You probably remember the scrunchie as an old yet much-loved hair accessory from the nineties, albeit one you may have since ditched in favor of newer, more fashionable embellishments. Now, however, the scrunchie is making something of a comeback, and we think it's time to explain why that's a good thing. Scratch that, it's a great thing!
They're kind to your hair
Since tying your hair up with clouds of silk isn't really an option, a scrunchie is basically the next best thing. The excess of fabric that encases the elastic is gentle on your strands, preventing dents and roughed-up cuticles, and both of these things can contribute to tangling and breakage.
They're simple yet effective
Scrunchies are bigger than your average hair tie and thus can handle more hair. They are the heavyweights of elasticated hair support and they can keep a large messy bun piled on top of your head until the cows come home. They can also handle thick haired ponytails, braids and pigtails.
Styling tip - Create a disheveled texture by spraying your hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and teasing the roots before you put it up.
They're so, so much fun
Scrunchies come in all kinds of colors and textures, making it really easy to put a playful spin on your hairstyle. In fact, there's hardly any styling involved at all!
