The number one question asked when looking to invest in a silk pillowcase is "How do I wash my silk pillowcase?" or "Can I wash my silk pillowcase in the washing machine?"
Unlike silk clothing which is often manufactured using a light low momme silk fabric and requires dry - cleaning only, all of the Shhh Silk pillowcases and sleep caps are designed using a high grade silk fabric which means you are able to wash your Shhh Silk products in the washing machine. (Hallelujah - I hear you say).
Follow these simple steps to prolong the life of your silk pillowcase or silk sleep cap:
1. Turn your silk pillowcase inside out or place inside an old pillowcase or laundry bag to protect your silk during the wash cycle.
2. Place your silk pillowcase in the washing machine on a cold or warm delicate cycle with a maximum water temperature of 30C.
3. Use a laundry detergent that does not contain enzymes or bleach as this will damage your silk pillowcase.
4. Line dry out of direct sunlight.
5. Place straight on your pillow and enjoy your beauty sleep.
TIP: If you want your silk pillowcase to keep its natural silky shine we recommend hand washing your silk pillowcase for the first few washes before following our steps above.
Enjoy your beauty sleep.

Why should I invest in a silk pillowcase I hear you ask, what's so special about silk and why is a silk pillowcase so good for my hair?
When I first invested (yes I said invested, as a silk pillowcase is an investment into your daily beauty routine) in a silk pillowcase I was in my mid 20's. I had heard about silk pillowcases and their benefits specifically for hair through my hairdresser.
Getting my hair coloured and blow dried was expensive and in particular I wanted my blow-dry to last as long as possible, longer than the night of my visit to the salon! This is when I learnt the age old beauty secret to sleeping on a silk pillowcase.
FACT: Prior to sleeping on a silk pillowcase I would use my satin nightie as a pillowcase and put my pillow inside, as you can imagine this wasn't very appealing nor practical.
One of the first benefits I noticed about sleeping on a pure silk pillowcase was that my once malting hair was no longer malting on my pillowcase each night.
This is because unlike cotton, silk does not create friction between your hair and the pillowcase pulling at the roots causing breakage and split ends.
As my hairdresser had discussed many times before my blow dry was now lasting up to 4 days longer than it previously would.
Having a natural wave to my hair I used to find that even after a blow dry if I slept on a cotton pillowcase my natural wave would somehow find it's way back into my hair by the morning, since sleeping on a silk pillowcase and often even sleeping with a silk sleep cap on this is no longer the case. I can wake up with salon ready hair (which is perfect for a busy working mum) and no longer find myself using my GHD hair straightener each day.
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase has become hands down my number 1 most important daily beauty routine.

Momme(mm) is used to measure density of silk fabrics and provide understanding of the quality in a silk fabric. If a piece of silk with the dimensions 100 ft, (30.5 metres), by 45 inches(1.1 metres), weighed 22 pounds (9.7 kg), then the density of the silk fabric would be 22 momme.Read More
