It's not too often that I can say I am very excited about a new product. But that's exactly how I feel, after giving CreaClip a try, this past weekend.
If you are tired of shelling out hundreds of dollars every year on haircuts and trims for you and for your family, CreaClip can provide a welcome $$$ break and not at the expense of getting a good haircut either.
I wanted to give this product a try by having someone who has NO haircutting experience to test it out. My husband Joe was perfect for this hair experiment! Not only does he lack any kind of haircutting training, the whole idea of cutting hair BEFORE trying CreaClip, scared him silly! Now he wants to open his own salon LOL. He actually said it was fun. And it took out all the guesswork when it came to cutting hair.
On the other hand, I do have training as a hair stylist from years ago and still cut hair for friends and family now. But I know for anyone without that kind of training, cutting hair can be a daunting task. And definitely with unpredictable (and yes sometimes really bad) results.
Enter CreaClip. Talk about an innovative product.
I won't go into all the details of how CreaClip was developed as they have a very informative website that not only explains how CreaClip works but includes numerous how-to videos that are very helpful for all types of haircuts you might want to try.
The only thing that I noted there that I didn't agree with was allowing for a couple of inches of shrinkage when placing the clip on someone's hair. As CreaClip is used on dry hair, that's not really a concern in my opinion. But I do agree with the advice that when in doubt, cut less. You can always cut again if need be.
Here's my own experience with CreaClip shared in photos:
My oh so neglected hair, overdue for a trim.
The larger CreaClip in place, ready for the big snip!
Over 3" of frizzy ends, gone!
I sectioned off my front hair in ponytails.
On to the sides, ready to snip, using the smaller CreaClip.
We used the smaller clip on the sides as my hair is very thick and Joe didn't want to attempt any layering at the back. This variation worked great.
Each clip has a level in the center (how clever is that!) so that you can be assured of a even cut across. Gripper teeth hold the hair in place but don't pull on hair. Joe did suggest holding the large clip when cutting across, to insure it stays in place. This step may not be necessary with thinner hair though.
The "un-glam" (heh, Sunday is Bathrobe Day here) but definitely happy results!
The CreaClip kit comes complete with the large clip used for the back hair and smaller clip which is suitable for bangs and angle cuts on the side and printed instructions. As far as detailed instructions though, their website is really the place to go. You'll feel confident trying CreaClip after you check out the numerous videos there, I'm sure. And for less than the price of one haircut, you can order your CreaClip and say goodbye to expensive salon visits.
PS: And stay tuned for Part 2 of my hair transformation!
I'll be testing out and reviewing a new natural hair color product here soon.
Overall rating for this product: Excellent. 5 out of 5.
