Hey you, the 90s called and they want their hair accessory back. If you’re anything like us, you’re on a scrunchie craze phase and quite frankly, we don’t blame you. Scrunchies have become a bit of a lockdown lifeline. There is something about having your hair out of the way when you’re home. In fact a lot of us just like hair away from the face in general.
Some of us love the look of them for an extra sprinkle of humble glam. You’ve seen celebs rock them on red carpets and public appearances (when they were a thing, remember those? Oh, Covid!): like Hailey Bieber at the Met Gala, Lizzo’s bedazzled one on the VMA’s, even Jason Momoa couldn’t resist the power of these magical scrunchies on his wrist at Oscars 19’. In fact, we’ve recently spotted Blackpink’s very own Lisa, sporting a very fancy one, with an equally as fancy price tag – the Hermes Claudia maxi hair tie, and we just… *insert heart eyes emoji*
Lockdown has also made us all obsessed with our hair and somehow, we are finding more time and budget to protect, nourish and grow our locks. What better opportunity to press reset and dip into a new hair journey. I mean, no one should be able to judge that awkward length hair phase via your Zoom calls, but if they do… silk scrunchie!
Why is silk good for your hair?
This might not be news to you, but to reiterate, silk scrunchies are hair kryptonite. They hold benefits that support your hair through your non-existing hair routines all the way through to the most complex ones (every hair texture has its own varied needs). The benefits of wearing silk scrunchies are extensive. Let’s start with the frizz.
The reason why silk is the best material for your hair accessories is that its natural, smooth texture has been found to improve the quality of hair. It prevents frizziness and reduces thinning, without forming split ends. They are known to keep your locks in optimal form by protecting hair from breakage as it causes less friction and tension on the hair, than other materials. They also help control tangling and leave your hair feeling super soft! Therefore serving as the perfect material for all hair types of hair but especially for hair that is dry and prone to breakage.
That’s where the silk scrunchie come in. Unlike the silk pillowcases and bonnets, silk ties and scrunchies can be worn all day long. Elastic hair ties can cause a lot of tension on the hair which can lead to splits and breakage down the hair shaft in the long run. Silk is the perfect alternative to keeping your hair tidy and away, day and night, while still looking shiny, fresh and drop dead cute!
