Whenever I am banding my mares mane I always seem to tear up my cuticles, Its not that I'm concerned with they way they look. It just becomes painful when I start to see blood and torn cuticle skin LOL!
Anyone else ever have this problem? Any tips?
Makes banding really hard towards the end and I want to do a better job.
Not sure if this is a good place to ask, But Thanks for any help!

Maybe it would help to wear some really thin gloves? Just a thought, but I've never banded a mane in my life, hah

I've never had or heard of this problem 8\ I would hate to say it, but band more so your skin toughens up. Maybe use some lotion before? ... Are you using those awful plastic-y bands? I can imagine the bands I use tearing up fingers.
