Silk pillow cases are simply awesome. That may seem a little bold, but we here at TBSP think they are the greatest material you can find to lie your weary head against at the end of a long day. In our humble opinion there is no better way to ease off into dreamland than by resting your heavy head on comfortable pillows encased in silk pillow cases.
Silk Pillow Cases Are Hypoallergenic
Due to the small areas between the individual threads there is not that much space that allows dust and other allergens to sit and irritate your skin, your eyes, or your nasal passages. Additionally, the smooth nature of silk allows many of the things that may hide in traditional cotton pillowcases to simply glide away, leaving you to sleep and breathe easier through the night than may be possible on cotton.
They Are Less Absorbent Than Cotton
One of the properties of cotton is its ability to absorb many times its weight of a liquid. Silk doesn’t do that. It is absorbent, yet its absorbency is about 11%. That means it will absorb some sweat and face cream, yet not nearly as much as cotton. What this means is your face will stay moisturized for longer than with cotton or linen. In other words, sleeping on silk pillow cases can actually make your skin look better and younger over time than it would if were you sleeping on a cotton pillow case.
Silk Pillow Cases Are Great For The Hair
Say the word “silk” and it will evoke certain images in a person’s mind. One of the most common is the smooth way that silk allows things to glide over its surface. That inherent “silkiness” that silk has is apparent in silk pillow cases as well. What this means for you is waking up with your hair looking far nicer than any comparable pillow case on the market. It also means your hair will suffer far less damage during the night. This is great news for people with naturally brittle hair or hair that has been damaged by over treating.
Cool And Silky Smooth
Silk pillow cases are renowned for their silkiness. Of course this is a result of them being made from silk. Why is this good for sleeping? The finest cotton may seem rough and irritating by comparison after sleeping on a silk pillowcase. Silk’s smoothness and coolness during the night are benefits that are easy to tell night after night. It may be difficult to tell if your face looks younger or your hair is in better condition after sleeping on a silk pillowcase for just one night. But laying down on silk pillow cases, you can instantly feel how cool and silky smooth they are. This is something that must be felt to be believed.
Silk pillow cases are truly awesome for many reasons, some of which have been explained here. Not everyone will like them, or love them as we do. Not everyone will see the benefits in younger looking skin or healthier hair – they are only one factor in the beautiful skin and hair. But everyone should try sleeping on a silk pillowcase at least once in their life. Maybe then they will see the awesomeness of silk pillow cases.
