Title: Thick Hair Accessories
Post by brunette85 on Nov 5th, 2009 at 6:58pm
Hi everyone!

I am crurious as to the types of hair clips and things you use. My hair is super thick and the clips I have work but I need something that is a bit larger. So, I was wondering what you do to keep your thick hair up with hair accessories?

One of my absolute "can't live w/o" accessories are hair ties from Patrick Cameron.  http://www.patrick-cameron.com/accessories.html
I cannot make a pony tail or base without them!

Scunchi makes some claw clips for thick hair and they work really well.  They're the only claw clips that will hold all of my hair.

Of course, I can't say enough about Amish hair pins.  A must have.

All true what Sakina says!
The Amish pins are a must have.
Scunci's website has some claw and hair safe ponytail holders that are especially for thick hair.  Check it out.
Also Terri's site,www.tightlycurly.com she gives a plug for a website that has combs for thick ,long hair.  They are pricey(starting at $65USD),but she claims they are well worth the investment.
I'm going to hint to C I'd like one for Christmas ;)

Although I have a lot of hair, it's very fine, so not particularly "thick."  However, I just had to add something to CurlGirl64's comment about Scunci products. 

I absolutely love their "Hair Hosery" elastics.

They not only have no metal parts, but they have no "seam."  You know how the usual "no metal" elastics have that seam where the ends are sort of melted together?  They always come apart on me!

But these Scunci elastics have no seam and are so soft on my hair.  I love them and won't use anything else. 

They can be difficult to find (they don't carry them at Target but I usually can find them at a grocery store like Kroger or Albertsons) so I buy 2 or 3 packages at a time!

On that snunci link, look at "no slip grip"-those are the clips for thick hair!
