These were scary when I first took them out of the package - they were stiff and scratchy. I almost sent them right back, but thought I'd wash them and see how they ended up. Wow...for the price, these are excellent. Soft, slick, and cool to sleep on, which is exactly what I wanted. I'm going to be buying more soon!
I bought these pillowcases because they don't cause my curly hair to develop knots overnight. I could have simply sewn some pillowcases, but didn't want to spend time on doing so as long as I could find some in the right color, and these come in lots of colors. They're a bit thin, as far as satin goes, and my cat has already snagged them multiple times, but they do work with my hair!
The pillowcases are nice and soft and feel good to sleep on. However, the main reason I bought them was to keep my curls curly at night and they have not made a difference at all. So if this is the primary reason you're considering them I wouldn't do it. However, if you want a smooth feel on your face they will fit the bill.
These were on sale and I took a chance and ordered the cases as the silky material keeps my daughter's long hair from tangling. The cases were so stiff that it took 4 wash/dry cycles to soften them up. They are cheap polyester (got what I paid for) and have been in the package so long that the fold marks are permanently imprinted on the fabric.
i would like 2 say first that I am a long time customer of overstock.first , I never received a tracking code.i talked with a rep about it the same day I was supposed 2 receive it and he didn't know.he said he would follow up on it and let me know..he didn't.he also told me he would have the shipping department email me..they didn't..i got the slip fron fed-ex 2 days later.seems like ever since cobongo took over shipping,its been a gong show..also,my order was just thrown into a box and the sides of the pakages were slit open..also,looks like they have been sat on or something because they were pretty badly bent over.i am very disappointed this time around.no wonder we have 2 pay added insurance because people don't care .after all,its a Canadian order but then,i wouldn't ever ship a product from my shop that was damaged in any way..but then,i actually care about what I do.
