A few days back, I read a very interesting article about Kim Kardashian’s hair care routine. She mentioned that she only washes her hair once in 5 days. “We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flat iron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair,” she told Into The Gloss. “Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail, and on the fifth day is when you wash it.” In our hot and humid weather, this routine is definitely not practical but I was kinda curious to know how she manages to keep her hairstyles intact for five days. The answer was given by Kim herself. She only sleeps on silk pillowcases.
For the longest time ever, I’ve been hearing and reading about the benefits of sleeping on silk pillowcases. They are supposed to be beauty sleep’s secret weapon, keeping the skin soft and the hair, healthy and shiny. But do they really work? I got the opportunity to answer that question for you courtesy Dame Essentials, India’s first Anti-Aging 100 percent pure Mulberry silk pillowcase and sleeping mask brand.

There is nothing more luxurious than sleeping on silk. And it feels even better when you finally get to hug that pillow at 3 a.m after working till mid-night. After three weeks of test driving the Dame Essentials charcoal grey pillowcase in 100% mulberry silk, I can say that I’m addicted. My hair texture has improved. When i wake up in the morning, my hair does not look like a lion’s mane anymore but a lot smoother. The frizz has reduced to a great extent and I feel that there is more shine. I don’t blow dry my hair regularly but the couple of days that I did, I felt that the effect lasted longer than usual. This is due to the fact that silk reduces friction or pulling of hair so it makes the hair smoother and softer
I sleep on my stomach so invariably when I wake up in the morning, my face is all creased from pressing it on the pillow. A silk pillowcase ensures that does not happen so now when I wake up, not only my hair but my skin also looks smooth. I am hopeful that the pillowcase will ensure I remain wrinkle-free for as long as possible! Another effect I’ve noticed is that my face looks less puffy when I wake up and the skin feels a lot softer. So in a nutshell, do you need a silk pillowcase in your life? Oh yes girl you do! The thing really works!
Dame Essentials pillowcases are expensive but they are made of silk after all. The good thing is that they are 100% sustainable provided you take good care of them. When you order a pillow case from Dame Essentials, it comes in a luxurious dark black and gold box with a welcome letter, the product and instructions on how to wash, dry and iron your pillow case. Make sure you read that well!
