Summer Is Hot in Florida – And Hot in Arizona – Long Hair Needs a Jaw Clip – I’m Sending my Daughter in Florida Relief from the Heat in the Form of a Scunci Hair Clip – It’s on the Way Via U.S. Postal Service –

Hair Clip 4I was talking on the phone with my daughter when she told me that she was considering getting her hair cut short even though she prefers it long. She lives in Florida and doesn’t like her hair touching her neck and back during the hot summer weather.

Hair Clip 1Hair Clip 2I can relate to that. I wore my hair long most of my life, but I cut it short soon after moving to super HOT Arizona. It’s hotter here than Florida! My hair has grown long again, but this time, I’ve learned to wrap it in a knot in the back of my head, clipping it with my scunci jaw clip.

While in Texas my last scunci hair clip fell on the floor and broke. I looked for another one at Walmart, Target, and several drug stores. Nowhere could I find one! All the stores were carrying a different brand. I bought many hair clips trying to find one that would actually hold my hair in place without slipping, but they were all absolutely useless.

The Internet came through for me! I thought for sure I would find the scunci hair clip I needed on Amazon, but I did not at that time. They had scunci clips, but not the jaw clip. I finally found an online source. I bought several of them so I wouldn’t run out again. I have only two left that have not been  used. I’m sending one to my daughter. I hope it will solve her problem. Long hair in the hot sun is a bummer.

I see lots of hair clips used in the summertime. What is your experience with hair clips? I’d be fascinated to know.

    I live in Florida, and it is hot, hot, hot here! Temps hover in the 90’s most days, and it’s hot in the mornings through early evening. I wear my hair short. I couldn’t stand it any other way, as I am prone to hot-flash melt-downs even in the AC! The clip seems like a good solution for someone with long hair.

    • I like Florida and Arizona, but the temps here in AZ in the summertime rarely are in the 90’s. They soar past 90 to 105-107 and up on a regular basis. One day our backyard thermometer registered 125 degrees! The humidity is lower here, but that mitigating effect diminishes to nothing after the mercury climbs past 115 degrees. You would really be glad for short hair in Arizona. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. Blessings to you, Joyce…

    Haha, I have a scrunci that looks like a big spider. But then I cut my hair short and didn’t need it. I got mine at Walgreens. I’ll never give it up. It’s too cute. 🙂

    • I have one that looks like a spider, too. My hair is so slippery and fine that it wouldn’t stay in it even with the rubber backing on the inside. I thought it was adorable, too. I probably still have it somewhere. I can’t imagine tossing it out. I should give it to my daughter. Blessings to you, Elizabeth…
