Beauty Therapist Talks Silk Pillowcases & a Charity Update

For someone with such a busy life style, blowdrying and straightening my hair every morning just isn't practical; 
I need to wake up and be ready to face the day whilst not looking like a rag-doll. 
Sleeping on Silk reduces frizziness and tangles, allowing you to wake up looking fresh. Sleeping on silk is also great for your skin because it doesn't pull and stress to your skin, which causes unnecessary wrinkles which you may have noticed happening sleeping on some cotton cases.

Silky smooth hair with Silky Kisses

We care about your Hair!

Wearing a silk hair scarf or silk bonnet to bed isn’t as common as it once was. It was once seen as the simple way to keep your hair beautifully smooth while you slept.

If you don’t fancy the Lucille Ball look then sleeping on a Silky Kisses silk pillowcase will have the same effect along with add a bit of glamour to your bedroom.

Silky Kisses has 20 beautiful silk pillowcase colours to choose from to suit every taste and bedroom. You can view the catalogue here.

The benefits of sleeping on silk have been passed down from generation to generation. Lucille Ball wasn’t wearing this bonnet as a fashion statement, it was the ritual of many women before they went to sleep.

Sleeping on silk has many benefits for your hair:

  • It allows your hair to move freely. Cotton pillowcases cause your hair to bunch, knot, frizz and break. Sleeping on the soft smooth surface of silk is much less damaging to your hair as it allows hair to slide.
  • Silk doesn’t strip the moisture from your hair. It has one of the lowest absorption rates meaning it’s the best option for leaving the moisture in your hair where it belongs. Say goodbye to dry hair and split ends!
  • Sleeping on silk can help to preserve and maintain your hairstyle. The hair treatment and blow-dry you paid all that money for will last a few extra days sleeping on silk.

Silky Kisses silk pillowcases are an affordable piece of luxury that will save you time and money in haircare products and visits to the salon. We treat ourselves to a massage, a facial or even a holiday, so why go another day with bed hair and split ends when you can be sleeping on silk.

The profits from Silky Kisses silk pillowcases go to The Fistula Foundation. This foundation supports underprivileged women with an obstetric fistula from childbirth. They don’t have the means to have the surgery and often go without to provide for their children. Silky Kisses is donating all the profits from its sales to ‘treat’ these women to lifesaving surgery.

Treat yourself, your hair and other women by purchasing a Silky Kisses silk pillowcase.

Have a great silky smooth hair day,

Snuggle up with your silk pillowcase to keep warm. Silk is an amazing natural fibre that has the ability to keep us cool when it's warm and warm when it's cool. Your silk pillowcase will be perfect to use all year long, plus is great to cuddle on those cold nights.

Open Fires

They are cosy and warm, especially when you’re cuddling up to your Silky Kisses silk pillow in front of them.  Don’t worry, silk is difficult to burn so your silk pillowcase will be safer around fires than acrylic fabrics.

Thread Count Tips for Silk Pillow Cases

You probably have noticed another word ‘momme weight’ being used to describe our luxurious silk pillow cases.

You’re in the market for something new and special for your bed.. but often people can get confused as to why we don’t state a specific thread count number on our silk pillow case. Many people think that a thread count is the only way to determine quality of a fabric and that the higher the number, the better the quality.

Silk products are valued by its momme weight rather than thread count.

Standard cotton and polyester pillowcases use thread count to describe its quality, and it can get confusing for customers who are used to this perception to describe fabric quality. A high thread count means a stronger weave which increases durability which is important for bedding.

Standard cotton and polyester pillowcases use thread count to describe its quality, and it can get confusing for customers who are used to this perception to describe fabric quality. A high thread count means a stronger weave which increases durability which is important for bedding.

Unlike cotton and polyester, silk is a natural fibre which is protein and amino acid rich. The strands are spun together to create silk threads which are not uniform in size and thickness because each silk worm creates its own individual strands when they create their cocoon. This means each thread is different in width and in weight.

The heavier the thread, the more luxurious the fabric will be as it is thicker and more durable.

 

 

Our heads are quite heavy and can push along the surface of the fabric while we sleep, this is why it's important that your silk pillow cases are as thick as possible, not only is this more luxurious and cushioned to sleep on but it's also much healthier for your facial skin as it presses against your pillow while your dreaming.

If you’re someone who is conscious of small wrinkles appearing on the sides of your face and eyes in the morning, a silk pillowcase is a beauty basic.

Sleeping on silk is known to help diminish these mouth wrinkles or 'sleep creases' while you’re resting. 

If you use cream on your face while you sleep, the silk will actually promote absorption so your skin can literally suck the ingredients in, rather than wipe them off like cotton pillowcases do, making this product a 2 in 1.
The skin is the body's largest organ so whatever is touching your skin, you need to know that it is safe and promoting good health.

Silky Kisses uses 100% mulberry silk charmeuse at 22 momme.

We pride ourselves on our high momme and quality silk product so you can sleep easy knowing you will have a healthy nights sleep.

Our next blog will share more about momme weight, including what the difference is between a good and a bad momme weight and why Silky Kisses chooses to use 22 momme for the most luxurious, delicious sleep you’ve ever had.

If you’re interested in feeling a silk pillow case for yourself head to our catalogue and choose your favourite colour. Your own little luxury can be on your bed within the week.
