Reasons Why a Silk Pillow Case Is Good For Your Hair

There are many reasons as to why you should choose a silk pillow case instead of a traditional cotton pillowcase. Over the recent years, silk pillowcases have gained increasing popularity not only as a beautiful and opulent addition to your bed, but also as a beauty product for healthy and great looking hair. Here are the top three reasons why a silk pillow case is good for your hair:


Breathability
You spend a lot of time on your pillowcase at night. There is no other material that your hair is in contact with for so long as that of your pillowcase. Therefore, the properties of the material used in your pillowcase are very important for beautiful and healthy hair. The moisture-wicking property of silk is one of the features that make silk pillowcases a good investment in the beauty of your hair. Silk can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture - which in your case is perspiration - and still remain dry. Moisture will be wicked away from your hair for a comfortable sleep and keep your hair looking great longer.
Non-Irritating
Cotton pillows have a coarser texture that can cause your hair to break and tangle, matt, and get frizzy as you toss your head or rub it against the pillowcase every night. Unlike cotton, a silk pillowcase is made of perfectly smooth fibres. This means that sleeping on a silk pillowcase will cause no mechanical irritation to your hair. More importantly, silk fibres have a very similar structure with that of the human hair, containing 97% amino acids and 3% waxy and fat fibres. This helps reduce hair damage, such as split ends.
No Chemicals
Among the many wonderful properties of silk, you can include its chemical-free composition. This means that your hair will be healthier and happier when you sleep on a silk pillowcase.
Your pillowcase is one of the most important parts of your bedding as it stays in contact with your hair and skin for long hours. What more appropriate material to use for your pillowcase than silk, the most luxurious fabric on the planet? A silk pillowcase is a great investment that can offer you healthy, smooth looking hair, soft and hydrated skin, a comfortable sleep, and, of course, a luxurious feeling that no other man made material can match.
