Elastic Hair Tie

Sin Ting LUI /Cindy

At first, when I was asked to repair something that is broken, I already decided to repair my hair elastic that is always broken. These things I would not repair usually, but I have a chance trying to repair one of them. Before repairing, I have to research and find out what material it is, then I can know hoe to repair. For my elastic, it is made by rubber, which material can be repaired by heat. Therefore, I hold two ends together and heat it by a lighter until it melts. The time it melts to a darker black colour, two ends and be joined together and hold it a while. Then it repaired to a brand new elastic.

Since this thing are tiny and easy and cheap to buy a new one, people would probably throw it away and never consider about repairing.
