Loving your Hair with Silk!

Loving your Hair with Silk!

Are you tired of waking up with dry, frizzy hair? I was, too, until I started using a silk pillowcase.

My cousin Jill shared with me that she was using a silk pillowcase and loved it, so I gave it a try, and WoW, what a difference it has made for my hair and skin too! I can honestly say I will not be using my cotton pillowcases again!

What is silk?

Silk a natural protein fiber from silkworms that is soft and breathable.

The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the silk fiber’s triangular prism-like structure, which allows silk cloth to deflect incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors. (1)

Several different insects produce silk, but, generally, only the silk of moth caterpillars has been used for textile manufacturing. (1)

Benefits of silk for your hair! 

When we move around in our sleep, our hair rubs against the pillowcase, causing friction that can lead to frizzy hair, tangles, and even breakage.

Silk pillowcases reduce friction and are not as absorbent of moisture as traditional cotton pillowcases; therefore, they can reduce frizziness and help you maintain moisture in your hair throughout the night. (2)

All hair types can benefit from silk pillowcases, but people with dry, fine, curly, or blonde hair may find a silk pillowcase especially helpful. (2)

Blonde hair tends to be more fragile, and curly hair tends to get frizzy with the friction of cotton. So, a silk pillowcase will help your hair ‘glide’ across the pillow instead. (2)

If you have oily hair or skin, a silk pillowcase may not be the best choice for you since a cotton pillowcase will absorb the oil better than a silk pillowcase.

Benefits of Silk for your skin! 

Anyone who invests in a nightly skincare routine will benefit more from sleeping on a silk pillowcase than a cotton one.

Less absorption from your silk pillowcase also means your serums and other beauty products will absorb into the skin, not your cotton pillowcase.

For those who suffer from dry skin or live in dry climates, extra overnight hydration can mean your skin stays more hydrated through the night, and you’ll wake up with a less tight and dry face. (3)
