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.
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goody website for this particular product and they emailed me saying the review dos not meet their guidelines and would not be published!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, however, are awful. Out of the five I have used thus far every one has broken without any good reason while I was out. I wasn't tugging on them, I hadn't stretched them beyond reason. They simply snapped and couldn't be repaired. After adjusting your ponytail two or three times these bands become so incredibly brittle that you can actually see a difference in them. You get about one day's wear out of each of them unless they're treated very delicately. If you plan on putting any sort of stress on these, like with a high pony tail you plan to wear all day, expect it to fail and carry extras or pass on these altogether.
However, I do believe that these might hold decently for less stressful uses like the ends of braids or certain kinds of updos.
Any way you look at it though, there are similar products at comparable prices that are probably better.

These work really well for my thin hair, although once I use them I just throw it away afterwards because it stretches out. Read morePublished 10 days ago by AmyL
Great for fancy updos or pulling back a tight pony. They've never broken on me unless I reallllly pull on them. Sometimes I will double them up for extra hold.Published 18 days ago by Amy

The minimum they let you is one star. Deserves zero.
Made to brake and loose elasticity.
It used to be very resistant but they wanted to sell more frequently. 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 10 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 11 months ago by Stephanie Rieben
This product has changed. They are now made of a much weaker material that does not hold hair with any strength, and they easily break. The old ones hardly ever broke. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Jocelyn S Buhler
