The Return Of The Scrunchies

A few years back when I was still in school, I used to always have my hair in a ponytail. I think it was mainly down to the fact that it was a lot more practical and neater to have all of my hair tied back. I also have long, thick hair, so it was easier to tie it tightly in the morning with several hairbands so that I didn't have to do a half-job of it when it came to sports lessons. I used to own so many scrunchies and, because of how thick my hair was, they were usually just for decoration after I'd used a tighter hairband to keep my hair up.


These very pretty looking things are from an online beauty website called Xtras. I have to say, it's been a while since I've got my hands on some brand new scrunchies. I wear my hair down most of the time nowadays and, when I don't, I use a (very) large hair grip/claw to clip all of my hair up. I'd almost forgotten how pretty scrunchies can be, and they seem to have gathered popularity again recently. Xtras kindly sent me a few products to review.


I love this Bright Floral Lime Scrunchie* and how summery it looks. I'm not usually one to go for anything remotely green-coloured but this just stood out to me and I don't own anything lime either so I figured this would add a nice splash of colour into my life. I love how soft and silky this feels, although the material isn't very stretchy so it's best reserved for added hair decoration. It definitely won't hold up my hair in a ponytail on its own. 


I love anything with bows on as I think it looks so cute so I was very pleased with these two Chiffon Floral Bow Scrunchies*. I also happen to really like chiffon too so this was even better. I have to say that the "bows" are essentially shoe-lace tie bows that are tied around the main part of the scrunchie, so it's not the neatest looking bow I've ever seen. I kind of see them more as chiffon tails. You can also completely remove the bows/tails if you don't fancy having them on there! 

Do you still use scrunchies?
