These are everything. For someone who has such thick hair like myself, these are perfect. They do break occasionally when stretched a bit, but I think that is partly because of the thickness of my hair. They do the job though. Love them.
These work great for my long thick hair. They don't pull my hair or get stuck!
I really enjoy this product for my long, thick, curly hair. I write a detailed review of the hair ties on my blog here http://curlytopwithalollipop.blogspot.com/2015/08/product-review-good-sturdy-hair-ties.html
