Has anyone tried the roller jaw clamps from Curly Hair Solutions? Do they work? Are they worth the money? Thanks, Mary

    I use them and like them. I find them really good in dry hair to give it some lift - if my hair is a bit flat I'll pop some in and then by the time I'm going out they have lifted my hair. If you are in the US I think sally's has something similar for a lot cheaper (I'm in the UK). HTH

    Omgosh I love the roller jaw clamps. I don't use them on really wet hair, I'll put them around my crown when my hair is 70-90% dry so I get good lift. Much better than duckbill clips imo.

    The only ones that I could find at Sally's online are flat/straight across the bottom. I want the ones like CHS' that have comb like bottoms.

    I'd LOVE to find some on the ground like CHS' so will watch this post closely.

    Anyone know where else to purchase these besides frizz off.com? It's not worth it for me to purchase just the clamps from there. I just ordered another liter Of CK from aveyou.com (better deal), but they don't carry the clamps :(. I would really like a set of these. The clamps at Sally's are not the same....so still looking.
  • LeanneMLeanneM Posts: 211Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    I bought a set that looked similar to the Frizzoff ones at either Sally's or Ulta, and they weren't working at all for me. I finally broke down and bought the Frizzoff ones, and they're definitely worth it! I have fine, 2C waves, but I can use them to really boost up the volume on the top of my head. They're worth the splurge!

    Would "octopus"-type jaw clips work similarly? Anyone tried the octopus-type clips and didn't like the outcome, so you think these might work better?

    Maybe I can split a bag with someone?

    I was wondering the same thing. These looked good, and they're cheap enough that it's not a risk.I like the curves on the teeth, which seem like they'd encourage curl.

    In my quest to find something similar to the Frizzoff ones, I've tried those Scunci ones (both that smaller size and the larger octopus ones), as well as some that seemed like they'd be the same thing. (The irony, of course, is that I spent all that money because I was trying to save money and not get the Frizzoff ones!) The Frizzoff ones really are better; there is something about the spring on them that gives just the right amount of pressure to create "umph" and spring to your hair/roots.

    I found two ways that seem to work best for me as far as using them. The first is to diffuse part-way, then add them to my roots as I let my hair air-dry the rest of the way. The second is on second- and third-day hair; I add them to my roots for about ten minutes after I shower and while doing my makeup, and they lift my roots. I like them so much better than clipping the Deva way!

    I've also tried rolling up my hair in them like Jonathan does on the video, but that hasn't worked for my waves.

    Sorry to be an enabler, but they really have worked well for me!;-)

    Those are the exact octopus clips that I have. When I used them for root lift, I used the mini-sized ones. They did a decent job. My concern is that since I have thin/fine hair at the roots, a larger clip would have a lot of empty space in it if I used one for that purpose.

    Thanks so much for sharing your hard-earned wisdom, and saving me money and frustration! If it wasn't for that %*&# shipping charge, the Frizzoff ones wouldn't be unreasonable. No reason they should cost $8 to ship.

    OK, Spiralli, you're on! Drop me a PM to arrange the transaction, and then I'll order them :)

    I know -- the shipping is so overpriced on these! If you can split a package, though, it sort helps with the cost!

    I just got 6 of these, and I think they're good! I wrapped all my wet hair in them, put on the bonnet dryer, and sat under for half an hour or so. The curls I got weren't as clumped/nice as when I plop and air dry, but they were nice and bouncy, if a little more separated -- perfectly fine, and a good solution for the cold weather.

    I've used both the octopus clamps and the CHS clamps and I just had better results with the CHS ones. When using the octopus clamps, my hair would curl around the handles and make it VERY tough to remove without getting caught and causing frizz. I broke down and purchased the ones from CHS and they work much better for me. More lift and no tangling.

    I ordered the CHS roller jaw clamps and just got them this weekend. I tried them yesterday on wet hair right after putting in my gel. I diffused my hair with the clamps around the crown of my head and when I took them out....my hair was straighter where I put the clamps, not curly, and I had no lift at all! I am sure I used them wrong so tonight I am going to try it again and maybe wait until my hair is at least 50% dry then put the clamps in. We will see!

    They work a lot better for me on dry hair when I'm going for second-day hair. I never use them on wet hair for the same reason, but on second- and third-day hair, they take care of all the flatness. I love them for that! :sunny:
