An online shop for luxurious silk pillowcases, sleep masks and scrunchies.
Rahel Zerihun, the founder of Baraki, decided to start Baraki because she always had trouble sleeping with a head scarf or bonnet. It would never stay on all night or she would wake up with a headache and marks on her head because it was wrapped too tight. She wanted to invest in a product that would keep her hair in perfect shape, and she realized that silk products are perfect for this.
Everywhere you look, people are wearing silk dresses and tops, they have silk scrunchies in their hair and some are even sleeping on silk pillowcases. Want to know what the hype is about? We’ll explain.
Silk products have so many amazing benefits for your hair and skin. It is a hypoallergenic material — meaning it doesn’t attract dust mites and naturally repels fungus. Silk pillowcases are also far gentler on your skin than cotton pillowcases. So, if you struggle with acne or sensitive skin, you may want to switch out your pillowcase for a silk one.
Did you know that silk pillowcases also absorb less of your facial products? We spend so much time, energy and money on our skin — don’t let your pillowcase absorb all those expensive products! As for your hair, aside from looking shiny and sleek, a silk scrunchie can actually help your hair. Silk cuts down on the amount of friction and tension that’s associated with traditional elastics, making them an ideal hair accessory for those with damaged or weak hair who are looking to minimize breakage.
