“Cotton absorbs moisture, while silk retains it, so when you lie on a silk or satin pillowcase, the oils from your strands are maintained rather than soaked up, leaving your hair nourished rather than dry,” Jen Atkin, celebrity hair stylist and founder of Ouai products told Cosmopolitan. “This is especially beneficial for hair types that are prone to frizz, such as coarse hair types or girls who have wiry curls.”
However, while silk pillowcases can go for as much as $85 per case, satin ones can provide the same benefits for a fraction of the price. Amazon's best-selling satin pillowcase is only $9.99 (for two!) and has 12,000 reviews, garnering it 4.4 out of 5 stars.
Shop: Bedsure Satin Pillowcase (2-pack), $9.99
According to the Bedsure Satin Pillowcase's product description, it can help preserve a blow out, in addition to reducing hair breakage, maintaining moisturized skin and providing "a perfect slip and smooth texture to protect your skin against the facial sleep lines that could become deep wrinkles."
The Bedsure Satin Pillowcase is sold in packs of two and features an envelope closure to keep it put. It comes in standard, queen and king sizes, as well as 14 colors to match any and all of your current sheet sets.
One Amazon reviewer wrote about the difference she saw after using it: "I was originally looking for silk pillow cases, but decided to give these a try because they were a better price. I am not disappointed! I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair in the mornings and overall they are so smooth and comfortable to sleep on. I’ve washed them several times and haven’t seen a difference in the quality. I would buy again."
"These pillowcases are lovely, I'm so glad I made the switch from cheap cotton pillowcases to these satin ones," another satisfied customer wrote. "I got these since I have issues with hair breakage and I have noticed that I have less fall-out and frizziness when it comes to my hair. I also noticed that I don't wake up with a build up of oil on my face, which was a pleasant surprise. They feel cool to the touch and have the pleasant feel of silk, so it feels luxurious to lay down with these at the end of a long day. I'd highly recommend these, especially for the low cost."
In regards to comparing them to real silk, they stood pretty close for another Amazon reviewer who said "all the brands who advertise under the 'satin' or 'sateen' or 'silk' pillowcase category, represent that their products are, or 'feel like' silk, these pillowcases really do feel silky."
We could go on with the positive reviews, but it's probably best you just try it for yourself.
