One of the greatest discoveries that I had found while being in Nanjing is these twist, plastic hair ties. When I had first saw them, I had no idea that they were hair ties. I thought they were a part of a key-chain or something. To my surprise, not only are these great at keeping all my hair in place during the scorching heat but they are oh-so stylish. They are so much better than a boring or typical elastic band. I have seen them on so many girls’ hair, which gives me the assumption that these are extremely popular here in China. They come in a huge variety of colours and patterns. For only $1 RMB each, you really can’t go wrong! I’m definitely stocking up on these before I leave.
