Default Re: Lining clips...production line

Yeah, I cut the strips of ribbon, apply the silicone, then give it overnight to dry and throw them in a plastic bag to line clips as I go. I don't know exactly how long it takes to dry, but I have in a rush lined a clip after a couple hours and it seemed fine. A little clippie will stay in my daughter's hair ALL DAY with the silicone!!! The bigger bows will slip a little depending on how big they are, but I tend to do a small pony tail or something with those anyway. I'm seriously debating on ordering some silicone tape with these upcoming shows though... It would definately help time-wise!

I use the silicone, too, as I've found it works best in my daughter's uber-thin hair. I bought and tried some precut foam strips intended just for clips, but I found that after a couple of weeks the clip compressed the foam a bit, and they stopped working as well (ie, they started slipping out of my daughter's hair again).

I get my silicone from the bathroom hardware section at Walmart. Can't remember the brand name, but it's a clear, waterproof silicone. I think there are a few different brands, and I'm sure they work equally as well, but I do suggest you get clear and not white!

I thought that the silicone dried out after awhile?

Is that incorrect?
