5 Reasons Why You Should Be Sleeping on Silk
Did you know you can revitalize your beauty routine with one simple change? If you're not already in the silk pillowcase fan club, check out our five favorite benefits below.
1) Increases Moisture
Cotton is meant to absorb moisture and it will do that with your skin and hair. Hair and skin that lack moisture appear frizzy, dull, and static. Silk fibers stimulate hydration in your skin and hair and reduce excess sebum production. This helps more evenly distribute oils making hair shinier and more nourished.
2) Prevents Fine lines and Winkles
Overtime small tugs caused by your cotton-blend or jersey-blend pillowcase add up. Silk, being a smoother fabric, causes less friction and pulling on your skin. With the above mentioned hydration, silk kills it in the anti-aging category giving your skin a smooth surface for your sweet dreams.
3) Prevents Breakage and Split Ends
Trying to go long? Maybe you're just sick of watching your brittle hair break? The retained moisture in your hair creates a stronger follicle. That lack of pulling and tugging also does wonders; unlike it's counterparts, silk doesn't tug at hair. When hair is stronger and not being tugged around, there is less breakage, split ends, and ridiculous bed head moments.
4) Prevents Frizz
Hello answer to second day hair! Hydration isn't just good for keeping dull, overly greasy hair at bay. Silk helps with frizz and fights crazy bedhead. You know when you go to sleep on a silk pillowcase, you're going to wake up with beautiful hair. With its ability to evenly distribute oils and its gentle nature, silk tames frizz making it a great choice for second day hair. It's ability to reduce frizz can also prolong keratin smoothing treatments and even your most recent blowout.
5) It's Hypoallergenic
Silk is completely natural and hypoallergenic. Silk has a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mold. This means silk does not retain as much pore-clogging bacteria. Additionally, these days silk is made from domesticated silk worms with little exposure to chemicals. Switching to silk reduces your chemical exposure.
