Shampoos, conditioners, and styling products are important parts of hair care…but it doesn’t stop there, especially for women who are serious about taking excellent care of their hair. If you’re truly dedicated to taking your haircare game to the next level you need to think about the fabrics you use on your hair, and these specific hair care needs. Let me put you up on game!
I personally prefer to sleep on a silk pillowcase, because I can’t keep a headwrap on at night to save my life. There are said to be multiple benefits of sleeping on silk. According to this Stylelist article, sleeping on silk pillowcases can help to “prevent sleep wrinkles” and stave off further effects of aging. And the slippery soft surface of silk is supremely gentle on your hair. The Branche Charmeuse Case is my favorite — since I started sleeping on it, I’ve noticed my hair is less matted when I wake up, and my hair even looks shinier. Branche pillow cases cost $75, and in general prices for 100% silk begin at $40 online.
When you get out of the shower, you might want to reconsider using a regular terrycloth towel on your tresses. If you wear your hair natural, or have curly hair, regular towels can make your hair frizzy. The Curlease towel is ultra thin, but ultra absorbent. Use it to blot the water out of your hair after washing it, and you’ll see your curls are frizz free. It retails for $19.99.
If you want to wrap your hair up post shower and live the lounging life like Joan Collins, then I recommend the Wrapadoo. It’s a super soft towel that wraps over your head, to keep your wet hair wrapped up and tangle free post-shower. And it comes in different colored cheetah patterns, skulls and bows, and classic colors like turquoise and powder pink.
