Best Pillowcase Materials for Healthy Hair

Best Pillowcase Materials for Healthy Hair


3 minute read

Perhaps you’ve spent precious minutes at your local beauty supply store looking at rows of hairbrushes and considering how a detangling or paddle brush will impact your hair health. But did you know that your pillowcase can also play a huge role in how your locks look and feel? 

To many people, a pillowcase may simply be a piece of fabric that serves the aesthetics of the bedroom and protects a pillow from the dirt, moisture, and oil that collects on your skin. However, a comfortable night’s rest could turn into a tangled, all-day nightmare with the wrong pillowcase. 

According to Women's Health, cotton pillowcases "create friction against your hair," which can lead to frizz, tangles, and breakage. That very same friction can also leave marks on your skin, causing it to fold and wrinkle. Wondering how to protect your luscious locks with the right pillowcases? Your best bet is with pillowcases that use a tightly woven fabric, which you can find right here at SHEEX®!

The Basics of Choosing a Pillowcase That Won’t Damage Hair

How do you go about choosing the best pillowcase for your hair? According to The Sleep Judge, "silk and synthetic fabrics are your best bet for a good sleep surface to keep tangles and split ends at bay." Pillowcases made with silk, satin, and microfibers operate similarly, offering a close-knit weave, which means your hair won't get pulled by harsh fabrics. But sometimes this can create a less breathable surface and cause your head to feel hot — unless you opt in for a SHEEX pillowcase that offers the best of both worlds.

Midnight Label Pillowcases

Tightly woven pillowcases, such as our Midnight Label Pillowcases, will help you achieve healthy, frizz-free hair. The Ridiculously Soft® and silky smooth fabric of our cool Midnight Label Pillowcases is frictionless, reducing the stress on your hair and skin caused by the tugging and pulling associated with traditional sheets. You’ll wake up rejuvenated without the morning crush wrinkles, dry skin, or brittle, tangled hair. Plus, the quick-drying and moisture-wicking pillowcase also uses cooling minerals embedded in brrr˚ Nylon to help hot sleepers get better rest!

Arctic Aire•MAX Pillowcases

Silk is notoriously one of the best materials to help keep your hair shiny and healthy when it comes to pillowcases. Our Arctic Aire•MAX pillowcase uses 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell, which is actually softer than silk and naturally hypoallergenic. And for a pillow that stays cold all night, the Lyocell fibers contain submicroscopic channels that help regulate absorption and release moisture.
