Waking up and looking like a lion may be nice for a Sunday morning but on an everyday basis, we want to keep the maintenance of our curls as low as possible. By keeps the curl in tact and minimizing frizz change your pillow case. Invest in a higher thread count in pillowcases or in a satin sheet set and see the difference. The reason the higher thread count is better for your hair is because it locks in moisture and keeps it from breaking. A lower thread count is hard and has roughly 100 to 500 thread count, meaning it is more coarse so your hair is more likely to mangle and break. Egyptian cotton is a 1200 thread count and one of the best fabrics for your hair; it is soft and silky so your hair will glide across the sheets and maintain your curls.
After testing the satin pillow case method, I’ve decided it is a fair investment for my hair. When I woke up and looked at the reflection of my curls I noticed more of a shine, my hair was of the same style of the night previous. My skin is also softer, so I’m not complaining about the $15 I spent for a set of pillow cases on amazon.com. Think of it as treating yourself to great nights of sleep for fabulous hair.
