White silk pillowcase

Why I made the switch from cotton to silk

If you have bleached, damaged or dry hair - this will resonate with you, as it did with me. Before launching Sylk and Sleep Co. I struggled to maintain that all so natural and effortless shine you see on those Pantene Shampoo advertisements. Oh, to have soft and silky hair...I had tried every expensive hair care brand, blonde shampoo, treatment etc. but still, I would notice dead ends, hair breakage and the ever looming dullness in my hair.

It wasn't until many nights spent on research and testimonials on the benefits of silk, that it clicked for me. I realised that while I would spend hundreds, if not thousands, on expensive salon treatments, I hadn't considered truly investing in my everyday hair care. And honestly, I wish I knew about silk earlier.

Switching from cotton pillowcases and scrunchies was one of the best things I did for my hair. I said goodbye to lifeless dry hair, and hello to soft silky hair. Unlike cotton, silk is not abrasive, reduces hair damage, infuses hydration and protects the hair. You could liken this to a salon treatment, all while you sleep. What more could a girl want?

Within the first night of sleeping on my sample silk pillowcase (which I still have and use 3 + years later) my hair was instantly transformed. No more birds nest in the morning or looking like I hadn't brushed my hair in 3 days. And do you want to know what's even more impressive? My hairdresser even asked 'what are you doing different to your hair? It looks and feels so much healthier'. My answer, 'Silk'.

So take it from me, silk has literally saved my hair (and at a fraction of the cost of salon treatments, hair care products etc). Ditch the cotton and make the switch to silk. Your hair will thank you for it.
