How to restore Invisibobble to its original shape ?!

My Invisibobble counterfeits that I bought at H&M work very well. Although I'm curious what is the difference between them and the original version, but for now these erasers must be enough for me.
What exactly are Invisibobble? They are rubber bands that visually resemble a telephone cable.

Why, then, have they become so popular with hair lovers?
They are great for curls, because they do not crush like traditional erasers (after traditional erasers, the hair is usually flap where you tie it with an eraser. In addition, it often leaves a mark).
In addition, these bands do not pull out the hair, which is probably the best argument that it is worth having them in your vanity case.
After several months of use, my fakes Invisibooble began to lose their properties more and more. It is true that they still do not pull out the hair, but unfortunately I had to tie my hair more and more times.
I began to wonder what could restore their natural shape, until suddenly I came up with a brilliantly simple idea. Hot water! That's how she restored the original properties of these erasers.
Just heat the water to make it very warm (almost boiling water), throw stretched rubber bands into the bowl and cover them with water. Leave for 10 seconds, carefully remove and dry with a paper towel.
And it's ready! In the pictures you will see the effect before and after :)

    I intend to order them soon, your patent with hot water will definitely be useful to me 😀

      I recommend, it immediately restores its original shape :)

    I will tell my friend, she uses them and swears that they stretch 🙂

      You're welcome. I don't know if it'll work with original invisibobble.

      If you buy, let me know how they work 🙂

    Somehow I have not convinced myself and I have never bought original or fake ones. How would you like to stick to this wonder? I am a little afraid that on my straight, thin hair these elastics will not work well :(.

      I think they can work well, because they seem to blend into the hair so much that there is no chance that, for example, they slip, e.g. in the case of a gadget to bob, which slips from slippery hair.

    Personally, I have a fake with pepco and it works quite well 🙂

      I didn't know that Pepco also has invisibobble fakes! I have to check them out when I'm shopping, thanks for the info :)

    Thanks for this post. I have both originals and counterfeits from H&M and I will honestly tell you that the best for sleeping are from H&M because they are simply soft and sleep comfortably. The originals are hard and only suitable for a tall bob / for the night or for the whole day.

      Thanks for the comparison. I like those from H&M a lot, but it annoyed me that they lost their original form. Now they are like the beginning 🙂

    The original ones don't deform so much ... they just return to their shape themselves 🙂 But it's nice that you write about it because I have a few fakes in different colors so I'll try 🙂 Regards 🙂

      I don't have any original ones, so thanks for the info. These from H&M also come back, but after a month, unfortunately, they don't 🙁
