Hair Ties Made Of Condoms - Wonderful!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True


Isn't it annoying when you've stretched your only hair tie to its limits, snapping and sending it flying into someone's eye? And then you're shit out of luck and your hair is in your face all day?

Well what if that happened and you discovered your hair tie was made of a condom?!


Just such hair ties are on sale in some areas of southern China. They are bright and colorful and dirt cheap at 3 cents for a pack of 10.

Whether or not the condoms are factory reject or, even worse, used is unclear. But, consumers have unfurled the ties to discover them made of prophylactics. If they're discarded material found unfit for sale, then that means they're just crappy hair ties.

But if they're recycled used condoms then you could catch something!

    Actually, it's pretty smart. Condoms need to be completely flawless; a hair tie does not. Would you rather the condom rejects get dumped into landfills?

  12. 12

  13. 13

    um, ewwww!

    Cum on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok people, let's think about this logically. How could they be recycled used condoms? I mean, do they have a special recycle bin for them? Guys, when you snap that condom off after some (hopefully) badass sex, what do you do with them?

  16. 16

    You have already posted this mister

  17. 17

    And it conditions your hair to leave it feeling silky smooth!

    think about it perez, would you have ever put any condoms you used somewhere for them to be, uh, 'recycled'? this is obviously just flawed condoms being reused where rubber or latex would be used anyway. rather have a flawed, unused condom reused than have it a) in a landfill or b) used by someone when it would up the risk of disease or pregnancy. i think it's just smart business, and snopes covered this months ago.

  19. 19

    wow, People are more stupid than I thought… It's recycled latex, obviously people can't recycle used condoms!?!

  20. 20

    If they had spew dripping off of them, and you had an open sore on your head, you might get something.

  21. 21

    So, old…

    Slow news day?

  22. 22

    ive actually noticed a few people in my school that have used a condom for a hair tie. they ask the boys for them and cut/break the middle. i personally wouldnt want to do it, but i guess it beats having a mess of hair in your face all day..

  23. 23

    ollld newsss! even the article is dated almost a year ago!

  24. 24

    Perez, you can be pretty dumb. Do you have any idea what would go into recycling used condoms? The expenditure involved in gathering them, cleaning them, and then making the ties would outweigh the profits made from selling them. It seems much more likely that they're rejects from the condom factory, sold to another company that then makes the hair ties and sells them.

  25. 25

    They are supposedly factory rejects

  26. 26

    theyre sold in america too. im a bit grossed out hearing this cuz ive bought them before. ive used them. ive broken it. ive looked at the plastic part and said hmmm this feels like the way condoms feels. just wat i like to put in my hair. on the upiside to be honest theyre really good and dont snap easily.

    5 bucks says this is how Jamie Lynne claims she got pregnant again. Freak accident with a friend's broken hair clip from China.

  28. 28

    come on perezers

    i am sure during quality control checks at condom companies, they have to reject many to guarantee safety of the product. I doubt they're used! haha perhaps the rejects are melted and reformed into hair ties! big deal!

  29. 29

    OLD NEWS! If you look at the date this article is from Nov 2007, almost a year old! How did u find this now? This was also on Snopes months ago!

  30. 30

    this is probably the stupidest thing i've ever heard…
    it would take too much effort to collect and recycle condoms then make them into hair ties for the amount that they're selling it for.
    the company just used the same material as condoms to make the hair ties…

  31. 31

    they are obviously not used. do they make chinese people recycle their condoms now?

  32. 32

    That's actually kinda cool.

  33. 33

    Two words: OLD NEWS!

  34. 34

    But I do have a question? how are these companies obtaining used condoms?? Are they stalking the cars of teenagers and waiting for them to toss them out? I mean, seriously. Unless there are people who are digging through trashcans, I highly doubt this is true. Snopes or no snopes.

  35. 35

    LOL the Chinese are crazy fuckers. Every thing else they make isn't subjected to quality, safety, or health tests and standards. It wouldn't surprise me if they are using recycled condoms.

  36. 36


  37. 37

    thats nasty

  38. 38

    Re: fiones
    I agree. I can't believe how dumb some of Perez's readers are. Hair ties and condoms are made out of similar material so I don't see what the big deal is. And if some of you seriously think they are using used condoms to make the hair ties then you aren't working with a full deck of cards. Seriously, use some common sense.

  43. 43

    Getting so lame that you are putting up email forwards you get now? This is WAY old news.

  44. 44

    Used condoms would work very well for tying hair back because they are very stretchy. What's the big deal?

  45. 45

    OLD NEWS!! I got this in an email.. last year!

  46. 46

  56. 56

    Who's the twit that came up with this dandy invention? lol

  57. 57

    got this in the office email months ago

  58. 58

    A little late to the party, Perez. I got this chain email three weeks ago! Anyway, it was "confirmed" that the condoms were factory rejects.

  59. 59

    This is old, I read this MONTHS ago!

  60. 60

    That's seriously disgusting.
    And it's unsafe as well. They ARE used (check the article) and could be full of diseases.
    So to all of y'all saying that it's better than a landfill, that's completely untrue.

  61. 61

    well lets hope theyre not used condoms!

  62. 62

    you all are stupid! this is a great idea!

  63. 63

    i'm going to china next year during spring, so i find this fucking funny. lmao
    People in chinese class'll love to hear this hahaha
