Silk in general is much better for your hair than regular cotton pillowcases because of the smoothness of the silk fibers, compared to that of cotton. Cotton is a highly friction-causing fabric. Throughout the night as you sleep the friction caused by the cotton pillow case on your hair will slowly break away at the hair fibers, causing them to weaken. In addition to this, cotton absorbs moisture, so laying 8 hours a night on your cotton pillowcase will cause a lot of your moisture to absorb from your hair (and your face) into your cotton pillowcase, causing a lot of unwanted dryness. And lastly, cotton causes static electricity to build up in your hair. This increase the frizziness of your hair fibers and makes your hair harder to manage.
On that contrary, silk is a super-low friction fabric, it doesn't absorb moisture from your hair (or your face), and it doesn't cause static electricity build up in your hair.
The difference between our The Pillowcase and other silk pillowcases is that we've tweaked every possible characteristic of our silk, from the type of silk used, down to the minutest detail such as the weaving method used, to ensure The Pillowcase is the softest, gentlest and most caring pillowcase for your hair.
Our mission was to create the BEST pillowcase for fine, thin or damaged hair, and we did it!
