I just came across these Baby FX Rooting Needles, was wondering if anyone has tried them yet?


'

Looks almost like felting needles, but im guessing you can root 1, 2 or 3 follicles at a time?? Would be awesome if it came out good!!! whoohoo whoohoo whoohoo


They claim the needles are german micro rooting needles, best used for "sparse" rooting. IDK







Hugs,

Jenny

I bought the orange one and even heating the head with rice I couldn't figure out how to make it work. I am going to take them to Utah with me in July for the ROSE show and see if anyone there can give me hints in person.

Sounded like a HECK YEAH!!! moment to be able to do 3 hairs at a time. lol

Not for pro-rooters. They inject major pluggy hairs. The needles are fat and they pull in multiples. They are indeed felting needles, and I guess some folks who just like stuffing hairs to fill up a head would like them, but for those of us who micro-root, they're absolutely useless. You have no control over spacing and single-grabs. And directional rooting is impossible with them. tuttut Don't go there!

I have tried them and the 1 and 2 work great IF, and I have to stress IF you hold out only one hair to grab and you very good at your directional rooting. If you like to root, but putting out more than one hair and hoping your needing pulls just one, then these are NOT for you.

I like to use the #1, though, as I find it very comfortable to hold, and I can do just one hair at a time with it, if I am careful.

Hope that helps.

I tried and failed at the bare needle.. I need something a lot bigger to hold on to. Wish I could do it that way, sure would make things easier around the ears!!!

thankyou!
