Hi, I tried this because I read your thread awhile back and I really do think it works. (And I now look like a crazy person walking around with a pair of yellow kitchen gloves tucked into my purse! lol)
I thought the hair would stick to the rubber and pull out the clumps, but it doesn't seem to do anything like that.
My mom also mentioned this theory to her hairdresser and she tested one of her rubber gloves on her hair and said she could see it working (I don't think she actually DID it though).
