I have a daughter who loves to wear ponytails almost everyday. We use the polybands (rubber hairbands that have a flat edge) because they are supposed to be no tangle/no pull. Regardless of the "no pull" she still ends up in tears every night.
I keep a pair of small scissors in the drawer we keep her hair stuff in and we carefully clip the rubber band and simply brush the band out. The bands are usually around $1-$1.50 for a pack of 300.
A small price to pay for peaceful hair management.
Have any tips for removing ponytail holders without pulling? Or have you found any "snag-free" bands that trully are snag-free?
