At the end of a long day, nothing comes between you and your bed. Sometimes that means just plopping right down and skipping your nighttime beauty routine.

But dealing with unruly bedhead in the morning might make you regret skipping that routine. Luckily, the fix is pretty low maintenance — invest in a good pillowcase. “It’s not only better for your hair; it’s good for your skin too,” said Nicole Pearl, founder of TheBeautyGirl.com.

Some pillowcases are better than others. Pearl and other beauty experts agree the best pillowcases are made of silk. Hairstylist Bobby Eliot said a good silk pillowcase can help keep hair healthy long-term and preserve hairstyles overnight.

“The benefit of having a good silk pillowcase is that it creates less friction on the hair and allows the hair a gentle surface," said Eliot. "Friction can disrupt the cuticle layer of the hair, which causes bedhead and frizzy hair.” Silk fibers are also less absorbent than most other materials, keeping your hair and skin’s moisture intact.

To take the first step toward eliminating bedhead (and possibly achieve better skin in the process), we asked beauty experts for great silk pillowcases to try.

Silk pillowcases recommended by experts

Slip Slipsilk Pure Silk Pillowcase

One of Eliot's favorites, these 100% silk pillowcases promise to help prevent aging and overnight creases in hair.

“They’re reasonably priced and they’re so smooth and soft. They come in a wide range of colors and feel just as luxurious as a $200 silk pillowcase,” said Eliot.

Night Anti-Aging TriSilk Pillowcase

An option Pearl suggests that's great for both your skin and hair is this Night pillow. The memory foam pillow is covered with a mix of 95% mulberry silk and 5% spandex for added flexibility and durability.

Aside from preventing hair breakage, the silk in this pillow is also supposed to prevent clogged pores by protecting against environmental allergens that can sometimes settle on your skin. Since it comes with both a memory foam pillow and silk pillowcase, it might be worth the investment.

Shhh Silk Pillowcases

Jennifer MacDougall, beauty expert and celebrity hairstylist, suggested these pillowcases from Shhh Silk.

This pillowcase offers all the traditional benefits of silk, and you can even add a personal touch by paying a little extra to get them monogrammed. Designed in patterns like white and black marble, these are a must if you’re looking for something more than just a standard color.

Luxury Silk Pillowcases

If you’re looking to splurge, Eliot said your hair will love you if you go for the Manito Luxury brand. These pillowcases are handcrafted with a traditional charmeuse weave and made of mulberry silk.

They each contain a 4-inch cuff on the open end and come in a variety of colors including charcoal, plum and soft pink. Each set comes with two pillowcases.

Best silk pillowcases, according to shoppers

Celestial Silk 100% Silk Pillowcase

Who says luxury can't be affordable? Made with a hypoallergenic mulberry silk in a charmeuse weave, your hair will remain frizz- and breakage-free when you rest your head on this Amazon silk pillowcase. Just take it from almost 2,000 shoppers who rated it five stars, including one who said, "This pillowcase is heaven. I am a back and side sleeper which can lead to some serious tangles and knots. Those problems seem to have disappeared."

Quince 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcase

When you see Quince, you probably think of their affordable cashmere sweaters. Recently, though, the brand has been selling silk pillowcases for a fraction of the price! Available in six chic colors and two sizes, their mulberry silk pillowcase has quickly become a customer favorite for its hypoallergenic make, easy washability and cooling touch.

Brooklinen Mulberry Silk Pillowcase

Brooklinen is well renowned for its cozy sheets and towels, but the bedding brand also makes all-star silky pillowcases. Its mulberry silk material is breathable and naturally cool to the touch, two features that guarantee less friction damage to your hair and skin. Hundreds of shoppers have rated them a perfect rating, with several calling it a "must-have."

Blissy Pillowcase

Recognized in Good Housekeeping's 2021 Best Bedding Awards, Blissy is making waves for designing sleep products that "transform your bed into an elegant escape." Their silk pillowcases, in particular, are a shopper favorite for its moisture-retaining, eco-friendly properties. According to the brand, not only will your locks preserve its style and naturally producing oils, but your skin will also keep essential moisture throughout the night.

Pure Mulberry Slip Silk Pillowcase

Another inexpensive option is this 100% pure mulberry slip silk pillowcase. With two sides of pure mulberry silk and a color to match every room, this pillow is the perfect solution for any budget-friendly beauty guru.
