Think of the sensation you get when you run your fingers along with a luxe piece of silk—it’s insanely smooth, right? Well, it just so happens to have the same effect on your hair, which is why you see silk and satin popping up in every hair accessory you can think of, even pillowcases.
Silk is good with the hair because it’s gentle and it allows the hair to move, unlike many other fibers and materials. Satin is also unique as it tends to be more absorbent, which promotes maintaining natural oils and keeping moisture in the hair.” To let your locks reap the rewards, add these silk and satin accessories to your arsenal.
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase won’t just make you feel like a princess—it’ll also do wonders for your hair. There’s a good reason plenty of pros recommend it to keep a blowout intact. “Silk has minimal absorbency, so using a silk pillow or hair cap will not absorb or transfer any of the hair’s natural oils,” explains Anita Sun, a hairstylist at Eliut Salon. “Second, it reduces friction. Using a pillowcase allows hair to glide as you move during sleep, or a silk hair tie will reduce any pulling or creases of the hair.”
“Hair is very sensitive, no matter what the hair type may be,” says Faith Huffnagle, Prose’s Director of Education and veteran stylist. “We spend roughly eight hours a night sleeping, so making sure our hair is in contact with quality fabric during that time is very important. Smooth fabrics like silk or satin encourage healthy, strong strands with less frizz and split ends.” If you’re still not sold, another reason to make the upgrade is that cotton pillowcases can eventually lead to wrinkles in your skin.
This accessory is all the rage right now, and it’s a trend we can get behind. Headbands are great for when you’re washing your face, doing a mask or skincare treatment or just as a fun accessory.
This is an accessory you can literally sport 24/7.
When you want to look glamorous and yet casual, wear a silk scarf.
Plus, since a silk wrap can keep a style in place, both in shape and texture, not only does it save time, but you won’t have to apply more hot tools to fix your style. That means less heat styling damage in the long run. Make sure to wrap your hair in a silk scarf properly.
Be mindful of the way you wear your hair. If it’s straight, start at your part combing in the direction you want the hair to fall. Pin against the head, looping around the whole head until all the hair is secured. If your hair is curly, leave it loose, tucked into the scarf. Or twist it into a loose bun at the base of the neck or on the top of the head. This will help curls maintain their shape.
To protect the roots, you can also wrap the scarf around the crown of the head, like a headband. Leave hair out and sleep on a silk pillowcase. This will keep the scalp from getting frizzy.

- My baby is 5 months old and always had good hair. Recently I have seen her hair has started to break. I asked many people and all say it's normal. Please advise.
There are many reasons for your baby's hair to break: friction on the hair when the headrests over cotton or any other high porous material, the protective style used are leaving part of the hair exposed, lack of proper conditioning and moisturizing, and last but not least: Sometimes breakage is your hair’s reaction to a styling product.
