I wore banana clips back in the day! When I saw something similar to this product, I searched and found this on Amazon. I love it! I have shoulder length fine, curly hair and it works wonderful! The older style really was tight fitting and I usually ended up with a headache. This type is easier on your hair and you can kind of loosen the grip by adjusting the fit, resulting in no headache! I have to admit one day I was in a hurry and put it on too tight, which resulted in the dreaded headache, but that was my fault. I plan on purchasing another, as back-up! It will be handy this summer in warm weather!
I've been searching everywhere for a banana-clip-style for curly hair. I wanted something that would hold my hair up but also give good cascading curls without ripping my hair out. I bought both sizes, and love them both. Buh-bye elastics that tear my hair! I. LOVE. THIS.
It keeps my hair back, but the curls stay presentable. It's great. With my nasty hair, I have to put the clip in, then wiggle it around and mess with it until it's actually "fastened", then I can pull hairs and whatnot until the front looks good. I really love this product and use it almost daily. I am really bad at everything to do with hair (I have not styled my hair in any way besides a ponytail in years) but I put this in pretty decently the first time. I'm now learning different ways to mess with it so I get the best look. This is a great product for dummies like me, because I definitely thought I wouldn't be able to do it but it's easy.
It's big enough to fit my fro in without the hair pulling and tears. This comb is a cute and convenient accessory because its easy to use. I had the honor of visiting the Hairzing office and this is a sample of what we shot with the stretch banana comb.
As soon as I got it in the mail I tried it out and got it in the first try. I have used the plastic banana clips in the past and my hair is thick and short so they wouldn’t close or I’d snap them. This one I didn’t have that issue super easy and secure went to work took a nap and took kids to practice with no issues. Pricey but worth it I love my hair up but it’s so short pony tails look ridiculous love this thing going to get a couple other colors. Ps sorry for the terrible closet pictures I wasn’t sure how else to get the pics of my hair.
