The Center for Disease Control and Prevention started to raise the issue about public safety when the hair bands made in China came to America`s market. They state that Chine is using used condoms, recycled, are being processed and sold into hair bands at the markets and the beauty salons.
The main concern is about the possibility of getting STDs, genital warts and even can be infected with AIDS.
These kinds of hair ties are being sold all over the country and they are easy and cheap to get. Here is the statement from the CDC in regards with this:
“ The CDC is sure that these hair ties and rubber bands which are made out of unsanitary condoms, has 4 times bigger amount of bacteria on it than those bacteria found in the public restroom toilet. The AIDS virus, warts, herpes and other STD venereal diseases are easy to get when the rubber band or hair ties end up in the mouth while setting their hair.”
Woman from Los Angeles was shocked when she realized that the hair band she bought was made from recycled condom.
She got the scissors and carefully cut around the edges. She saw the used condom and she lost words. She wanted to tell more people about this so that people would stop using them.
Look before you buy next time. If they are made in Chine they are a potential health hazard. Throw them immediately!
