Don't be put off by the price of these hair ties. The only thing that's better than the ethics surrounding this product is the sheer quality, longevity and comfort. They are the only organic cotton and plastic free hair ties in the world and they simply do not compromise on ethics or quality.
The Kooshoo Hair Ties are ridiculously comfortable and don't pull on the hair, they hold really well and are stronger than other hair ties we have tried. When you first pick one up and stretch it, they don't stretch quite as far as elastic ones do, but that's where their endurance lies. They are a firm hold and outlast cheaper hair ties. As long as you don't endlessly misplace them, over 12 months, you will save money with these and they came in to the world with zero plastic - none in the manufacture, the packaging, and they're shipped to you the same way, without plastic.
Manufactured in the USA from just organic cotton and natural rubber, if you accidentally lose one, they're 100% biodegradable and won't end up still littering in 20 years time.
The cotton covers are hand dyed using a low impact dye. Wash them as you would any cotton, in cold water and lay flat to dry. The colour may run on a first wash so either wash them by hand or in the laundry with like colours.
Before stocking these, we gave them to staff, friends and several of our male couriers with long hair. All came back to us with glowing reports of how well they hold.
