Cotton, while it can be soft and cozy, when used as a pillowcase or bandana, can cause serious damage and breakage to the hair. Cotton is very absorbent, acting like a sponge drawing all of the moisture from our hair, leaving it dry and brittle.
Satin pillowcases and satin bonnets, on the other hand, help the hair retain moisture and shine while significantly reducing frizz and breakage. Some companies even offer satin products that have been treated with natural oils that provide an added layer of moisture while you sleep.
While there is no magic potion or formula to help grow hair faster, protecting hair from rubbing against abrasive fabrics and helping it to maintain its moisture will definitely keep the hair healthy and help it grow long and strong!
