roller jaw clamps

Like Tree3Likes

I was wondering the same thing. These looked good, and they're cheap enough that it's not a risk.I like the curves on the teeth, which seem like they'd encourage curl.

Anyone try something similar? TIA!

The Frizzoff ones really are better; there is something about the spring on them that gives just the right amount of pressure to create "umph" and spring to your hair/roots.

I found two ways that seem to work best for me as far as using them. The first is to diffuse part-way, then add them to my roots as I let my hair air-dry the rest of the way. The second is on second- and third-day hair; I add them to my roots for about ten minutes after I shower and while doing my makeup, and they lift my roots. I like them so much better than clipping the Deva way!

I've also tried rolling up my hair in them like Jonathan does on the video, but that hasn't worked for my waves.

Sorry to be an enabler, but they really have worked well for me!

Those are the exact octopus clips that I have. When I used them for root lift, I used the mini-sized ones. They did a decent job. My concern is that since I have thin/fine hair at the roots, a larger clip would have a lot of empty space in it if I used one for that purpose.

OK, Spiralli, you're on! Drop me a PM to arrange the transaction, and then I'll order them

i am such a sheep ... hangs head in shame ...

I just got 6 of these, and I think they're good! I wrapped all my wet hair in them, put on the bonnet dryer, and sat under for half an hour or so. The curls I got weren't as clumped/nice as when I plop and air dry, but they were nice and bouncy, if a little more separated -- perfectly fine, and a good solution for the cold weather.

Btw have u tried the product she used in the video? Curl keeper
I've used both the octopus clamps and the CHS clamps and I just had better results with the CHS ones. When using the octopus clamps, my hair would curl around the handles and make it VERY tough to remove without getting caught and causing frizz. I broke down and purchased the ones from CHS and they work much better for me. More lift and no tangling.

I ordered the CHS roller jaw clamps and just got them this weekend. I tried them yesterday on wet hair right after putting in my gel. I diffused my hair with the clamps around the crown of my head and when I took them out....my hair was straighter where I put the clamps, not curly, and I had no lift at all! I am sure I used them wrong so tonight I am going to try it again and maybe wait until my hair is at least 50% dry then put the clamps in. We will see!

Anyone in the UK can get Sibel brand roller jaw clamps from eBay for cheap. They work best for me after partial diffuser drying to prevent curl dropping.
I use the knock-offs of the Scunci ones - the knock-offs were only $2.99 for a 6-pack at Walgreens and they work GREAT for me. What I do is use them to refresh curls. I'll spritz hair with a bit of water, put some in for an hour or so, and voila - improved curls! Love 'em! I got a couple of Scunci ones to round the collection out to 8. No sense in spending more money if what one has that's cheap actually works. If it didn't work that would be a different matter LOL!
