Mom said:

Collin, who is three, poured the whole bucket over her head and she tried to shake them out and they immediately started to matte up like dreadlocks.

Nikunen plead for help on Instagram! Many people recommended using grease for taking them off. After 2 days, the mother could finally brush all the balls from her girl’s long locks.

It took six hands, 12 and a half hours, to get them out.

We had about 12 containers of coconut oil and vegetable oil and any hair oil you could think of.

The company had complaints about similar cases, which is why they released a video instruction of how to remove Bunchems from the hair.

All you need is hair conditioner, any vegetable oil, a brush and plenty of time.

Those fun toy balls have to be kept away from hair! Jasmine Nikunen confessed that her daughter, Scarlett, lost a lot of hair, despite their being lucky it was not necessary to have to cut it off.

The Bunchems manufacturers recommend tying the hair back while playing with them and warn against eating the balls or leaving them around house pets.
