If you have thick hair, congratulations, you've basically won the hair lottery. Whether your strands are curly, coily, straight, wavy, or some combination, our hats are off to you. Your boundless locks are the envy of us all, though we do understand it doesn't come without its own challenges. Washing, styling, and finding hair tools that won't snap under pressure is an actual battle, and we're here to ease the burden just a bit with the TOCESS Big Hair Claw Clip that Amazon reviewers say is a wonder for thick hair.

If you'd never dream of taking on the banana clip trend and have seen firsthand what happens when you try to secure your luscious locks within the confines of your standard claw clip (hint: it isn't pretty) Amazon reviewers have found one hardworking accessory that might just be the exception to the no-clip rule for thick-haired gals. Each pack of TOCESS Big Hair Claw Clips comes with four clips in nude pink, khaki, olive green, and black. They're nonslip (a must for the fine-stranded, thick-haired among us) and feature metal springs with an extra wide open, so you can twist all your hair up and out of your face without requiring the use of your fingertips to shove in the overflow.

Reviewers credit the strong spring for keeping a tight but gentle hold on hair, while the clip shape and the soft matte texture provide a cushioned effect against the back of the head while wearing.

One reviewer wrote, "Love love LOVE these hair clips!!! I was worried at first because their height wasn't as much as my previous hair clip, but they surprisingly hold up my thick hair very well! They're covered in a smooth, rubbery type material that helps with gripping the hair and the spring is very strong to help hold it closed. With my previous hair clip, I could feel the teeth against my scalp, but with these clips it's like it's not even there, which is a WONDERFUL feeling!!!"

Here's to no more claw-clip related headaches—and keeping our hair right where we want it.
