Default Using Silicone

I just started to use silicone, I just have one question though. I always fully line my alligator clips, should I line both top and bottom with silicone?

I have put it on top and bottom but find if it sits for a bit it will stick together. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or not.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

No, you aren't doing anything wrong. That is the unfortunate nature of silicone as a no slip grip. I used to love silicone until I realized it stuck and pulled off the ribbon if left sitting for any length of time. I switched to the furry side of velcro and love it. I buy it with adhesive on the roll and cut whatever sliver I need for clips. Hth!

Thanks for the tip!

Do you feel it is just as effective?

My customers who loved the silicone have never complained. But I think I will ask them! No matter, I can't ever use the silicone again. I would see it rip right off the ribbon if I opened a clip that was sitting for a bit. I couldn't risk that happening with a customer so I had to switch.

Oh ya for sure. Let me know what they say. I have been meaning to ask what everyone's favorite way of adding no slip is, but I just haven't gotten around to it. Great tip. I really appreciate it.

Don't you find that the velcro is too thick? Do you put it on top and bottom?

No, not at all. The fuzziness is what melds to the hair and helps hold it I think. I have attached a few pics.

I use silicone, and have been for a couple of years. I still have clips for my daughter that I made forever ago, that have not had any problems at all.

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.
