Bed head for beautiful hair
Here’s a secret hairdressers have know for decades (and the Chinese have known for centuries). Silk and satin pillowcases are gentler on your hair than cotton. Get yourself a silk pillowcase and say goodbye to the dreaded morning ‘bird’s nest’ and ‘hello’ to sexy tousled morning hair.
The Facts: When you sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase, you will notice a huge amount of difference in the state of your hair when you wake up in the morning.

Silk allows your hair to glide over the pillow, rather than grabbing it every time you move your head during the night. Less friction means less tangling and pulling, which in turn means less hair loss.
Satin is a cheaper more durable alternative to silk if cost is an issue.
Cotton pillowcases have the tendency to dry out hair by drawing out moisture. The rough treatment on coarse cotton causes bed-head and can also damage your hair follicles, leading to thinner, less healthy hair.
