“Velcro,” for your hair | Dariya Hair Pad review & giveaway

The product: Dariya Hair Pad (Magic Hair Pad dupe)

So – hair pads? A little strange. But at the same time, you kind of look at the pad and go “huh. Why hadn’t anyone thought of this sooner?

For those of you who haven’t heard of them before, hair pads (or “fringe holders”) are pieces of velcro-like material designed to keep your hair out of your face. It’s so simple, but for whatever reason, they just haven’t really taken off the way that hair elastics and headbands have!

Unlike elastic-based hair accessories, they don’t squish your hair to your head – so if you’ve, say, already curled your hair, they won’t wreck your curls. I use mine when I wash my face, but they can also be used for things like putting on your contacts or doing your makeup; anything that you’d need to hold your bangs or front layers back for, really.

The Dariya pads are $4.99 for a pack of two (reg $7.99) through, who were kind enough to send these in. Each piece is 6.5x10cm, and features little bristle-like hairs: unlike velcro, there aren’t hooks and loops, so they slide into and out of your hair with ease (but have just enough hold to stay in while you’re using them). I think they’re probably best for shorter layers or bangs, but they do a more than decent job in my long layers, too.

Win it

The Dariya pads aren’t too costly to begin with, but we do have a pack (in pink) to give away! You have until next Saturday at midnight to get your entries in, and we’ll contact the winner by email during the week of the 27th.

This giveaway is open internationally, and will be opened to comment entries in one week’s time. Good luck!

    These are amazing stuff! I have a set I bought from the Sasa store locally (its very cheap) and I use it every morning. At least it doesn't give me hairband hair and holds up my fringe perfectly. If it helps, here's a pic of mine :)

      • YOU'RE ON TWITTER! I did not know this!

        Tell me you use it. Please for the love of god TELL ME YOU USE IT SO I CAN FOLLOW YOU.

        *crazed ramblings*

          Awww Rae, you're so sweet! I don't really use twitter except to enter contests. I don't have a smart phone so I find there's no point to tweeting. Plus, I have a tough enough time checking my emails. :(

          I follow you though and I went to Rexall because of your heads-up tweet re: 50% off face cosmetics.
          I wanted to get the Marcelle translucent powder you recommended. Unfortunately, my Rexall doesn't carry the loose powder, only the pressed powder. Booo. On the topic of the translucent powder would you recommend I get the powder in "translucent" or "translucent medium"? I'm NC20/25. Thanks!

          • Go back and get it, girl!! I have the loose version too, and love it – for slightly different reasons.

            Obviously, the loose powder is more cost effective ($70g for under $15), but with the 50% off sale, I'd probably actually recommend the pressed ;) It's so much more transportable, and it's a different formula (which is why I find it's worth having both of them around).

            The loose powder goes on and really is translucent , but the pressed just has a teensy bit more coverage. The finish is more matte, and might need a bit more buffing in, but sort of "smooths" everything over, if that makes sense? It's sort of like wearing a satin-matte sheer tinted moisturizer: there's no actual coverage, but because the finish is just spot-on, it makes your skin look just a bit more flawless.

            asdlkfjgh I need to get my ass in gear and REVIEW the damn thing instead of continuing to write comment-essays about it >.<

            ah haa haa haa.:D
            Yeah, write a review! I don't know if I'll have time to go to Rexall's this week, but I'll try try try.
            I'm doing a practicum right now and the commute is crazy. bleaghghghhhh.
            How are things for you? How many more year(s) do you have to go with your degree?

          • Ugh like a million! >.< I'm not taking a full course load because of my health stuff, so I honestly have no idea how long I'm going to be in school for. What are you doing your practicum for?

            (I hope you can find time to make it to Rexall tomorrow! If not, well, there's always next time :p)
