My hair is BSL so I did use it to hold my hair up once conditioner was on so I could wash, etc without it all down my back. The clip is really strong, I actually just clipped it through then wrapped my hair a bit and pressed the length into the comb part, it stayed well, I only did it the once though. When my hair was longer I put it up every shower (wet) and started getting breakage so I'm afraid of doing it too often
