UPDATE 4-25-13 Now that I have used these a little longer, I have found out that all of the bands are not exactly the same. Some will stretch farther than others. Therefore, I must amend part of my statement. Some of the bands will stretch to hold a lot more than the 3/8", as I stated earlier. I still haven't found one that will stretch to hold my whole ponytail, but I have really thick hair. Also, I have found that they last longer than I thought they might. To date, I have not had one break and I am still using the original 4 that I got out of the package when I first got them. I have also found that if I need to hold just a tiny bit of hair, they are amazing. I used to have keep redoing my hair because the clip wouldn't hold my hair securely. Now I just use a band then put the clip over it, and wala! No slipping! Highly recommend them.
With the Goody Clear Elastic Bands, the material is thin, easily tangled (and difficult to untangle), and extremely limited in stretchability. Most of them break as I'm trying to use it for the second time ever, and a few of them have snapped off as I'm out and about. Maybe if you have thin hair, this will work okay, but for me, it's worse than rubber bands.
(Oh, and I've used other Goody bands with success, so it's not like my hair is impossible to curtail in general. I would just avoid this line in particular.)
I've been using these goody elastics since I was probably a teenager and I'm now 30. I have a 7 yr old girl with super thick hair down to her bottom. These are the only elastics I've ever been able to use in her hair. ive used clear ones and multi colored ones in all various sizes, all have been amazing and a single package seemed like it was lasting forever. They would eventually get excessively stretched out and yet they would just keep going and never break! I finally ran out and bought a package a few months ago.......they are nothing like they were. I can't even wrap them around my daughters hair twice before they snap. So I thought it was a bad package and bought more at a different store with the very same problem. I bought black ones too just to try something different with the same problem. All I can do with my daughters hair is a single long braid and even then they don't survive even a half school day. She can't stand her hair down and right now I have no other choice. I cannot even use these in my mid length thin hair for a simple pony tail. I've tried them 3 times in one week and every single time they snap while in my hair for no apparent reason. I even contacted goody with all this information and was completely ignored. They've made no attempt to make the situation right or even try to defend their products. Very disappointed!! All I want are the original elastics I've used forever!!
Side note to this review:
I submitted this review on the goody website for this particular product and they emailed me saying the review dos not meet their guidelines and would not be published!
I highly recommend using a different product.
I found scunnci brand to have a thicker/more bully silicone elastic that is very good so far!

These work great. They hold up great, and slide right out of your hair when it's time to remove them.
However, you really can only use them once. Read more

I bought this 'same pack' once before, maybe two years ago. Those were well made and I still have and use some of the few I didn't lose.
THESE, however, are awful. Read more

I would recommend black/brown elastics for brunette hair. I thought that they would just blend in with my dark hair since they are clear but they are much more obvious in dark... Read morePublished 2 months ago by mosmo47
Terrible! Rip apart at one time use. During the day my pony tail just falls apart as the band rips.Published 2 months ago by Stephanie Rieben
Better than the average elastics but not meant for more than 1-2 times use. They constantly break on me!Published 3 months ago by Customer
A few years ago these would last forever. I only had to buy new ones because I would lose them. The recent ones are of a different kind of plastic material and I could never use... Read morePublished 3 months ago by JohnH
