In case you didn't got the memo, sleeping on silk comes with a whole host of benefits, from helping to reduce irritation, prevent wrinkles, and even keep frizzy hair at bay.
Silk doesn’t absorb moisture from your face, so when you wake up after sleeping on a silk pillowcase, your face feels more hydrated and it's especially beneficial to those with dry, flaky skin. Silk is also naturally hypoallergenic, making it a must for asthma patients and those who suffer from allergies.
As someone with super frizzy and curly hair, silk pillowcases have long been a lifesaver for me. Since sleeping on silk pillowcases greatly reduces hair breakage and frizz, I find that they do a great job at keeping my curls in tact all night long.
Silk pillowcases are having a huge moment right now on TikTok, with more than 6.3 million hashtag views, and thousands of videos praising them for their beauty benefits.
If you're new to the wold of silk, what should you be looking out for when shopping? When it comes to silk, one of the most important metrics is momme (a Japanese form of weight) count, which has become the official measurement of silk. It typically ranges from 18 to 22 count — the higher the count, the softer the silk will be.
Mulberry is the highest quality of silk you can find. It's known to be the Egyptian cotton equivalent of silk, so if you'd rather splurge, that's what you'll want to spend your money on.
For those who'd rather stick to a budget, we've rounded up some of the best silk pillowcases on the market, all at under $100.
