Collection: Satin Pillow Cases

What are the benefits of satin pillowcases?

Satin pillowcases are an accessory that everyone with natural afro hair needs, whether you have locs, braids, twists or loose hair. Now satin pillowcases aren’t necessarily natural hair accessories, they are an essential element to one’s bedding. People with natural kinky, coily and curly hair benefit the most from satin pillowcases. Most pillowcases are made of cotton which dry our hair out, so switching to satin is highly recommended. Even if we do opt to sleep in satin bonnets and scarves, we still benefit from satin pillowcases on the occasions when our bonnets and scarves slip off completely or when they expose our hairlines. Men need moisture retention and protection just like women. Men will also benefit from using satin pillowcases.

Satin pillowcases for frizz prone hair

If you have frizzy hair, especially if you are early on in your loc journey, you’ll notice less frizz in the morning when you wake up because satin does a great job at smoothening our hair. It won’t cause friction for your locs like cotton or linen cases will. The friction of the fabric against the hair will encourage more frizz for your locs while satin, being such a smooth material, will help to reverse frizz resulting in a smoothening effect for locs, braids, twists and afros.

Satin pillowcases for style preservation 

We often get our locs styled in beautiful updos, braids, twists and curls. These styles can be expensive and time consuming to achieve so it’s vital that we protect our investment and sleep on a satin pillowcase. Satin pillowcases preserve your locstyles, keeping your hair look neat and fresh until you decide to change your look.

Satin pillowcases to keep hair hydrated and prevent breakage

Since cotton and linen pillowcases cause dryness, frizz and breakage, satin pillowcases are a great preventative measure to use as an alternative. While loose hair types tend to trim their hair every couple of months, people with locs do not need to do that. When our hair breaks, its not normal, it is usually a bad sign of too much damage caused from improper color processing or its poor aftercare, excess artificial heat exposure or excess dryness. Satin pillowcases will not reverse your damage, but it will prevent the further damage that would come as the result of sleeping on cotton or linen pillowcases.

Satin Pillowcases by Love, Light & Locs come in an assortment of colors to coordinate with your personal décor of your bedding and bedroom. Pillowcases should be washed weekly to avoid experiencing breakouts on your face and skin due to and hair product being left on your pillowcase and transferred to your skin. This is also a great gift for your friend with natural hair or locs.
