All Tie-Dyed Up

At my sister-in-law’s relaxing bachelorette weekend at exhale a few months ago, a friend discovered a little bowl of stretchy tie-dye hair bands, and we couldn’t resist. Three months later, they are now my most favorite things. They hold hair so well, without pulling at odd places, and they look as put together as a little ribbon.

I’m not sure where exhale gets them, but I just stumbled upon Mane Message, out of Berkeley, CA, which produces some especially sweet ones. It doesn’t look like they are giving any proceeds to charity, and no word about earth or people-friendly production or sourcing. But I do know that instead of going through pack after pack of 50 hairbands from the drug store, and losing and leaving elastics all over the place, I’ve used and kept just two blue and green bands all summer. Seems more sustainable to me.

Hope you can enjoy a few, maybe even this shoreline collection, for summer!
