Dariya Hair Pad from AJHairPad.com

If you are tired of using hair clips or hair bands to hold up your fringe/bangs when you apply skincare/put on makeup/wash your face, this fringe holder is something you’d love! 
This lightweight accessory has Velcro-like hooks that keep hair gently in place without grasping it firmly the way traditional hair accessories do. You will be amazed by how weightless this thin pad is – you can barely feel it on your head! Not only does it hold up your fringe without crimping or messing it up, it also allows you to keep your parting. 

  • Practically designed, suitable for both long fringe hair and short fringe hair
  • Easily used and portable tool
  • Ideal substitution for hair ribbon
  • Quickly fix the fringe hair without changing the user's hair style
  • Reusable and convenient for make-up, face-washing and the like
  • Two pieces hair fixer in one pack

I'm sure you have heard of those pads before as I keep seeing them on blogs! The Dariya Hair Pad is an innovative special velcro hair pad that hold your hair away in place when you do your makeup, wash your face, put on contact lenses, etc. It is very hot in Asia right now and other people are trying to bring it over too. I'm so glad I had the chance to try it out as this product is not available around here as far as I know!

I'll admit it - at first sight, I was very sceptical. I thought the pad looked super tacky and weird, but don't let this fool you! 

I recently cut my bangs again because I was bored of my super long fringe that did nothing but emphasize my super huge forehead but the thing with bangs - as pretty it can be - is that it quickly become annoying as it's always in the way when I apply my moisturizer or do my makeup. When I'm lounging around in the house, I got into the bad habit to simply tie my hair on the top of my head - not really pretty, but oh so convenient! However, this is not good for the hair because it tugs it and it can cause breakage - this is why the Dariya Hair Pad is so great!

Each pad measures 6.5 X 10 cm

It is extremely easy to use. Simply pat the pad on the portion of hair that you would like to keep up and your hair stays put immediately. No clipping, no pinning or wincing when removing clips and pins! I was amazed at how gentle it was on my hair compared to those awful clips and hair elastic. The hair pad glides on so smoothly when you remove it and it never tugs the hair!

Very classy, don't you think? =P

I have noticed that the Dariya Hair Pad works better if you use it on smaller sections of hair - if the sections are too big, the pad tends to slide down.

For me, the biggest bonus when using the Dariya Hair Pad is that it never marks your hair - you know, when you just perfectly straightened/styled your unruly bangs and you have to clip it away to do your makeup, and when you put it back in place, it's all messy again? Well this won't happen with this hair pad!

The Dariya Hair Pad is available in three colors (black, blue and pink) and it's currently on sale for only $4.99 at AJHairPad.com

  3. These look so handy!! And I'm sure they don't mark you hair.
    I use a horrible and super unsexy clip. I should trow it away really and get something decent like this.
