Imagine if you rolled out of bed one day and didn’t have your frizzy, tangled hair sticking out every which way. It can be hard to even picture what waking up with smooth hair would look like, but the best satin pillowcases can help make your dreams a reality.
Satin pillows don’t only supposedly have hair benefits though, they also help your skin. Cotton pillowcases tug on your skin more than satin, ultimately causing more damage to your skin. Your skin and hair both glide over the texture of satin pillowcases, so the pillowcases cause less friction. We found the best satin pillowcases for you. These pillowcases are fan-favorites. Our picks come in a variety of colors and aren’t so silky smooth that they slide straight off the pillow while you sleep. They won’t fix everything overnight, but you will probably notice differences in your hair and skin when you wake up in the morning. You might not have to throw an anti-frizz serum on your hair before heading out the door.
If you’re looking for another reason to kick your cotton pillowcase to the curb, these satin pillowcases are temperature regulating. This means they’ll keep you cold or warm, depending on the weather. They’ll adapt to what your body needs.
