I don’t know if you’ve tried these yet, but I picked up a pack last weekend and tried them today. You get two pins. You spin one in from the top and one in from the bottom, making sure not to interlock the two. The pins spun in and out of my hair like BUTTER!! I was surprised that they glided in so easily. What a great, quick way to get the hair off of the face and neck when it’s hot! I’ll be carrying a set of these around in my purse!
CN says: The Spin Pin sounds like an excellent addition to our Natural Hair Tools arsenal– especially since we’re talking protective styles! It seems to require low manipulation, and reduced tension and snagging (compared to traditional pins and pony tail holders).
