Wash my Ponytail Holders? WHAT?!

Do you wash your ponytail holders or scrunchies? Well what if I told you that not washing your hair ties can lead to a multitude of hair and scalp related problems?

Here are just a few of the problems that dirty scrunchies can cause:

Scalp Irritation

Overtime, your scrunchies get packed with bacteria and little microbes that can cause scalp irritation and itchiness. This is especially true if you wear your wet hair in ponytails often. Fungus and bacteria can build up and lead to many scalp problems. Keep this in mind when you're on vacation, swimming or working out.


If your ponytail holders are packed with bacteria, this can lead to breakage of your hair. Remember, clean hair is happy hair. And even if you hair is clean, by introducing an unclean scrunchie into your hair, you pose the risk of causing breakage and brittle hair.

Stunts Growth

Yes, having a dirty hair tie stunts your growth. So if you've been putting in work, following a natural hair care routine and listening to all the natural hair gurus but you're not seeing any growth, consider washing your scrunchies and your other styling tools. Yes, including that baby hair brush!


To avoid these problems here’s what you can do:

1.Wear silk scrunchies

They're easy to wash and limit breakage and drying out your hair

2.Wash your scrunchies on your hair wash days, or throw them in with your laundry.

Frequent washing will ensure that you aren't causing harm to your hair with dirty styling tools.

3. Avoid having your wet hair in a ponytail for a long period of time

Allow your hair to air dry before wrapping it up into one.

Here are some tools to help prevent breakage and get you the hair goals you desire!
