These pillowcases are great for saving my hairstyle, which is shoulder length. I no longer wake up with an awful bed head. They are also supposed to be better for the face by preventing wrinkles if you are a side or stomach sleeper, but that benefit I cannot support or deny. The only downside is that they slip off the pillow easily. Other than that, I love my new cases! Bought 'em in 3 colors!
