If you’re not sleeping on a silk pillowcase already, you’re missing out babe. If not for the luxurious look and feel, then do it for the endless list of silk pillowcase benefits for your skin and hair.
For years on end, us girls have been trying everything and anything to keep our skin radiant and our hair strong and healthy, when all this time we could have been doing all of that in our sleep.
The idea of a silk pillowcase might seem like a luxury, but you do spend approximately 26 years of your life sleeping - so why not invest in bedware and sleep products that add benefits beyond comfort alone?
A silk pillowcase will change your life and here’s why (we’ll also recommend the best silk pillowcase too!).
5 silk pillowcase benefits:
- No split ends or bed hair
- Helps your skin retain moisture
- No more pillow lines
- Your hairstyle lasts longer
- Less eyelash fall out
5 reasons why silk pillowcases are really good for you
1. Say goodbye to split ends and bed hair
The natural properties of silk, such as its silky smooth surface, can help reduce friction on your hair as you move in your sleep - which often causes damage like split ends. This means no more waking up with frizzy hair, unwanted “bed head” or split ends. As you toss and turn throughout the night, your hair will simply glide across your new White Marble Silk Pillowcase.
2. Say hello to hydrated skin
Sleeping on silk helps to retain the moisture in your skin, which means your nighttime skincare routine won’t go to waste. Silk is less absorbent than materials like cotton, meaning your expensive moisturiser will absorb into your skin and not into your dirty cotton pillowcase. One of our favourite silk pillowcase benefits if you ask us!
Oh, and silk pillowcases are also naturally hypoallergenic! Which is great if you frequently get allergic reactions or have super-sensitive skin.
3. No more pillow lines
Waking up with those dreaded pillow lines on your face in the morning isn’t great for your skin. But this can easily be avoided with a silk pillowcase. The smooth surface will keep your face free of fine lines and wrinkles, which has an anti-ageing effect on your skin too - winning! Smoother skin from just a night's sleep? Sign us up.
4. Extend your hair styling efforts
Every girl will agree that the struggle is very real when it comes to styling your hair. It can take hours to get our hair looking good and once we do, we like to maintain it for as long as we can. Fear not! Because yet again a silk pillowcase has your back, girl. As your hair glides across your pillow, friction is reduced which as well as reducing split ends also works to retain your styling efforts. If you really want to go to the extra effort, you can even try silk sleep bonnet. A silk sleep bonnet offers pretty much the same the benefits as the pillowcase, and can be worn wherever you lay your head. Who knew there were so many silk pillowcase benefits for your skin and hair!
5. Longer, stronger lashes
Whether you’ve got lash extensions or not, one fantastic silk pillowcase benefit is helping to prevent lash fallout. No friction means your extensions will last longer and your natural lashes will also stay put.

People also asked:
Can you put a silk bonnet on wet hair?
Yas you can! Unlike cotton, the silk won’t absorb your hair’s moisture. Just be aware that your hair might still be damp when you wake up!
This ultimately depends on the size of your essential oil diffuser, but you can usually put in 4-5 drops.

Turn your wax heater on and put in some wax. Once the wax melts, turn the wax heater down until the wax is cool enough to touch. Apply the wax generously to your body in the direction of the hair growth using a wooden stick. Once the wax hardens on your skin, pull it quickly and voila!
