Hello girls, I am new on this forum  I registered because I have a small problem and I need your opinion.
I have long curly hair, and in the morning when I wake up is very tangled. Not always, but most of the time it is. A friend of mine insists that a silk pillowcase is very helpful. I researched the web about it and people are promoting these satin and silk pillowcases with magic benefits for your hair. Is anyone here using them? What do you recommend me, silk or satin? And is there any good brand or shop from where I can buy one?

Thank you all
xoxo Aly

Hi Petty! Thanks for your answering! I think the next days I will go shopping and try out before buying. Only after I will compare some products I think I will be able to know which one is the best :)

I like them when on the rare occasions I get a straw set and don't want to wear a scarf.

i use them now, but honestly i perceive no difference with them than when i was laying on cotton. some people say cotton dries their hair out but i feel as though if anything my acne started flaring up with silk. i don't think cotton dried my hair out.

Hi Alybunny,
one option includes wearing a satin or silk sleep cap. I don't personally like sleep caps because they make my head hot, but some people swear by them.

As far as best places to buy....go to Amazon...if you want to buy silk/satin pillowcases or sleep caps, you can get the best prices there. I got my satin pillowcases from SavvySleepers.com and they are amazing. My head doesn't slide off the pillow and I don't get hot during the summer. They are also machine washable which makes it easy to clean. I would recommend you satin pillowcase because I used it. I don't know to tell more about silk.
Their only problem is the price, but the website offers coupon codes once in a while and if you get the offer...well, that's a deal!

I hope you will find your dream satin or silk pillowcase :)

I have a few silk pillowcases. I use them every once in awhile. When I do, I notice a difference when I wake up. I bought mine from Ross, clearance :)

I am natural and always use a satin pillowcase.  When I used to sleep on cotton pillowcases I would notice strands of hair in the cotton pillowcase weaving.  Sleeping on cotton seemed to help my hair break.

the effect of natural hair on cotton pillowcase during the night is somewhat like the two sides of velco straps. Our hair gets a lot of friction on cotton compared to something more slippery like satin. It can cause snagging that can yoink out a few fragile hair kinks, or just rough up your style and dry out your hair. I wear a satin sleeping bonnet and it helps. When i can ill probably try to get a pillowcase as it seems pretty convenient.
