    I tried the CreaClip and I think it did a great job!

    I watched Youtube videos about how to use it first. I pulled all my hair over to the front of my head and combed and brushed it straight forward well. Then I clipped in the CreaClip and brought it down to the end of my hair watching the leveler as I brought it down. I took off about 1 inch, realizing that this method would give me a slight layer because the back hairs had started falling out of the clip as I brought it down.

    After this, I combed all my hair back again as straight as possible as if into a pony tail. Then I placed the CreaClip and slid it down until just the scraggly uneven ends stuck out. I snipped these off.

    When I was done, my hair looked completely and freshly dusted all over.

    I think I will never have another salon trim until I am well beyond my goal of MBL and I can afford to lose a hairstylist's 1 inch, which is really 2-3 inches.

    This looks awesome! Did you straighten your hair first really well or does it hold taught enough to work with curls? Where are the pics? The people need to know! :)

    I flat-ironed the NG and ran the iron quickly down large chunks of my hair, just so it wouldl comb through easily.

    sorry about the pictures. I am DC'ing now and when I am done I will try and post some pictures. I decided to clarify completely and DC with my staple...if it looks nice I will try and do a style that shows the nice fresh ends.

    Thanks for posting your review OP, and I'm glad you're pleased with your results. I recently bought one of these clips but haven't used it yet.

    OT: hairdrama, you are the reason why I bought the creaclip. I had never heard of it before, but when I saw your beautiful U-shaped hemline, I had to have it.

    I have been using mine about 6 months now. I cut some bangs, trim the crown for slight layers and the bottom for a even trim.

    I was torn between spending the money on big size of the SAA or this. This review has put me over the top to buy the CreaClip. I'm going to treat myself to one.

    EDITED: Is this an OK way to use the clip? Meaning, she sectioned her hair at the bottom and brought it to the front and then used the clip.

    Saw this on Shark Tank too and remembered seeing this thread years ago. The Sharks are way behind LHCF!
