If you’re a Sex And The City fan, you might recall Carrie declaring in an episode that no woman in Manhattan would be caught dead rocking a scrunchie. She might backtrack on that statement now! Scrunchies and other cute hair accessories are back in a big way, and are popping up all over social media.
Are you thinking its time to up your hair game with some cute accessories?! You’ll be happy to know that not only are scrunchies fun to add to your look, they’re also beneficial for your hair in comparison to normal hair elastics.
Choosing scrunchies over traditional elastics can have benefits for your hair's health. You can encounter damage if you wear your elastic hair tie really tightly around your ponytail / topknot, or the metal bar on it snags your hair when you’re taking it out. Girls with really fine or bleached, fragile hair should be especially wary of heavy or tight hair fasteners like this.
This is exactly why scrunchies are awesome in comparison! The fabric on the outside of the scrunchie means they’re much gentler on your locks and you also won’t get such a deep ‘ripple’ effect in your hair when you take your ponytail out.
Ever get a ‘too tight ponytail headche’ by the end of each day, release your ponytail, and feel so much relief?! If you’re wearing a scrunchie, your hair won’t be under so much strain and you’ll minimize your risk of strands ripping out at the same time.
Scrunchies are great for girls who are experiencing a lot of breakage, snapping, split ends or brittleness and are looking for new ways to reduce the likelihood of these problems from occurring. They are also perfect to sleep with, if you prefer to snooze with your hair up.
Hair scarves are also an amazing addition to any up-do. Having a boring hair day? Add an accessory to your look and it will make it so much more exciting.
