Check out this season’s ultimate glamorous accessory for a lustrous locks. My absolute favourite find of the summer, Silke Hair Ties – made of 100% silk – keep your locks in control, yet do not damage or break them.
Unlike traditional elastics, the hair ties keep your pony-tail or ballet-bun secure, yet they prevent hair breakages and all the while keeping hair smooth and lustrous.
Founded by London hairstylist Maria Sotiriou, the ties are the second launch from the label. It first made its mark on the beauty industry with its innovative hair wraps. The uber-cool turban-style wraps, designed to repair, protect and prevent hair damage while you sleep (and which come in delicious rainbow of colours), took the beauty world by storm.
“The SILKE brand is about empowering women with products and advice that allow them to realise the potential of their own hair,” Maria says. “We believe that the beauty of hair is in its health. It doesn’t matter how much you steam, style, spritz and spray, there is no beating having naturally strong, shiny and voluminous hair. That’s why the foundation of our products is to improve the architecture of your hair so it looks amazing regardless of how you choose to style it.”
So, you’ll find that once you’ve secured hair you get none of that ‘hair feels too tight’ feeling. After releasing, hair retains its bounce and shine, due to the 100% softness that real silk gives.
“100% pure silk not only respects hair and reduces risk of breakage, but also helps to smooth and enhance shine so your locks stay strong, long and lustrous,” Maria continues.
Whether you choose ‘Cleopatra’ (classic black, shown here), ‘Coco’ (champagne-pink), or ‘Frida’ (rich, sumptuous jewelled hues), you’ll soon find that you can’t be without them for good hair days ever more.
