Since 2003, Slip has been been known for its luxe silk products, adored by all, including hair guru Jen Atkin. Now its creators are launching a new line of affordable silk pillowcases, ensuring that everyone can have access to the beauty benefits of sleeping on silk.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Slip’s founder, Fiona Stewart, noticed there was high customer demand for a more affordable version of the brand’s product. “There’s a real need for this — since we launched in the U.S. there’s been a few silk pillowcase brands come on the [mass] market but they’re not shiny and soft,” said Stewart. Thus, the Hollywood Silk Solution was born—a completely separate brand of pillowcases with the same benefits of the original Slip Silk pillowcase, but at almost half the cost. Unlike Slip’s pillowcases, these versions are half cotton and half silk, which is how Stewart was able to cut down on the cost. So rather than forking over $79 for Slip’s silk pillows, you’ll soon be able to purchase The Hollywood Silk Solution for only $45. Which is pure genius, if you ask me. I mean how often do you actually use both sides of your pillow?
If you’ve never heard of the beauty benefits of silk, prepare to be amazed. For decades, women of color have used silk wraps to help keep their hair shiny and moisturized, and silk pillowcases have taken this beauty secret to new heights, as they also benefit your skin. Fabrics like cotton can tug at hair, causing breakage and sucking the moisture out of hair, while 100 grade A silk (which is used in these pillowcases) helps to reduce any friction or tugging of the hair and skin while you sleep. It can also extend your blowout and has been said to prevent the formation of wrinkles while you sleep. For these reasons, dermatologists and hair professionals often recommend the use of silk pillowcases.
