For the last 1 year or so, I always make sure that I sleep on a satin pillowcase every night when I'm home. I don't care if the rest of the bed materials are of a different design and color, because the benefits are worth the daily mismatch.
I am telling you, it does wonders! My hair looks healthier and shinier than ever! And I really do mean 'ever' (say, 5-6 years ever.) And I don't see loose hair stuck on my pillowcase when I wake up anymore! If you have very frizzy, unruly hair, a satin pillowcase will calm it down.
As for anti-aging, think about it. When you sleep on your side for most of the night (like I do), your face and the skin around your eyes are stretched and pulled in more ways than one, that is, when you sleep on a cotton pillowcase. But with a satin pillowcase, there is hardly any stretching and pulling of any kind because the fabric is so slippery that it will not hold on to your skin. It's a smooth ride all night long...lol...
So, less stretching and pulling = Less fine lines and wrinkles.
My eyes rarely look puffy in the morning too, thanks to my darling satin pillowcases.
If you haven't already got one, you gotta go get it now because I think a satin pillowcase will do what some anti-aging creams and hair treatments with empty promises will never do.
Just make sure the satin is of good quality though. Run a chipped nail or the ridge/teeth of a key on the fabric, if you see a slight tear and if a thread comes loose or gets stuck to your nail, then it's bad quality. Move on... keep looking and scratching =D
I hope you find your perfect satin pillowcase! :)
