Beat The Blues With SILKE London

As we hit the 47th of January (or so it feels like it), everyone’s experiencing a case of ‘the blues’. This is the time to up the self love! 

Contrary to Tik Tok belief, that doesn’t have to mean quitting your job and following a 97 step morning routine; it can be as simple as slipping on your Hair Wrap and letting it love you locks, whilst you spend a little bit of time enjoying your favourite movie! 

SILKE London are all about minimal effort and maximum results - and that also goes for self care. Here are our go-to steps when it comes to giving ourselves a little bit of extra TLC: 

Take a tip from our founder, Maria Sotiriou, 

“Every 2 weeks, right before your hair wash, warm your hair up with a blow-dryer then massage an oil of your choice into your hair and scalp. My favourites are olive, almond or coconut oils. 

Leave it in for a minimum of 1 hour, then apply shampoo and continue with your hair wash routine as normal. It’ll give your hair and scalp a boost right when you need it”.


Short on time? Just take a pause. 

Self care doesn’t have to mean adding extra steps. By taking a little bit of extra time to really massage in that hair oil or shampoo, not only are you increasing your circulation and lovin’ on your scalp; you’re also having a little extra slice of ‘you time’. 

Maria always recommends extra time shampooing behind your ears and at the nape of the neck as that’s the part of your scalp that needs the biggest clean.


Enjoy extra time in bed. 

Sometimes all we need is 20 minutes longer! By cocooning your hair overnight in our Hair Wrap you can hit snooze knowing that you don’t need the extra time to faff around with hot styling or excess products. The Hair Wrap prolongs your gorgeous blow-dry, keeping grease and frizz at bay, so you can whip your Hair Wrap off and be ready to go in no time at all.

Did you know we spend a third of our lives in bed? Why not make it count.


Take pleasure in the downtime. 

Pop your comfies on, grab your favourite snacks and hunker down to watch your favourite series or film, all whilst treating your hair at the same time…

Did you know that your sofa pillows are just as abrasive as your cotton pillowcases? Always wear your Hair Wrap whilst lounging as it creates a physical barrier between your hair and any abrasive fabrics. They suck the hydration out of your mane without you noticing causing heaps of unnecessary damage; so when we said minimal effort with maximum results, we meant it. 


What’re you waiting for, go and relax! 

Love, SILKE xo
