20 Best Silk Pillowcases You Can Buy (And Why They Are Awesome)

Silk pillowcases feel sexy and luxe, but they can also be a valuable part of your beauty routine! According to stylist Stephanie Angelone of RPZL in New York City, “Silk pillowcases are amazing. They are great if you have extensions or to hold a style overnight.”

Why is that? She adds, “Sleeping on a silk pillowcase prevents friction from your hair and your pillow that may cause knotting and pulling of hair extensions. If you don’t have a pillowcase, you can also use a silk scarf and wrap your head with it for the same results. If you want to keep and preserve an updo/blow dry or any other style, this will also work for that.”

But aside from keeping your hair healthy, it’s also great for your skin. Says celebrity cosmetic doctor, Dr. Violetta Mailyan, "The natural properties of silk help retain and balance your skin's much-needed moisture levels as opposed to cotton which can literally suck the moisture from your skin. Why undo the good work of excellent skincare habits by adopting sleeping rituals that can counteract the results of your skincare routine?"

With that, look no further than the best silk pillowcases on the market, perfect for making you incredibly comfy in bed.
