Whether your hair is long or short, you need one of these.
Whether your hair is thick or thin, you need one of these.
And whether your hair is curly or straight, you need one of these.
Simply put, if you have not experienced the splendor that is a 100% silk charmeuse pillowcase, you especially need one of these.
My hair story is nothing spectacular, but it is rather detailed (you can read the low-down here), and there isn’t much I haven’t tried with regard to either A.) keeping my hair healthy, and, B.) making sure it stays straight – both of which are no easy task for a girl with thirsty-dry Scary Spice-type locks.
I actually bought my first silk pillowcase back in 2005…by accident. Quick and – 100% true – story: Scott and I were long distance dating at the time (He lived in Jersey and I lived here in Michigan). He was set to fly in for a weekend visit, and I was looking to kick my bedroom décor up a notch, so I went out and bought a set of silk sheets (and scented candles, and, well, I’ll just stop there). At the time I wore my hair with quite a bit of volume on top, and, believe it or not, slept in jumbo Velcro rollers. (I must have looked ravishingly sexy at bedtime, I know.) Well, the first night we slept on the sheets, I fell asleep before I could roll my hair.
I awoke with a start at 4 a.m., suddenly mindful of the fact that my hair was roller-free. The horror! I thought. My hair must look jacked up from the back up!!! With a sleeping Scott next to me, I slithered out of bed, genuinely afraid of what my hair must have looked like, and made a bee-line for the bathroom...
And what I saw in the mirror made me both perplexed and relieved: My hair looked fine. In fact, it looked better than fine. It was perfect: No frizz, no indentation, and my hair was still sleek and soft to the touch, unlike when I’ve slept on a cotton pillowcase which, literally, zaps your hair of moisture while you snooze.
I've never used anything but a silk pillowcase since. Even when I travel, I bring my own to put over hotel pillows. And for the record, this pillowcase isn't too hot to sleep on, which is a concern some of you may have. Sleeping on this pillowcase is wholeheartedly different than sleeping on a complete set of 100% silk sheets. For one, being enveloped in silk sheets is what tends to make people hot -- this is only the pillowcase. And, second, silk charmeuse is different from traditional silk sheets in that silk charmeuse is an all-climate fabric; warm and cozy in the winter, and cool and soft in the summer.
Here are additional perks of sleeping on a silk pillowcase:
*Reduces the appearance of sleep lines and creases while reducing split ends and overnight hair damage
*Does not absorb moisture as cotton can…the moisture stays on your face where it belongs, leaving you feeling refreshed
*Extremely comfortable to sleep on
*Naturally hypoallergenic so it’s great for those with sensitive skin
