Slipsilk™ Pillowcases, Turbans, and Scrunchies
Speaking of hair care – a holiday gift is the perfect opportunity to pamper your friends with items they wouldn’t get themselves. Slip pillowcases, silk turbans, and silk scrunchies are great examples of that! Simple yet helpful and comfortable, these accessories can help your hair stay in its best condition.
Beyond contributing to a cooler night’s sleep, silk pillowcases help in reducing friction in your hair while you sleep, preventing breakage and setting us up for a great hair day in the morning. If you’re looking for even more protection, silk turbans are the way to go.
For the daytime, silk scrunchies allow you to keep your hair out of your face without causing any damage (and also make great wrist accessories in between uses!).
At the end of the day, the best gifts are the ones that come from the heart – and we’ve created this list with that in mind. For yourself, your best friend, your stylist, or your mom… celebrate love and enjoy the holidays!
