One of the main silk pillowcase benefits for your hair is due to silk being less absorbent than cotton and other pillowcase fabrics. When a fabric retains moisture, this means it dries slower and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and dirt. It also causes the hair to look dehydrated and dry, leading to bed hair and bad hair days.
Even if you don't notice it, cotton retains moisture, oil, sweat, and dirt from your face and hair, so when you sleep, it all goes back onto your skin and hair. This is why many people struggling with acne and skin problems switch to silk bedding and pillowcases.
Silk doesn't retain moisture as much as cotton and if it does, it dries much faster, which means no residue goes back to your hair and skin. You'll say goodbye to split ends, dry and dehydrated hair, and most importantly, bed hair.
There's a reason many high-end hair care products contain a real silk protein called sericin which makes the hair incredibly soft, silky, and healthy. Now you can enjoy the same benefits by choosing to sleep on a silk pillowcase made of 100% pure silk.
