CAN A NEW PILLOWCASE REALLY IMPROVE MY HAIR, SKIN AND OVERALL WELLBEING?
Yes! Traditional pillowcases are made from cotton or cotton/polyester blends. While they are inexpensive and cost effective, they actually have a rough surface that creates friction on your hair and skin at night. You may wonder why you have frizzy hair, wrinkles and parched skin in the morning!
As a material, cotton is very absorbent and pulls moisture from your skin and hair while you're sleeping. We all know that evenings are the best time to repair your skin, especially after a long day of exposure to pollutants, the sun and blue light. However, you can wreak further skin havoc if you sleep on fabric that saps the moisture from your skin and creams, and worsens sleep creases due to the folds that form on your pillowcase. This moisture loss, compounded by night after night of collagen-weakening sleep lines, can be bad for your complexion, as it depletes skin elasticity which could cause the lines to form permanently over time. Yikes!
The solution? Opt for 100% organic bamboo pillowcases. Bamboo is a smooth, gentle material that allows your hair and skin to glide over at night, which will reduce tension and pulling while you sleep. As a material, bamboo is less absorbent than cotton, which helps your hair and skin retain their natural levels of moisture.
Bamboo is also anti-microbial and hypoallergenic, which means you'll unlikely experience allergic reactions, and it'll prevent the growth of dust mites from forming on your pillows. Dust mites are a very common allergy, so that’s why bamboo pillowcases are a great choice for allergy sufferers. Its thermo-regulating and sweat-wicking properties means it’ll keep your head cool in summer and warm in winter. We spend one third of our day asleep (if you should be so lucky), so why not make the most of it?
