For the top of my head where my hair separates I use 4-6 small jaw clamps or ordinary, short hair clips Ė itís easier to get to the root with them.

It takes a bit of practice to find out whatís best for you, but itís fun. Sometimes I donít lift sections of my hair with my fingers but I grab my hair carefully with the clamps (they open really wide) and I try to grab as much as possible and lift it without squashing it.

I have really fine hair (but lots of it) and my hair at the top/back of my head tends to lose volume without using them. I use them every day.
Sometimes I use them on the top of my head as well, usually later after styling or if I got caught in the rain.

I would also use them to lift my hair later during the day Ė and for 2nd day hair. I was afraid they would start breaking after some time, so I ordered two sets. But Iíve used them for about three months now without any problem.

Hope it makes sense Ė English is not my first language.
Fingers crossed you'll get them soon

I think these clamps will be great - I've noticed since going CG, that my hair is very much curlier underneath but less curly on the top layers/canopy. I'm sure it is due to the different texture/porosity of hair - my top layers are more highlighted. I think these clamps could help with the curl on my top layers!

Your English is perfect, by the way!

Thanks :-)


I know exactly what you mean about the top layers... and I hope you'll find them helpful. Have you seen the jaw clamps video?
BTW I also section my hair with them when applying products.
