Why do my daughter’s earrings keep falling out?
Friction holds the earring back to the post. During manufacturing the diameter of the post can increase or decrease how tight the earring back is. This friction can eventually get lost or reduced due to wear and tear, as the metal that provide the spring tension during use can eventually open up significantly, causing slippage.
Also, hair conditioner and body oils that accumulate on the earring post can increase slippage.
Something that you should realize is that friction-type earring backs are prone to falling off.

If your friction-type earring backs keep falling off, it is highly likely that the friction is gone, and you need to retighten the metal scrolls. Here are the steps to retighten the scrolls.
