DO SILK PILLOWCASES ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING?
THE HAIRDRESSER SAYS:
“Cotton is an absorbent material and draws moisture from your hair while you sleep (think of it like a reverse conditioner), which increases damage and brittle strands,” notes Anthony Nader, a celebrity hairstylist. Silk has the opposite effect; “it’s made up of sericin, a protein produced by silkworms, which is commonly used in hair and skin products to help retain moisture and hydration,’ and it also reduces friction, so there’s less breakage.
THE WRITER SAYS:
Once you go silk, you don’t go back. I actually travel with mine – it’s my emotional support.
