Top Questions About Silk Pillowcases
1. Can silk pillowcases prevent wrinkles?
Believe it or not, they can! A “smooth surface with very little friction” means less tugging on skin than with a traditional cotton pillowcase. We get ‘crush wrinkles’ from sleeping on our side/face, so we may get less of those when sleeping on silk. Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky smooth surface can reduce that effect in the long run.
2. Do silk pillowcases prevent frizzy hair?
Yes! Thanks to silk’s super smooth texture, hair glides over it without any friction which means you’ll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair, tangles, or bedhead, whereas cotton can snag hair and muss it up into a nest of tangles overnight. Sleeping on silk is a secret that women with textured and curly hair have been using for years to keep styles like braids and blowouts preserved for longer without adding frizz.
3. Do silk pillowcases keep skin hydrated?
Thanks to that super-smooth texture, this is actually true. Silk’s smoothness means it’s less apt to absorb moisture from skin, keeping skin nice and hydrated without zapping it of valuable moisture. That makes silk pillowcases great for anyone with dry skin (or for use in dry winter months).
4. Do silk pillowcases keep hair healthy?
In some ways, yes: They help keep hair hydrated, and that silk can help with brittle hair. Cotton is more porous than silk, so traditional pillowcases absorb moisture from your hair, while silk leaves that hydration right where it belongs: in your hair. That means if you suffer from dry strands or a flaky scalp, a silk pillowcase will be a godsend.
5. Can silk pillowcases regulate temperature?
Silk may not be the most cooling bedding option, but it certainly does regulate temperature. Silk fibers are inherently temperature-regulating. Unlike cotton, which absorbs moisture, silk wicks moisture away to keep you dry and cool all night long.
6. Can silk pillowcases prevent split ends?
The slippery smooth texture of silk will prevent tangles and frizz, but it can’t prevent hair breakage and damage altogether. Instead, try using a deep conditioner and getting regular trims to prevent split ends.
7. Write at the end, do silk pillowcases really make a difference?
Yes: Silk pillowcases can improve skin and hair hydration, prevent fine lines and wrinkles, and result in smoother, frizz-free hair every morning. If you’re ready to invest in a silk pillowcase, For top quality silk, look for a high momme (or ‘mm,’ which is the fabric weight) of 22 or more. Also look for Mulberry silk, which is the best silk type.
