If you are male please tell the women in your life about this.

Be cautious of hair bands at open markets around the city too ? they are
probably from China since they are purchased in bulk very very cheap !!!!

Take a good look before buying hair bands in future ? specially like the
following kind?..

These Hair bands were made from used condoms and threads. That was so
disgusting, I would not want to use them!!

BEIJING (AFP) - Used condoms are being recycled into hair bands in
southern China threatening to spread sexually-transmittable diseases they
were originally meant to prevent, state media reported Tuesday

In the latest example of potentially harmful Chinese-made products,
rubber hair bands have been found in local markets and beauty salons in
Dongguan and Guangzhou cities in southern Guangdong province, China Daily
newspaper said.

'These cheap and colorful rubber bands and hair ties sell well ....
threatening the health of local people,' it said.
Despite being recycled, the hair bands could still contain bacteria and
viruses, it said.

'People could be infected with AIDS, (genital) warts or other diseases if
they hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while waving their
hair into plaits or buns,' the paper quoted a local dermatologist who
gave only his surname, Dong, as saying. A bag of ten of the recycled
bands sells for just 25 s en (three cents), much cheaper than others on
the market, accounting for their popularity, the paper said.

A government official was quoted as saying recycling condoms was illegal.
China 's manufacturing industry has been repeatedly tarnished this year
by a string of scandals involving shoddy or dangerous goods made for both
domestic and foreign markets.

In response, it launched a public relations blitz this summer aimed at
playing up efforts to strengthen monitoring systems.
Check your kids hair bands and make sure they do not put them in their
mouth while trying to plait or tie their hair
