thanks for the tip i may just have to try that i am in the process of trying to decide which method i want to use on my premades on my custom i offer a choice but that would be another option for them to choose from!

To answer your question I only use silicone inside the top of partially lined clips, approximate exactly where the Velcro is on the pictures posted to show the Velcro.

what would you suggest for a fully lined clip? Should I still only do the top to prevent them from sticking?

I used to make my own with the silicone and it really became a drag to do. I loved the clean thin line on the ribbon but it definitely ripped off if the clip wasn't opened in a while. That happened on a bunch of clips and bows of mine. Then I heard others complaining and figured I had to switch.

this stuff is the best . . . and as a 2nd alternative, velvet ribbon also works well, but i think it's pricier.

they have a baby velcro that has fuzzies on both sides, but, again, it's pricier than the regular velcro.

I've never fully lined my clips, but if I were to, then I would still only put the silicone on the top,to prevent sticking and to make it easier to slip into the hair. Make sure the silicone is really dry before you put it onto your clip too.

I know! I test it by wearing clips in my hair and it holds really well. What I also love is that I buy it wholesale with the adhesive already on it and just cut strips when I need it.

What is baby velcro?? Is it made by the same company? I'd be interested in checking that out!

since i use it alot for babies, i thought it was called that! but it's actually "snag free" velcro . . . and the advantage is that it's one piece so you can use all of it/no waste. it's basically a combo of loops & fuzz.

but . . . when i was searching for it . . i saw this . . . clear velcro!
