Styling Big Hair with Snappee; Twists, Braids & Locs March 13 2015

Styling Big Hair With Snappee

Twists, Braids, & Locs

Whether you’re rocking twists like Brandy, stay braided up like Beyonce, or sporting gorgeous faux locs like Zendaya, you've probably experienced one of the following problems.: either your hair tie is too tight and it breaks or it's not big enough to fit multiple times around your ultra thick hair.

You try to stretch your old elastic hair tie wide enough to fit around your hair, and before you even get your hair through it, your rubber-band breaks right at the melted seam! But let's imagine that you manage to get your hair into the rubber band without it breaking, except this time the elastic is too tight for you to wrap more than once so you're stuck with a loose and sloppy ponytail. The elastic is simply not flexible enough to meet your needs.

Luckily for you, Snappee does the trick! Our no damage hair tie is an extra stretchy and extra soft hair accessory that can support your hair. Because of the snap off technology, you are able to snap multiple hair ties together to create the perfect strength and length to fit your hair.

 

 Above you can see the luscious braids of one of our friends wrapped neatly and securely with a few Snappees. She also shows a braided style with just one Snappee holding it in place. Meanwhile, he's done the wrap and snap with his loss and has no damage when taking the hair tie out.

5 Simple Tips for Loving the Hair You Have

With Valentine's Day upon us, we thought it especially apropos to talk about

L--V-E

It's not always easy to love the hair atop our head. It can be especially difficult for those of you transitioning to your natural hair style for the first time. It can be very frustrating to feel as if you have no control over your locks, but a little love can go a long way. That's why we came up with this simple list of ways to practice loving our hair! But don't stop there, apply these tips and practice self love as well!

1. Be Gentle

Truly touch your hair with care and consideration. Try finger combing your hair in the shower in preparation for brushing/combing. Use gentle, non-damaging products such as the Snappee Hair Tie or silk wraps to treat your hair right. 

   

2. Take Your Time

Take your time to detangle with care. We recommend a wide tooth comb and a Denman brush for getting the rest of the pesky knots out safely. When styling, be mindful of causing damage for the sake of saving time. What's the rush? 

3. Give Yourself the Best

It may take a bit of time (and money) to test out hair products, but once you have found your regimen don't skimp. You and your hair deserve the very best and don't you forget it! Some of our favorites include Wen, Kinky Curlyand Shea Moisture (pictured left), Moroccan Oil (not pictured) and Snappee Hair Ties of course!

4. Stay Hydrated

Challenge yourself to drink more water every day. Use a moisturizing conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and a deep conditioner from time to time. Another tip is avoiding over-processing and handling your hair - try protective hair styles. At night, put your hair up in a pineapple or wrap your hair in a scarf.

5. Accept Your Quirks

This may be the most challenging and quite possibly the most important tip for loving your hair, and loving yourself! Sometimes it feels like our hair has a mind of it's own. Go with it! Our quirks are what make us unique. Love every aspect of who you are including the cowlicks, grey hairs, varying textures and all!

Happy New Year from Snappee! January 15 2015


After over 100 years of rubber bands damaging the hair of women and men, far and wide, we thought it was time to revolutionize the hair game. With the Snap Off hair technology, Snappee™ is giving hair care an upgrade and moving us into the 21st century.

We have all experienced the traumatic snagging and breakage caused by those regular old elastic hair ties. Or worse, having to cut the hair your hair tie out because of how violently entangled the elastic band has got in your locks. 

Enough is enough! Stop the damage, stop the trauma, and save your hair with the new hair trend: Snappee, the Snap Off Hair Tie™.

  

 

Snappee™ is non-elastic, extra stretchy and extra soft to protect your hair from breakage. Wrap and snap your hair into any hair style of your choice or use like a traditional hair tie. The brilliance of the product is really seen when it’s time to remove your hair tie - just UNSNAP and watch as the hair tie unravels from your hair without pulling chunks of your precious locks out in the process. 

As if saving your hair wasn’t enough, Snappee™ has quite a few more amazing features:

  • Washer & Dryer friendly - hair tie stretched out? just toss it in your regular laundry routine and watch your hair ties snap back to their original size!
  • Universal hair tie for EVERYONE - it works on all hair types from bone straight to thick hair to 4C curlies, it’s great for men and women, and to top it off, these little gadgets are hypoallergenic for anyone with sensitivity. 
  • Doubles as a fashionable accessory - no more stretched out, hair infested rubber bands around your wrist looking like a fur ball your cat coughed up… it’s not cute and you know it… Snappee™ is a cute bracelet and can be accessorized to match any outfit!
  • Long lasting - they won’t be trash once they stretch out (see above washing and drying routine) and they don’t break if you pull too hard on them!

We at Snappee™ rang in the new year by celebrating the thousands of hair strands we saved in the last few months of 2014. Our new year’s resolution is to rescue a million hair strands in 2015! What’s your new year’s resolution? Consider joining the Snappee™ revolution!
