Benefits of Using Silk Hair Accessories
Let’s face it – we all have had those moments when you take your hair tie off, and the hair is all tangled in rough knots. Some hair may accidentally get pulled out when the hair tie comes off. Well, did you know that it doesn’t have to be? Silk is long known to be beneficial for hair health. Here are the benefits of using silk hair accessories, and how to use them to maximize those benefits:
1) Sleep with Silk Scrunchies to Restore Moisture to Your Hair
A conditioner can help put your moisture back into your hair, but so can silk scrunchies. Does that sound too good to be true? It has been shown that sleeping on pillow cases made of real silk can help prevent hair breakage, restore moisture, and protect delicate hair as it regrows. The alternative to using a silk pillow case is to use silk scrunchies.
Silk material keeps hair protected and moisture locked in. Silk is a protein-based material that contains vital amino acids that help hair retain moisture and promote growth. This is why many hair conditioners and salon treatments are made with silk protein.
Justine Marjan, a celebrity hairstylist who has worked with the Kardashians, said that “silk doesn’t pull moisture from your hair and skin the way that cotton does, leaving your hair silkier and more hydrated”. This is especially beneficial for naturally dry and textured hair, which tends to be more prone to breakage.
When you sleep with silk scrunchies on, don’t put it too tight. It is recommended that you sleep in two lose buns or a loose braid. The bonus is that you’ll wake up with nice, easy waves when you take them out in the morning. Think of it as hair styling overnight to save you time from doing your hair in the morning. If you prefer to keep your natural hair without waves, use it normally without the loose braid.
What are you waiting for? Get those silk scrunchies in before you sleep, and wake up with the perfect hair like Sleeping Beauty.
2) Use Silk Scrunchies for Your Day-to-Day Routines to Protect Your Hair
There is no need to wait until bedtime to get the full benefits of silk for your hair. Replace regular elastic hair ties with hair tie scrunchies made from pure silk, like the ones that we sell here at GladHair.com! These products will keep your hair conditioned and pampered with a boost of silky beauty. Silk works by reducing friction and thus tangles. Regular elastic hair ties can pull and tug at your hair, leaving you with knots, breakage, and split ends. This is why sometimes putting them in, wearing them, and removing them can be damaging or a little bit painful. In contrast, your hair glides across the smooth surface of a silk crunchy virtually friction-free. There is no pulling, tugging, or tearing at delicate hair.
Silk scrunchies are also great for a multitude of different hair-dos – from a regular ponytail or bun to head full coarse curls, and anything in between.
3) Wear Silk Scrunchies during Sports and Physical Activities to Prevent Frizz and Tangles
We already know that silk helps restore and retain moisture in your hair. For this reason, silk scrunchies also help prevent frizz, breakage, and tangles during high-impact activities such as sports and working out at the gym. Whether you have short or long hair, thick or fine hair, or straight or curly hair, replacing your regular elastic hair ties with silk scrunchies is a great idea. Your ponytail will look and feel fabulous!
4) Use Silk Scrunchies Around the Clock – They are Hypoallergenic and Environmentally Friendly!
Silk hair accessories can be worn all day and all night. They help to protect your hair by restoring and retaining moisture, preventing breakage and frizz, and avoiding tangles. Best of all, the silk products that we carry here are hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly.
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic because silk fibers are made of amino acids called sericin. Sericin helps to repel dust mites, which are a major source of allergic irritation for many people. This protein (sericin) also makes silk resistant to bacteria, fungus, and mold. This makes silk scrunchies ideal for those suffering from allergies or sensitive skin.
We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint by maintaining standards for the screening of harmful substances in consumer textiles. Our silk scrunchies are colored with environmentally friendly dyes, and do not contain harmful toxins and chemicals.
You can select from a variety of modern and stylish-looking designs and colors to suit any occasion and mood.
