This scrunchie is made with care, high quality elastic and thread. It is sturdy and will not snap apart easily. I have very thick hair and I am able to wrap this around twice and have it hold in place. With the half up, half down look, I can wrap 3 times! I tend to have hair elastics snap on me easily, so I made sure to use good elastic and closure to ensure this wouldn’t happen. Feel free to message me with any further questions.
