It's not you. It's your sheets Sis!

Ladies you may wonder why your hair growth has stalled. You are exercising and drinking water and using a bomb $17 conditioner. Well it may not be you. It may be your sheets. I love a good sheet set. I use jersey sheets during the summer and flannel sheets during the winter. I don't like cotton like most people do no matter the thread count. No matter the material jersey, flannel or cotton pillowcases are known to absorb the oils from your hair and skin, which can leave them dry, brittle and prone to breakage.

Have you been waking up in the morning with dry, frizzy and tangled hair? If the answer is yes, you might want to take a closer look at your pillowcase. Most people sleep on jersey, flannel or cotton pillowcases, but they can contribute to ongoing hair problems, including:

1. Knots

Often the rough cotton fibers of your pillowcase prevent your hair from sliding around easily, resulting in a tangled mess when you wake up in the morning. Snarled hair takes longer to style and yanking on your roots with aggressive brushing can pull some of your hair out and lead to breakage.

2. Damaged Hair

As you’re tossing and turning at night, your hair is rubbing against the jersey, flannel or cotton fibers of your pillowcase, which can cause your hair to break. Repeated breakage can ultimately make your hair looks thinner over all.

3. Frizzy Hair

To avoid frizz, it’s especially important to dry your hair before going to bed. Wet hair can create even more friction against your pillowcase while you sleep.

4. Dry Hair

Jersey, flannel or cotton pillowcases are known to absorb the oils from your hair and skin, which can leave them dry, brittle and prone to breakage.


The good news is all these problems are easily addressed by switching to a silk pillowcase. Silk allows the hair to slide around on your pillow effortlessly, so you wake to smoother hair. This luxurious fabric also helps your hair retain its moisture, since it’s not as absorbent as cotton. If you really love your jersey, flannel or cotton pillowcase and aren’t ready to make the switch, just wrap your hair in a silk scarf to keep it protected when you’re sleeping. Silk scarfs do slip off, especially if you sleep as wild as I do. So purchase a silk scarf from LovGia Organics to protect your hair from your sheets and watch your hair thrive!!



Love, Gia
