What If My Hair Clips Don’t Fit?

Most of these clips are adjustable, while some of them aren’t. If, after purchasing your hair clips, you find out they don’t fit because they’re too big for your braid size, there’s a way out.

First off, check if they’re adjustable. If they are, apply pressure on both ends of the clip after securely placing it in the right position until it fits.

If they’re not adjustable, place it on your braid and slide up till you get to a point where it feels tight, then secure it in that position.

If you are still not satisfied with the steps above, or you feel like they might fall off at some point, you can try fastening the hair clip to your braids with the use of a thread. You can achieve this by using a needle to sew through the braids and link it with the hair clip.

When using this method, ensure that the thread you use is the same color as your braids to avoid it being so obvious.
