It seems like everything is costing a lot more these days. From groceries to utilities, and gas to clothing, we’ve seen prices go up nationwide and even worldwide. So now, more than ever, it’s important to be smart with your money, and that’s where we can help!
The first time you head over to our website and see the price of a PONY-O, you might experience a bit of sticker shock. We understand! Paying that price for one ordinary hair elastic would be absolutely crazy. But, we aren’t an ordinary elastic. In fact, there’s nothing elastic or stretchy about PONY-O products! Our hair ties are constructed of a malleable copper on the inside and a soft, hair friendly silicone coating on the outside. Our unique, patented products bend instead of stretching!
COMPARE THE COST OF ELASTIC HAIR TIES
If you went to Wal-Mart and purchased a 60 piece pack of elastics, your average cost would be around $6, ten cents for each elastic. Seems like a good deal, right? Well, let’s go a step further. What value are you getting for your $6?
Elastic hair ties aren’t meant to last; some snap and stretch out of shape the first time you use them, especially in thick hair. That’s no flaw…it’s a feature. The average use for an elastic is 1-2 times, costing you twenty cents per wear. At this rate, a person using an elastic hair tie would go through 60 pieces in one month. This doesn’t take into account the number of stretchy hair ties, right around 15 million each day, that are lost or lying on the ground. Conservatively, we’ll assume that a person will spend at least $72 per year on elastic hair ties.
COMPARE THE COST OF PONY-O
The PONY-O in hair blending colors currently sells for $8, assuming you don’t use one of our discount codes (but why would you do that?!).
Let’s say you purchase one PONY-O just to try. The patented design we wrote about earlier is something we worked on for years. This design, and specifically the copper core, make PONY-O products extremely durable, with an average lifespan of 200-300 uses!
With proper care, like straightening PONY-O every few wears, you can increase that lifespan significantly.
When you do the math, wearing the PONY-O averages less than three cents per wear! So it’s very possible that one PONY-O would last an entire year or more! That means you could have an extra $64 in your pocket simply by switching to a PONY-O hair tie.
DAMAGING VS. NON-DAMAGING
It’s no secret that elastic hair ties damage and leave a ridge of broken hair where the elastic sits. Using them to secure a super tight ponytail can also cause permanent damage to the hair follicle, and that’s something no one would intentionally do to themselves! When you add in the expense of maintaining hair health, the cost of elastic hair ties skyrockets!
PONY-O products are secure AND non-damaging in every hair type. You can say goodbye to damaged, frayed hair. So yeah…even more money in your pocket.
DID YOU KNOW?
This is mind-blowing: more than 5.5 Billion (with a “B”) hair ties are purchased every year. If these hair ties were purchased in a 60 piece pack, that would equal 91,166,666 packs, and more than $550 million put into the pockets of big corporations every year. To top that off, those elastic hair ties will never decompose or break down; they’ll stay in the landfills forever.
There is a choice: PONY-O products are recyclable, hair friendly and environmentally friendly! Once its lifespan is over, the copper and silicone can both be repurposed. Not only will you get more bang for your buck when you purchase one of our bendable hair ties, you’ll also be supporting a small, woman owned and operated business, instead of a nameless, faceless corporation.
