Nothing’s more frustrating than achieving the perfect curls for the day, tying them up to go to sleep, then waking up the next morning to see that your perfect creation is destroyed. If you’ve been sleeping on cotton pillowcases, then you know the struggle. But we’re here to tell you a little secret: silk pillowcases are the key to keeping those beautiful curls intact.
Silk pillowcases are a savior for curly hair because they promote the hair’s ability to retain moisture throughout the night. This better retention of moisture helps reduce frizziness and dryness, leaving curls exactly as they were. Another amazing benefit of silk pillowcases is that they're super soft and gentle to the touch. This is important because hair is able to gently move across the fabric as you sleep with no tugging or friction. This in turn lessens the chance of split ends and breakage.
If you’re ready to be on your way to pillow-soft, perfect curls, here are seven amazing options to consider!
