- Avoid water
When wearing painted or metal hair beads, water (especially with chlorine) can alter the finish. Woods can fade, and metals can tarnish.
- Comfort Matters
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.
