Top 5 Best Silk Pillowcases of 2021
Are you a hot, lazy person who wants better hair and a better face? Of course you are [chest bumps], and of course you arrived half an hour late to this chat because you slept in. That’s alright, baby. That’s why the latest pillowcase wellness trend is for you (and those sweet, sleepy peepers).
Pillowcases have been popping off recently, and getting an upgrade from the sad, polyblend shams that defined most of our early twenties. “Silk pillowcases work wonders for all kinds of hair types and textures,” celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin told Refinery29, “as they keep the cuticle layer of the hair intact, and don’t cause the friction traditional pillowcases do.” Unlike summertime sleep fabrics like linen, silk and satin are also more apt to help your skin retain moisture. Babes are even sleeping on copper-infused pillowcases now to support skin renewal.
I am very into all of these ideas, personally, because fall has officially arrived, which means that my skin and hair will soon become as dry, salty, and potentially crusty as some oven-baked pumpkin seeds. So, yum—but, also, no. Reaching for pillowcase ~treatments~ also feels like letting someone else do the work for me while I unconsciously drool, which is sick. Think about it: When you sleep, you are ideally resting those sweet cheeks on a pillow for at least six hours. That’s a lot of incubation time.
Now, we’re not pillow doctors, and we’re not making any sweeping medical claims about these silky bois, but the following pillows and pillowcases offer some damn luxurious experiences for that sweet head of yours, whether they’re made of a honey-hued Mulberry silk, or spritzed with calming sprays, or smooth enough to use as a horny slip-n-slide.
Let’s get silky.
