I purchased my first silk pillowcase after a deep dive into the curly hair corner of the internet, where I learned that my beloved cotton and polyester cases created friction that could actually harm my loose ringlets—and on top of that, my skin. Three years later, I’ve slept on a silk pillowcase every night without looking back. After all this time, I can confirm that the rumors are true: Silk pillowcases are, in fact, the key to a well-rounded beauty routine.

No matter your hair texture or skin type, you could benefit from making the switch to silk. Devotees have called the pillowcases their new “go-to beauty secret,” and for good reason. Their smoothness prevents friction that would ordinarily lead to fine lines and frizz, and they’re less prone to absorbing liquids and oils than other materials, meaning your hair and skin products will stay where you want them to overnight. With all of these benefits and more, it’s a good thing there are silk pillowcases to suit every concern and price point available on Amazon
