Stretching Bands??? How to..

Does anyone know a good way to stretch out the bands that we wear around our hair sometimes. I have one band that's perfect but the rest are new and tight and I want them to get stretched out so I can do puffs with them and I won't get headaches. Help!

    I've heard it can help to put a band around a shampoo bottle (or other cylinder of the size you want) and leave it there for a few days. I've never tried it, myself - my bands just stretch out on their own through normal use, because I have way too much hair!

    Good luck!

    Thats funny - I only like mine when they are new and tight and they stretch out WAY to fast, but I have lotsa hair.
