve never tried them, but I might have to! I love that they don’t leave a mark in your wrist. I always have the hair tie mark. :/ Haha!!

  18. LOVE that on the go accessory pouch. I could really use it and will go check out their site. I could use some of the bands for the gym! lol I hate getting pony tails stuck in my hair. Thanks for the review.

  19. I just started using this style and I love it! They are perfect for the gym!

    I always wear my hair up at home, and these easy to use hair accessories would look great for me to use this Spring and Summer while outdoors exercising. I really like them!
