Silk is one of the more luxurious materials on the market and is coveted for its unique properties. Silk is used in the creation of opulent goods from apparel to bedding, drapes, and tapestries. Silk is well-known for its smooth and cool-to-the-touch texture and its iconic rainbow shimmer in natural light – caused by the triangular structure of its threads. Now many are discovering silk’s amazing uses in haircare and how it can help you avoid frizzy and unruly locks. Let’s take a closer look at that various ways silk can aid your haircare routine:
Silk has a much smoother surface than other materials like cotton or polyester, meaning that it provides far less friction against your hair! This means that silk products rubbing against your head will cause fewer split ends and help keep your hair neat and tidy. Silk pillowcases are especially good for protecting your hair through the night. No more morning frizz or irritating fly-aways!
Silk contains a range of natural proteins and amino acids which help keep both skin and hair well-nourished and hydrated. Using silk in haircare takes advantage of these natural properties. Silk helps keep your hair hydrated by locking in the natural moisture and oils in your hair, unlike materials like cotton which will absorb these, leaving your hair dry and rough.
The silky-smoothness of silk is also wonderful for bobbles, scrunchies and hair ties, as it prevents tangling and knots! The material glides effortlessly across your hair making it perfect for anything used to hold you hair in place. Put an end to ripped-out hairs or bobbles tangled up in your frizz!
Because of these various properties, silk is an amazing material for all uses hair. Silk won’t grip or rip your delicate strands, nor will it dry them out or frizz them up! Silk will leave your hair sleek, smooth, moisturised, and, most importantly, nourished and strong! So ditch the cotton pillowcases, bin the synthetic scrunchies, and get some silk products to ensure you’re getting the most out of your haircare routine!
