Customer Review: “I was skeptical of this especially given the steep price tag. I've tried other so called "amazing" dryers that claimed to dry without frizz in half the time but were barely better than what I had. This just blew me away, it was a bit quicker, yes, but what's more impressive is that there's hardly any frizz. I don't have to kill my hair with the straightener to make it look smooth! Worth it! Buy it!”

Designed for the ultimate beauty sleep, this 100 per cent silk pillowcase helps prevent scratches and tugs on skin and grabs and twists hair, resulting in visible premature stretching, sleep creases, damaged hair, and bedhead by morning typically caused by traditional cotton pillow cases. Silk is hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and allows skin to breathe. Great for side sleepers with ageing and or acne-prone skin and for those with split ends.
Customer Review: “I am not someone who normally buys things like this; I usually consider it a luxury that I don't need. However, I am a stomach/side sleeper and noticed I was starting to lose my hair and have a lot of breakage on the side I naturally sleep on. After some research, I realized that my regular pillow case was probably causing some of the breakage. After using this pillow for almost two months, my breakage has decreased over 50 per cent.”
