These metal free hair ties use to come in different colors and sizes so that our mom could create those a variety of hairstyles for school back in the day. Well, they’re making a comeback. However, they’re even better this time – they are METAL FREE SCRUNCHIES.
Scrunchies made with metals are not good for our hair. After you’ve looped the scrunchie around your section 2 or 3 times, eventually the hair will get trapped into the metal. How? Well, your hair is rubbing against the metal which causes friction. And the dead hairs that are falling from your hair will eventually get stuck there. In addition, you may notice the metal pulling on your hair strand when you’re trying to pull out your ponytail because your hair strands got trapped. Hence, no more metal scrunchies.
They are destroying our hair bit by bit after we worked so hard to care for it. Metal-free scrunchies are just as good as the metal ones. Similarly, they come in similar sizes, colours and elasticity. They only difference is that they do not have metal to keep the two ends of the scrunchie together. It is held together by an adhesive. And it works just as well or even better than what we’re used to.
2020 is the year of metal-free scrunchies because they’re here to serve our hair problem of always getting our hair wrapped around the scrunchie.
