There’s no better sign of a girl on a mission than a messy bun. Some of my best ideas, most productive work days, and greatest accomplishments involve the hairstyle. It’s like some weird scientific fact that nailing the look will instantly make you happier, ready to get shit done, and boost your bank account. Okay, one of those is not true, but the other two are. The only problem is the aftermath — crazy hair that is creased in all places. That’s where silk scrunchies come in.
I proper get ready almost every day. Not only do I love the process, but I also feel like it helps my work. I feel ready when I have my hair and makeup done. That’s just a personal preference. But I also really love messy buns. Just like the phrase — “messy bun and get shit done” — I love to throw my hair up, bust out my to-do list, and get one with my day.
Thanks to the beauty products, the messy bun is no longer an all-day commitment.
My hair creases no matter what hair tie I use. Well, used to. Thin bands, thick bands, and regular cloth scrunchies couldn’t do the trick. Silk scrunchies did. Whether my hair is straight or curly, the silk scrunchies protects my hair, no matter how long I wear it. It’s like a little circle of magic. Actually, I’m wearing one right now as I’m writing this.
I test a lot of products every month, but silk scrunchies have been a constant in my life for a solid sixty days now. There aren’t a lot of items that I can say that about. I keep one on my desk and one on my bedside table for when I go to bed. Because, like I said, no matter how long you keep silk scrunchies in your hair, there will be no creases.
Don’t believe me? Well, maybe you’ll believe celebrity hairstylist Laurie Heaps. She doesn’t just back up my theory of silk scrunchies being complete game-changers, but she’s seen them in action too.
“Since a scrunchie is soft and much more flexible than traditional ties, they will not make large dents in the hair,” Heaps says. “Even if you wear one for the hours as you sleep, you will not have visible markings that cannot be brushed out.”
They truly are a girl boss’s best friend. Whether you’re digging into weekly planning, getting daily tasks out of the day, or sleeping, silk scrunchies have your back.
Remember the scrunchies that you rocked in the ’90s? Well, these aren’t the same. They look just as great on your arm, but these are the updated version. Just like silk shirts and scarves, these accessories are the grown-up version. Unfortunately, that means that the price tag is a bit higher.
The silk scrunchies that I use are from Silk Laundry. They come in four different colors — black, red, green, and white — for $27.51 each. It’s a lot of money, but, to be completely honest, it is worth it. Especially if you wear your hair up throughout the day. Plus there’s the added bonus of not getting a headache from having your hair up.
I’m selling one of my unused silk scrunchies for way cheaper on my Poshmark page.
Because everyone deserves to try these out. I wish I could hand them out to each and every one of you reading this, but this is the best that I could do.
I know this item might not be thrifted or eco-friendly, but I couldn’t help but share it with you. This item has seriously changed how I go about my day-to-day work. It was too good not to share, and I hope it brings you as much joy as it has brought me.
Because us girl bosses need to stick together any way we can. Even if it means saying each others’ hair styles.
