    I misunderstood. Mine is the exact opposite.
    Yes! I also expected the opposite reaction when I started taking care of my waves properly.

    Why do people choose Amish pins over bobby pins? Do they even compare as far as holding ability?

    I've heard that henna is very good for the hair! It conditions the hair leaving it looking shiny!

    Wow! I bet it does. My mom used it on her hair a month ago, and it left her hair shiny too! She used the black indigo mixed with the amla powder. Now, that's what really gives it the shine (The amla powder).

    For me they can can hold more hair, and my hair is thick and slippery. I prefer a wider pin for buns, it does hold better. Bobby pins are great for pinning up braids though.

    To me they are very different. Like comparing a hammer with a screwdriver.
    Amish pins hold big bulks of hair, even supporting a whole bun. Bobby pins held flat and smoothly small amounts of hair and are great for finishing touches.
    You can't use an amish pin for small strands, it needs a lot of hair to work. Vice versa, I don't think Bobby pins can hold a proper bun without bending, or snagging few hairs.

    Gosh, yes. Bobby pins hold like three hairs, so you have to use 70 of them just to hold up a bun. And then when you take them out, they rip your hair out with it.

    Whereas a regular hairpin will hold a lot more, or can be used similar to a mini hair fork, and slides out when removing.
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.

    I'm tempted to start calling milestones with partially stretched hair; I only wear it very curly for 1-2 days, then it's a looser pattern (and longer) until the next wash. So realistically, it's somewhere between curly and stretched length most of the time. But the length would vary too much...

    Does anyone else have the same dilemma?

    ears | shoulders | APL | SBL | waist (stretched)
    Prounouns: they/them only, please!
