Can silk pillowcases lead to shinier hair?

If you’re trying to improve the health of your hair, sleeping on silk pillowcases is the way to go. The reason? Silk is smooth and soft, which helps minimise static on hair—and mitigates other hair-related concerns. Friction from cotton can disrupt the cuticle layer, leading to frizz, breakage, sleep crease, and dry strands. Silk doesn’t absorb or pull moisture from your skin the way traditional cotton pillowcases do, leaving hair hydrated and frizz-free.

What silk pillowcases can do for different hair types? 
Sleeping on silk pillowcase is especially beneficial for those with textured or curly hair, as strands will look less dehydrated, shinier, and more defined. . Silk pillowcases are also beneficial for those with straight or wavy hair. Silk pillowcases don't absorb natural oils from your hair, leaving your hair nourished. And if you like to blow out your hair, these pillowcases can even extend the life of the style. This is because silk encourages the cuticles of your hair to lay flat, resulting in silky smooth strands.
