I purchased one of these clips about 6 years ago at an outdoor festival. Mine lasted about 5 years and I have been searching ever since and finally found them! Beautiful colors and they work wonderfully! I have fine hair and these are the best clips I have ever purchased. I bought 2 this time.
Purchased Africanbutterfly clips 15ish years ago at a fair and still use them! They are great! I was weary about the metal hair clips as I have purchased some fron other places (wal mart / Claire's). I could not be happier with the results of the original Africanbutterfly clips! I purchased the 11, 9 and 7 tine clips and there is not one that does not hold my medium length wavy hair to perfection. In this instance, you truly get what you pay for. I hope these metal clips last as long as the original clips I purchased in 2006 ish
