Life as a new mom is no easy task.
I went from blow-outs to mom buns in about two-point-three seconds. Mustering up the energy to style my hair multiple times a week is out of the question. I have a baby and she’s in a destroying-mama’s-condo phase right now. I just don’t have the time!
So, how do I get my hairstyle to last all week? If you have sat in my chair in the past nine years, you know the answer to that question.
Mulberry silk pillowcases!
It’s a simple solution to maintain my style with zero effort. It’s a staple in my beauty regime now more than ever and here’s why:
- LESS BREAKAGE: Cotton, polyester and other heavy fabrics disturb the cuticle by absorbing the moisture your hair needs to stay healthy. The coarse fibres also tug on each strand causing split ends. Dry hair and more pull results in weaker strands and more breakage.
- REDUCE BEDHEAD: Silk combats dryness and reduces frizz by retaining moisture in the hair cuticle. Its’ static-resistant protein fibres allow your hair to move freely, minimizing tangles and bedhead.
- CLEAN, HEALTHY HAIR: Silk regulates your body temperature keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Similar to workout gear, it wicks excess moisture and sweat, keeping your hair clean and dry overnight. It also reduces sebum production, preventing oil buildup on the hair follicle. That means your next shampoo can be postponed, minimizing the damage caused by harsh chemicals in the water.
- MamaTip: Make sure your pillowcase is pure Grade A Mulberry Silk and not polyester satin, the synthetic lookalike. Remember silk is measured by mommes (mm) of weight rather than thread count. Heavier silk is more durable and can be washed multiple times without tearing. I recommend a minimum of 22mm for bedding.
