There are many reasons why you should choose a silk pillowcase instead of a traditional cotton pillowcase. Over recent years, silk pillowcases have gained increasing popularity, not only as a lush and opulent addition to your current bedding, but also as a beauty product for great looking hair and health. Here are the top three reasons why a silk pillow case is great for your hairdo and style:
You spend about a third of your life in bed lying on your pillowcases. There is no other material that your hair has direct contact with for so long as your pillowcase. The material used in your pillowcase is therefore very important to obtain healthy and beautiful looking 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, for example your perspiration, and still remains dry. Moisture is wicked away from your hair providing you with a comfortable nights sleep and it keeps your hair looking healthy, shiny and non-frizzy for longer.
Cotton pillowcases have a coarser texture, which may cause your hair to tangle, break and become frizzy when you move your head around or rub it against the pillow each night. Unlike cotton versions, a silk pillow case is made of smooth and perfectly formed fibers. This means that resting on a silk pillowcase will not cause any irritation to your locks. Silk fibers have a similar structure to human hair, containing 97% amino acids and 3% waxy and fat fibers. This helps reduce hair damage, such as split ends and also stimulates hydration, giving shinier hair.
Among the many amazing & wonderful properties of silk, you can include the chemical-free composition. Our 100% mulberry silk is manufactured in a controlled environment without any chemical exposure. While cotton pillowcases are produced from chemically treated crops, the silkworms that produce SilkKiss silk are fed with mulberry leaves that wont use pesticides nor any other chemicals to grow. This means that your hair will be much happier and healthier when you sleep on your silk pillow case. A silk pillowcase is one of the most, if not THE most important part of your bedding as it stays in contact with your hair and skin for about a third of your life. What better material to use for your pillow case than 100% pure silk, the lushest and most luxurious fabric in existence? A silk pillowcase is a fantastic investment which can offer you smooth and healthy looking hair, soft and hydrated skin, a comfortable beauty sleep, and, naturally, a most lush feeling that no other manmade fabrics can match.
