Taft Mulberry silk pillowcase

Product Review

Taft-pillowcase

Have you ever heard of a pillowcase made with mulberry silk that helps keep your hair shiny and frizz-free while preventing knots and breakage? 

I don’t know about you, but when I get out of bed, it usually look like I was struck by lightning. My hair is all over the place – frizzy and tangled with dents all over. Any leave-in conditioners or oils that were on my hair are no longer there, but instead all over the pillowcase. Oh, and if it was a warm night, any sweat just adds to the chaotic mess. This means I have to wash my hair in the morning or it looks dry and frizzy all-day long. 

I first saw this silk pillowcase in my IG feed as a promotion. The ad caught my attention because I hate waking up to my conditioners and oils all over my pillowcase. These products seem to stain the pillowcase. I also was intrigued by the claim of reducing hair frizz; because I live at the beach with high humidity, my hair in the mornings is nothing but frizz. In addition, the company was offering the product FREE in exchange for an honest review, I figured it was worth a shot. 

Silk pillowcase info

Mulberry silk is one of the highest quality silks made. The silk naturally contains eighteen amino acids that are often used in cosmetic products mainly for hair and skin. This allows your skin and hair to glide along the pillowcase, reducing any friction. The silk helps keep those oils and night creams on your face. It can reduce hair breakage and wrinkles while helping to keep hair silky, shiny, healthy and styled. Mulberry silk is 100% natural, odorless and hypoallergenic, making it a safe and healthy choice for bedding. The material is durable and makes some of the most luxurious silk goods.

Silk pillowcase arrives

Upon ordering my king-size pillowcase from Amazon, it took about 4-5 days to get here. It came packaged in a plastic bag and was super soft, reminding me of creamy butter. The color was a beautiful navy blue that almost shined in the light. I noticed it was a large pillowcase that felt cool to the touch. My pillow easily fit into the silky pillowcase before zipping it closed ever so smoothly. 

A Few Things to note

After trying out this pillowcase for two weeks, there were a few things I noticed. So far, this pillowcase is durable as it doesn’t catch on rough skin and there’s been no pulled threads. It’s cooling feature seems to work well as I don’t seem to sweat as much at night. In addition, I’m noticing a slight difference in my skin and hair as they seem smoother and softer as well. 

Because this is a durable yet luxurious silk, the company recommended hand-washing the pillowcase in cold water and then air dry. I washed it a few times by hand; it just takes a little extra time.

After a week, I decided to wash it in the washing machine to see what happened. It was still washed in cold water and ran on the gentle/delicate setting. It seemed to have held up just fine. 

Later, I decided to try drying it in the dryer on the lowest heat setting possible. Once again, the pillowcase did great; although it seemed to wrinkle fairly easy coming out of the dryer. After a few washes, the color has faded a little bit – it’s not such a deep blue anymore. (This may be because of the washer and dryer.)

Final Thoughts

All in all, I am happy with my Taft Mulberry Silk Pillowcase purchase. The pillowcase seems to be durable enough to withstand multiple uses as well as handling the washer and dryer well enough. It seems to help reduce hair frizz and keep my body temperature cooler at night. The company, Taft, has great customer service and were quick to respond to my emails. 

I recommend trying Taft Mulberry Silk Pillowcases. They are luxurious enough to find in a spa, yet and durable enough to put in an AirBnB. These pillowcases are super comfy, I guarantee you won’t want to lift your head off the pillow!
