My hair is like this as well - wavy roots and curls on the length. Clipping doesn't give me any more "root curl" than I would ordinarily have, but it does keep it from being plastered to the top of...

Update - the CHS roller jaw clamps are now promised in a local swap (thanks!).

Everything else is still available until July 15, at which point I will be getting rid of them one way or another!

I still need that hard hold even in summer. I guess that's the difference for me in terms of light vs. heavy conditioning, etc.
