Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnieMae LOVE these things
They're worlds better than either large or small metal bobby pins. I have below shoulder length naturally curly hair, and I use these things all sorts of ways. The tortoiseshell colored ones just disappear into my hair so that I can randomly stick them in however needed, and you can't even see them. They hold great. I can do a complete curly updo in just a moment with a few of them, a smooth traditional French twist on curly or straight hair with a few, or a half-up do with a single one. They're flexible, so they don't break easily, yet they hold well. I keep a dozen or so in the bottom of my purse at all times. I hope they're never discontinued! Scunci used to sell exactly the same thing under their brand, but I no longer see theirs in the stores.

I love the way the pins work. They are so much more comfortable than bobby pins and I can hold a section of hair with just one of these versus 3 bobby pins. These are also easier to use. I can never seem to install bobby pins correctly. They either lay on my scalp or they don't hold the hair where I want them.
But as some of the other reviewers have said, they are not durable if you have thick hair. I broke about 3 just trying it out the first time. I will use these up but won't repurchase. I will buy some durable hair forks instead.
I have two in now but at least one will probably be unusable when I take it out tonight.

I purchased these a week ago and was very excited about the concept of plastic hairpins. Metal hairpins irritate my scalp. Two have broken before I even arrived at work. I'm not using them to hold large amounts of hair or wearing a hat, the plastic is just not durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rozzie2003 Great alternative to metal bobby pins!
I happen to be allergic to nickel, which is manufactured in most metal products; bobby pins included. My skin and scalp suffer severe rashes and itching when coming into contact with metal bobby pins or jewelry. These plastic pins are a life-saver! They work great in holding my hair in place for a style. Or if I want to do a wash-n-go style and need to hold hair in place until it dries, these work just as well as the bobby pins. Sally Beauty, please continue to supply this product. I need it!
