The Summer months mean hot, balmy nights. Pyjamas in natural fabrics, such as cotton and silk, are both breathable and comfortable, leaving you with a much more restful sleep. New Zealand brand, Penney + Bennett have just released their Cascades range of sleepwear, featuring 100 percent cotton fabric with a custom, hand-painted watercolour print of the native Ponga tree. With a focus on comfort, the range offers loose and relaxed fits, and comes in long and short-sleeved sleep shirts, drawstring pocket shorts and pants, smoking jackets and long robes. Great for long, lazy days at the bach or on the beach.
Knots be Gone
While we can all appreciate how great freshly washed hair feels, giving it a comb straight out of the shower can be a nightmare. A standard comb does not run smoothly through wet hair and we often risk breaking or damaging the hair when it’s at its most fragile. Luckily the team at Kent have given us a solution to save our hair. Their Double Row Detangling Comb is handmade in England with two rows of teeth, ideal for working through knots and combing conditioner through the hair. It’s made from a non-petroleum based plastic that works to stimulate the hair’s natural oils inside the hairs cuticles so they lay flat and create strong and healthy hair.
