    Surely I can't be the only one scared by looking in the mirror in the morning and realizing that I slept on my cotton pillowcase seam?

    Well, frizzies and weird face creases BE GONE! Folks have sworn by silk pillowcases (like this one!) for years in tackling these beauty conundrums AND for a ~cooling~ effect. So the thing you sleep on may just become the fave part of your nightly beauty routine!

    BTW, it's made of 100% mulberry silk, and has a 600 thread count and hidden zipper. So basically, it'll be smooth as ACTUAL silk on your hair and just may save you a wash or so a week. Talk about an investment.

    Oh, and it comes in DOZENS of colors, so you're sure to find an option that'll fit in nicely with your current bedding sitch.

    I won't say that sleeping on the pillow version of "The Starry Night" will be the creative inspo you need to finish that work project. But I'm not not saying it won't ;).

    But don't just listen to me! Take a gander at the 4,000+ reviews with an average rating of 4.6 stars to help make my (very convincing) case.

    "I've never had issues with my skin so I'm not sure about that, but I have really curly hair and this keeps my ringlets looking good for days. With a normal cotton pillowcase it usually separates my curls so I had to wash it every day." —Amazon Customer

    "These are quality silk pillowcases. I purchased two of them. I got silk because that is supposed to prevent those dreaded creases in older skin that lasts half the day because of lack of elasticity in your skin as you age. Well, it’s been about three weeks of using them and I have not woken up with any facial creases! I wanted to comment on the care of them. I hand-washed in a detergent for delicates. I then soaked up the damp with a bath towel after lightly squeezing the water out. I then put them in my dryer on 'air only' for about 40 minutes and they came out of the dryer wrinkle-free. They say to hang them to dry after washing but using your dryer on air-only with no heat is the same thing, only better because it gets the wrinkles out. Love my soft Alaska Bear silk pillowcases." —S. Conaghan

    "I bought this pillowcase for my hair and skin. At first, I did not notice a big difference in my hair. It wasn't until after I stopped using it that I started noticing my hair texture change. It began to look dry and frizzy again. With that being said, I truly believe this silk pillowcase will benefit the health and texture of your hair. I recommend giving it a shot. It's super soft and it will also make your bed look more classy." —AC

    "I absolutely adore these. I've heard they're great for your hair and skin but they also stay so cool and are just so soft. I sleep with them every night! I just ordered another. I can't use any other pillowcase now and get the same level of sleep. They are the best. My favorite part is not only the feeling of them and how they stay cool, but the zipper on the side makes my pillows look so sharp and clean and tidy! It's the best. I haven't had acne issues at all since, and my hair is so much less frizzy. I cannot rave enough about these. I have the unbleached white ones and they are just gorgeous." —Rianna

    Or take a look at this customer who shared some ~sleek~ hair results thanks to sleeping on this silk babe and is never going back to cotton pillowcases.

    amazon.com

    "I bought these pillowcases because my thick, curly hair dries out and frizzes easily. I was doing everything else I could (co-washing, using leave-in conditioner and wide-tooth comb), and although I could get my hair under control during the day, I would always wake up with my hair dry and standing on end. I saw a few recommendations to try silk pillowcases, so I gave these a shot due to their reasonable price. To make sure these would really work, I took a picture after a night of sleeping on a cotton pillowcase (left) and after a night of sleeping on these silk pillowcases (right). I was surprised by how significant the difference was. A side benefit is that they also leave my face less dried out when I wake up, which has reduced some fine lines around my eyes. Even my mouth feels less dry, which could be because they're supposed to be hypoallergenic. As far as washing them, I put them through the washing machine (cold, gentle cycle) and hung them to dry, and they made it through fine. Overall, these were very much worth the money." —Pascal Matheis
