I’ve seen a number of Lilla Rose Flexi Clips highlighted on other blogs, and I’d been curious as to what made them special and what the benefit of being flexible was.
So I was happy when Elizabeth from Lilla Rose decided to become a sponsor of AOC and then sent me a Flexi Clip to try out and tell you guys about it.
You know what? I discovered that while they are literally flexible (as in, bendable), they are also flexible in the types of hair they work with.
I tried the clip at home where it was easy to play with and see how it worked with my hair, but then I took it along on our recent camping trip. You know – after you’ve spent a night and you’ve gotta do something with your hair without electricity, so it’s gotta be easy.
As you can see from the first photo collage, my hair is straight and I twisted it up and used the Flexi Clip to hold the twist while my son took the pictures. It was really easy to use and it looks pretty good for camping, doesn’t it?
I’m thinking way better than the haphazard pony-tail that I usually resort to.
So I found because the clips are bendable, they adjust to work with different styles pretty easily – but what about different hair types?
Some of you long time readers may remember that my daughter had hair similar to mine until she reached her teens. Now it’s thick and curly – pretty much the opposite of mine (thanks, Brian – as if our kids didn’t look enough like you…).
I had chosen a clip size that I hoped would work for both of us – but would it really be that flexible?
Wow. I had thought it would hold part of her hair like the photo on the left, and maybe all her hair in a pony-tail…but all of her hair in a thick twist? It did a great job, actually – and was comfortable according to my daughter. I asked if it felt secure and she replied,
“Yes. I mean, unless I were going to be doing some head-banging or something.”
Yeah, well. No head-banging, then.
Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of the clip and how many different ways you can use them. The clip I chose was actually a small clip, so they really are great for hair even thicker than my daughter’s as well as straight hair like mine.
And – Elizabeth, from Lilla Rose, is giving away a Flexi Clip to one lucky winner so you can try it out and see how truly flexible the clip is!
