Some of which you probably weren’t aware of.
The Problem With Cotton Pillowcases
Classic cotton makes great workout gear and bath towels, it’s not the best material when it comes to pillowcases. In fact, the reason it makes such a great fabric for the gym or bathroom turns out to be the reason it’s not suitable for your bedroom at night. It actually pulls moisture away from your hair and face. Dehydrated hair tends to be coarse and brittle, and dry skin can lead to premature fine lines. Cotton pillowcases can also cause acne because they aren’t smooth enough for your face to slide across with no resistance. For people with acne, friction can be a big deal, it causes lesions to open and spread bacteria to the pillowcase. At OrganiGrowHairCo we recommend our satin pillow cases as part of a complete home care regimen.
What Is Satin?
Satin is actually a weave and not a natural fiber like silk. Fiber is the actual thread from which the material is made and weave is how you make it. Traditionally, satin will have both a glossy side and a dull side. It is made using combinations of other fabrics like nylon, rayon, polyester, and even silk. which is a man-made luxury fabric (polyester) from finely woven material.
Satin allows your face to slide on the pillow as you shift throughout the night. Those deep lines on your face caused by cotton pillowcases will eventually cause wrinkles over time. If dry skin has been a skin concern, sleeping on satin will help keep skin’s moisture. Cotton absorbs the skin’s natural oils which leaves the face feeling dry. Satin will not absorb your skin’s natural oils and keep the skin looking smooth and hydrated.
Sick of dull, frizzy, and dry hair? Ditch the cotton pillowcase for a satin one. Cotton robs moisture not just from your face, but your hair as well. Since satin does not absorb moisture.
Bye, Bye, Breakage
Cotton pillowcases are rough on hair because of the friction created between the pillowcase and your hair. This rough friction results in unnecessary breakage and damage to hair. Since satin allows the head to glide easily, there is no friction to cause breakage. Extend the time between trims by sleeping on a satin pillowcase.
