Silk Satin is a weaved fabric that is quite similar to silk in its shine, color and texture. High-quality satin, which is a man-made fabric, offers the same benefits as silk sourced from silkworms.
Sleeping on a satin pillowcase is a practice that many people swear by. This is because satin is not moisture-absorbing like most other fabrics including cotton. This means that hair and skin will NOT be stripped of moisture, left dry, when you wake up in the morning. This also means that dirt and oil won't be absorbed into your pillowcase, along with other bacteria that can clog pores and cause acne with fabrics such as cotton. Satin pillowcases require less washing as a result and are considered cleaner and more hydrating for skin and hair. Sleeping on a satin pillowcase will ensure that your hair will be silkier when you wake up. Satin is especially good for maintaining perms and curls in one's hair and not having to worry about frizz when you wake up, meaning less time and money spent on maintaining your hair. Furthermore, fabrics such as cottons and other polyesters have a tendency of pulling hair and causing tangles due to friction - this is another thing that satin does not contribute to.
High-quality satin (called silk satin) is also extremely comfortable and relaxing to sleep on. It is temperature regulating, meaning that it does not get too hot and neither too cold. It is in fact, pretty refreshing and comfortable to sleep on.
A silk satin pillowcase is an excellent investment for your bedroom if you want to make sure you are getting the best rest for your face and hair with less maintenance required!
