Do you remember those terrible hair clips back in the days that never held the hair up for more then 30 minutes and do you remember how painful they were pressing on the scalp so your scalp felt numb at the end of the day when you took the hair clip off? I sure remember those hair clips and well, this Scunci No-slip Grip Octopus Clip is totally different. They are made with rubber inside so that when they are attached to the hair, the never slip and they can hold a lot of hair. I have long hair and it is very thick, so I have always has a problem with finding a hair clip that will actually hold my hair for a whole day. When these came on the market, I was doing the happy dance. The design is also something to do the happy dance for, because it is designed so that the claws meet and stays flat against the scalp, instead of the old design where the claws are digging into the scalp causing a lot of pain and the hair clip leaves a mark on the scalp that itches for a few days. Well, these hair clips are still around, they are all over the place but I never touch them, not since I found this one.
They have a low price so they are very affordable. Nice color too, and I hope they will make them in even more vibrant and fun colors.
