This is one of my favorite hair barrettes. I like the fact that it gets my hair up fast while driving or when I'm in the kitchen. What I don't like is my hair won't stay in the darned thing. I have very straight hair and within minutes I have the barrette still attached to my head, but my hair is out of it and back down my back.
Our Maker Space was having an Instructables Sugru event so I brought my little clip to see what I could do to make it better.
Step 1: Gather the Supplies
The supplies for this were really simple.
- Hair Barrette
- Packet of Sugru
- Baby Wipes (we found these worked better than paper towels or soapy water)
Step 2: Follow the Directions on the Package
As the package said I opened it, pinched off little balls of the stuff and then rolled it on the table to make little snakes.
Step 3: Apply Sugru
I took the little snakes and applied them to the inside of the barrette.
Step 4: Done
I then put it down and left it for 24 hours - Honestly that was the hardest part. I wanted to keep playing with it - it's very much like play dough or clay.
