At SILKE London we only use the finest 100% silk, and nothing else will do. This is because, not only is the surface of silk completely smooth, to ensure your delicate hair cuticles glide safely under its protection, but it is also far less absorbent than other materials too - so it won’t strip away precious moisture and natural oils from your hair like cotton or synthetic satins will!
Is The SILKE Hair Wrap right for my hair type?
The SILKE Hair Wrap is designed for EVERYONE. Whether your hair is short or long, curly, coils or straight, thin or thick, The SILKE Hair Wrap is designed to improve the health of all hair types.
How soon will I see the benefits of wearing The SILKE Hair Wrap?
We’ve had clients see results on day 1 and others after a couple of weeks. It can vary between hair types.
Before you treated yourself to The SILKE Hair Wrap, your hair may have been dehydrated and gasping for love, even if you didn't notice.
We encourage our clients to take before and after photos because we have no doubt that you will FEEL the difference, but know the proof is in the #SILKEselfie!
Wouldn't a silk pillowcase deliver the same results?
Whilst sleeping on a silk pillowcase is great for your skin, it doesn’t have the same overnight conditioning effect of The SILKE Hair Wrap. The SILKE Hair Wrap cocoons hair, encasing your precious natural oils rather than allowing them be lost on your pillow. This enables your natural oils to spread evenly from root to tip - acting as a naturally nourishing and deeply restorative conditioning treatment whilst you sleep. You no longer have to worry about dry brittle ends and oils are no longer concentrated at the roots, so greasy hair days are few and far between - lessening the need to wash!
As your hair is fully encased within the 100% pure silk wrap, not only does it prevent the abrasive friction that causes breakages and split ends, but it dramatically reduces bed head. Your hair is secured beneath The SILKE Hair Wrap and thus is less prone than a pillowcase to the movements that cause matting, tangling and frizz, saving you time as you won't need to restyle as often!
Will the silk not make my head hot at night?
The reason our hair wrap is so special, is because the SILKE Hair Wrap is made of 100% silk. Silk is a natural, breathable fabric, meaning it will not affect your temperature as you sleep.
How will the SILKE Hair Wrap benefit my curly hair?
It’s absolutely perfect for naturally curly and big hair, as hair wrapping is in fact a traditional afro hair care method! The reason our hair wrap is so special, is that the SILKE Hair Wrap is made of 100% silk, so it is able to retain essential oils and moisture that are so necessary for curly hair in particular, that other materials such as cotton (like most pillowcases) and satin absorb. By cocooning your hair in 100% silk in this way, the retained natural oils and moisture are able to distribute evenly along the entire hair shaft. Keeping curly hair well conditioned in this way means your curls will be more defined, shiny and bouncy. Not only will your hair be in better condition so your curls look better and healthier, but the SILKE Hair Wrap also protects from the friction, tangling and matting that occurs overnight that causes frizz and bed head come the morning.
How will the SILKE Hair Wrap benefit my thin / fine hair?
The SILKE Hair Wrap is extremely beneficial for fine hair. The 100% silk prevents the snapping and breakage caused by friction when sleeping that causes hair to look thinner. By cocooning your hair in 100% silk, the retained natural oils and moisture are able to distribute evenly along the entire hair shaft. Acting as a naturally nourishing overnight conditioning treatment. Preventing breakage and improving the health of your hair will all work to promote thickness and growth.
How will The SILKE Hair Wrap help me if I have hair extensions?
Hair extensions are attached with bonds that weigh down on the roots of your natural hair.
Wearing The SILKE Hair Wrap helps to alleviate the friction that tugs and weakens roots and bonds while you sleep, preventing matting and tangling and ensuring your hair extensions look better for longer.
