Hi Mokipono. Can you post the after pics? I think you do great work, show it off!!!!! Plus it would encourage women who visit HB who suffer from severe hair loss, letting them see that they have options.

Mokipono.. You are the BEST.. Thanks for the pics.. This helps a lot.. Help me understand.. It looks like two strand twists that are secured at the scalp with rubberbands.. Am I seeing this correctly??

Diva, This is for you......here's some pics ....the top pic is a banded track, the light spots are rubberbands. The top pic is not a cornrow but a different type of track.  If the hair is very fine and silky, or sparse I will use rubberbands combined with synthetic hair. If the hair is good strong curls, I won't use either, they aren't necessary.
The bottom pic is a cornrow track with bands, and synthetic hair. This client has very little hair so we used these tracks to sew on an integration piece.
It's the same as a cornrow, just every 2" inches the 3 strands are banded, and after banding they are split in half to make 2 strands, and the pick up along the track is the 3rd strand. And then back you go to 3 strands for your cornrow.

Believe it or not most rubberband breakage comes from not storing them in the refrigerator. This is very very very important, when working with elastic bands. Another reason could be the quality of the rubberbands. Dental rubberbands made for wearing with braces are very strong. They have to hold up through a lot of talking, and chewing, with plenty of elasticity, and have to be really small, and almost clear to be unnoticeable.  I order them right through a dental supply company. They told me they have all kinds of people requesting the bands along with dentists, mostly of them are for art projects. You can Google them by dental supplies, or elastic band. I've found the best ones are 5/16 of an inch.
Another reason bands don't hold up is if the person has oily hair. Although this is very rare if the proper bands are used.
Shirlyn is right, if done properly, it won't matter because with a braid and sew install the thread used to sew on the weft reinforces the track.

Oh yeah, I forgot to explain, well I don't install my rubberbands to tight. I do not wrap more then three times. I make a web, sew the pigtails down and wala,I'm done. I only do this when I don't feel like braiding my hair. Now as far as maintenance, I haven't had any rubberbands pop or come out, and even if they do, if a stylist knows how to interlock the rubberbands that come out shouldn't make a difference. The reason I don't wrap more than three times is because the hair will swell when wet, so I have to have some room for my hair to expand and not have any tension on it.

Well, that could be a factor. Are they really thin or thick rubberbands? Divavocals, I will post a pic as soon as I get one. I have not uploaded the pics on my computer.
