Satin vs Silk Pillowcase For Hair, Battle Of The Pillowcases!

Satin VS Silk Pillowcase For Hair

Using a satin vs silk pillowcase for hair is an easy way to help hair growth. Keep reading to find out why I love this easy and simple beauty hair growth tip!


Is Using A Cotton Pillowcase Worse Than Using  A Satin vs Silk Pillowcase For Hair?

The problem with cotton pillowcases is that they tend to be rougher on your hair and skin than silk or satin pillowcases. Using a cotton pillowcase can create brittle hair that can break off while you sleep.

Another problem with using a cotton pillowcase is that they can also dry out your hair & skin by soaking up moisture from your hair and skin. This can create dry brittle hair to cause split ends and more breakage and can cause skin to age faster because when your skin is dry this can cause wrinkles to form as well as create dry, rough skin. 

Think of your skin and hair like a grape vs a raisin 


Do you want dry hair and skin like a raisin or moisturized hair and skin like a healthy plump grape?

When there is moisture in your skin and hair they are plump and healthy. Yet when your skin and hair are dry they can become wrinkled, brittle and can cause breakage hair loss thinning! 


What Is a Satin Pillowcase?

Satin pillowcases are generally made from a combo of materials that create a smoother texture material but is not a single natural material like silk. Satin will have a smooth texture except in the back or inside of the material it will have a completely different dull texture showing that it is not a pure natural material.

In fact often times satin is now made from the fabric polyester.


What Is a Silk Pillowcase?

Silk pillowcases are made from a single material that is a natural protein fiber sourced from silk worms.

Silk worms are the larva that produce this awesome material specifically from the mulberry silk moth. 

But don't worry it is not gross but actually considered a luxury item to have.

The benefits of silk pillowcases are the following:

  • one of the leading softest fabrics
  • breathable
  • comfortable
  • naturally hypoallergenic
  • natural resistance to dust mites, fungus, mold
  • retains moisture in skin and hair for healthy hair and skin
  • helps reduce split ends in hair for healthy hair growth
  • machine washable - no need to go to cleaners
  • smoother less frizzy healthy hair
  • reduces wrinkles
  • reduces acne
  • shiny hair



What Is The Difference Between a Satin Pillowcase Vs Silk Pillowcase For Hair

Well satin is a weaved fiber and silk is a natural fiber. Satin has two sides a smoother side and when turned inside out has a dull finish due to being combined with other fabrics such as nylon, rayon and polyester.

Where as silk is a luxury fabric yet with that comes a price tag and is a bit more on the expensive side. The only con about silk fabric is the price tag. The reason for it's price tag is due to the fact that silk fabric is harder to produce. It takes thousands of silk worms in order to produce a single thread.

That is the main difference between a silk vs satin pillowcase for hair.
