A LIGHTHEARTED discussion...

Since my last few discussions have been pretty serious, I decided to write a lighthearted one. I believe that this has also happened to many people. I was running my fingers through my hair, and realized that there was something stuck in it, but at first I wasn't sure what it was. Then, I realized that it was the candlewax from my tealight when I went to relight it. It is stuck to the wisps around my face, so I will have to cut them, which I didn't want to do, because now it will take even longer to grow back. I believe that many people have gotten things stuck in their hair, or have seen it happen to someone else, so I would be interested in hearing any stories and if there are any other ways to get the candlewax out of my hair, without cutting it.

I think the only thing that has ever got stuck in my hair was chewing gum. I was very yong at the time and I was blowing bubbles while out in the breeze. After the bubble burst the breeze blew it all over my face and hair and my mum had to cut the bits of hair off. It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the fact that we weren't allowed to have chewing gum, as my mum thought it was disgusting.

Yes, that sort of thing does seem to happen a lot. I believe the only time I had chewing gum stuck in my hair, was when a family member (probably my brother or sister), stuck it (purposely) in my hair. Other than that, I don't think I have ever gotten it stuck there. I do know that there are people who like to sleep chewing gum, but that is unsafe. I fear for their safety, not their hair.

Also, I think your mom had a very good point, I see a lot of people chewing gum at the most inopportune moments, like weddings, and so forth, really it is not polite, I don't know how it has become acceptable to do so.

Haha, how funny. No, I don't think there is any way to get it out. But once, when I was in the middle east. We had no electricity because the electricity went out. My sisters and a friend of ours wanted to play Monopoly, and it was night time, so I decided to light a few candles. Well, I put one on a little floor table and forgot all about it. So as I was placing my back towards that table so I could get on my side of the board, we began to smell some smoke. We all didn't know where it was coming from, but we knew something smelled like it was on fire. Then my friend saw my hair and she said, "your hair is smoking!" lol I freaked out. Luckily, it just got a few ends of my hair and we put it out easily. But I did have to cut my hair. So that's my candle story lol.

Well, I am glad that it was nothing serious, fires are a scary thing. Also, I guess I am not the only one who has been attacked by a candle, lol. Thanks for the response, and, glad you're OK.

You could try putting the strand of hair between 2 ice cubes. Or put tissue around it and warm it up with the curling iron in hopes that the wax will melt onto the tissue. I would not put the curling iron on hot! Just enought to make the wax melt.
