Let me tell you a bit about my hair routine. Every morning I tie it up into a bun or a high ponytail. As my hair is growing out I pin the short bits in place with a fistful of bobby pins then use half a can of spray to hold it in place. I have shiny soft hair, and as lovely as that sounds, it makes for a heck of a time getting bobby pins to hold tight. When I go to bed I have a helmet of sprayed hair to contend with, to brush out or scrub with buckets of shampoo. It's a tough time.

Bobby pins are like socks and pens - you can never find them when you want them, and when you don't want them they tend to breed in your bag. I ran out of them over the weekend and was stuck in town, on the way to the gym with nothing but a hair tie.

I stopped at the pharmacy and picked up a product I'd never seen before - Mita Active Super Hold Bobby Pins. I obviously wasn't alone in my hair struggle, because some genius had invented super grip bobby pins. Each one is powder-coated in a superfine rubbery texture - not rubbery like rubber bands that rip your hair out, but just rubbery enough to make for an immovable pin.

Four Super Grip bobby pins to my usual eight and I was able to run, squat and roll about the floor at the gym without a sniff of hairspray. There's a whopping 60 in the packet, so my hair dramas are over.

Mita Active Super Grip Bobby Pins come in brown, blonde and black, $8.99 from pharmacies.
