Hair Ties Made of Condoms

Can you imagine taking apart these hair ties.....


And discovered.............


There's a condom inside? O_O


Several news websites such as USAToday and Snopes confirmed that some hair bands manufactured in southern China were found to have been made from recycled condoms. While Snopes states that some of the hair bands were created using low quality or factory rejected condoms, the site also indicates, "it is not clear that, as claimed, some or all of the hair ties' hidden surprises were condoms that had reached their original intended market and been used before being recycled. If the latter case were true, they could serve to spread sexually-transmittable diseases because they might still harbor certain bacteria and viruses."

Wow! This is part of the reason why I'm avoiding "MADE IN CHINA" products. Be it made of low quality or factory rejected, it is still a condom!!! If it's not good enough for stocking shelves, it is not good enough for my hair! And plus, why would you wanna wear a condom on your hair? to be cute? Yuck!

  13. When I first started using it I thought it was awesome as hell! Either I'm use to it now or I just don't notice a difference because it already improved my eye area. I don't have wrinkles or anything, so this is used for preventative measures. It's very moisturizing and has definitely helped me a bit with dark circles and puffiness. No eye cream gets rid of that completely. Try getting a sample to try!

    My ex lives in Riverside, so I'll be staying with him. But we're bound to go to LA, Irvine, OC, etc. I do want to get some outlet shopping and Jap markets in as well =)

    Where are you?

  17. Almost all viruses that are responsible for sexually transmitted diseases will die immediately outside of their hosts. They are highly temperature sensitive. This is why it's very unlikely that women will get sexual diseases from sitting directly on uncovered public toilet seats. Condom hairbands, Nasty! Sexually transmitted disease from them, extremely unlike.
