Invisibobbles fearless founder and inventor Sophie Trelles-Tvede is constantly asked “how strong are invisibobbles spiral hair ties? Having recently been asked about invisibobble’s durability, we decided to put our spiral hair tie to the test. Sophie, ready for any challenge, quickly thought up the best way to possibly test invisibobble’s strength. With a forklift, of course!
While in our warehouse and distribution center, Sophie grabbed a three pack of our Invisibobble Power spiral hair ties for this experiment. We chose our Power Magic Rainbow color for this experiment since we were all feeling so colorful that morning! Using a pallet with our fearless leader on it weighing a total of 176 lbs, we set up an industrial strength chain (safety first people) attached to three of our spiral hair rings. Our amazing logistics team helped us secure the chain to the pallet making sure all safety precautions were in place.
Sophie stepped on to the pallet ready for lift off! While she was standing on the forklift with our tiny three plastic spiral hair rings holding it all in place, Sophie was lifted almost half a foot off the ground floor. Amazingly, while moving and dancing around, the pallet remained safely off the floor with no signs of breakage or worry.
Once safely on the ground, we examined our invisibobble spiral hair ties. Instantly, once removed, they returned back to their natural out of the package shape. We found no signs of breakage or damage on any of the three invisibobble power hair ties. An amazing feat for such a small but powerful hair care accessory.
If invisibobble spiral hair rings can hold over 175 lbs, it can surely hold hair!
Do you find your invisibobble original, power or any of our spiral hair ties losing shape after heavy wear? No need to toss your beloved hair care accessory away! With invisibobble’s heat shrink technology, reshaping your favorite invisibobble product is simple.This quick and easy step by step guide will bring your invisibobble hair accessory back to its original form.
Get a heat safe ceramic bowl from the kitchen cabinet. A soup bowl or one that can sustain hot liquid temperatures is vital for this process. Boil one to two cups of hot water until it begins to steam. Once the water reaches boiling point or about 212 degrees fahrenheit, turn the stove off and safely (we make invisibobble pain free, this process should be as well), waiting a moment for bubbling to settle.
Place the water into your heat resistant cup or bowl. Then drop your favorite stretched out invisibobble hair care accessory and watch as it forms back into its original shape. Remember to be careful when removing your invisibobble from hot water. Wait for the water and bowl to cool down before removing your invisibobble. Once room temperature, simply remove it from the water and you're ready to style and restyle over and over again.
We get it, sometimes there's just no time to wait and watch water boil! The good news is there is a second option to get your Invisibobble hair accessory back into shape. Grab your trusty blow dryer (here is a good list of a few we like) and a pencil. Place your Invisibobble on a heat resistant surface such as a granite countertop or a wooden cutting board.
Once your spiral hair tie is safely in place, put the end of your pencil, pen or stick in the middle of your invisibobble to keep it from blowing away from you. Turn your dryer on the hottest setting for several seconds, aimed directly at your stretched out invisibobble.
Like magic, your invisibobble should return back to its original shape ready to provide hair care for many more wears!
