They're everywhere - WalMart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Dollar Store/Dollar General

Just get them as cheap as you can, if all you're doing is sleeping in them.

I buy my scrunchies at the dollar store for the most part. Why spend a lot of money?

I cut a 2inch wide section off an old long sleeve tee shirt sleeve and use that (no need to sew edges as it doesn't fray). Its not too tight and gives a little stretch. (couldn't find my scrunchie one night!)

I meant to warn everyone, at cvs they sell a two pack with one black and one brown scrunchie, I *think* it's by goody or scunci....DON'T BUY THAT ONE! The black one is made with this horrible cheap dye that stains EVERYTHING including your skin and hair. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why the water looked so dirty when I washed my hair. From that stupid thing!

I actually took it off and work, folded it between a bunch of sheets of paper to put in my back and would you believe that dye seeped through? It looked like an ink pot broke!

If you don't mind a bit of diy, get a pack of 1/4 or 1/2 inch elastic and an old t-shirt scrap or some lycra or jersey fabric. Cut a long strip of the fabric about 2 in wide and a piece of the elastic that is the unstretched width you want your scrunchie to be + 1/2 in. The fabric should be 2 or 3 times longer than your elastic, at least. Fold the fabric in half (hotdog style) and sew it up to make a tube. Turn this inside out and thread the elastic through it, keeping track of both ends. I usually safetey pin one end of the elastic to something so I don't lose it. Sew the elastic into a loop with 1/4 in left on the ends and then sew up the ends of the fabric tube so they enclose the elastic but aren't sewn onto it. It's a scrunchie!

That sounds awful. How does a company make that kind of mistake?

I don't use scrunchies to pineapple. I use to, but now I just use normal ponytail holders. I don't notice a dent in my hair, so I figure it's fine.

you can use the leg of a knee high stocking or sock, just cut off the foot at the ankle so you have a long tube, then start rolling the long tube into a donut shape and when you gather your hair into the pineapple, just pull through the center of the donut and maybe twist the donut once. the donut supports the pineapple and keeps your hair from flopping over.
