Creaclip helps you cut your hair at home, the style you wish and the way you want J
The day Creaclip reached my home, my aunt wanted to try it badly and hence I helped her cut her hair.
Since it was my first time using the Creaclip and especially on others, I was little nervous and I had to do some homework by watching the video tutorials and other blog posts on how to cut the hair etc.
After gaining some reasonable amount of confidence, I dared to try my hands on Creaclip.
Honestly guys, this Creaclip is very user-friendly J It does look a little “mysterious” at first sight, but the handling is totally fun and easy J
|1. The comb, 2. The lock in open position which secures the hair tight, 3 & 4. The lock in closed position|
Since my aunt’s hair was quite wavy, I had to flat iron it before the haircut, what I later thought I could have done was to wet the hair a little and blow dry, comb it with wide tooth hair-comb which will actually straighten the hair a bit, this would just be fine for the hair-cut! Anyways it’s totally up to you on which way you choose to straighten it a bit before the haircut!
Few basic instructions before you cut the hair are,
- Use the Creaclip on clean, dry hair
- Comb out all the knots and tangles
- Use sharp hair cutting scissors
- Sit or Stand straight up before getting haircut
- The level is balanced when the bubble is between the two white lines
Okay, I first fixed a length approximately 4 inches, adjusted the Creaclip in the centre of the hair until it leveled up correctly, and then slid it to the desired 4 inches length.
Using a sharp cutting scissor, I used the Horizontal cuts method to cut the hair, this would actually give blunt ends to the hair (The vertical cut would give you a textured end)
The first time, I made a mistake, my aunt’s hair was quite thick and I had clipped the entire hair hence I had a tough time initially. Later I partitioned the hair in to two sections from ear to ear horizontally and worked on it, this time it was perfect J
So except for the first time mistake, it took me 20 mins to cut the hair, effortlessly J
There is a small clip that comes with the kit; it is good and handy for hair bangs. I didn’t get a chance to try it yet, but my Aunt has already taken it from me to use it on her daughter J
I gave her the small clip, just because I had won a Creaclip Pro and Creanails set in Pooja’s BBB giveaway JThe Creaclip Pro is nothing but the small clip that comes with the main kit. This is sold as a single piece as Creaclip Pro and it can be worked on bangs J
The Creanails is something which I can’t wait to try it on my nails; I will do a detailed review post later this month on the Creanails J
Creaclip – The Good:
- One time buy, worth the money and quite economical
- Cleaning is very easy, just a toothbrush and a shampoo is enough to clean the clips J
- Very handy, hence can be carried around easily (If required J)
- Easy to use, saves time and money, one clip can be used by the entire family J
Creaclip – The Bad:
- Can be bought only from their online site, though they ship worldwide, a visa/master card is required to buy it online
They can be bought online from the Creaproducts website, here!
Overall I had a wonderful experience with the clip and I am totally recommending it you guys J
