2. Reduces Hair Loss
There is nothing like a great pillow that aligns your neck with the rest of your body.
What is also important–especially for your hair–is the type of pillowcase that you have.
When it comes to what you sleep on your fabric choice matters!
Most hair care professionals recommend for you to sleep on a satin pillowcase instead of a cotton one.
Hair professionals recommend this because it helps reduce friction between your hair and pillow.
This happens because as we toss and turn at night our hair is rubbing up against our pillow.
This can result in dry hair, more breakage and tangles when we wake up. When we sleep on cotton pillowcases it does several things to our hair.
One, it dries out our hair and absorbs your natural oils from your face and hair.
Two, it also rubs against your hair which can lead to breakage.
Not to mention, cotton is a highly absorbent material and it will absorb natural oils and moisture from your skin.
As a result, this can lead to dry, itchy, irritated skin in the mornings.
The good news about cotton pillowcases is that they absorb all of the dirt, saliva and oils from our faces.
All of these working together will all help with reducing hair loss.
