If you want to jump into the VSCO girl trend bandwagon (we won't judge, promise!), your starter pack wouldn't be complete without a pair or two of silk scrunchies.
Silk scrunchies are all the rage nowadays, with celebrities donning them as a hair accessory or a companion to classy, red-carpet looks. But is it actually worth getting these for $60 apiece?
Look no further if you're in dire need of honest reviews of best scrunchies in Singapore. We've done the legwork, so you don't have to.
We get into the nitty-gritty of why these silk scrunchies are worth more than your average hair tie (and why you need to make the switch now!).
#1. Fii Beauty Cloud Scrunchie Curler
Why we love it: Get salon-like curls without heat damage.
Ever been invited to a last-minute Friday night party? It's less than 5 hours away, and you don't have the time (nor budget) to visit a stylist and have your hair done fast!
So what do you do? Probably try a hair styling tool like a curler. Then again, you're not a pro. And your curling iron is nowhere to be found.
Luckily, these luxurious Fii Beauty Cloud Curlers are here to save the day. This is the original silk curling scrunchie in Singapore, which fulfils its promise of salon-like curls without drawbacks.
These scrunchie curlers are made only from 100% OEKO-TEX® Certified mulberry silk for smoother and more voluminous hair.
Mulberry is indeed an interesting choice, even for a silk scrunchie. But we realised they were not just for show — these scrunchies easily slid off our hair without friction. It's like pulling on clouds!
We also observed less hair fallout while using this silk scrunchie. It's a perfect choice, especially if you're prone to hair damage and don't want to heat style your hair too much.
*Fii Beauty Cloud Curlers are available in six original designs. We recommend the Twin Pack ($71), so you can pick two chic colours of your choice.
How To Wear The Fii Beauty Cloud Curler
As these aren't your average silk scrunchies, wearing them might take a little practice before getting the hang of it. But the process is relatively easy and takes only mere minutes:
- Step 1: Pull your hair up in a ponytail. Make sure the silk scrunchie's curling rod is facing the front. Bring your ponytail across the curler, then loop it around the rod until all of the hair is wrapped up.
- Step 2: Firmly hold onto the curled hair before twisting the other end of the curler in a figure-eight motion. Loop it over, secure it, and fix your hair into a high bun.
- Step 3: Let the curler sit for 4 hours (or longer if you want more prominent curls).
- Step 4: Et voila! Gorgeous and long-lasting curls, ready for your party. (Tip: use a finishing spray to achieve a much longer hold).
#2. Slip Pure Silk Skinny Scrunchies
Why we love it: Less hair fallout than regular elastic hair bands.
Another great brand on our list, our review of best scrunchies in Singapore wouldn't be complete without talking about these Slip Skinny Scrunchies.
Made with slipsilk™, these scrunchies are guaranteed to be gentle and delicate on the hair compared to regular hair ties.
According to the slip website, slipsilk™ has been tested to minimise friction by more than 40% than other materials. And we found the benefits to be similar in scrunchie form.
The scrunchie easily glides off the hair and doesn't leave out strands in the process. We might have to scrap our old elastic band for these sleek-looking ones.
As advertised, slipsilk™ also minimises hair fallout and reduces those annoying kinks. But we also noticed that these scrunchies stretched out much faster than other brands.
While it still does an excellent job of keeping a messy bun or ponytail in place, you might need to make a few more loops the more you use it to achieve similar results.
*The Pure Silk Skinny Scrunchies - Fierce Trio is the most-rated among buyers. Get them at Sephora, available at $35 per pack.
#3. Bask MIDI Silk Scrunchies
Why we love it: Affordable silk scrunchies without compromising on quality.
Silk scrunchies can get pretty expensive, and you're probably wondering, "Are there silk scrunchies under $9?" the answer is a resounding yes, and we have just the thing.
Bask MIDI Silk Scrunchies retail just for $8.90 apiece. Even then, Bask has still managed to ensure that only 100% mulberry silk is used to create these cute scrunchies.
They're OEKO-TEX® Certified just the same, made of real silk, and not synthetic materials as the price would have you otherwise assuming.
From the get-go, the MIDI scrunchies have a similar look and feel to the other two brands on our list. They're remarkably gentle and do a good job of eliminating kinks and unruly strands.
Another great thing about these scrunchies is that they can easily double as accessories. It's not difficult to pair them with your OOTDs if that's what you're worried about.
For its price, it's a good buy. The design may be limited to thin hair types, but it more than makes up for the lack of options with its under-$9 price tag.
*Get your MIDI Silk Scrunchies from BASK, available in Sets of 3s for $24.90.
#4. Fayre Silk Scrunchie
Why we love it: Large-size scrunchies for different hairstyles.
As rudimentary as silk scrunchies go, Fayre Silk Scrunchies get it right. No frills, no fusses, just good old fashioned silk scrunchies.
Fayre scrunchies come in a large design, making them ideal for those who want to flaunt this hair accessory. Like all the other scrunchies on our list, they're soft, smooth, and have that classic, luxurious feel.
Don't be fooled by its thick shape. The scrunchie still holds up well in terms of elasticity. It's pretty durable and can go for multiple uses without stretching too much.
But after wearing it for long periods, we did find that the scrunchie left behind a subtle tie line on our hair. You may want to take note of this before removing the scrunchie.
*Faye Silk Scrunchies are available in 7 different styles, each retailing for $30. Buy them from the Fayre website.
#5. June Silk Scrunchies
Why we love it: Simple and stylish scrunchies for everyday wear.
The June Silk Scrunchie has everything a great scrunchie should have: stylish colours, multi-sizes for thin and thick hair, made of 100% pure mulberry silk - need we say more?
June Silk prides itself in crafting luxurious scrunchies at a friendly price tag (just $15 a pop!). Who says you have to spend a fortune to get beautiful hair?
Whether it's a messy bun, ponytail, or French braid, June Silk offers great hold with minimal drawbacks. As soft as the silk is, the scrunchies don't fall or loosen up, even if you wear them for the whole day.
The one-twist application is also a neat feature. June Silk is an excellent choice if you're new to the world of scrunchies and don't want anything too complicated.
*June Silk Scrunchies are available in Jumbo, Large, and Skinny sizes. We recommend their Scrunchie Set for the best value.
#6. White Trosseau 100% Mulberry Silk Scrunchies
Why we love it: Silk scrunchies made with hair health in mind.
Silk scrunchies are more than just hair accessories. They also hold the secrets to great hair health. So if you haven't switched to them yet, White Trosseau might convince you.
Crafted with 100% pure mulberry silk, White Trosseau Silk Scrunchies glide seamlessly on the hair without tugging or breakage. Although the scrunchies are a bit thicker, they're suitable for all hair types.
There's more than meets the eye with these scrunchies. Silk, a protein-based material, contains tons of amino acids that can lock in moisture and prevent frizz.
We won't go too deep into the science. All you need to know is that if you want what's best for your hair, these scrunchies are your go-to.
* Each White Trosseau Silk Scrunchie retails for $14.90. Get them individually in packs of 3.
#7 Wee Bands 100% Pure Mulberry Silk Hair Curler Scrunchie
Why we love it: Affordable and long-lasting curler scrunchies
Another curler scrunchie on our reviews of the best scrunchies in Singapore, this curler is the best choice for prolonging, enhancing, or blowing our styled hair.
If you're always on the go and don't have the luxury of spending hours just styling your hair in the morning, these curler scrunchies can help. They're straightforward to use and will significantly save you hundreds of dollars from a simple trip to the salon.
We love the fine quality of Wee Bands' curler scrunchies, but the design options are pretty limited. Their curlers currently come in only three styles: Pink, Black, and Plum. But it's not a problem if you're a savvy fashionista that likes mixing and matching zany pieces together.
* Wee Bands Curler Scrunchies are available in Original and Mini sizes. You can also check out other silk accessories from the Wee Bands website.
#8 Sense Silk Pure Silk Scrunchie
Why we love it: Effortless styling. Perfect for gifts.
We women already have a lot to think about. We don't need to add hair woes to a long list of things that give us headaches. So when choosing a silk scrunchie, we don't want confusion. We only want things that make sense.
Staying true to its branding, Sense Silk simplifies the world of silk scrunchies with its simple yet exquisite Pure Silk Scrunchie. Buying scrunchies shouldn't be tedious, and Sense Silk eliminates the fanfare by offering only premium, well-crafted scrunchies for the everyday woman.
Buying for someone else? Not a problem. Each silk scrunchie you purchase comes with sturdy gift box packaging, ready for gifting. We loved this neat little addition as it allowed us to safely store and tuck away our silk scrunchies without losing them.
