Why Are Scrunchies Healthier for Your Hair?

Scrunchies have made a massive comeback in recent years and it’s not hard to see why. They’re cute, comfortable and incredibly versatile. They’re a must-have for your self-care kit when treating yourself to a Netflix and face mask evening, as well as being a functional fashion accessory that can brighten up any outfit. But why are scrunchies healthier for your hair? Read on to find out the benefits of switching to hair scrunchies now if you want longer, lustrous locks!


Scrunchies are considered healthier for your hair than traditional hair ties because they are less likely to cause damage to your hair. This is because scrunchies have a fabric cover that is gentle on your hair and scalp, while traditional hair elastics can cause hair breakage, damage and general discomfort. The fabric cover also helps to reduce friction, which can cause your hair to get tangled easily.

Additionally, scrunchies typically have a wider band, which distributes the tension of the hair tie more evenly across your hair. This helps to reduce the risk of hair breakage and damage. Another advantage of scrunchies is that they are more versatile than traditional hair elastics, they can be used to secure a ponytail, bun, braid or any hairstyle you like. You can even use them to create this heat-free curls hairstyle. Overall, scrunchies are considered a healthier option for your hair because they are gentle and less likely to damage your hair, cause you discomfort or pull on your strands. They also look better than standard hair ties and can be used to create a variety of stylish hairstyles.
