If you spend as much time in your bed as I do, choosing a great pillow is probably pretty high on your list of priorities. Loads of people are turning to the best bamboo pillows to improve their quality of sleep, and for a good reason. Bamboo has a lot of benefits when used as a material in household items, which is why everything from toothbrush companies to air fresheners are adding it to their labels.
For starters, because bamboo grows extremely fast, it's considered an eco-friendly material. And, as someone who sleeps on bamboo sheets and uses a bamboo hair towel, I can tell you that as a fabric, it's so much softer, more breathable, and moisture-wicking than cotton or synthetic fibers — which makes it a must if you tend to overheat at night. Not only will bamboo pillows help to keep you cooler at night, but the moisture-wicking properties can help keep nighttime sweaters drier, too. Pair your bamboo pillow with a soft silk pillowcase and you're all set for a cool, comfortable night of rest.
Whether you're looking for neck support, breathability, or something that prevents dust mites, these highly rated bamboo pillows are definitely worth a try.
