The Best Spiral Hair Ties

If you have curly hair, chances are you’ve probably dealt with stretched out, broken hair ties at least once in your life. If this (along with headaches and creased hair) sounds like a common occurrence to you, it’s time to switch to spiral hair ties!

What are spiral hair ties?

Spiral hair ties feature a coiled shape that allow the hair to go through the hair tie evenly. Unlike traditional hair ties, plastic spiral hair ties have a smooth surface that won’t grab or tug at the hair. The best spiral hair ties are made from plastic which means they’re more hygienic too!

The Best Spiral Hair Tie

While many brands boast some awesome spiral hair ties, our favorite is from Invisibobble!

And we’re going to tell you what makes them so special.

Traditional hair ties are made from elastic, wool, cotton, or rubber. These rough materials can pull at the hair causing frizz and even breakage. Spiral hair ties are made from a strong plastic that allow the hair to easily slip through without any tugging. This means that they also easily glide out of your hair, so you don’t have to struggle with ripping out any hair when you go to take down your updo!

Because hair ties are typically made from fabric and elastic, they can harbor bacteria and even grow mold and mildew.The best spiral hair ties are made of plastic that won’t absorb moisture and cause bacteria. Plus, they’re much easier to clean–simply wipe them off with a damp paper towel. So, because they won’t get wet, that means you can use them during any activity including swimming and gym time!

Spiral hair ties aren’t tight to your head like traditional hair ties which means when you’re ready to let your hair down, you won’t be left with any kinks or creases in your hair. Simply let your curls down and spritz in a bit of DevaFresh to go from updo to flowing locks with ease! Also, because they aren’t super tight to your head, no more pesky headaches from too tight hair ties!

Unlike traditional hair ties which snap and break often when used with thick, curly hair, spiral hair ties are sturdier because they’re made from a durable plastic material. This means that they’re perfect for all hair types and textures. Spiral hair ties won’t stretch out and get ruined like regular hair ties either which means you don’t have to worry about having to redo your look throughout the day. All you have to do is put your hair up with a spiral hair tie and finish your look off with some Flexible Hold Hairspray!
