Tool Review: Spin Pins
Well, my recent rollerset started out with more texture than I am used to compared to a blowout. Then by day 4, my stubborn hair in the back of head had become a texturized afro. So I grabbed a human hair drawstring ponytail with a butterfly clip fed through the drawstring net for today. I was able to secure my own hair into a miniature ponytail and anchor it with bobby pins. Then I snapped on the butterfly clip human hair ponytail onto my real ponytail. Toward the end of the day, I finally purchased a spin pin pack for dark hair from the Target store. As soon as I could tame my drawstring ponytail into a big pin curl then I twisted one spin pin from the bottom up into my oversize pincurl. The spin pin seems to just lock itself in place. One end is closed off and the other end is open. You have to twist the spin pin the opposite way to unwind it out of the hair.
Overall, I love this new tool. I think it may be nice to get four of them for the four quadrant bantu knots sleeping regimen. Please see my separate article about nighttime bantu knots. The bun that these spin pins create are secure and beautiful. They are lightweight. They come in colors mainly for dark hair and for light hair. I do not see living without them now that I have tried them! I am literally hooked!
