While silk scrunchies may cost more than normal scrunchies, it's worth it once you realize they can help you wake up to less frizzy and tangled hair. You already know that sleeping on silk pillowcases can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent hair from tangling, so why not take your hair-preserving efforts to another level with scrunchies? You'll want to trade in your tight, skinny black hair ties for these silk hair scrunchies from Slip, which come in a set of six, ranging from a black and white leopard design to gold, pink, black and multi-color packs.
Unlike traditional hair ties that can tug on your roots and lead to breakage, Slip's silk scrunchies are gentle and keep your hair in place without being too constricting. Made with the highest grade of mulberry silk, these scrunchies clock in at 22 momme (a measurement for silk). As a general rule, the higher the momme, the heavier the fabric. What's more, they're made with non-toxic dyes, so you can feel good about tying that top knot.
Nordstrom reviewers can't stop raving about them. One writes: "These are great for not tearing up your hair. I have dry, thin hair and the hair ties I used to use would break my hair. I will only be using these from now on and hopefully my hair will grow longer without breaking."
"I balked a bit at the price tag, but after using them for a few weeks, I can say it's worth it," says another. "They feel much more delicate on my hair but still hold it back, I know it's pricey for six hair ties, but I promise this is worth the investment!"
If these box sets aren't in your budget, consider these affordable silk and satin scrunchies from Amazon.
