Hairstick questions...

I just received a lovely pair of hairsticks from Fox. They are gorgeous, but I have a few questions about them. First of all, they are wood sticks with a covering of black enamel and i have heard that you cannot put wood sticks into wet hair. Is this true? If so, is there any way to waterproof the sticks? On a somewhat different note, is it safe to put wooden hair sticks into hair with oil in it (I use olive oil)?

Sorry about my tardy reply. But to get to your question - true, it's not recommended to secure wet hair with wooden sticks, but there's a factor I know nothing about, and that's the enamel. If we knew the chemical composition of the enamel, we could know if it makes the sticks waterproof or not. But to be on the safe side, I wouldn't use the sticks in wet hair.
However, wood likes oil, so there's no problem when it comes to securing oiled hair in a bun.

A propos materials you could use in wet hair - I have heard that dymondwood is waterproof. So are bone and metal, so you could try and find sticks from those materials and use them for holding up damp/wet hair.



Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic
Primary goal: thickening the ends

Hair journal:

- NW/SO on the scalp, with periodical length
washes (Alverde birke-salbei shampoo for the length)
- brushing, scritching, preening and massaging daily
- occasional S&D trims
- trimming the ends whenever they start looking funny
