I have my guinea pig Chester laying down with me while I type this, and he keeps trying to eat my hair and chew on it, and when I push him away he tries to eat my necklace or my fingers. I don't like this haircut he's trying to give me, why is he doing this?
 
Guinea pigs chew. That's the reason he is doing it. If you want him to stop, just don't let him wander around by your hair. Sometimes guinea pigs will chew on or "barber" another pig's hair. Your pig might simply think your hair is some soft hay to chew on.

Yup. My Harmony is a hair addict, if it's anywhere near her she'll eat it. You can tie your hair up, or just keep it away from him.
