Sleeping on a silk pillowcase prevents hair breakage, tangles, and frizz.
Silk pillowcases keep hair moisturized because silk doesn't absorb moisture like cotton.
Silk pillowcases prevent sleep creases on the face and hair for smoother skin and hair.
Silk pillowcases provide additional benefits like improving sleep quality, clearing acne, and slowing signs of aging.
If you're still reading, then I'm sure you'll relate to what I'm about to say:
I have naturally wavy hair, and my hair—she's quite a feisty queen.
Until recently, she and I were constantly at odds. I like to blow dry my hair straight, but it's always been an uphill battle getting it to look silky smooth.
I'd brush her, she'd poof. I'd forget to work in a cream, she'd droop. I'd simply sleep, and she'd frazzle overnight.
Fortunately, after discovering the many benefits of Blissy Silk Pillowcases, we've buried our differences and me and my hair have become one. And fabulously so!
Bad Hair Days: The Pre-Blissy Era
Before I discovered Blissy's mulberry silk pillowcases, my hair was not happy. For 20+ years, she'd been dull, frizzy, and dry. From bed head to split ends, she seriously struggled to shine (despite all the work I put into her).
I implemented some great anti-frizz products and techniques. But, although I didn't realize it, my non-silk pillowcase was undoing my efforts.
I even tried switching from cotton pillowcases to satin pillowcases. I'd heard how "miraculous" they are and was quite disappointed. Over a week after switching to satin, my hair had barely improved.
What I hadn't realized is that satin and silk are not the same thing:
Satin only refers to the fabric weave. And although satin does feel smooth, it's often made from synthetic materials, subpar to silk.
I started hearing more and more about silk, and how sleeping on a silk pillowcase is a major game-changer for hair and skin.
I was losing optimism about my frazzled state, but, thankfully, decided to take the plunge.
The Day I Fell in Love With a Pure Silk Pillowcase
My silk pillowcase before and after tale (finally) began about 6 months ago when my pure mulberry silk pillowcase arrived from Blissy. It was a box of hope on my doorstep—and boy, did it deliver.
I excitedly adorned my pillow with this chic pink pillowcase and counted the hours until bedtime.
When I laid down on my new, ultra-soft pillowcase, I really noticed how much nicer it felt than all previous contenders. With a renewed sense of faith, I went to sleep.
When I awoke the next morning (after a much-improved night of sleep), I was shocked to find:
My hair felt smoother, had less tangles, and looked better overall!
Months Later and Still No Bed Head
After sleeping on a Blissy Pillowcase nightly for 6 months now, I can confidently say I would never use another pillow cover. This silk pillowcase before and after tale has a happy ending, one with consistently healthier and happier hair.
I've continued to have the same wonderful mornings with frizz-free hair—every day is a good hair day, even with my formerly irritable waves.
Who knew sleeping on a silk pillowcase would be such an easy, natural, and effective way to get gorgeous locks!?
Even after tossing and turning all night long, my hair isn't knotted or matted when I wake up! It definitely used to be before I switched to silk.
I learned that this is because silk has significantly less friction than cotton and other fabrics. Your hair won't be roughed up throughout the night as you sleep.
My Blissy Silk Pillowcase keeps my hair super moisturized and glossy! The traditional cotton pillowcase and satin case did not.
Another amazing beauty fact about silk—it won't absorb moisture, including hair products or your hair's natural oils. I hadn't known this hair hydration trick until I discovered Blissy!
My hair feels amazingly soft now when it used to be visibly dry. Plus, I have virtually no frizz during humid weather!
Since I've switched to sleeping on a silk pillowcase, I've also had crease-free, smoother hair.
Pre-silk, I'd wake up and a series of lines and dents would pattern my waves. Now, those are gone for good!
Not Just for Hair: Other Benefits of the Blissy Pillowcase
I've had amazing beauty sleep
Aside from my fabulous hair transformation, I've also had an unexpectedly improved quality of sleep. Sleeping on a cool silk pillowcase is ultra-soothing, comfortable, and temperature-regulating!
I've happily parted ways with sweaty nighttime wake-ups in the heat of summer.
Plus, Blissy Silk Pillowcases are naturally hypoallergenic and repel dust mites. If you, too, deal with nighttime and early morning allergies, this pillowcase is a godsend!
My skin and hair are improved
My sensitive skin has also thanked me for sleeping on silk. I've had acne-prone skin for years, and hadn't known what a difference silk pillowcases could make:
After about a month of sleeping on my Blissy Pillowcase, I already had clearer skin!
Turns out that hydrating mulberry silk is also anti-bacterial, non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and anti-aging. Yes, anti-aging—silk is essential for wrinkle prevention!
Because it has minimal friction, I've also broken up with morning sleep creases and slowed new fine lines and wrinkles. My delicate facial skin looks dramatically different.
Seriously, the Blissy Pillowcase is the best silk pillowcase for skin and hair.
