Natural Hair Gifts: Lifestyle

Maturing is realizing that investing in your bonnet and sleepwear is a luxury we all deserve.

Mulberry silk, the highest grade of silk on the market, is not only super luxurious but it plays very well with natural hair. At a molecular level, silk fibres are incredibly smooth and non-abrasive.

Cotton, on the other hand, is very abrasive, which can damage our coils and interfere with our moisture levels.

Purchasing mulberry silk products for the natural in your life is not only thoughtful but is incredibly useful for the everyday natural.

The best silk products a natural should have in their arsenal includes a silk bonnet and/or silk pillowcase, and a set of silk scrunchies (if they wear their hair in buns, ponytails or high puffs).
