To my fellow curlies - you get what you pay for
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2020
I do believe this is real silk, however I suspect it is low quality. Compared to my mulberry silk scarf, it is really not soft. Running my hand over it feels a bit rough, and not very "silky." I'm a little suspicious as well since the inside of the pillowcase is not shiny like the outside. It's definitely not a satin weave, so I believe it was treated with something to make the outside seem smoother and shinier than it really is.
I have curly hair that is prone to frizz. I slept on this last night and upon feeling the friction against my skin, immediately knew it wasn't going to work out well. First thing in the morning, I looked in the mirror and the frizz was more comparable to a normal cotton pillowcase. So I put my satin pillowcase back on, which I prefer due to its shine and slip - something us curlies are really looking for in a fabric.
Unfortunately if this was as high quality silk as the seller leads on, it would cost 2-3 times as much as it does. It's one of those things you can't work around when it comes to quality. I would call this more of an "off brand" version of good silk. And since my satin pillowcase works like a charm, I'll just stick with that.
