Sleeping on a Silk Pillowcase Is the Best Thing I Ever Did for My Hair and Skin

Universal History Archive

I love to sleep. A lot. I’ve written about it to the point of no return and if you ever happen to bump into me on the street, I’m sure I will update you on whether I’m sleeping or not, and the latest ritual I’ve added to my nightly routine.

Until recently, I’ve essentially been sleeping on and under a rock. I was gifted a silk pillowcase by a friend and now I’m a completely different person. My taxes are done (this is true but unrelated), my skin is cleared, and my hair has never been shinier.

Please let me tell you about my best friend, the Slip silk pillowcase. From the good people that brought us the silk eye mask comes this dream product. Available in only the standard queen size (for now) and made from the highest grade mulberry silk, it is my everything right now. For those wondering what in the world mulberry silk is, it’s the highest quality of silk you can buy. One would say, it's fit for a queen (-sized pillow).

Silk pillowcases are nothing new. They’ve been around for a long time and boast to and has properties including natural resistance to dust, fungus, mold, and other allergens. Not only am I feeling better, but I'm also looking better. Here's how.

Let’s talk about my hair….

My hairstylist has been telling me to wear a silk scarf, bonnet, or something (anything!) for years, and yet year after year I let her down. Right after my appointment, I’ll try to live the dedicated hair scarf lifestyle and join the millions of women of color across the country who are on the right side of hair history. My silk pillowcase is the perfect step in the right direction. Not only does the silk prevent kinks from forming and tame flyaways, but the silk has cooling properties for the hot summer nights about to come.

Overall my hair looks shiny and feels so much better.

Let’s talk about my skin…

I have sensitive skin and can break out very easily. If I hold the phone too close to my head, I suddenly break out. Blame my bi-weekly sheet-washing habits or my skincare routine not doing its job, but the real culprit is my old (and busted) cotton pillows. With silk pillows, I never have to worry about the cotton soaking up my skin’s moisture and in turn breaking me out. I don’t wake up with weird lines or wrinkles because of my nightly movement habits, and it’s helped reduce redness in my skin the most. I’m prone to redness and irritation, but silk is the lightweight option that doesn’t rub and tug at my poor pores as I sleep.

Let’s talk about my sleep….

All of my favorite romantic comedies and princess movies somehow involve a silk pillowcase. 13 Going on 30? Silk pillowcases! Sleeping Beauty? It must have been silk if homegirl could sleep that long. Something about the luxurious fabric makes me drift away and start really thinking I’m a queen and not just in a queen-sized bed. I also get really hot when I sleep, and the silk prevents me from sweating too much. You know the saying, “You’re cool, like the other side of a pillow”? It should be updated to: “You’re cool as a silk pillow.”

You can shop my specific Silk Pillowcase above but here are a few cases below that all the opinionated Amazon users love.

What people are saying: "One of the best prices for the value for silk pillowcases I've found. Very good material and I LOVE the zip closure so they don't ever start to come off the pillow. The navy is a beautiful color and the silk really helps with my skin and also helps the hair around my face to not get frizzy from tossing and turning."

What people are saying: "This is my third 100% silk pillowcase (all from different sellers here on Amazon) and all have been great quality. I honestly intend to buy one of these for every woman I ever liked. You sigh and smile contentedly into your pillow at least 12 times per night because they feel so amazing, and the improvement you feel it has on NOT giving you face wrinkles...well...you will apologize to your poor face constantly for all the years you dragged it along a scratchy cotton surface all night long. Don't blame yourself. You didn't know. Just give nothing else away as gifts to your mothers, daughters, friends, and curly-haired coworkers and they will hold you on a mental golden pedestal as "Queen Of the Gift Givers" for the rest of their days."

What people are saying: "I am VERY happy with this pillowcase — the fabric feels substantial, silky and I don't see the lines/creases on my face anymore. I also received a similar quality silk pajamas about the same time as I started using this pillowcase and I noticed that I don't get the night sweats as much or to the same degree as before and I am sure it has the same effect on the skin of your face by helping to disperse and dissipate the heat."
