As much as I have loved my 300 thread count cotton linens, those sleep lines against my face in the morning (and sometimes afternoon naps) cannot be denied. They don’t just give me away that I dozed off. Apparently, they have long haul effects – like premature wrinkling of the face and hair breakage. Explaining all those stray hair strands all over my pillows.
In all honestly, I found it rather odd when Lady Satin approached me and asked if I can review her product. It did not occur to me until lately that satin linens actually have hair and skin benefits. Of course, I can’t just take her word for it. I had to try and look it up for myself. I was actually meaning to use these satin pillowcases when we get settled in our newly renovated home. But we’re not moving until a couple of weeks. Did I already mention before about my not so very high EQ? The soft feel of the cases was just too inviting to ignore. Well, that’s another challenge I lost recently. Thus, this post. 🙂

I threw them lazily right from when I pulled them out of the box and the satin soft texture can’t be denied. And yes! You read my mind right. I couldn’t wait to hurry to the bath and get to bed! — I wouldn’t want to get all my sweaty face (thanks to our 36ish very humid temperature) on my spanking satin soft pillowcases. Teehee!
Now while all these satiny softness factor can be all good and comfy, there’s more to using satin pillowcases than our eyes can see. I know I’ve already mentioned those sleep lines. Because fetal is my default sleeping position (hello backaches!), seeing those sleep lines upon waking is nothing but normal. This can also speed up aging by causing permanent wrinkling of the skin. Yikes!
Then, there’s hair care. We all know why most towels are made of cotton, they absorb water faster. Newsflash: cotton also absorbs the natural oil and moisture off our hair. Figures why our hair gets unruly and frizzy upon waking up. Using satin pillowcases will best help our hair to retain its natural oil, which in turn will cause less breakage than if we were using cotton pillowcases.

If there is anything I would have wanted better for my Lady Satin pillowcases, is for them to have this inner flap to keep the pillows in place. That’s because I sleep like a ninja. Yes, I just let you in on my dark secret. 🙂
Satin Pillowcase Care Instruction
There may be a few considerations when it comes to satin pillowcase care. But given the beauty and health benefit, definitely a small price to pay. I’m totally choosing satin pillowcases over my 300 TC cotton ones! Thank you, Lady Satin, for coming up with these great quality satin pillowcases. 🙂
that is very interesting to learn that satin can actually prevent wrinkles and hair breakage. I want one to give me a better sleep as well.
that bed linens looks really soft and smooth. I think the higher counts the better. You should try getting those 500 counts, they are expensive but worth it 🙂
This is very informative. I did not know that about cotton pillow cases, that’s what we use wahhh.. Thanks for the tips.
Cotton is cool to sleep on and absorbent.it is soft and smooth the hair does not get so tangled nice I bet this is I want to use.
Thank you so much for such an enlightening article! I never really thought that the type of pillow case could cause premature wrinkling of my skin, let alone about my hair.
I think I’ll have to pick up some of these pillow cases. I do know that changing pillow cases frequently is a good idea to prevent dirt and bacteria build up on my face. Thanks for making me aware!
