Default review-duck rug tape-hairspray-glue gun

I tried the duck hold-it rug tape and either i'm doing something wrong or it plain doesnt work as a no-slip grip. I partially lined the clips and attached it to the top underside....I tried starching and baking my bows and got okay results. However, when i tried the Aussie mega hairspray i got GREAT results!!!...I went out and bought a 40w glue gun and i'm getting much, much better adhesion than i was with my 10w!...Thanks to all of you that have answered the questions i've posted. I've learned several new ways of doing things. Thanks all!

What about the duck hold it tape doesn't work? I've been using it for over a year and it works perfectly for my dd's hair.

I have really thin hair so i tested the clips i lined w the Duck Hold-It tape and the clips slid right off! Should I be putting the tape on both the top and bottom of the clip? cause i just put it on the top underside...Any suggestions are very welcome!

Hmmm...No, I don't think you want to put it on top AND bottom. If you put it on the bottom, it will be hard to "insert" into your hair. My 7yo dd has really really thick hair and they work great. I also make clips for my friend's little girl who has very very fine hair and it works great on her hair too.

How wide/long are you cutting your strips? I cut mine 1/4" by 1".

You might want to check your clips. Sometimes I will get a clip or two that doesn't quite close right so the bottom of the clip and the foam aren't touching well. I find that if I bend them a little so that they are together they hold better. I've been using it for about 2 years now with great results. My 2 year old niece had super fine, barely there hair when she was little and they would stay put in her hair.

I have fine hair and road-tested the duck hold-it tape - it held my clippie in place all day (a first for me!). It also holds great for both of my daughers, 7 and 2. One has super heavy thick hair and the other has fine baby soft hair.
