Kit-Sch Hair Ties:
here are so many hair products on AMAZON I don’t even really know where to begin. But the ultimate stocking stuffer might be Kit-Sch hair coils ($8 for 8 ties) . Their phone card type spiral design in plastic means you can wrap it tightly in your hair, but when you’re ready to remove it slides right off!
They’re kind to your hair, and fun to wear (stack a few as a bracelet and when you’re ready to go to the gym or it’s hot outside, pull it off and use it. There are clear, black and blonde versions as well in a gift-able cello-package,
Tip: If a hair coil gets stretched out too much, bathe it in some hot water. They spring back to the original shape. FYI: my search for “Hair” yielded 01,602 products.
