    It sounds like a nice idea. Low manipulation is always a good choice. The clip ons should serve you well.
    Try not to use all capital letters when you post, just a friendly helpful tip.

    My rommie uses them & she advised me not to b/c they may break my hair...(she used to use them all the time, but now she rarely uses them).

    However, I know that some ladies on here use them successfully as a protective style. There are some old threads about clip-ins, if you get a chance to do a search....

    I use them and I have had no trouble. I use a track or two in the back to give fullness to my buns. As long as you moisturize the are where you clip really well, and don't put them in too tightly you should be OK.
