You are a doll!!

Thanks so much for the video!! It was incredibly helpful!!

I don't have clips to use yet, so I tried taking smaller sections and pinning it up with bobby-pins. It worked fabulously! Also, I've found that if I leave in the pins while on my way to work and let the air blow a little bit stronger, it has incredible hold all day!!

Thanks again for sharing!

I really want to try this! I have those long duckbill clips that you have a grudge against. Might try those. That's a really good idea though...thanks for sharing with us!

I tried it, it didn't work well. I ended up with wonky hair sticking up in loops, the top of my head looked square like Frankenstein or something. I had clipped mostly the top, a little of the sides. My hair stays in whatever shape it dries in, hence the funny loops and squarish top. It was hard to get the hang of clipping the whole loop, my hair clumps so much that it was hard to separate curls for loops. Oh well. Maybe I'll try again some time just for fun.

I tried too - my hair is too short right now for clipping apparently.

oh no! i'm sorry! what works for one curly doesn't always work for another (story of nc.com, right??). CurliLocks- you might try take the clips out sooner, so that it dries with the general height but doesn't dry in the shape of the loop.

I'll try that next time. I watched the video again, maybe I need to clip further down, bigger loops, and take it out sooner. Thanks!

You're right, not everything works for all curlies. Don't feel bad. Plopping never worked for me either, or full CG.

Thank you for posting those videos! My roots tend to be very full at the front, so I'm going to try just clipping the back... It doesn't look like my hair will get as tangled with that method as others I've tried.

This worked GREAT for me the second time I tried it! The first time I went a little haywire, there was something about capturing all those little loops of hair, I think I used 12 clips. It ended up looking crazy, so I had to wear a wide headband that day to smoosh everything back down!

The second time I tried, I used my normal amount of clips, 4-5, and it worked so well.

Thanks again Shellynot!!

The first day I tried the Shellynot clipping method, I had great results. Wonderful volume on top and only a couple of weird areas I was able to smooth out with some product - and the volume lasted all day. Well, all week I have tried to recreate the fab results but, sadly I have failed miserably. I haven't changed products or anything else and can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

My hair gets to a point where I think I can't grow it anymore because the ends just seem to thin out. I fear layers would make this worse...or maybe the opposite - perhaps give the illusion of volume.
kcurls, when my hair gets 2 long it also seems 2 thin out. i got a haircut last summer and asked for long layers with some shorter ones on top (comparable to what shellynot has), and i walked out with a mullet. it was awful. if u are thinking about layers i would say to ask for long layers, just 2 b safe. i spent 2 months tying my hair back until it grew out.

its so odd to read about successes and failures, not just with my clipping method, but with everything! i guess there really can't be one universal way to style curly hair. If only!

Mysteryflavored-waiting patiently!!

I don't know what I am doing wrong but the clips do not want to stay where I put them.
