Why Curly Girls Should Use a Silk Pillowcase

Why Use a Silk PIllowcase

Got a terrible case of bedhead?

You’re doing everything right. Using the right hair products. Clocking 8 hours of beauty sleep. But when you wake up, there’s nothing beautiful about that bedhead. What’s a curly girl to do?

Take a look at your pillow case. It may be the culprit if it’s not made out of the right fabric – satin, or even better – silk.

Why You Should Use a Silk Pillowcase

  1. It prevents frizz. The fibers in a regular cotton case rough up hair’s cuticle.
  2. It doesn’t absorb the moisture from your hair since it’s less absorbent than cotton. Cotton absorbs moisture, while silk retains it, so when you lie on a silk or satin pillowcase, the oils from your strands are maintained rather than soaked up, leaving your hair nourished rather than dry.
  3. It eliminates face creases because it allows gliding motion due to low friction. Silk pillowcases are the sexy lingerie of pillowcases and are super-gentle on skin and hair — so they won’t leave sheet indentations on your skin when you wake up, and the fabric allows your strands to flow freely over it without friction.
