New silk pillowcases ‘improve quality of your hair’

no comments

A new range of pillowcases claims to have a whole host of benefits for your skin and hair.


SILKUP launched the silk pillowcases last month following the success of its Luna silk hair wrap.


The smooth texture of the fabric has been found to improve the quality of hair; reducing thinning, split ends and frizz.


The natural properties and anti-static qualities in silk can reduce friction on the hair, extending the life of a blow-dry by two days according to SILKUP, reducing the need to restyle in the morning and therefore avoiding any additional heat damage.



Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, which can help reduce the symptoms of allergies, repelling bed and dust mites, dust, pollen and other airborne allergens.


SILKUP’s vision is to transition the world towards zero-waste hair and beauty products through their high quality, innovative products designed to help reduce the number of products needed on your hair and skin.


‘Natural moisture’


SILKUP founder Nichola Stott said: “Sleeping on silk is a great way to help your skin maintain its natural moisture. Not only does it feel luxurious against your skin, we have found we save money on the skincare products we use as our skin is able to retain more moisture.”


The silk pillowcases are constructed with high grade 19 momme mulberry silk, using nontoxic dyes. They come with a concealed zipper fastening to keep your pillowcase in place all night long and hidden so that it won’t snag on your hair.


They come in a standard European size 50x75cm and are available in three colours. Each pillowcase costs £58 and is available to purchase from SILKUP’s website.
