Satin is a vegan textile – which is great news for your hair and skin!
On a side note, you have to be careful with textiles! Ensure to do your research before bying some new jacket/pair of shoes, etc. Knowledge is power!
Back to the satin pillow cases! I originally read online that it would help tame my wavy/randomly curly hair, and at around 11$ for two pillow cases, I figured it would be worth the risk.
So why try a silk pillow case over a standard cotton, bamboo, or other?
After sleeping on a silk pillow case, I have personally seen the following benefits:
- Less split ends
- Fuller hair
- More manageable hair overall
- More balanced and healthful skin
- No more “pillow lines” on my face (which could mean less wrinkles in the future!)
- A lot less of a wild bed head
I personally change my pillow case 1-2x a week. I have heard all kinds of speculation on how often you should change your pillow case, ranging from every day to maximum once a week. It is important you keep your pillow case fresh to avoid build up and other bacteria from making a cameo in the way of breakouts, etc. :-S
Let me know if you’ve tried this – and what, if any benefits, you’ve seen/heard about satin pillow cases! 🙂
