This Hack For Shrinking Stretched Invisibobbles Back To Their Original Shape Will Legit Change Your Life
There's no need to buy new ones when you can just do this to fix your over-stretched hair bands.
In the grand scheme of things, having to deal with the slight sadness that is an overstretched Invisibobble may seem pretty small fry. And that's probably because it is. But we're still guessing that this hack to easily fix your bent out of shape bobbles is going to be a bit of a lifesaver.
As you probably know if you've ever used one, Invisibobbles are a godsend. They tie up your ponytail or bun without tearing or snagging your hair. However, if there is one thing that is a teeny tiny bit annoying about them, it's the way these coiled plastic bobbles tend to get stretched out of shape the more that you use them.
