: A clipping tip
Here's the tip: Wait until your hair is 50% dry before clipping and then leave the clip in for about 30 minutes.
I don't know how I discovered this tip. I may even have read about it here, or seen it on Youtube.
I was never able to clip for height on top - I tried everything. The clips would just fall out of my hair and/or tangle. Then I tried waiting until my hair was at least 50% dry, grabbed a thick chunk of hair and clipped using tiny butterfly clips. The hair stayed in the clip! After 30 mins. I took out the clip and diffused a little more. I got height on top! Volume! Yippee!!!
I've been able to duplicate this effect 3 times so I know it isn't a fluke. I hope this helps someone. Please post back and let us know if it works for you.
2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
