        15 Best Silk Pillowcases, According to Fabric Experts

        Believe it or not, these picks can prevent bedhead and wrinkles.

        No matter what position you sleep in, you spend hours each night with your hair or face pressed up against a pillow. Turns out all that friction can cause creases that turn into wrinkles over time, not to mention bedhead that'll take longer to style in the morning. Thankfully, silk pillowcases exist to give you the beauty sleep of your dreams.

        Silk pillowcases create a smooth surface for your hair and skin to glide over – with less friction there will be less creases on your skin and less frizz in your hair. Silk also has inherent cooling capabilities and feels so luxurious to lie on. But because it's pricey and super delicate, you want to make sure you're investing in one that'll last.

        The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab has tested dozens of real silk and synthetic satin pillowcases for durability, moisture wicking properties, smoothness, and more. We also send them home with our consumer panel for real life snooze-testing. Read on to learn about our top picks, but first, here's everything you need to know about silk pillowcase benefits:

        Do silk pillowcases really make a difference?

        Yes, when it comes to bedhead and wrinkles! Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but dermatologists say that a silky smooth surface can reduce this effect in the long run. Similarly, with less friction on your hair, you're less likely to wake with frizz and tangles. But keep in mind: you should always be wary of unrealistic promises and you can't expect major changes like fewer breakouts, amino acid absorption, or anti-aging benefits.

        What momme silk is best?

        Instead of thread count, silk fabrics use momme – i.e. fabric weight. You'll usually find a range of 15-30 momme, but in our tests the top performers were 22 momme or higher.

        What's the difference between silk and satin?

        Silk is a fiber, whereas satin is the weave. Most silk pillowcases are both silk and satin, but you can find satin pillowcases made of polyester for a lower price. Mulberry is the highest quality of silk you can find. Think of it as the Egyptian cotton equivalent of silk: The fibers are longer and more uniform so the fabric is smoother and more durable. Faux silk pillowcases won't feel as luxurious, but they can give you the same smoothness benefits (plus some added durability).

        Here are the best silk pillowcases to buy this year:

        Not only is this one the winner of our test, it's also a Good Housekeeping Seal holder (so if it's damaged or defective within two years, Good Housekeeping will give you a refund). It was strong and moisture-wicking in our Lab evaluations, and at-home users told us it was comfy to sleep on and kept them cool at night. And though it's not inexpensive for a pillowcase, it's still half the price of other silk options.

        You only sleep on one side of the pillowcase, so why should you have to pay for it on both? This genius design has a cotton underside to make it affordable, with a 100% silk fabric on top. It's only 19 momme so it may feel slightly thinner, but it's a steal at under $20. Plus, the brand sells 22 and 25 momme variations for a higher price.

        This one's Amazon's Choice for silk pillowcases, even though it's not actually made with any silk. Instead, the fabric is polyester satin so it's less expensive and less fragile. It also has over 35,000  reviews with an average 4.5-star rating, and because it's sold as a set of two, each pillowcase costs less than $5!

        If you can't get used to the slippery feel of silk satin, this one is more matte, but still smoother than cotton fabric. The brand says this is because the silk is taken from the cocoon after the moth has already left it, unlike traditional silk fabrics. The case is also undyed to lessen the environmental impact. 

        • Ethically sourced silk
        • No dyes means it's more sustainable

        This silk pillowcase is knit (others are woven) and blended with spandex so it's stretchy and fits perfectly onto the memory foam pillow that it's sold with. Our testers said the set felt comfy to sleep on and helped control bedhead, though some thought the overall size seemed a bit small. The pillowcase also shrunk in our wash tests, but it was the most wrinkle resistant.  

        • Smooth, wrinkle resistant fabric of 95% silk, 5% spandex
        • Sold with a foam pillow

        • Fabric shrunk in wash tests
