Please note: The character of wooden beads vary from bead to bead. Holes will not be buffed/smooth as other bead materials, and may require reaming. If you desire smooth holes, or ones which do not require reaming, please refrain from purchasing wooden hair beads and/or collections.
Wooden Hair Beads
Scissors (narrow blades)
1. Fully extend scissors open
2. Insert blade into bead hole just before the point of snugness
3. Rotate bead so that blade scrapes the inner hole repeating until desired smoothness is reached
4. Flip bead and repeat for the other side
5. Dust debris from bead
When wearing painted or metal hair beads, water (especially with chlorine) can alter the finish. Woods can fade, and metals can tarnish.
Hair beads should be comfortable to wear. Wear proportions to your strands. If tension occurs, wear less beads!
I know. I know. I just said to avoid water, but hair care does out weigh bead care.
With that, adding moisture to your natural hair cuticles will lessen the friction when wearing wooden hair beads.
