I’ve been a long-hair since early 1988. I did trim it some because I worked at a fascist amusement park that wanted to portray “family values” or something. But after that, below my shoulders. I had long hair even as I taught school.
However, it wasn’t until I took an office job that I began to pull it back and keep it tied. So, for 12-13-14 years now, I’ve been a loyal fan of Scunci brand hair ties. They don’t hurt your hair, ya know.
But man-o-man have they upset me. Always I have found the ties to be incredibly durable. Hot or cold, wet or dry, these things kept their tightness in tact. The last batch I bought however, they lose their ability to remain tight after 3-5 days. Then I have to pitch it and use another.
Corporate greed at it’s worse. Creating a product that wears out quicker.
So listen up fleabaggers! If you wanna protest, protest Scunci!
Being bald for many years now, I wish I had your problem.
