Hello Orchid Members.
I have an unusual problem (please don’t laugh). I am 71 years old
and my hair has turned a lovely combination of silver and the
original dark brown. I am a Caucasian person but I have dreadlocks
that are mostly over 38 inches long and there are 60 of them on my
head. I decided a few years ago to wind each of them with 24 gauge
round half-hard Argentium wire. I got some from Fire Mountain and
some from Rings and Things and after hundreds of dollars and hours
of work I was very happy with my hair and received many compliments.
Then this year I had an attack of dandruff and used a shampoo
recommended by my dermatologist. Big mistake as it contained sulfur
and my lovely wire turned black! I have been searching the web for a
solution but I just don’t think I can put my head in the oven and I
don’t dare try pickling it either. Does anyone have a suggestion
short of removing it all (the wire not my hair) and starting over
