Queen Bee QT: How to Get Tangled Hair Out of a Necklace

Written by Angela Atkinson

Every time I turn around, I’m pulling my hair out of my necklaces. And I’m not going to lie to you–there have been a few times where I’ve just gone out and bought a new chain to replace one that just got too “hairy” to handle. But after learning this really simple trick, I realize how much money I’ve wasted. 

I probably should’ve already known this, but it never occurred to me. So after a quick Google search one particularly rushed afternoon, I discovered a few different options for getting tangled hair out of a necklace. 

Nair or other depilatory cream

I didn’t try the Nair because, honestly, I didn’t want to deal with the mess. But I’ve heard from several others that the stuff will take the hair out of any necklace in 6 minutes flat. 

Clippers, scissors, etc.

Several people advised going with the basics: scissors or toenail clippers used to clip the hair and then tug it out of the necklace with your fingers. Personally, I found this method to be one that would take too long and one that I was already finding fairly ineffective. 

Fire, fire, fire

Yes, it turns out that it’s all about the flames. A quick dip in the flame of a candle and a swipe of a clean, dry cloth and the necklace looked like brand new. Disclaimer: don’t try this at home unless you’re an adult over the age of 18 who understands that I cannot be responsible for any damage you may cause to your jewelry. This worked for me, and it may or may not work for you.
