Please, ditch your cotton case ASAP.
If you’re a woman of color (like me!), you're likely already used to sleeping with a satin/silk scarf or bonnet at night. But, if you're new to the game and looking to preserve your blow out, maintain your twist out, or just prevent some premature fine lines (sorry, but cotton isn’t doing you any favors), it might be time to treat yourself to a silk pillowcase.
Why silk? "Your skin can't slide against cotton like it can with silk, so cotton pillowcases can actually create crepe-ing on your face due to traction,” says licensed aesthetician Brit Lanier. "Plus, sleeping on silk helps retain moisture in both your hair and skin," she adds, which means smoother, less-tangled, and more hydrated hair for you. So to make sure that nothing comes between you and your beauty sleep, try one of these 12 top-rated pillowcases, below.
