You’ve likely seen luxe satin or silk pillowcases popping up on your IG feeds, with everyone from Gisele Bündchen and Victoria Beckham to Kourtney Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen swearing by them. In fact, celeb hairstylist Jen Atkin has even hopped on board with Slip, becoming a brand ambassador for the super popular silk pillowcase brand.
So what is it about these silk pillowcases that has everyone so obsessed? Hint: it’s not just that they look insanely chic and luxurious, or that they’re cooling and comfortable to rest your head on. Believe it or not, satin and silk pillowcases are also beneficial for your skin and hair. The ultra-smooth pillowcases work to keep hair breakage and frizz at bay, and prevent creases and fine lines from forming as you sleep.
The smooth, friction-free materials allow your hair and skin to gently glide along the pillowcase as you toss and turn at night, rather than tugging and rubbing on skin and hair, movements that eventually leads to wrinkles (think about those deep creases you wake up with after a long, deep sleep) and hair breakage.
