A Naturallycurly.com reader asks:

I have what may seem like a really silly question. As far as pillowcases and hair ties are concerned, is polyester as effective as silk or satin? I have satin pillow cases but I’ve had the hardest time finding satin hair scarves (besides the ones that only cover the top portion of your head and ties around the back). Nonetheless, I found some scarves that “look” like satin but say ‘polyester’ on the tag. I’m not sure if this questions is appropriate for NaturallyCurly.com since it’s more about fabric info than hair! I’ve read a few forums on the website but it seems no one really knows for sure!

What’s your pillow case and scarf made of?
