one of the main components of our external beauty is certainly hair, so it is important that they are neat, well-groomed and attractive. Usually, however, when it’s time to go to bed, we don’t think about anything other than just getting to a comfortable bed as soon as possible… and bam, we land in the land of dreams. Sounds familiar, right? 🙂 This happens to me quite often, so I think it’s right to take care of our hair and scalp much earlier, when we are still awake or when we think about it much more broadly than just using a quality shampoo, conditioner and mask.
Sleep is healthy for our body and mind, but right during sleep we can also influence how very healthy our hair will be. Traditional pillow covers are usually made of cotton and although there are several types of cotton, silk pillow covers are certainly still the best choice for your hair. Why?
Silk provides hair with maximum comfort, so if you want to protect your hair during sleep, invest in a quality silk pillowcase, which is made of real 100% silk and has no added satin or any other material. Silk pillowcases are softer to the touch and much smoother than cotton, so your hair will glide more easily on the pillow during sleep, resulting in less friction. It is friction during sleep that leads to damage to the hair follicles, breakage and split hair tips, so there is mechanical damage to the hair. Our hair, however, thus becomes seemingly unattractive. For practical reasons, we often tie our hair in a ponytail or fig before going to bed, but doing so does more harm than good. The consequences can include hair loss, among other things.

The silk pillowcase prevents breakage, split ends, tangles and charged hair. But that’s not all. Waking up with a “bird nest” on your head will become a thing of the past, as the silk pillowcase prevents hair from knotting, and your hair will look healthier and shinier.
Often, especially for those of us with long hair, it happens that they get tangled on the buttons of the cover, so we at Iskriva also thought about that. Iskriva silk pillowcases are closed with an elegant discreet zipper. In addition, it is right to point out that 100% silk is itself a natural temperature regulator, which means that it will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the cold winter days. Which can only be a plus for your hair, as you won’t sweat your head during sleep during the summer and as a result, your hair won’t get too wet and wrinkled in the morning. This will make the morning routine shorter for you, as you will not have extra work with your hair.
As with any thing, however, in this case, too, things are not one-way. As the old folk wisdom says: “As much as you give, so much you get.”. This is also the case with our hair, so we advise you not to ignore other recommendations of hair care experts in addition to the silk pillow cover, such as choosing the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair, limiting the use of a hair straightener, using a dryer properly, visiting your hairdresser regularly and more.
