One of our customers called in to purchase a silk pillowcase after having battled leukaemia. She was worried about her hair growing back and wanted it to stay as healthy as possible. We received an email from her after having received our silk pillowcase, as follows:

Chemotherapy can temporarily damage the rapidly dividing cells in your hair follicles, causing hair loss. You may not only lose hair from your scalp, but also from your face and body. However, not all people receiving chemotherapy experience hair loss to the same degree, even when they’re undergoing the same treatment. And some people don’t experience it at all.
While hair loss can be one of the most emotionally difficult side effects of chemotherapy, it’s important to remember that it’s almost always temporary. Hair usually starts to grow back about a month to six weeks after treatment ends. It’s common for it to grow back a slightly different color or texture at first.
Here are some tips for dealing with hair loss:
If you decide on a wig or a hairpiece, have it ready before you begin treatment
As an alternative to a wig, you might consider scarves, baseball caps, or turbans, or simply leaving your head uncovered
As soon as you begin therapy, use a soft bristle brush and avoid brushing or pulling your hair too much. For instance avoid braiding or placing hair in a ponytail.
Use mild, gentle shampoo and conditioners, and gently pat your hair dry
