    Default Hair toys fall out due to lots of slip. Help!

    My hair has lots of slip, especially after a SMT. I love the way it feels, but neither a hair stick nor a fork will hold a bun for me. Any suggestions? I'm tempted to henna just to give them something to grab on to. I don't use cones.

    ps I usually use spin pins, though I'm not sure they hold real well right now either.

    I agree! But if you've thick/very long hair it can get a bit heavy and hurt your scalp (this happens to me if my hair is being extra slippery, the claw doesn't come off but it's pulling due to the slipperyness I guess?).

    If this happens, try to section them, and maybe use multiple and perhaps smaller claw clips. Good luck!

    My hair is very slippery. What kind of styles are you doing? I almost never wear an unbraided bun with a stick. Unless my hair is damp or braided, things tend to fall out.

    Yes, good question, AmaryllisRed. What kind of bun are you doing?
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Also how long is your hair? My ultraslick hair doesn't even hold solidly when damp, braided, and twisted -- and it's well past FTL. Until it reached classic I could guarantee having to rebun it several times a day no matter the style, hairtoy(s), or weather. Now I can sometimes go all day, but it took mine a LOT of length before it would reliably not slither out of its clips.

    As for claw clips, yes they do slide down and out. I almost always French braid from crown to ~ APL or so and then bun. The then hidden crosses behind give your clips something to anchor to and not pull down too far.

    Also not all sticks and forks are created equally with regard to how well they’ll hold.

    Right. I need sturdy forks with close-set prongs, the more the better (typically I use 5-prongs). I could never get skinny little metal forks with their skinny little prongs to hold, nor single sticks either.

    Wood forks hold better than acrylic. I recommend Jeter forks.

    I find that a braided bun will hold much better than any other type if I'm using a hair stick or fork. You could try that?
