After 28 years of heat styling and chemical straightening, ELLE's Emma King decided it was time to take a break and finally look after her mixed race hair.
So she booked herself in for a braid session with the amazing hair stylist Errol Douglas MBE who gave her some gorgeous braids and his advice for taking care of her hair once she left the salon:
"Wear a SILKE London Hair Wrap around them to sleep (a silk scarf that helps keep the moisture in and stops friction between the braids and your pillow, preventing breakages, damage and frizz)."
Our founder Maria is of mixed Mediterranean and Caribbean descent and has always had difficult to manage hair, and as she says, "it would really knock my confidence."
With over 32 years’ experience as a hairstylist and every product, treatment and fad at her fingertips she still couldn’t find anything to combat her frizz, breakages and split ends.
Determined to find something that would, she developed The SILKE Hair Wrap. Inspired by the time tested tradition of wrapping hair and with the help of some amazing designers, she created a slip-on, slip-off 100% silk hair wrap to permanently fix the hair care problems faced by all women of all hair types.
"I want all women everywhere to feel that same confidence they feel when they step out of a salon chair, each and every morning."
