These Silk Scrunchies Are What Your Hair Needs Right Now
Score style and hair-saving benefits with these “It” accessories.
The scrunchie has made a comeback—and we daresay it’s better than ever. A huge trend in the ‘80s and early ‘90s, these scrunched-up hair accessories are beloved far and wide, and particularly by women who hate the painful snag of elastics. Easily more comfortable than your basic hair ties, scrunchies are functional while also being fashionable, thanks to the endless array of colors and prints.
But while the variety has also improved over the years, there’s a certain type of scrunchie that’s a clear standout: the silk scrunchie. Wrapped and sewn with smooth, lustrous fabric, it can easily add a luxe touch to your ponytail or bun while also offering a slew of additional benefits for your hair.
The Silk Effect
Here’s a quick primer on silk: It’s a natural protein fiber that’s woven to produce the textiles we use for our clothes, beddings, and accessories. Boasting of a smooth, luxurious surface, it’s known to be one of the most expensive fabrics—and one of the most comfortable, too. That’s why it’s a prime choice for sleepwear.
But did you know that silk is beneficial for your hair, too? Its sleek and lustrous finish minimizes the friction against your locks, reducing the risk for tangles, breakage, and even split ends. The material doesn’t conduct electricity, too, so you don’t have to worry about hair static, a.k.a. one of the culprits behind your frizziness.

Silk also doesn’t soak up moisture, which means it won’t absorb hair’s natural oils or your hair care products (like your conditioner or leave-on treatment), keeping your locks well hydrated. This is especially helpful if your mane is extra prone to dryness or brittleness.
Lastly, when used on your scrunchies, silk reduces the snag and pull of the elastic band by providing a protective cushion for your hair, allowing you to enjoy worry-free hairstyling.
