With the intense summer heat rolling in this month, it’s difficult to resist the urge to throw your hair back into a messy bun, ponytail, or any hairstyle away from your face. While traditional hair elastics and other accessories can be damaging to your hair, silk scrunchies and headbands are gentle to use on dry, damaged, and weak hair to reduce breakage. If you’re looking to keep your hair smooth, healthy, and creaseless this summer, look no further. 

 The Silk Labs is a Toronto based Luxury silk goods company offering a variety of hand-sewn accessories including scrunchies, headbands, and sleeping masks, which can be purchased directly online and are sold worldwide. One of our favourites is the 100 percent silk headbands, as they can be styled in multiple ways. Wear them around your neck, belt, bag, ponytail, bun, or thread through a braid, and keep your hair protected from creases and damage at the same time!

Jenna, the 22-year-old owner of The Silk Labs, set out to create the best quality silk products to help reduce damage on your skin and hair when she was in her final year of university. After searching for a good quality silk scrunchie at the right price point, she realized that there was a gap in the market.  

“I had read about the benefits of silk for your hair and skin and was eager to get my hands on some,” explains Jenna Labiak on why she started her company. “ After a few Google searches, I discovered what I wanted wasn’t available. I realized what I wanted as a consumer wasn’t on the market, and I believe a lot of my customers can relate.” 

 Additionally, one of the Silk Labs’ brand goals is to help reduce their ecological footprint, which is why all products are delivered in plastic-free packaging. 

Since the launch of the brand that has always been a priority for us.  It’s very difficult and comes with a lot of obstacles, but we will always choose the more ethical option,” said Labiak.
