YOUR HAIR: HOW SILK HELPS
If you want to preserve a blow-dry and tame the frizziness of coarse hair, then a silk pillowcase can be a game-changer. Even high-quality smooth cotton pillowcases with a high thread count can cause friction on hair. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase is recommended for maintenance by many top hairstylists, as it smooths the hair, and significantly reduces static and frizz. It’s reported to reduce friction in women prone to hair loss, too.
