Bamboo Pillows vs Normal Pillows

We all may have heard of the wonders of bamboo pillows. Especially when it comes to the pillows ability to cool your skin at night with a breathable surface and support for the weight of your head. But would buying a bamboo pillow make any difference than sleeping on a normal pillow?

Compared to normal pillows, bamboo pillows are stuffed with shredded memory foam and covered with a bamboo fabric. A normal conventional pillow may only be stuffed with the general cotton, wool, or feather. However, the huge difference between the two in terms of comfort is that when resting on a bamboo pillow, the pillow does not absorb as much body heat as compared to other pillows, which will leave you cool and comfortable for the rest of the night. Also, bamboo fabric helps to clean any sort of harmful allergens, dust mites and fungal bacterial that pollutes the air around you. Normal pillows don’t necessarily have any sort of antibacterial properties, therefore without regular cleaning for your normal pillows, they can be a breeding ground for pests and dust mites.

Bamboo pillows are also recommended for those with asthma or any other type of allergies that may contribute to sleeping troubles. Furthermore, normal pillows do not have as much support as bamboo pillows which could cause people with back problems to get uncomfortable. Bamboo pillow reviews on the best bamboo pillows  also showed that these pillows are best for pregnant women as well as the bamboo fabric easily molds according to the person’s shape which brings in more comfort to sleep on.

However, the only downside about having a bamboo pillow is that cleaning them requires hand-washing and they take a long time to dry, while a normal pillow works by just machine washing them and tossing them into a dryer.
