    It's the same for me! Even our Walmart wasn't helpful. I had to really go out of my way to find a fabric store here that carries satin. Was a bit shocking!

Itís super soft and shiny again Canít believe just how much cotton dries out my hair, absorbing all the moisture!

    When I originally started caring for my hair in the beginning, I made so many changes at once that I probably didnít realize how the satin was such an important part. The crazy thing is, this isnít even a high quality of silk Iím using! I just grabbed this cheap piece from the local fabric store where everything is a mess (while waiting for my online order of mulberry silk) and mom sewed it into a pillowcase. It means the quality doesnít matter, at least for me, as long as the weave of the material is slippery satin. Thanks for all the replies, was interesting learning about othersí experiences with this

    Iím just sad I cut off so much hair these past months, thinking it was just too late/damage was done, when really everything could have been remedied. A future warning to anyone who may need it!
    Quality/type of silk doesn't matter for me either. I have a "mulberry" silk pillowcase that I only paid a small amount for, so not sure about the authenticity but it works great. So does the one I had before that I only paid $5 USD

    Yeah, too bad my first experience happened to be with mulberry and so I thought it was the magical mulberry helping me, when really the satin weave itself was more than enough! The more you know

    I stopped using a silk pillowcase years ago when I thought I didn't see any difference. Maybe I should revisit it.

I don't know if this is just a fashion accessory or poor design, hers was made to go with the shiny side outside, so the print looks funny and the seam is visible if you turn it with the shiny side on her hair. She's happy, she looks just like mommy!
    That is so cute, I have boys and their hair is stick straight, so I'm the only wavy/wurly in the house.

    I'm going into town later today and going to buy a new diffuser head and grab a satin pillowcase while I'm there. I've been meaning to for actual months now but it always slips my mind. Even if it doesn't "help", it seems it can't necessarily hurt either.

    I use a large square silk scarf wrapped around my head with the hair tucked in the top. It's works great and was cheap. It makes a big difference for me. If I don't my hair is a dry tangles frizzy mess in the morning. I toss and turn to much for a satin/silk pillow case to work well.

    I use both : a silk pillowcase and bonnet because silk is good for the skin and for the hair. It really makes a difference ! I wake up with good looking hair with less frizz than just wearing a protective hairstyle. The pillowcase only isn't enough tho, in my opinion, but it's a great start. My silk bonnet is from Lily silk and it's great, affordable and you can choose between different colors (really important for me haha).

    I just started doing this a few days ago! So far it seems to be working well, except it's tricky to tie the scarf in a way so that it stays intact during my tossing and turning but also isn't too tight. I have two scarves that I rotate during the week (and wash several times), and they were cheaper than multiple bonnets or pillowcases (even if I made them myself).

    I must have cotton against my face, so I can't do the silk pillowcases. And my scarves are so thin that my scalp doesn't get sweaty and aggravate my yeast issues--most bonnets are too thick and wouldn't let my scalp breathe.

    Edited to add: I must do the silk as I can't do protective updos because my scalp is incredibly tender and sensitive, and my hair is very fine. It's also only shoulder length.

    I have 2 satin and 1 silk pillow case (I've been using them for years). I like them. I can't say I have really seen a difference while using them. But I keep using them because 1) theoretically they are doing something, 2) they feel nice on my skin, 3) they are also suppose to be good for preventing wrinkles.
