How Does Silk Help Hair?

December 02, 2019

With all this talk about sleeping on silk, sometimes it’s hard to keep your facts straight. Though it might be common knowledge that silk sheets and pillowcases benefit your skin and hair, you might not know exactly how. If you’re tired of waking up in the morning with bedhead, you might want to read up on just what switching to a silk pillowcase will do for your hair.

Goodbye Split Ends

Silk’s natural properties, like its smooth surface, helps reduce friction on your hair while you sleep. Friction often leads to split ends, knotting and hair damage. The smooth texture of silk allows hair to glide over it as you rest, reducing frizz, tangles and the dreaded bed head. While other fabrics like cotton snag your hair, hair gurus and stylists have long used silk to hold up hairdos like perms, blow outs and braids for longer without added frizz or stress.

Silk is also a cleaner surface to sleep on. Cotton is very absorbent, meaning it collects dirt and oils, exposing you to them as you rest. This also means cotton will strip your hair of natural oils and therefore dehydrate your hair while you sleep. Sleeping on silk allows your hair to lock in more moisture, keeping the natural oils intact and not adding other unwanted residue from previous nights.

Hello, Healthy Hair

Silk pillowcases make for a healthier head of hair, especially when added to your nightly routine. Silk keeps your hair hydrated, encouraging stronger, less brittle hair. While cotton may absorb your hair’s natural moisture and oils, silk locks in hydration and encourages your hair’s natural movement. If you suffer from dry strands or scalp irritation, silk will be the gift you wish you’d already given yourself.

The slippery and smooth texture of silk helps prevent frizz, tangles and breakage, promoting shiny and soft hair. If you splurge on good hair products, deep conditioners or regular trims, switching to silk is a must-do. Silk pillowcases will further supplement your devoted hair maintenance by supporting your hair as you sleep. While sleeping on silk may not directly make your hair grow, the significant benefit it has on your strands may even have you seeing your hair grow healthier and longer.

While the detailed mechanics of just how silk works may be lost to you next time someone brings up their hair care routine, the list of benefits are easy to remember: less frizz, breakage and tangles plus more hydration, natural oils and smoothness equal healthier hair overall. Don’t hesitate to invest in yourself - you’ll be managing your hair for the rest of your life, make sure it stays beautiful!
