Beauty update: we’ve converted to silk scrunchies and we’re never turning back.
After all, there’s no time like the present to get back into pampering beauty rituals. We’re staying home and steering clear of crowds and pollution. We’re putting on face masks. We’re using body oils. And now, to tame that luscious mane, we’re switching to silk scrunchies.
Not just a sleek and stylish way to tie your hair whenever need be, silk scrunchies are actually better for your hair in multiple ways. They retain moisture in the hair, they reduce friction, they help prevent breakage of hair strands, and they don’t leave that weird dent that often comes by with regular elastic hair ties.
To get you on the silk scrunchies train (the First Class cabin thereof), read on for our favourite picks of the mix.

Starting off sweet and classic, we’re loving Silke London’s timeless champagne-coloured silk scrunchies. These ones are on the smaller side in terms of width, and thereby make for a very versatile number you could ever sport on your wrist whenever you — not just a figure of speech — let your hair down.
Using Thai silk and drawing inspiration from Southeast Asia, Jim Thompson’s Angkor Silk Hair Tie takes its design from the beauty of Siem Reap. A warm flush of colour, we see this silk scrunchies as a beautiful summer accessory.
Featuring its beloved patterns, this Fendi set of scrunchies boasts the signature FF logo print and the Baguette motif. Wear each one on its own or get creative with it and try both together.
For those who like options, Silke London’s six jewel-toned scrunchie set is a good idea. They’re known for their extremely durable elastic interior (despite its playful exterior) so they work well with even thicker manes.
Made using Thai Mulberry silk, we love So Silk’s elegant colour palette, as well as their variety of scrunchie sizes. Featuring all mini, midi, and large silk scrunchies, you can easily mix and match to meet your needs.
Another local silk brand, Atliz Silk makes plush silk scrunchies the way you always imagine them. We like the little bow detail for a playful touch, and we love that the store also boasts even more Mulberry silk offerings: sleeping masks, face masks, and even pillow cases. We’re officially ready for more silk in our beauty routine.
