I'm someone who works out frequently, and the two essentials I need for any great sweat session are a supportive sports bra and a great hair tie. I have some great options for the former, but the latter is a bit more complicated. I have long, thick hair, which isn't a bad thing, but it means I need a tight ponytail to stay put through my dance cardio and pilates sessions. I don't want a regular rubber band because it bends my hair and just isn't a great way to preserve my hair's health, but all the scrunchies I've tried never seem to stay put. That is, until I tried the scrunchies from Girlfriend Collective.
I didn't think much of these when they first arrived on my doorstep, but because I love the Girlfriend Collective leggings and sports bras, I gave it a shot. In short, this scrunchie is perfect. It's tight enough to survive my toughest workouts, but there are no bumps or bends in my hair. Plus, the fabric is moisture-wicking, which is perfect for a sweat session. After searching for what feels like forever, I found my perfect hair tie, and if you're as active as I am, you need one too.
