Hair is a tricky thing. The time of day you wash it, the weather outside, the products you use, and even how you sleep affects how it looks when it dries. There’s a lot that can go wrong!
Most women do not just go to sleep with wet hair and wake up naturally blessed with perfectly styled locks. It just doesn’t happen! If you experience chronic bad hair days–first off, I feel you–but there might be something you can do to change your luck.
Whether your goal is to obtain sleek straight hair, bouncy curls, or beachy waves, this one trick might help fix your hair woes.
The culprit behind your frizzy, messy hair in the morning: your pillowcase. Unless you’re sleeping on a silk pillow casing, it could be tugging and roughing up your hair all night while you toss and turn in your sleep. The texture on cotton and other fabrics are not smooth and therefore, don’t allow your hair to slide back and forth while you move. The slipperiness of silk pillowcases prevents you from waking up with frizz and flyaways. Problem solved!
Luckily you can get a silk pillowcase for just $20 from Amazon. With Prime two-day shipping, you’ll be on your way to better hair days in just a couple of days!
