Product Review: EZ Combs As Seen on TV
If you've been shopping at all, you must have seen EZ Combseverywhere! From your drug stores, to Walmart, to street venues and fairs, etc. I mean, EZ Combs are supposedly the new and improved hair clips. Since these hair clips have been constantly in my face, I finally gave in and bought 2 for $10. I was looking forward to something new because while I'm working, I always throw my hair in a ponytail. At the end of the day however, I'm pulling out handfuls of hair through the ponytail holder because of the stress. Not only was I just curious to see if this new product was really the bomb, but I felt like I needed to find a way to put my hair up with something more gentle.
So, I bought it. I've had it for a week now and I'm usually great with hair stuff. I am coordinated and I can utilize any weird product out there when it comes to hair. I will have to say, these things are mildly annoying. It is definitely not the most user friendly for beginners. At first, I didn't feel like it was tight enough. Then I realized that if you push it more together, it becomes looser. So I would stretch it out really far but I felt like I was giving myself a mini face lift when I did that. Which I guess isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I tried out all of the different looks. I did the half up ponytail, ponytail, french twist, butterfly twist, etc. At one point I just clawed it into my head at a random spot. Some worked out well -- the half up ponytail was cute. The ponytail and french twist I had to do over and over throughout the day because it kept getting loose. In the commercials, they say you can workout and use the EZ comb and it would stay put. I have a hard time believing that. I am not completely pushing this product aside, but I definitely don't think it's worth $5 a piece. I've seen places sell it for $15 and that's just ridiculous. I'm only upset that I bought it at a drug store, 2 for $10, which I guess isn't that bad, however, ebay is sooo much cheaper.
I definitely think that it's worth replacing a traditional claw because it's more comfortable to wear. With a traditional claw, you can't even lean back in your chair without resting your head on a big hunk of plastic. But with the EZ comb, you don't have to worry about that. It doesn't hurt to try this product out for yourself, just make sure you're getting the best value for it.
