Just FYI, I tried the criss-crossing technique and it didn't work for me. I got plenty of lift in the sides of my hair, but not enough in the top. Also the act of crossing wet hair destroys my weak curl pattern. Oh well back to the drawing board.

That is is best clipping I have ever been able to do. These are the 2 inch (??) jaw clips.

I have given up on any other implements.
