Disclosure: I received the Goody Ouchless Riboon Elastics complimentary influenster in my SunKissed VoxBox. All opinions are my own.
The Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics have such a unique look from a traditional hair band. Because I often wear my hair up I love to mix up the look, so I was really excited to see hair elastics with such a unique look! How have I not seen them before?
I love the various colors of these hair elastics as well as the style because I can also wear them on my wrist comfortably. It not only looks cute on my wrist, but I then have a hair elastic with me any time I need one. Because it gets so hot and humid here there are many times I go without having my hair up but quickly change my mind, so this has definitely come in handy!
Mostly, though, I have been using them for a standard ponytail. I know it’s boring, but as I mentioned – it’s HOT! I do everything I can to keep my hair up and off my neck and shoulders particularly when I’m outside or working around the house. I tried to do a loose low ponytail to really take advantage of the cute style of these elastics, but unfortunately, my shortest layers are still too short. So they would fall out, and it ended up not looking very cute at all! So, a regular old ponytail would have to suffice!
Let’s set style aside and talk function! These Ribbon Elastics really do their job! I have thick hair, and I have a hard time particularly with hair bands. I need something that won’t slip or get stretched out. The Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics have held up well! The elasticity is strong, they haven’t fallen out or gotten loose, they don’t pull my hair when I’m taking them out, and they haven’t gotten stretched out.
Overall, I’m happy with both their style and function! Goody has delivered once again! Check out a couple of other Goody products I have reviewed:
The Goody QuikStyle Half-Round Styler Brush (which I love so much I bought the paddle brush as well!)
and The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

I’m the same. It’s too hot in the summer to leave my hair down! It’s up all summer in a ponytail or bun. I started using ribbon elastics recently, but the ones I have loosened up after using them a few times. I might try the Goody elastics, because I like the concept, I just don’t love the brand I have.

I have that problem with most brands. Or worse, some even break because my hair is so thick!
Krista Bainbridge says
Both of my girls have really long and really thick hair. I did too up until I donated 15 inches earlier this year and find it hard to find quality hair things. Thanks for letting me know about these – I’ll look for them at Target this weekend!
Emilee Roberts says
I have donated hair, too! They were able to make 2 pony tails with mine because of the thickness! It IS hard to find quality hair accessories for thick hair!
Tammy Woodall says
One of the problems with having long hair and the heat of summer is trying to find a hair accessories that aren’t too tight, that don’t pull out your hair, and doesn’t give you a headache. Thanks for doing this review. I’ll definitely be putting these Goody’s Ouchless Ribbon Elastics on my “To Get List.”
