I was a little concerned that since they’re rather heavy it might not hold well without teeth (my hair really likes to drop hair toys; I’ve lost so many because they just fall out and I don’t realize until it’s too late and they’re gone!).
    Thank you I was really curious. I used to drop hair sticks, too. The unknown metal ones from eBay (but I usually find them. I guess it's hard for other people to see metal on asphalt? They seem to fall out when I get out of a car) fell out a lot. I couldn't tell because I was using other things to hold up the bun. Now that I know about LHC Hair Toys (TM), they don't fall out without me knowing (because they're the only thing holding up my hair! It's so wonderful!).

    Thank you! I didn't know and was really curious. I guess you need teeth to hold...but then it'd be easier to slide something in with out teeth? *wanders off to look up Ficcare "Superclip"*

    I've had a number of my Ficcares change color. I have an extensive collection (close to 400 clips) and I've found that some of my ivory colored clips have turned pink. They aren't ugly, they just aren't Ivory. Ficcare replaced one of them for me after I sent them pictures, and the replaced clip has now turned pink as well.

    Annoying, they are expensive, so I didn't expect them to discolour.

    I finally, after wanting one for 12 years, bought an opal lotus ficcare maxima clip. I'm so excited for it to come in the mail! I got a large so it's probably too large for me right now but whatever, it's so exciting to have a ficcare after seeing all the beautiful clips in this thread over the years! That sale was perfect timing!

    I've been thinking about the sale...have any of you tried the mini-maximas? How good are them for holding up bangs etc.?

    Just bought a couple of large Ficcare Maximas during the Black Friday sale. Saved almost $30 and got FREE shipping! So excited. I needed another purple and a green. I'd been watching for them used, on a couple of sites, and they've wanted almost as much as new. Yikes.

    Last day for Ficcare 25% off. Had to get some of the new leopards they are my absolute favorites! They look a little different than the old ones can’t wait to see and compare! Looks like the black, white and gold ones are already sold out.

    Ooh please post pictures when you get them. I was wondering about them, too.
