Sleep like a Queen

Once of the guests on a recent morning talkshow caught my attention. She is the founder of Jessicurl. She sells natural products for woman with curly hair. Her curls are beautiful so if you have curly hair, you might want to look into her secrets.

Anyway, she was giving several tips on how to keep your locks looking healthy. The one that stuck out the most was this:

Sleep on a satin or silk pillow. "Your hair pulls across it and the cotton actually sucks moisture out of your hair," she explains. Satin and silk pillowcases will also help get your hair softer and keep frizz at bay.

Interesting. It makes sense to me. Plus I think sleeping on silk would be very nice. I wonder how much one would cost? Do you think sleeping on cotton is that bad? Do you think her idea would work?

I don't know... Denise Austin (I think...) recommended sleeping on a satin pillow so your skin doesn't get pulled and then wrinkle. I don't know if I buy it.

I think my sister had some satin sheets last year. I'll have to ask her.

It makes sense, but I wonder if it really works. In my years working in the hair industry, I've never heard of this's worth a shot though!

I'm going to give this a shot! I love the feeling of silk! I am on my way to Bed Bath and Beyond to find a new pillow case. Thanks for the tip.

I've used both the polyester satin ones you can get at BB&B as well as 100% satin/silk, and get much better results from the 100% natural fabrics. I found the polyester ones break me out but the natural ones don't, and I don't find it as hot either. The silk one I have is so great on my hair, I even bring it when I travel! I've been doing this for years and am glad to hear it's catching on.
