Default Roller Jaw clips questions

Ok, so I did a search here, and I still dont know where to get them other than ordering them from CHS. Any alternatives? I have been to Walgreens and to CVS, and I cant find anything there that looks like them, partly because I dont know what size they are. Also: do they work? I just kind of got the technique of clipping the top horizontally as per the Deva method...are the roller clips better? how?

I've seen lots of them at Walgreens in many different sizes. Also, is there a Ricky's near you? They carry them.

I tried some. If your hair is very thick, they may work well for you. My hair is on the thinner side - they didn't work for me. I had various sizes, but they just wouldn't grab enough hair to hold up and kept falling over. When eventually they would grab a hunk of hair and stay put until it dried, it didn't look good when I took it out. I could see the claw marks.

There might be something on youtube that would demonstrate them for you and then you could get an idea of what size would work for you.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

Yea, I have had the impression that they need to be able to grab on to a LOT of hair...and you cant try them on in the drug store, so to speak..I'll make a trip to Sally's. No Ricky's here, but there are a lot of Walgreens. I was just there and left confused and empty handed.

If you mean to add volume to your roots you can try small claw or octopus clips. I have fine hair & the clips in the ouidad videos don't always work for me. I have curled up hair along my finger than clipped it to my head with a pretty claw clip to dry. Looks ok & you are walking around with sliver clips in your hair. Good luck!
2c fine waves
Loo-poo: Avalon, Andalou, As I Am - NO SULFATES!

wish I had more curls
Also looking for suggestions & help

Ok so I went to several walgreens - could not find. Went to Sally Beauty - and there were too many choices. Not only that, but I didnt know what size, kind, etc to purchase. So, I think I am going to break down and order them from CHS.
