A healthy hair friend joked me about my peek-a-boo scrunchie after seeing my bun. She meant no harm; she was just having good fun. However, for those of you that might be wondering why I’m rocking a srunchie, do know, my scrunchie is not your typical Walmart or Target scrunchie. My scrunchie is silk and handmade. I purchased a handful of these from Etsy some years ago. Unfortunately the vendor is out of business, however, all hope isn’t lost. I did a quick search and there are many vendors offering silk scrunchie’s on Etsy.
Ok, ok, ok…I know scrunchies are often associated with little girls but trust me, don’t knock them until you try them. They are a healthy hair option for those of us wearing a lot of ponytails and buns. I like them because they are gentle and safe. Matter fact, they are the most gentle and safest of the bunning options I have available in my stash. They never snag or snap my hair and that, I like. I also like that I don’t have to coat the scrunchie with conditioner or oil to minimize friction. It’s just great on its own.
My bun was created with a few easy steps:
I must admit, this is my go-to style at least 3 days out of the week, especially on gym day when I need to keep things simple.
What’s your favorite go-to style?
