How much sleep you get each night is extremely important. If you don’t get a lot of sleep, chances are you’re going to be grumpy and not on your A-game the following day. Newborns sleep a total of 10.5 to 18 hours a day, but as adults, we need just about eight hours. Lack of sleep can often be due to sickness, living arrangements, or the fact that you’re still in college and have to pull your fifth all-nighter this semester. But lack of sleep can also be due to the fact that your bedding isn’t as comfortable as it could be.
It’s the age-old pillowcase question: Which is better — cotton or satin pillowcases? If you are currently stuck with the option of satin or cotton pillowcases, here is a lit of what you need to know about each of them.
Cotton pillowcases are extremely comfortable if you’re looking for a really good night’s sleep, but if you have curly hair, you’re going to regret laying your head on them. Cotton is an absorbent fabric which means while you sleep the pillowcase may absorb some moisture from your hair and cause a few tangles. On the bright side though, cotton is very breathable in perfect for warmer climates where you want to lay on something that will keep you cool. Say hello to an excellent night’s sleep during those hot summer months! In addition, cotton stays soft throughout its lifetime and gets more comfortable with every wash.
Satin pillowcases are perfect for the curly haired people of the world as they are extremely smooth, won’t absorb moisture, and won’t create friction. Many people confuse satin pillowcases with silk pillowcases, but it’s important to note that satin is man-made and silk isn’t. Satin is made of a synthetic fiber. It’s not as expensive as silk pillowcases, and can also be used for decorative pillow or boudoir pillow cases. Boudoir pillow cases are perfect for any room in the house, so keep that in mind when picking out the perfect types.
Sleep is extremely important and isn’t successful solely based on the white cotton dresses or white nightshirts you wear to bed. It’s also based on what you’re laying your head on. Now that you know a little bit more about these two types of fabric for pillowcases and if they can be used as boudoir pillow cases or not, which are you going to choose?
