I have tried it in the past using clips that I purchased from Sally's and regular weaving thread. At first I used the nylon thread but the clips would start to loosen over time. Make sure you use a needle that has a head small enough to go through the holes in the clips. I bought weaving needles and when I tried to push the needle through the hole it wouldn't fit Angry so make sure yours is the right size. I only tried this method for a little while because I didn't like the feel of the clips on my hair and after a while it would start to feel sore where I had the clips so I had to keep moving them around on my head. I guess it takes some getting use to and if you are a person who wore clip on hair weaves then this should be no problem for you in terms of comfort.
