Default What do you line your alligator clips with?

So they don't slip.

When I first starting making bows, I bought some no slip stuff from ebay or somewhere. It was the stuff you line your shelfs with. I didn't know what I was buying, I just read no slip grip for clips. I lined a few with it and I guess it works. But truthfully I have never had anyone ask me if I line my clips. So, I now have two bags of this stuff that I don't use.

i'm using duck's "hold it" carpet tape for most . . . but it didn't hold in dd's hair.

what works on her hair is velvet ribbon . . . and i may try the velcro to see which works best.

lol - she's not a baby/toddler and still the darn things will not stay in her hair! i may start blaming it on the hair conditioner she uses - lol!

I use duck carpet tape too. When I make them for my girls (who just turned 2 but didn't get much hair until 6mo ago so its still pretty fine) or others with fine hair I dont clean up the hot glue from the inside of the clip (that seeps through the cracks) as the glue gives extra traction. My friend puts a thin line of hot glue along the center of the inside ribbon. I've also heard of using silicone but never tried it. Everyone seems happy with the duck liner


edited to add: I've made newborn baby bows using only velcro on the back (no clip) and they hold really well to very little new hair so I would imagine putting velcro inside the clip (the rough side) would work too. I've never tried the velvet ribbon but I know personally I've put in a clip with glitter ribbon on it and it stayed put on me so I can imagine textured ribbons would work well too

My girls have straight, thin, super fine hair, and the Hold It is what works for us.

I just started using duck tape as well. I love it! Stays great in my daughters hair. Have had no problems with it staying all day, well other then her taking them out.
