    🤩 that sounds really cool! What type of coating do they put on the metal? Is it like ceramic coated? And then of course the follow up question to that is how smooth is it? Kitsch is the brand? I will definitely look into these Iím just curious from your experience about these questions.

    I have several Camila clips, some are over 5 years old. I used one of them nearly everyday for a year to hold a cinnabun and it's still going strong. Now that my hair is long enough for a LWB and forks I don't use them very often anymore. I've only purchased one Ficcare (used on eBay) but it was too large to hold my hair so I gave it to my DIL. As long as something holds and doesn't pull my hair out when I remove it I'm generally happy with it.

Some plastic clips have really strong springs that would crack the claws if you closed it too quickly.
    I have several Camilas, and twice I've had one snap out of my hands and fall to the tile floor. Neither broke. In my experience regardless of how a plastic clip falls, it will always break, at least on my floor. Plastic seems to be more brittle than acetate.
