Often I get asked about the types of rubber bands I use. I have three types I use regularly. The first looks like this:
These are the rubber bands I use on my DD’s hair for things like single ponytails. Hairdo’s where most or all of the hair is gathered into one rubber band. My girls have enough hair I need a pretty big band to hold it all.
For two braids, two ponytails, small braids or twists, or hairdo’s with smaller amounts of hair I use these rubber bands…
This is a picture of the bands together so you can see the difference between actual sizes…
This is a picture of the rubber bands I would avoid at all costs. I find these pull a TON and most often need to be cut out of your DD’s hair!
I buy all my rubber bands and elastics at Walmart or Target. I think they cost around $2-$5 each packet.
**NOTE**If your DD freaks when you pull out small elastics, just cut them out. The little clear ones are cheap enough you can just re-buy. It might be worth not having the drama.
