Size: 12 pcs
First of all, I have to say that the 12 piece item listing and reviews should be separate from the other 2 quantities offered here as these are not really the same type of product.

The 12 piece listing is for the fabric type of elastic that does NOT have a seam in it. These are the ones that you can sort of unroll into a flat circle piece of fabric. (I added a photo of an "inside-out view of these so you can see what I'm talking about.) There is no seam or glue that will break after a couple of uses. As far as the reviews, many of the negative reviews are for the other type of elastic and the primary complaint seems to be that they break at the seam. For that reason, I think the reviews here are a little misleading, or confusing at the least.

Anyway, I have used this type of pony tail holder ONLY for at least the past 10-12 years. I usually buy a new pack 1-2 times a year to replace those that get lost. I have NEVER had one of these break. Recently, I started to get low on these and went to the usual stores to get more. I was extremely disappointed that I did not find them in any store where I looked. I went through the house and found a few to last a little longer hoping they were just out of stock for a short time. It has now been about 6 months, and I still can't find them. That is when I decided to look on Amazon! :)

I almost overlooked the 12 piece listing here because it was hard to tell if they were the right type from the small image I was looking at on the app on my phone. I decided to read the reviews here, and I saw all the complaints about breaking. I immediately just assumed they were the wrong type. Then I noticed that there were different quantities available. I decided to check out the picture and details from my laptop to get a better view.

These are just what you would expect. The nice thing about these is that they do not have a metal crimp connector. They are glued together instead.

My wife uses these for putting her hair back, but I use them for a completely different purpose.

I use these instead of rubber bands for holding my camera gear, guitar cords, and electrical cords together. I know it might sound funny, but these are less prone to breaking than a rubber band. When I'm out and about with my photo gear is real inconvenient if a rubber band is snapped. With these, I don't typically have that problem. I know these can break too, but they have so far fared much better than the typical rubber band. They also don't get tangled and knotted as easily as rubber bands.

Overall, we'd buy these again.

-Cheers!

These are the *best* elastic bands for my thick hair. They are incredibly strong, and the only hair ties that I've found that have no "weak point" or seam where the band can start to break after repeated use. I've been using these for years and they never seem to lose elasticity! If I could just manage to stop losing them I'm positive one purchase of these would last me a lifetime. I don't know how these aren't more popular! They are becoming super difficult to find in stores so I'm glad to have found them here on Amazon. I've paid anywhere from $3.99-$5.24 for the 12 piece set. The shipment arrived exactly as expected and was prompt and on time. The only downside is that you cannot comfortably wear them on your wrist unless you are a small child - I tend to wear them wrapped around a finger instead. Would definitely recommend these to anyone with *thick* hair!

I had been looking all over for these after losing my package of them (that I had had for years) in a move. To be specific, I was looking for the ones that were made of a stretchy fabric, were kind of flat, did not have any "seam" at all and were one continuous circle. They were not the elastics wrapped in black material and glued at the seam. The 12-pack that I ordered here was exactly what I was looking for.

My hair is more like a mane (exactly like Troy Polamalu's) and most elastics end up breaking after a few uses. The ones that were glued usually don't last two or three days. I was able to use these for well over a year before either one of my cats stole it or I just plain lost it, usually at the hairdresser's. Never did one ever break. These are the only ones I will use now and I am stocking up on them since I could not find them in any stores.

They do tend to stretch out, though, but my hair is very thick and that is to be expected. The most important thing is that I never had one break on me. :)

These work really well for keeping my hair tied back, but my husband finds that they often snap within the first day of him using them. I probably won't buy them again because they're no use for him (he has thick, curly hair) but if I were using them just for me, I would continue to buy them. My hair is long and straight, medium thickness, and these do not break for me. Buyers should be fine with these as long as their hair is not too thick.

I had 3 break the first time I tried using them to put my hair into a ponytail. I was rather disappointed. I have gotten Scunci products before and I haven't had this issue...Unfortunately, this time I did. I love that they are metal free. The price and the fact that they were metal free, are the only reasons why I am even giving this a 2 rating. I had to go to the store to buy more hair ties because these ones kept breaking before I even got them in my hair.
