Reasons to Incorporate Scrunchies Into Your Wardrobe

We all love to wear things in our hair. For as long as hairstyles have existed, people have worn things in their hair, and with good reason. Not only are hair accessories great ways for people to express themselves and look the way they wish; they also allow people to keep their hair out of their faces, giving practical benefits. It's no wonder that Grand View Research reported that the global hair accessories marketed were valued at $17.4 billion as of 2020. With that being said, one type of hair accessory, in particular, reached incredible heights of popularity in the 90s: the scrunchie. However, scrunchies then dipped in popularity for a while, before rising again more recently.

If you haven't yet embraced the return of the scrunchie, you may not know where to begin with this accessory. Let's look into some of the reasons why you should consider scrunchies.

1. They're Practical

Like other types of hair accessories, scrunchies come with a level of practicality. They can keep your hair out of your face with ease, and they don't have to be flamboyant. While many scrunchies do come in bright colors, it's also easy to use an unobtrusive black scrunchie.

2. They're Better for Your Hair

The great thing about using a black scrunchie, or scrunchies of any other colors, is that they aren't as rough on your hair as alternatives. Thinner hair ties can easily get caught up in strands of hair. Additionally, clips can be rough on your hair as well, causing breakage. Scrunchies are flexible, while at the same time being soft. This allows you to manipulate your hair while at the same time avoiding breakage and tangling.

3. They Can Be Expressive

If you're more interested in colorful scrunchies, and find that a black scrunchie just isn't quite right for you, there are plenty of options available. Scrunchies come in virtually every shade under the sun, and many of them are currently being made with sports team colors, as well as other patterns that can reflect things that you like.

4. They're Harder to Lose

Thin hair ties and clips are easily lost, resulting in frustration and lost money. Thick, brightly-colored scrunchies are much easier to keep a hold of!

Don't dismiss scrunchies because they were trendy once. Give them a chance, and try them again!
