    Default Hair elastics

    I'm looking for some hair elastics for my 2yr old DD. She has fine hair. We tried one of those little elastic bands (that you buy in about a pack of 50) but her hair got tangled with it when taking it out. Lots of the other hair bands I've seen are either way too big, or say 3+, and yes, my DD still puts lots of things in her mouth... Any recommendations?

    It’s hard when their hair is fine because nothing stays in for long.
    I used the old school ones with no metal that sort of look like they have silver thread in them. I’m pretty sure I found them at target in the girls clothing section. They are small. I think they also sell the terry type ones which I had too but they slip out faster.

    My daughter was chronic for putting things in her mouth at that age. I just watched her but usually if she pulled it out she threw it on the floor. She never tried to eat one.

    I’ve found that the little colourful ones from Kmart work best in DDs fine hair (she’s just turned 2) - about $4 for a pack of maybe 16? So when they don’t come home from childcare I’m not fussed either

    Maybe that’s where I got mine 😊 sounds kind of like what I had.

    Have you tried this type:

    I use a bigger version of these in my hair and they do stay in really well and don't snag.

    I’ve tried the Kmart ones for he first time today and it’s been in DD1 hair for 2 hours! This is a huge win, if she doesn’t pull it out for hurting its normally fallen out by now.

    My DD wears these. So far they’re the only type that doesn’t pull her hair and result in tears.
