The winter season may be a great reason to give yourself the gift of silk and satin - well, to give your hair the gift of silk or satin.

Sleep Well

The benefits of using these materials for curly hair are numerous, and most curlies agree that they notice less to no breakage when they use a satin or silk pillowcase at night. Satin and silk pillowcases help to retain the much needed moisture in your hair.

With the winter months being very dry, your curls will need as much moisture as they can get. These pillowcase will also help if you have problems with tangles and knots. (PS they also make great gifts for young curly girls! sating pillowcases in hot pink, purple and bright green are sure to “wow” a young one, and keep her curls in shape too!).

If you’re someone who loves natural fibers, try a silk pillowcase instead of satin. Though the satin pillowcases may be less costly and easier to find, you may want to try one of each and see which one works best for you, and your hair.

Once you start using a satin or silk pillowcase, you will certainly notice the difference and may just get addicted to the way it feels not only on your hair, but your skin as well.

Tie it Up

And you don’t have to limit yourself to silk and satin in the bedroom - try some silk scarves this winter too. They can be a curl’s best friend in dry, cold winter weather. Silk and satin scarves come in endless patterns, colors and lengths - you’re sure to find a few that work for you. Use scarves to tie your hair up at night and secure with some metal clips; wear out to work, or protect your hair from cold winter winds. You can change to wearing the same scarf around your neck, or even as a belt, once you get to work or a festive holiday party.

Put a Lid On It

Silk and satin bonnets are also a great way to protect your hair at night. If you’re trying out twists, braids or other styles, using a silk or satin bonnet can help keep your hair soft, defined and well moisturized as you sleep.

Give your locks the gift of silk and satin this winter, you’re sure to notice a difference in just a short time, and your curls will thank you.
