Haircare Benefits Of Silk
We all have heard the expression- "SILKY SMOOTH".
I will tell you the real meaning of this expression today.
Smooth because of silk, not as smooth as silk.
Silk is known for its luxurious and irresistible smooth texture. Produced from the cocoons of mulberry silkworm, silk is a natural protein fiber and one of the strongest natural fibers.
Before we go into how silk makes the hair softer, won't it be interesting to see-
WHY IS SILK SOFT?
Every natural fiber has a rough exterior and a soft, thread-like structure inside. During the processing of raw silk, this rough, abrasive exterior layer is completely removed to get smooth fibers of silk. The smooth surface of this softer thread is also more reflective when light falls on it, and therefore shining and lustrous.
WHY FIBERS DAMAGE HAIR?
When hair comes in contact to natural fibers like cotton or even synthetic fibers, it feels FRICTION. Now, this is our hair's biggest enemy!
When our hair is pulled, rubbed and friction occurs, it results in the hair cuticles rising up, potentially eroding, and swelling. All of which can cause static, flyaways, tangling, and breakage setting us back in our quest for healthy hair and also make our hair harder to style and not look as healthy as it could. All the things we don't want to happen to our hair.
There are many sources of friction- excessive brushing, combing, styling, heat exposure and hair ties.
But, not using a hair tie and keeping your hair open is not a practical solution.
Neither is never styling your hair.
Klara has the perfect solution for a "no-friction" experience for your hair:
Our Silk curlers and scrunchies, made from pure mulberry skin.
You can style and tie your hair without worrying about any damage.
Our scrunchies are irresistible and look oh-so adorable. Their soft material is more gentle on the delicate strands around your hairline and doesn’t leave any kinks where your hairstyle has been.
Removing your silk hair ties is also another pleasant experience. With the silk you won’t experience pulling or broken hair around the tie, leaving you with healthier and stronger hair.
Don't just take my word for it, ask the Chinese!
The ancient Chinese were the first to cultivate silk, and it was at first considered to be a product that only the imperial family and dignitaries could wear and otherwise have access to. Why? Because it was pure elixir!
But thanks to the growth of sericulture (the cultivation of silk using silkworms), this luxurious and elite fiber is available to us. You don't have to be a Chinese princess to use it!
BENEFITS OF SILK:
1. NO FRIZZ
Due to silk's super smooth texture, hair glides over it without any friction which means you'll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair, tangles, or bedhead, whereas cotton can snag hair and muss it up into a nest of tangles overnight.
The plastic curlers are ever worse than cotton. The static and friction they create is harmful for your scalp and hair follicles. Instead, silk curlers will treat your hair gently.
2. NO DRYING
You might changing from a hair tie to cotton or synthetic fabric scrunchies, thinking that it's the shapes and no usage of a fabric that makes hair tie bad for your hair. But, the problem will not be solved. Cotton for example, is a good absorbent of moisture, so imagine how amazingly it will absorb all the moisture from your hair. All that conditioning and hard work gone down the drain, just like those brittle damaged hair.
So, that is why SILK! It will not rob your hair of its moisture.
3. NO SPLIT-ENDS
When you pull a hair tie out of the hair, the hair that you see stuck to the hair tie is just one half of the picture. Apart from that, it also breaks your hair from the middle and tips, eventually causing split ends. A silk scrunchie or a curler will not break brittle hair and let them heal and grow into thick hair.
