    This must depend on your hair type and length. I have 3B hair (below BSL wet, below shoulders dry), which compresses down quite a bit from its naturally big state and my medium Ficci is a bit too big for most styles. The small ones are amazing, the spring feels delightfully strong, and they can hold an updo whether partial or full. And for curls it's better not to have teeth.

    So for your first ficcares, did you try them on in the store to see what sizes would work for your hair or did you just guess?

    I live in the boonies so there were no nearby stores that carried them, unfortunately. I tried to cross compare people on LHC with similar thickness who use ficcares.

    I just guessed because I ordered online. I'm still figuring out how I can use my Ls, but I know you want the clip to clamp tightly on the hair without the ends completely closing together. There's a big learning curve. I would try on in-store if you have the option!
