Default Grippies and glue Vs tape?

Hello all,

I just wondered if anyone had used any 'grippy' type product for their mini clips and if so what you thought. My daughter has fine hair so I was contemplating trying something. My concern is that it pulls the hair if she tries to take them out without 'unclipping' the clip?. I have not been lining the bottom side of my alligator clips, thinking it would not slip as much?

Also do you prefer to glue or tape your ribbon to alligator clips? Some of the ribbon I have from the stores (Hobby Lobby) does not stay very straight, its not stiff, so when I glue it the ribbon sort of curves.

I use foam-ish cabinet liner to keep my clips from slipping. I can't say if it pulls or not when they pull them out but my daughter never complains about it. I'd be happy to throw a couple in an envelope and mail them to you to try if you like. It isn't expensive but it's a huge roll and if you don't like it you'd just be stuck with it lol send me a PM and LMK if you would like me to
