Why Scrunchies Work Wonders for Thick Hair

  Photo by cottonbro studio on Pexels Thick hair comes with its fair share of challenges, especially when it's time to look for the right hair accessory that not only conforms to the width of the strands, but also maintains its durability. For those with luscious locks, the struggle to find a reliable and comfortable hair tie is real. Read on to discover why scrunchies are not just a fashion statement but a practical and effective solution for those with thick hair.  Gentle Hold One of the primary concerns for those with thick hair is the likeliness of damage and breakage caused by hair ties that are either too thin or too tight. Likewise, traditional elastics, such as the classic rubber band, can be incredibly harsh, leading to stress on the hair shaft and the possibility of extensive damage from pulling and tugging on the band. Scrunchies, with their soft and elastic fabric, provide a gentler hold. The larger surface area distributes the pressure more evenly, reducing the risk o

Hair scrunchies are staple accessories for all hair types. They are much better to use than traditional rubber bands that can cause breakage or even become entangled in the hair. The elastic portion (usually spandex) of the scrunchie is covered by a cloth material, mostly polyester or satin. These simple hair accessories can be worn on the wrist as well as the hair. Read on to find the answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Are Scrunchies Good for Hair?
Scrunchies are highly recommended for ponytail and bun styles. Because of the soft material that covers the elastic, a scrunchie is unlikely to cause any kind of breakage. You can even wear one of these easy-to-style accessories in a top bun and run errands as well as take a nap. What's important and unlike rubber bands, the scrunchie can be safely pulled from your hairstyle without experiencing any damage.

Can Scrunchies Get Wet?
Just like your clothing, scrunchies can get wet and even be washed. A simple rinse in the sink with a small portion of detergent is all that you need to maintain its cleanliness and keep it looking like new. If you opt to use an automatic washer, consider washing it in a cold, gentle cycle. 

Can You Wear a Scrunchie While Swimming?
As long as you've secured the scrunchie with at least two loops in your hair, you can go swimming. However, the salt water and other particles can cause it to get dirty. Afterwards, hand wash it or toss it into the automatic washer.

How Often Should You Wash Your Scrunchie?
The answer depends on how often you wear the scrunchie and whether your hair is clean. If you wear the same scrunchie daily, consider washing it once a week. If you have a collection of different colors and styles of these accessories, there's no need to wash them often, unless you've noticed a musty scent or stains. 

What Happens When the Elastic Decreases?
Sometimes, as a result of constant pulling of the scrunchie, the elastic may decrease overtime. Of course, you may not see this happen for several years after using one particular scrunchie. This is normal, but in spite of the setback, you can always replace any scrunchies that are too worn out. These types of hair accessories are inexpensive. Maintaining a large collection of them is often what many people do.
