I got mine from amazon for about 15 but I've also seen them in john lewis for about 20 Sounds like a lot for a pillowcase but it's totally made a difference... I'd guess ebay might be cheaper? Good luck!
3b or c? Very fine hair but lots of it!

Newly CG (ish) and loving it so far, currently using Original Source to Co-wash, Australian Organics to condition, Trevor Sorbie curl cream and shockwaves gel. Weekly sulphate free shampoo.
I made mine, it took 5 mins!

Hair type: THICK 4a with hints of 3c, I think

DT: Homemade recipes involving shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, honey, eggs amongst other natural products.
Curl products: KCCC with KT or homemade curly custard, Fantasia I.C Gel (for smoothing edges only)
Is it worth spending more money to get hold of not-polyester satin pillowcase or does it not really make a difference?
does it actually make much difference? I've been thinking of getting one but not sure what it'll do for me
I ordered silk fabric from in order to make my own silk pillow cases. Are they really worth using or not

Yes, it makes a difference whether you use polyester or silk.

Silk breathes. It's warm in cold weather, and cool in hot weather. It doesn't pull on, or leach moisture out of your hair and skin.

Polyester can be hot and cause you to sweat. It can be overly slippery.

Baby Fine 3B, low porosity, normal density and elasticity
CGing since July 2008
U can get 1 quite reasonable on eBay. Just search satin pillowcase and/or sleep cap.
