Beautiful hair needs an expert: Silk Pillowcase

My recommendation this week is simple- invest in a silk pillowcase. With the arrival of winter, you might find yourself challenged with unusually dry hair. One way to prevent this problem is to use a silk pillowcase.

Certain fabrics, such as cotton, deplete the hair of moisture and cause friction on the hair's cuticle (outermost layer of hair), leaving it dry and prone to breakage. Not only will a silk pillowcase keep your hair soft and smooth, but it feels so good on your skin! I'm recommending that Beyonce add this to her packing list as she travels around the world promoting her new album.

I had heard the same thing about cotton pillowcases. They absorb the moisture from your hair and skin that's needed to be healthy. Cotton also causes split-ends and bedhead. I began using satin pillowcases a couple of years ago and what a difference. My hair is much healthier and I don’t have those pillow creases on my face in the morning. There is an amazing website that sells not only solid colors but these awesome prints. I found a set that is perfect with my color scheme in a soft, beautiful print and I found a set in a funky pattern. Both are so amazingly comfortable. I also bought a peppermint eye pillow that is just so relaxing. The name of the company is A Touch Of Satin. Their website is They had a page that talked about all the benefits of sleeping on satin. Give them a look and let me know what you think.
