Silk Scrunchies for Hair

Scrunchies are hair ties made from fabric covered elastic and used fasten hair of different lengths. Silk scrunchies when made from unadulterated real silk are a girls best friend ... although we've found a lot of men sport these too to fasten their man buns.

Scrunchies are no longer hair accessories for fashion but wearing them is essential for with hair that is long, thick, fine or not short and needs to be tied in a ponytail.

Hair scrunchies made of silk are all the rage in recent times and they continue to gain popularity in United Kingdom and around the world . If you are wondering the difference between regular hair ties and those made from mulberry silk this article will help you in your search.

Why you should invest in real silk scrunchies?

Regardless of your hair type, scrunchies help keep your hair tidy whether at home, gym or whilst walking in the park. And of course as the summer draws closer, it becomes a must-have accessory for those who want to wear their hair up.

By real silk we mean pure silk. Scrunchies made from pure silk have many benefits. They have been recommended by various hairstylists and experts due to their superior quality and that they can be used in many different hair styles without causing friction, creases, damage or loss of hair.  

5 Advantages of using Pure Silk Scrunchies

The best silk scrunchies are those made of the finest material Mulberry silk. Whether your hair is thin or thick you will find that the advantages of hair ties made from Mulberry silk outweigh those made from other material. Here are some advantages listed for silk hair ties:

1. Silk scrunchies are kind and gentle

Pure silk contains natural hair proteins, namely sericin, that nourish your hair. It does not dehydrate your hair by absorbing its moisture like cotton does and so keeps the hair evenly nourished.

Whether you have thick hair or thin hair the hair scrunchies made from silk are super soft with a firm grip and glide off effortlessly when you wish to undo your ponytail.

2. Silk scrunchies reduce hair breakage

While sleeping, your tresses tend to get tangled when using a regular elastic hairband. While removing the scrunchies often hair undergoes tugging and pulling that creates friction and can cause the strands to break.

Silk hair scrunchies are made from a thin long smooth fibre and are soft and gentle. They are chic and keep the hair smooth, manageable and reduces split ends or breakage.

3. Less kinks (more fun)

Silk being a soft and smooth material reduces friction, which can prevent knotting, creasing and other damage. And if you hate the kinks in your strands that are left when you take off your ponytail, silk helps minimize that too.

Say good bye to kinky curves and waves in your hair caused by regular hair ties. If you've style your hair at home or at the salon you'll find using silk scrunchies will help maintain the look of the blow dry longer.

4. Frizz reduction with silk scrunchies

Frizz is not a friend of well groomed hair.

Scrunchies made from satin or polyester may be cheaper but they create static which can result in more frizz and fly away hair. Pure silk on the other hand does not create any static energy and keeps your hair looking neater.

Satin scrunchies are often advertised as 'silky smooth' but do not have the natural properties of silk such as being hypoallergenic and thermoregulating (keeping your hair and skin that comes in contact with the silk at an optimum temperature). Scrunchies made from satin are cheaper in quality and price whereas silk scrunchies are super smooth and more luxurious.

5. Silk keeps hair hydrated

Silk scrunchies not only look chic because of their lustrous shine but they help maintain hydration.

Regular use of cotton scrunchies especially on fine hair can lead to the area that comes in contact with the fabric to get dull and dehydrated. Dehydrated hair is the main cause of its breakage.

Silk has anti-absorbent properties and keeps your hair hydrated by retaining it's natural moisture and keeping the hair strand strong and shiny.

Silk scrunchies not only look cute, but they also keep your hair healthier in the long run and therefore many hair stylists and hair care experts recommend products made from silk such as scrunchies and pillowcases.

Are silk scrunchies good for curly hair?

Silk scrunchies are ideal for curly hair as they are non absorbent (unlike linen or other fabrics) and keep the hairs natural moisture intact. If you are one to use 'leave-in' hair conditioner often, the scrunchie won't absorb the moisture or the conditioner.
