OsoCurly Satin Pillowcase | Product Review
If you have read my other blog posts, you will know that i am a huge fan of making sure that my hair is protected at night. Doing so, is something that was missing from my routine for too long!
I have tried satin scarfs, silk wraps, and satin pillowcases in the past but this is by far my favourite.
Where is it from?osocurly are a brand i came across on instagram. They offer a reversible satin pillowcase (black-gold), satin hair scrunchies, and a beanie hat which says "curly" on it. The brand was created in 2014 by one of my favourite instagram curlies uk curlygirl and aims to become a household name when it comes to helping us to protect our hair.
Using satin or silk on our hair has so many benefits:
- Less pulling of hair; which means alot less breakage
- Keeps moisture in hair; instead of the cotton soaking up any moisture you apply to your hair before bed, the satin allows your hair to slip and so stops it from drying out
- Its gentler on your face as well as your hair, and helps to keep skin happy
Satin pillow over silk scarf; whats the difference?For me, as much as i like the way that scarfs can be wrapped differently etc, i find that a pillowcase is much more convenient for me. I often found when using a scarf, that it would slip off in the night leaving all of my hair to be exposed to the cotton pillowcase i slept on.
I tried a bonnet, but i found that the elasticated edges were harsh on my edges, and this too came off during the night.
I got my first satin pillowcase from my mother in-laws house when she passed away. I had wanted one for a while, and my fiance gave it to me. I loved it. When i saw osocurly on instagram i couldn't wait to place an order.
I have to have my hair tied up for work, and i searched everywhere for a satin hair bobble. There is nothing better than taking your hair out at the end of a long 7.5 hour shift, but when you see hair wrapped around your bobble it ruins the bliss.
With this satin scrunchie, i have had a lot less breakage on my bobble (see my last blog post for information on breakage v shedding).
I only tie a bobble round my pony once anyway, and that's all you need for this one! It slides out of your hair effortlessly, and now i have one, i doubt I'll ever go back to normal bobbles. This one comes in pink, white or black so there's a good choice. I got black, as i only tie my hair up for work.
How long is delivery? And how much do they cost?The website says 2-3 working days for delivery, but mine literally arrived the NEXT day! I was so surprised when it came, and it was wrapped in a pink package which made it even more exciting to open. It stood out amongst other deliveries.
Satin Pillowcase £15.99
Satin scrunchie £3.99
Curly Beanie £10.00
Postage is around £3-4 as standard.
I think the prices are brilliant. As the pillowcase is reversible, its like having 2 cases instead of one.
What did you think?From the first night i slept on this pillowcase i was in love. It is softer than the one i had before, as it was designed BY a curly girl; FOR curly girls. She knew what she wanted this case to do and it does just that. I had the best nights sleep on mine, and when i woke up, my curls were still perfectly intact. I cant stop sharing posts on instagram encouraging people to get their hands on one.
I have been sleeping so much better since using this case, not having to worry about my hair being ruined, scarf slipping off in the night, and because t is so comfy!
If you haven't already, head over to the website and get yourself these, you will NOT regret it!
Well done UK Curly Girl on such an amazing creation!
