How to Soften Hair Elastics

Soak them in Coconut Oil before using them! It softens them right up and makes them much more gentle to your precious strands of hair!

I also like to use elastics that they give you for braces instead of regular hair rubber bands ... I discovered this trick as a braces-wearing teenager! :)  The rubber is much softer and the bands are smaller (so less to wrap around) and they are more stretchy than the standard brands you can buy at a drugstore.
