Recently I've heard so much about how using a silk pillowcase can take your hair care to the next level! Well, I've decided to investigate! The added bonus I found once I started researching, is sleeping on a silk pillowcase also does amazing things your skin! So this is a double-duty beauty tip!
According to Essence.com this is the best that beauty sleep has to offer. The majority of us use a cotton pillowcase, which isn't a bad choice. But, Cotton is a material meant to absorb moisture, and it's usually colored, meaning it contains dye. Sleeping on this type of pillowcase, will create friction when your head moves in sleep. This can ultimately result in broken hair and damage to the hair follicle, creating more frizz and less shine. On the other hand Silk is a material that will allow hair to slide around more smoothly so your will have less breakage and no more bed-head! Can't go wrong there!
Additionally, your skin and complexion can benefit from a silk pillow. Because the silk is smooth and soft, you'll wake up with less irritated skin, sheet wrinkles and more hydrated skin and hair. Plus, silk breathes better than cotton — so your pillow will be cooler.
With all these reasons! I'm on board. Switching my pillowcase ASAP!!!
SILK does the following:
- Keeps your skin healthy
- Keeps your hair and skin hydrated
- Reduces your chemical exposure
- Is naturally hypoallergenic
- Makes you feel luxurious sleep!
