On average, humans spend around one-third of their lives either sleeping or trying to sleep. No wonder we strive to make our sleeping experience as comfortable as possible! From cozy mattresses to nice pillows, we are always on the lookout for the perfect nighttime setup.
And although there are many tricks to make the best out of your eight hours, there’s one key aspect that is often overlooked: your pillowcase. Choosing the right fabric for your pillowcase can make or break your self-care efforts, so we’re here to let you in on a little secret: sleeping on a silk pillowcase has several benefits for your hair, skin and even your mood. Let’s delve deeper into some of them.
1. Say goodbye to frizz and tangles
Silk has an incredibly smooth texture, so it creates less friction than cotton pillowcases. This means you’ll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair and tangles. It also helps prevent breakage, so it’s every hair-care enthusiast's dream.
People with curly or wavy hair often sleep on silk pillowcases to reduce friction and keep their hair as frizz-free as possible.
2. Keep your hair (and skin!) hydrated
It makes no sense to throw money away on skin and hair products if your pillow is going to absorb all the moisture later at night. Silk repels moisture more effectively than other fabrics, meaning that it can help you retain it in your skin and hair.
It’s the perfect match for people who suffer from dry strands or a flaky scalp every now and then. So, if you dream of waking up every day to shiny and hydrated hair, silk hair accessories are the answer.
3. Wrinkle prevention
The smooth and easy-flowing surface of silk is the perfect ally for your skin-care routine. It prevents the creases and wrinkles caused by the friction from tossing and turning in our sleep. A silk pillowcase reduces that effect in the long run, helping you take better care of your skin and improve its appearance.
4. A luxurious feel
On top of all the hair and skin benefits that silk pillowcases have to offer, they can also fill your sleeping routine with a rich, luxurious feeling. Creating a smooth, cozy and enjoyable sleep experience can do wonders for your mood, especially if you enhance it with nice accessories. Silk is perfect to add that sophisticated flair.
With the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we often take sleep for granted. However, a proper sleeping routine in a comfortable environment can make a significant impact on our health and wellbeing.
