BENEFITS OF A SILK PILLOWCASE
ANTI - SLEEP CREASE
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase will prevent your delicate skin from sleep creases and premature wrinkle formation. It also won’t absorb your skins moisture and facial creams, leaving your products where they should be: on your skin. (Yay to moisturised, glowing skin.)
ANTI - BED HEAD AND DAMAGE
When you sleep on a cotton pillowcase, your hair rubbing on the cotton creates friction, which leads to frizz, breakage, and split ends. This is all prevented when you sleep on a silk pillowcase, as your hair follicles can easily glide along the material. Say hello to waking up with amazing, silky locks.
ANTI - AGING HORMONE
Silk is a very cooling material, and studies show that when your body is cool at night, it releases the crucial anti-aging hormone melatonin.
Silk is a naturally hypoallergenic material, with a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mould, in addition to many other allergens.
BENEFITS OF A SILK CAP
NO MORE FRIZZ OR BED HEAD
Silk dramatically reduces the friction that would normally occur between your hair and a cotton pillow. This means no more frizz in the morning, and no time wasted restyling your hair.
OILY ROOTS AND DRY TIPS
Wearing a silk sleeping cap encourages your natural hair oils to disperse from roots to tips, reducing oil build up at the roots and nourishing your dry ends. This means you don’t have to wash your hair as often and you can save money on expensive masks and oils.
SO LONG SPLIT ENDS
Silk protects your hair strands from moisture absorbing cotton, so your hair maintains its hydration. It also reduces friction, which in turn reduces split ends, saving you trips to the hair dressers.
BYE BYE BABY HAIRS
Not only will sleeping on silk promote hair growth, but it will protect your stubborn baby hairs, encouraging their growth. Say goodbye to those fly aways!
SO WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
A PILLOWCASE MAY SUIT YOU BETTER IF:
You would like to see all round benefits in both your hair and skin.
You are a little more forgetful when it comes to your skin and hair care routine, you just want to jump straight into bed.
You have very long, thick hair. The silk cap is one size fits most, however if you have trouble getting your hair into a standard shower cap, it may be a tight squeeze. In this case, we would recommend opting for a silk pillowcase.
Wrinkles are becoming a concern. The silk pillowcase prevents early onset of wrinkles by preventing sleep creases. As your skin ages its ability to bounce back out of sleep creases reduces, making them become more permanent.
Dry skin is one of your concerns. The silk pillowcase will not absorb your facial products off your skin, allowing them to do what they’re meant to.
A CAP MAY SUIT YOU BETTER IF:
One of your main concerns is reducing frizz and bed hair. The silk cap will help you achieve that ‘I woke up like this’ hair.
You have damaged hair and want to prevent split ends and breakage while you sleep. Both the silk pillowcase and cap will help with this, however the cap will be more effective as your hair is completely protected.
You have a great night time routine and you won’t forget to wear your cap to bed.
You like to have your hair out of your face while you sleep.
One of your main concerns is oily roots and dry tips. The cap will help to distribute your hair oils from root to tip, naturally nourishing your ends.
