The Real Deal on Silk Pillowcases - Are They Truly Worth It?

Yes, silk pillowcases are worth it and here is why...

Once a well-kept secret of beauty industry insiders, silk pillowcases have gone mainstream. Beauty bloggers and experts everywhere are weighing in and touting the benefits of sleeping on silk.

But are silk pillowcases really worth it? We get asked that question several times a week. And we always answer, "Absolutely!" We say this not just because we sell silk pillowcases, but because we sleep on them ourselves. At Mulberry Park Silks, we are true believers, and we simply love talking up the beauty benefits of silk.

Tame Your Tangles

Let's start with hair. Whatever your hair type, if you wake with a head full of tangles, you can blame one thing: friction from your (probably cotton) pillowcase. Trust us, we've been there. After years of battling hair that looked like a well-used bird's nest every morning, we swapped our cotton pillowcases for silk and woke to a brand-new look...smooth, silky, and tangle-free. With a silk pillowcase, hair glides across the surface no matter how much you toss and turn.

Along with snagging tender tresses, cotton also robs hair of essential moisture. Remember, cotton is known for being absorbent. This means cotton pillowcases actually act like a reverse conditioner, especially on coarse, curly, or wiry hair. Think about all the money and time you spend working to nourish and condition your hair, only to have it undone overnight by your cotton pillowcase! It's time to switch to silk.

Put on Your Best Face

Silk pillowcases are also great for your skin. As we noted above, sleeping on a silk pillowcase greatly reduces friction, which minimizes dreaded sleep creases and wrinkles. Silk -- which is protein-based and breathable -- also helps skin retain essential moisture; in contrast, cotton can dry out delicate skin, undoing the work of even the best moisturizing cream. Silk is hypoallergenic, non-irritating, and -- every bit as important -- feels fabulous against your skin. It's the very definition of sleeping in luxury and comfort.

In fact, a silk pillowcase is one of the best beauty investments you can make. And it doesn't need to break the bank.
