I can honestly appreciate Goody for always coming out with cool products! I remember seeing these Spin Pin(s) (why no 'S'?) in stores but I was dumbfounded as to how they were to be used initially. I would always go down the hair aisles and give them a good stare. So yeah..of course I was excited to try these out just as I have been with the other products from Influenster.
I love the idea of not having to use a whole bunch of pins. My hair is so thick that I've actually lost pins, only to find them a few days later buried in the mane. NO LIE! lol It took me a moment to get the hang of holding the hair in place and twisting the Spin Pin(s) into my bun. It's almost like turning a cork screw, just to give you an idea. I had to get used to the feeling of almost nothing being there. Alot of pins seemed to weigh the hair down, leave it too tight, or restrict it. The styles I attempted were very loose in certain areas. I actually need more pins to hold my hair in place neatly. I feel there needs to be at least 4 Spin Pin(s), especially the thickness of my hair and the price.
I think it wouldn't be as much of an issue if I was going to wear an unkempt-looking bun or hairstyle. Looser hairstyles have seemed to have become more and more popular over the years. But I prefer neater styles on most occasions. I personally didn't like having to restyle my hair every few minutes because the some of the coils weren't secured. Maybe if I were to straighten my hair, it would be alot easier to style my hair with the Spin Pin(s). But since I don't plan on using heat on my hair anytime soon, I won't find out until much later. But overall, I think it's a pretty cool product.
