First a note about pronunciation: I say "scrun-chee" and everyone I know says "scrun-chee." However, if you look at how this product is spelled, it seems to be that we should all be calling them "scun-sees," which is a big difference. But no matter how you pronounce it, these are the most recognizable and well-known hair bands. We've been buying them for years (and they're the only ones my wife will use) for one main reason: they don't pull out and rip at your hair! Bands with metal or exposed elastic simply end up tearing out your hair, and who grows out their hair only to destroy it with a scrunchi/scunci?

Note that this is a multipack assortment, meaning that you get some thicker ones and some thinner ones -- though they're all black. It's also not unusual to get a few duds in a pack of these, which I show you an example of in my video. By "dud" I simply mean that some scuncis don't have much stretch to them. So it turns out that not all scuncis are created equally. But most are identical and work well, which is why they're so perfect.

Yes, scuncis do break with use (over time), and they sometimes lose their elasticity. But a pack like this will last my wife over a year -- and she's a daily scuncis user. In fact, I never see her without one in her hair or around her wrist, just in case she needs one.

In my opinion, these are so great because they're a perfect combination of minimal design mixed with maximum usefulness. They simply get the job of holding up a ponytail or bun without wrecking the hair, and that's all anyone has ever asked of a scunci.

This product was NOT given to me as part of any promotion. I bought it after doing some comparison shopping and this review is entirely the result of my own opinions and use of the product.

I have medium texture hair - not too thin, not too thick. So, I thought these would be PERFECT for me! WRONG. They are RUBBER, and when you take them out, it hurts like crap. Would not recommend these to anyone, especially those with medium/thin hair ...

These are one use hair bands. They stretch to 3x their original size and lose all elasticity after first use, but they do give you a bunch.

I bought these for myself, and I don't have long hair. Here are some uses:

- To keep shoelace loops from flopping, weave these into the lattice of laces instead of tucking the loops under the front span of shoelace.

- The Velcro seals on cell phone holsters will grow weak over time. These will keep them from falling open while not greatly impeding access.

- Nite-Ize phone holsters have a flat pocket behind the main holster pouch, between it and the rotating clip. This pocket is sized for a phone battery, but doesn't have any way to prevent the battery from slipping out. A small daisy-chain of these will do that.

- Clip-on bike tail lights will fall off when clipped to backpacks, messenger bags, etc. These make great lanyards to keep them from falling completely off.

These are great hair ties! I love that there is a variety in thickness so I can use them for different types of hair styles. I also love that there is no metal on them to pull or get stuck in my hair. I have long hair and these work great for me! I will buy these from now on!

I have fairly thick, mostly straight hair. These are my favorite hair ties, but they wear out after a few weeks.

Pros:
- Inexpensive. A dollar a dozen, hard to beat that!
- No metal parts to tug on your hair
- Good color for dark hair

Cons:
- After a few uses the hair tie starts to stretch to the point of having little elasticity

I wear my hair in a pony tail or bun nearly every day, and I like my hair pulled back tight. I try to wrap the tie around my ponytail at least 4 times, and my ponytail is almost 2 inches in diameter. So I usually alternate between four different ties over a month or so. Giving a break between uses seems to extend their lives.

Every Scunci product we've ever bought has been a disappointment - avoid their crappy products if you can. Their hairbands typically last less than a month and often fail on the first use. If they don't break outright they stretch and lose elasticity - you'd be better off with a piece of string!

I bought these once before and they were great. But this time when I bought it this time they were incredibly cheap. Most of them have broken before wearing them for a few hours. They are thin and all different sizes. I will not buy these again. Absolutely do not recommend buying these
