Ever since necklaces were invented (okay, maybe a little later), hair has been getting stuck in them. And as women know, it’s painful! Here are a few tips we found on eHow that may prove useful, if a favorite necklace of yours is yanking at your hair.
- Figure out where your hair keeps catching. Is there more hair around the clasp? Is the hair tightly wound around a whole two inch section? Finding out where your problem is can help you better address it.
Drip candle wax around the area of the necklace that keeps catching hair. Candle wax is very helpful on many metals, including gold and silver, and is tarnish-free. You will have to repeat this every month or so on a necklace you wear often–it’s not a permanent solution.
Slide some clear canister tubing (for aquariums) on the necklace. It’s unsightly, but it works. To achieve the same results without altering the look of the necklace, you can wrap the area that catches hair with clear tape several times. Make sure none of the sticky part is exposed or your hair will still catch (possibly worse than before).
Don’t wear the chain at all times. Often, sleeping or swimming in a necklace can cause it to catch hair.
