10 Silky Sleep Aids For Your Healthiest Hair Yet

Cotton pillowcases and textured hair are not a healthy combination. Because it absorbs the essential oils needed to nourish your locks, this fabric actually leaves you prone to breakage. To maintain the health of your hair, opt for silky sleep aids instead. Silk and the more affordable satin keep hair from tangling because strands slide against the material, instead of attaching to it. Shop our favorite bonnets and pillowcases below.
