Fresh Feature: The Satin Pillowcase

[Fast forward to 1:50... unless you enjoy Katt Williams' crusade against MJ]

"I got a regular bed with regular pillows, and I got two pillows with a silk cover on em. That's not for me! That's in case [expletive] wanna come over there and don't feel like wrappin' they got [expletive] hair up, they ain't gotta [expletive] up they perm [expletive] wit a [expletive]!" -- Katt Williams

Hopefully, that cracked you up a little bit on the inside. Everyone I know thought Pimp Chronicles was theeee most hilarious thing ever...and I agree. What I loved though, was the element of truth present in all of Williams' jokes. Yep, even the silk pillowcase.

Disregard the semi-stank face 
I know by now, you've well aware that in order to protect your hair, retain moisture, prevent fuzzies and such, you're supposed to cover your hair each night with a satin bonnet or scarf. You can use silk too, if you're ballin' like that. I'm not gonna lie, some nights I don't feel like fighting with the scarves and bonnets. Other nights, I don't want my hair to flatten out. What's a girl to do? Listen to Katt Williams. Seriously, amid all the cussin' he dropped some knowledge. If you're not a big fan of tying down/covering/wrapping your hair, a satin pillowcase is for you!

I purchased my satin pillowcase from Wal-Mart (sorry Target...even with your new focus on ethnic and natural neglected to throw this one on the shelves) for about $8. Satin pillowcases are also available at Sally Beauty Supply for about a dollar more. I went with the Evolve brand at Wal-Mart because, was bright pink. I like bright colors. For absolutely no reason. But anywho, I digress.

For continuity, I will use the same metrics to evaluate the pillowcase as I do all my Fresh Features. So bear with me.
Standard sized - fit my pillow well!
Ingredient List: 100% satin pillowcase, obviously fuchsia dye, and a zipper.
Ingredient Analysis: No complaints here.
Availability: Good. Carried by two major stores, but I wish Target would get on the satin pillowcase train.
Affordability: Excellent.Good quality and under $10.
Product Claim/Description:Protects hair & maintains moisture at night, available in fun colors, zipper closure.
Performance/Delivery: I woke up with the same amount of moisture in my hair that I went to sleep with. Emphasis on moisture, not wetness. No frizzies either (besides what I already had in my crown area before sleeping).
Bonuses: I sleep like a wild woman. Having a zipper closure was a GENIUS idea. Also, I would sometimes get headaches where the knot in my scarf was tied. No more headaches!
Bottom Line: Go buy one. NOW. Like, right now right now. It will change your life. 

Sleep tight!


  1. So glad I found your site and review of this product. I am looking to buy my little girl one of these because she very rarely likes wearing a satin bonnet or scarf to sleep...she's rarely able to keep them on when she sleeps anyways. So yeah, I definitely need one of these for her. I thought of getting one from Oyin Handmade, but figured I'd try this one at half the price, and of course since your review convinced me. Thanks for the great review. I am really hoping this works well for my daughter.

  2. The Silkskin Anti Wrinkle Pillowcase is the most recent item to battle indications of maturing and can be utilized while you are dozing. I have found that as I get more seasoned, the almost negligible differences take more time to vanish when I wake up, some of the time holding off on blurring until lunch time. Evening time is the point at which the skin repairs itself. Utilizing this silk pillowcase you can allow you skin to inhale normally!
