Top 5 Reasons Why Silk Accessories are GOOD For Your Hair
Silk is one of the most luxurious and coveted materials, loved for its gorgeous shimmering tones and irresistibly soft-to-the-touch texture. There is no surprise it has made its way into the haircare realm with its natural fibres and silky smooth texture being extra gentle on those precious strands. Silk can be described as a hair and beauty sleep weapon, with many beauty editors owing their shimmering locks to the wonders of silk hair wraps, silk pillowcases and silk hair ties.
So what makes this luxurious material so beneficial to our hair?
Could there be anything more luxurious and indulgent than sleeping on a beautiful silk pillowcase? We know that a good night’s sleep can make us look and feel rejuvenated, but can a pillowcase swap be the secret to waking up with clearer, smoother skin and lustrous locks?
Silk pillowcases are the latest must-have beauty tool. We tucked into the research, plus asked the experts whether slumbering on certain fabrics will make a difference in our skin or tresses.
Keeps hair hydrated
One of the biggest benefits of silk and satin over cotton is the fact that cotton absorbs moisture, depleting your hair of essential moisture whereas silk and satin allow your hair to retain its valuable hydration. Silk can help with brittle hair. Cotton is more porous than silk, so traditional pillowcases absorb moisture from your hair, while silk leaves that hydration right where it belongs: in your hair. That means if you suffer from dry strands or a flaky scalp, a silk pillowcase will be a godsend. And as a bonus, it also is amazing on acne-prone skin. A perfect combination ♥
The reason why silk is the best material for your hair accessories is that its natural, smooth texture has been found to improve the quality of hair. It prevents frizziness and reduces thinning, without forming split ends. They are known to keep your locks in optimal form by protecting hair from breakage as it causes less friction and tension on the hair, than other materials. They also help control tangling and leave your hair feeling super soft! Therefore serving as the perfect material for all hair types of hair but especially for hair that is dry and prone to breakage. Silk is the perfect alternative to keeping your hair tidy and away, day and night, while still looking shiny, fresh and drop dead cute!
Fine-haired folks or those experiencing hair loss, listen up!
Less friction and tugging from a silk pillowcase and silk scrunchie can lead to fewer broken hairs. Not having to brush through tangles will also help reduce breakage. Silk hair scrunchies not only do feel irresistible and look oh-so adorable, but their soft material is more gentle on those delicate strands around your hairline and doesn’t leave any kinks where your hairstyle has been. Removing it also another pleasant experience. With the silk you won’t experience pulling or broken hair around the tie, leaving you with healthier and stronger hair. Silk scrunchies are available at the salon for $7.95 each!
Looks amazing and It’s a true luxury experience
Perhaps the most important reason to invest in silk for your hair is because it looks stylish and amazing! Add more class and sophistication to you hair accessories by using silk ties, scarves, bonnets, and wraps! Sometimes we treat ourselves to a massage, a relaxing day at the beach or a quiet evening in the bathtub. Whatever your escape, laying your head to rest at night on a silk pillowcase is the perfect way to end your day. There is no better feeling then the soft, smooth and luxurious feel of silk against your skin when you go to bed at night. It is truly like having a massage every night.
