11 Reasons To Buy Silk Pillowcases Right Now
Are you a fan of getting your beauty rests? If so, silk pillowcases are absolutely godsend for you! The benefits are practically endless and they're a small investment to make if you highly value your nighttime rest.
But, what are silk pillowcases good for? Are silk pillowcases good for hair, too? Here are 11 reasons to buy silk pillowcases right now for your hair – and for the rest of your body, too!
1. It's hypoallergenic
silk pillowcases don't normally bring about allergies caused by mites, bed bugs, mold, and fungus, which you can usually encounter in cotton pillowcases.
2. It makes your hair smooth and tangle-free
The soft and smooth nature of silk pillowcases helps keep your own hair smooth and tangle-free, no matter how times you toss and turn each night. It's like waking up to a Brazilian blowout every single day!
3. It keeps your head cool at night
While cotton is usually the first choice if you want sweat-free sleeping experience, silk is actually a good option too! With silk pillowcases, you can stay cool all night and keep your hair and skin well-nourished.
4. It can promote healthy hair growth
Speaking of sweat-free, did you know that keeping your scalp fresh and clean can actually promote healthy hair growth? Too much sebum can weigh your hair down and drown your hair follicles, which can cause hair thinning and eventually hair loss.
5. It reduces split ends and frizzy hair
Friction caused by your non-silk pillowcases can damage your hair and cause split ends. Aside from that, you're running the risk of getting frizzy hair caused by friction too. By choosing a silk pillowcase for frizzy hair, you’ll do a huge favor to your locks.
6. It helps keep your face blemish-free
You know what is the one thing that you put your face near on a daily basis? Your pillows! Silk pillowcases are free from blemish-causing factors, unlike your regular cotton pillowcases that can trap a lot of dirt and dust in them, causing you to get pimples and acne.
7. It prevents your skin from getting wrinkles
Wrinkles are usually caused by the skin losing moisture and elasticity as you get older. Investing in a silk pillowcase can help prevent this, as it can lock in the moisture which your skin desperately needs.
8. It feels good to touch
Silk feels absolutely heavenly and soft and smooth and– seriously, it's something you have to experience yourself in order to understand!
9. Guaranteed natural
Since silk is naturally made from the special thread spawn out by silkworms that are bred and raised in captivity, there is little to no risk of chemical exposure. This is unlike most regular pillowcases on the market which are made using cotton plants that are harvested from a farm that could have potentially used pesticides or other chemicals. Remember, too much chemical exposure can harm your skin and hair, so try to avoid them as much as possible.
10. It's extremely easy to care for
Silk pillowcases are not as sensitive as they appear to be, at least when compared to your regular cotton pillowcases.
11. It's a great way to end a long and tiring day
Nothing feels better than laying on an ultra-soft, ultra smooth bedding after spending a long day doing errands, running chores, sitting in front of a computer, or walking around. For less than $100 you can experience this well-deserved luxury, so what else are you waiting for?
