Every time we make clothing from a roll of fabric, there are some “scraps” that get left behind. This lonely material, known as “pre-consumer” waste, contributes significantly to the environmental footprint of clothing. Enter scrunchies! Made from the leftover recycled material used for our leggings, our scrunchies are quick-drying and moisture-wicking, while also enabling us to reduce our pre-consumer waste.

Materials: 88% Repreve® RPET (recycled polyester made from post-consumer plastic bottles), 12% spandex.

Happiness Guaranteed

We stand behind every product we make. If you have a problem, we will solve it with the relentless determination of a salmon swimming upstream to spawn.

These are too cute and so perfect!! I've had the turtle one for over a year now and use it all the time. Just got 3 more and can't wait to use them too!

Kailyn Gunkler (St. Petersburg, FL, US)

I am obsessed with the scrunchies I ordered. They are perfect for diving and day-to-day life, especially when you live in Fl and have a lot of hair. Amazing quality and BIG!!!

Super Secure Scrunchie

I have completely changed my thoughts about using scrunchies thanks to this scrunchie. I used to think clips held my thick hair better, but these have become my new go-to. This is a comfortable scrunchie to have in my hair. My hair does NOT fall out with this. Buying more soon.

Great for diving!!

I absolutely LOVE these scrunchies! Regular hair ties always get tangled in my hair when diving and are pretty painful to get out; but these scrunchies are amazing! They don’t get stuck and cause no pain when pulling out of wet hair!

Lovely patterns and fabric

These look great with my matching leggings! The patterns that show up the best are the spotted eagle ray and sun-kissed sea.

I’m loving my new scrunchies! There are so many gorgeous colors to choose from that I ended up purchasing quite a few. I love that they are made from pre-consumer waste. I appreciate that Waterlust is working to protect our oceans & our wonderful sea life. The scrunchies add a pretty pop of color while holding my hair in place. They are more substantial than the ones you find in most stores. I am very happy with my purchase & highly recommend them!
