Silk Scrunchies. What Are They And Why Do We Use Them?

“Scrunchie” is the universal term for the classic hair clipper/elastic. Yes, I recently learned this term from my daughter and my younger and more up-to-date patients with the news on social media. I like it when I discuss the news in dermatology and beauty with my daughter, “pro’s & con’s,” and this hair care segment is no exception.

Most patients complain of hair loss, brittle tips, dry and irritated scalp. The hair loses its shine and vitality, becoming dull and challenging to fix.

It is normal to lose about 100-150 hairs a day. What goes beyond this value can mean several pathologies in the dermatological sphere and not only among the best known being telogen effluvium and alopecia areata.

What is telogen effluvium?

Telogen effluvium is hair loss a few months after stressful events in our lives, postpartum, signs of malnutrition, and insufficient consumption of fruits and vegetables, disorders of the thyroid gland.

But another decisive factor and often forgotten or little known is the use of the classic hair elastic in the so-called “ponytail,” which leads to hair breakage and progressive damage.

Thus, after long research and articles, I concluded that yes, the general care measures also matter. To have healthy hair, we must eliminate everything that is too aggressive with it: from harsh, abrasive brushes to too tight elastics.

How is a silk “scrunchie” different?

Silk is one of the most delicate and suitable natural fabrics to protect our hair. Why? Because it reduces the friction and tension specific to traditional elastics. Thus, you can use it on fine, dry, and thin hair without causing additional damage and without the classic scalp pain.

So, we decided to create a high-quality scrunchie. I opted for mulberry silk fibers, resistant, but not to forget an equally important aspect: to be “fashionable” and to wear it with pleasure every time you decide to opt for a look with caught hair.
