The Best Silk and Satin Hair Accessories for Textured Hair

11/05/2021

It’s no secret that hair accessories are having a major moment. Cool claw clips, oversized scrunchies, and Gossip Girl-worthy headbands have been popping up literally everywhere. But, as much as we all love adorning our hair with pretty accessories, those of us with textured hair know that not every hair clip and scarf out there is best suited for our hair type. In fact, some can be downright damaging to our curls and coils, causing breakage, frizz, and added dryness.

That’s why, if you have natural or textured hair, it’s important to make sure you’re reaching for satin or silk lined accessories the next time you’re styling your strands. Unlike other materials, silks smooths over your curls, helps to retain moisture, and eliminates friction that can cause split ends and tangles. 

To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite silky accessories that not only look good but will keep your hair safe from harm. Ahead, 6 silk and satin hair accessories that you (and your curls) are sure to love!

It’s soft, shiny, gorgeous in its color, huge, and stretchy for my super thick and long locs which I can NEVER find in hair ties, holders, or scrunchies, and makes me feel stylish and amazingly beautiful.
