MiTi Paradise Collection

If you know me in person then there's a good chance that at some point over the last 6 months I've tried to push a MiTi on you, from the moment I popped one of things in my hair I was wowed that finally I'd found a product that truly didn't leave kinks in my hair or give me a headache. I've been wearing these ever since August and if I ever wear a normal hair-tie then I can tell the difference by mid-afternoon. My hair will feel tight and I'll start pulling it out and adjusting it, and if I'm wearing it in a bun then you can bet your bottom dollar I'll have to take it out and put it back up completely at least once over the course of the day. A MiTi, however, is another thing entirely. Offering much, much more grip than the ribbon-elastic-esque ties that I used to use that boasted leaving no kinks in your hair and working a lot better too. One thing I cannot stand is my hair feeling loose, it will annoy the hell out of me and I just can't leave it alone however too tight and I'll give myself a headache so to find a balance can be kind of tricky!

I'll admit that with the MiTi you do have to twist it more times the more than you use it (as with a standard hair-tie I guess) and after a few uses it is near impossible to get it as tight as the first time I wore it in my hair but it's still secure enough for me to feel satisfied and not want to play with my hair all day. The other thing that they are really handy for is when I want to wear my hair in a bun, due to the layers in my hair it can be a bit of a nightmare to get it all in and then, more importantly, to stay in but the coil design of the MiTi means that I can just tuck any random bits in throughout the day and not have to worry about taking it all down and starting again.

Obviously the main purpose of the MiTi (I think) is to leave your hair without the tell-tale kinks the day after you've worn it in a ponytail. I used to have to wash my hair after wearing it up as the only way to get the huge kink out but now I can put it down again that evening or the next morning and style it with ease. I wouldn't say that it stays poker straight or beautifully curled but that's more due to the fact that I generally wear these to bed and obviously sleep on my hair, causing it to lose it's style more than the fault of the MiTi itself. If I pop this in to go to the gym (obviously something I've not done in a long, long time) and then take it down after then it's just the way I left it. Perfect!

The new Paradise collection from MiTi excites me for summer, at the moment I only have block colours so these are more subtle in my hair and the colours are so cute. I'll be honest I don't really care about things being noticeable in my hair, the hair-ties that I used to wear would usually match my hair colour but that wasn't a particularly conscious choice and more of a happy coincidence but you can also get clear MiTi's if you wanted something more discreet. I, on the other hand, am loving wearing these colours in the sunnier weather and find that they match my new spring wardrobe perfectly!
