10 Best Silk Hair Scrunchies for Curly Hair

By Jacqueline Samaroo

Scrunchies are really cute hair accessories that can help bring many an outfit together. But, did you know scrunchies can also help to keep your hair healthy? Yes, they can – especially when they are made of silk!

That’s because silk hair scrunchies don’t have a drying effect on your hair. Silk won’t absorb oils and moisture from your hair like scrunchies made of most other types of material tend to do. Also, silk scrunchies made with a satin weave are extras smooth and soft. They don’t rough up your strands and lead to breakage.

Having a silk scrunchie for sleeping in is one of the ways you can protect your hair at night. And, because silk is so good to your strands, silk pillowcases and silk hair bonnets are also recommended.

Keep scrolling to see our pick of the best silk hair scrunchies for curly hair. They are all soft, strong, and super cute!
