This can be such a faff but, today, I’m going to show you an awesome hack for removing tiny rubber bands without pulling your hair.

This hack is so easy and is going to save your hair from a lot of damage in the long run. All you need is a curling iron. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Curling iron

Simply take your hot curling iron and gently press it against the rubber bands in your hair for a brief moment.

Try to avoid applying heat onto the hair directly.

    Won’t the rubber melt on the curling iron? I realize it’s held there for just a few seconds, but still.
