    I got mine from amazon for about £15 but I've also seen them in john lewis for about £20 :) Sounds like a lot for a pillowcase but it's totally made a difference... I'd guess ebay might be cheaper? Good luck!
    3b or c? Very fine hair but lots of it!

    Newly CG (ish) and loving it so far, currently using Original Source to Co-wash, Australian Organics to condition, Trevor Sorbie curl cream and shockwaves gel. Weekly sulphate free shampoo.

    Is it worth spending more money to get hold of not-polyester satin pillowcase or does it not really make a difference? :lol:

    I ordered silk fabric from cheapfabrics.co.uk in order to make my own silk pillow cases. Are they really worth using or not :?:

    Yes, it makes a difference whether you use polyester or silk.

    Silk breathes. It's warm in cold weather, and cool in hot weather. It doesn't pull on, or leach moisture out of your hair and skin.

    Polyester can be hot and cause you to sweat. It can be overly slippery.

    Baby Fine 3B, low porosity, normal density and elasticity

    U can get 1 quite reasonable on eBay. Just search satin pillowcase and/or sleep cap.
