    That makes sense, especially if you live in warmer climates. I'll probably try the less expensive option for now and see how it goes.

    I definitively think that sleeping on polyester night after night Is not so good for my skin. I get sweaty and wake up with weird breakouts.
    I usually can find real silk for a good price in local thrift shops and fairs! Plus, sometimes the earnings go to charities, so double win!

    Thank you! Do you prefer a bonnet over a tied scarf?

    I bought 3 bonnets....dangerous territory. I'll let everyone know how they turn out!

    For me, a tied scarf always slips off but I'm a rough sleeper and I toss and turn.

    My partner got a silk pillowcase from here, no complaints so far, seems satiny enough. Can recommend. They don't have bonnets though unfortunately.
    No trim challenge second half of 2020. No dye until 2022.

    I recently bought a handmade silk bonnet on Etsy! Itís very lovely and such good quality but Iíve been sceptical to use it after wearing it every night for a week or so... Iím not sure if Iím just seeing things that arenít there but I think the edges might be causing me breakage on the nape/back of my hairline...!! I wonder if anyone else has experienced this? Leaning towards a silk scarf, hmmm might be more gentle?

    If you can sew you can scout out thrift stores for larger sized, real silk blouses for just a few bucks. Then you cut the back into the size and shape you want, hem all four sides, and voila, a lovely silk scarf!

    I have never done this myself, but I've read about people who did and who were very happy with the result.
