When it comes to healthy hair growth, we tend to get so caught up in what products will give us luscious curls and lengthy kinks. But, the health of your curls also depends on what you do throughout your entire routine... including when you sleep. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase may give the impression of just wanting to be fancy but it has some real benefits for curly and kinky hair.
Silk Pillowcases Reduce Friction
Cotton fibers rub against the hair cuticle, causing unnecessary frizz and can also lead to splits in the hair shaft. Sleeping on our 100% silk pillowcase is a lot gentler on your hair as this material is soft and smooth, helping to keep the hair frizz and tangle-free.
Helps Retains Moisture
Let's be real... curly textures lose enough moisture as it is. It's up to our healthy hair care practices to make sure we retain as much as possible. Cotton pillowcases are super absorbent and can draw the natural oils and moisture from your strands, leaving your hair thirsty and in need of replenishing that moisture more often than you'd like. A silk pillowcase makes a huge difference as it is less absorbent than cotton, so the moisture stays in your hair where it belongs.
Helps with Length Retention
Dryness leads to split ends and ultimately, breakage. Once you get that moisture factor under control, your hair is less likely to break. So you'll notice that you're retaining the hair you grow and, over time, you'll actually notice the growth when regularly sleeping on a silk pillowcase.
Skin Benefits Too!
Sleeping on silk also has benefits for your skin. The same way a silk pillowcase reduces friction and dryness on the hair, it'll do just that for your skin. You'll see less wrinkles and creases on your face when you wake up in the morning and it won't be left feeling super dry!
