Silk pillowcases have many benefits for not only your hair but your skin as well! If you’re looking to improve the look of your hair and skin, look no further I have all the answers here.
So what is silk exactly? It’s a natural protein fibre, composed mostly of fibroin. Silk has a beautiful shiny look to it due to the prism-like structure of the actual fibre.
It’s because of the smooth texture of silk, that having a silk pillowcase can…
Prevent wrinkles. Due to the texture of the fabric, there is less tugging on the skin than a cotton pillowcase. Meaning that you are free to toss and turn to your hearts content without the worry of causing creasing to your skin.
Prevent frizzy hair. Circling back to the super smooth texture of silk, it allows your hair to glide across easily over it — which again — minimises friction to your hair. In contrast, cotton pillowcases can snag hair and push it into a mess of tangles overnight.
Keep your skin hydrated. Silk is actually less likely to absorb any moisture from skin, keeping your skin nice and hydrated without pulling away any valuable moisture.
Let me just warn you, they do take some getting used to. Your first night — perhaps even your first 30 nights — just feel a bit weird. However once you get used to it, you won’t be able to turn back. To the point where I recently stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney and even their pillowcases weren’t up to my standards.
Enter Slip Silk. The most beautiful and luxurious silk pillowcases on the market. They are quite literally developed and refined over ten years to provide the best combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability. And let me tell you, it shows. The pillowcases are so soft and luxurious and most importantly, they wash beautifully.
According to Slip, “In laboratory testing slipsilk™ was shown to absorb significantly less face cream and create 43% less friction on average compared to widely available cotton pillowcases with a 220-360 thread count.” How good is that!
As an added luxury, I picked up a pack of the hair scrunchies as well and let me tell you, they don’t slip on the quality. Designed to avoid creasing, the scrunchies are a gentle relief after a long day of a tight pony, whilst still being a beautiful accessory.
So if you are looking to improve you skin, hair hydration, prevent fine lines and wrinkles and wake up to frizz-free hair every morning – then what could you be waiting for? Slip silk can be purchased on the slip website, David Jones, Mecca, Sephora and select other retailers.
