“You can avoid waking up with bed head by sleeping on silk pillowcases, cotton causes more friction and disrupts the hair cuticles.”
Charles Worthington, Leading London Hairdresser
“Long the secret of film divas, silk pillowcases prevent facial skin from creasing during the night. Silk allows the skin to glide along the pillow so the face rests comfortably without placing pressure on creased skin, effectively ‘ironing in’ wrinkles.”
Dr. Sobel, New York Magazine’s top Dermatologist five years in a row
“I always sleep on silk so that my skin glides rather than drags across the fabric, reducing the chances of wrinkles, particularly those in the nasal labial fold between mouth and nose”
Angelica Kavouni,Harley Street Plastic Surgeon
“Whether your hair is straight or curly, high quality silk pillowcases reduce friction, so your trip to the hairdresser lasts longer. Silk keeps straight hair straighter and blow-dries last longer."
Stylist Ellin Lavar, Instye
“People are very rarely allergic to silk. This is because silk is free of any potentially irritating added chemicals and contains natural substances that ward off various environmental allergens (and resulting skin conditions), including dust mites, mole, and fungus.”
Neal B. Schultz, Md, New York City Dermatologist
“Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase,
since the smooth material doesn’t disturb the natural flow of the curl.”
Philesha Alise Burris, Top Stylist, Devachan, LA
“Put your hair in a loose ponytail on top of your head before hitting the pillow, recommends Quintero. He is also a fan of silk pillowcases, which are said to reduce frizz."
