A little while ago I was sent a lovely chocolate box of Invisibobbles in eight different colours, so I’ve been really enjoying trying out the different shades to see which is my favourite. Turns out, I prefer the neutrals such as the black, white and clear, although the hot pink is very pretty and I tend to keep reaching for the yellow too.
Invisibobbles are great little inventions for anyone who ties their hair back. They hold the hair in position without leaving a kink or mark, so they won’t interfere with your hairstyle. They’re also a lot kinder to hair as they hold the hair a lot less aggressively than a hairband does.
Don’t be fooled by thinking that their gentle nature and shiny appearance means they won’t hold your hair properly – I’d say these are actually more effective at keeping my hair in position than hair bands or ties. To put it into perspective, when I tie my hair up at night with a normal hair band, by the time I wake up, the hair band has disappeared, whereas if I go to sleep with an Invisibobble in place, it’ll still be in my hair in the morning.
The other thing that’s great about Invisibobbles is that they seem to be a lot harder to lose than hairbands. I have no idea how I manage to lose so many hairbands, but I always have and it’s very annoying! Invisibobbles are available in a great selection of colours and cost £3.75 for a pack of 3 here – link. They’re obviously reusable and last until you lose them, but just be careful not to stretch them too much.
