Before choosing a pillow, we should first understand the pillow (kind, advantages and disadvantages, sleep experience).
One: chemical fiber pillow
Pros: Low price
Disadvantages: poor breathability, easy to knot and block, lack of elasticity
Sleeping experience: cheap but not practical. Basically, this kind of pillow is distributed uniformly by the school. Although the price is cheap, there is no pursuit for sleep quality, and it is just a pillow.
2: Down pillow
Advantages: excellent softness, good moisturizing type, lighter texture, and good fit
Cons: slightly higher price
Sleep experience: easy to use but not easy to clean. If you like pillows with harder sleeping materials, we don't recommend buying down pillows. The down pillow's sleeping experience is more like sleeping on a fluffy cotton, which is soft enough, but after a long sleep, it will really cause headaches.
And the down pillow has higher requirements for cleaning conditions, and it will be more troublesome without time and energy.
Three: buckwheat pillow buckwheat pillow, we have more contact, but also a more common type of pillow. Pillows are filled with buckwheat husks, mung bean husks, millet, and silkworm sand.
Advantages: It can effectively prevent cervical spondylosis, light weight such as buckwheat husk as filling, can change shape with the movement of the head, meet your sleep needs, warm in winter and cool in summer, and can be adjusted with the season.
Disadvantages: not suitable for cleaning, only drying.
Sleep experience: The buckwheat pillow should be a pillow with relatively high coverage. The texture is hard, and the little fairy who likes to sleep on the pillows can try it. Also, be sure to dry it regularly, otherwise odors are likely to occur.
Four: memory pillow
Advantages: high density, weight, breathable, shock-absorbing
Disadvantages: no experience of memory function, poor resilience
Sleep Feeling: The memory pillow has been sleeping for a while and has not felt special enjoyment. It is an ordinary pillow; but there are also people who really like the sleep texture of the memory pillow. This depends on specific personal preferences and sleep experience.
Five: latex pillow
Advantages: natural latex itself has super breathability and good ventilation; soft and comfortable texture, good contact feeling; good elasticity, not easy to deform, good-looking; has anti-mite and dust removal characteristics, strong self-cleaning ability; easy to clean, can be directly Rinse with water
Disadvantages: can not be exposed to the sun, the price is slightly higher
After sleeping so many pillows, I found that some pillows are not just for sleeping. The inherent advantages of latex materials determine the comfort of latex pillows, which are largely better than pillows made of other materials.
Having said all this, how do you choose a good pillow?
In three steps:
1. Look at the material
If you like hard pillow, you can try memory cotton and buckwheat pillow
Like softer, you can try down pillow
If you like soft and hard, you can buy latex pillows
2. Look at the height
Normally, a pillow with a height of 10 to 15 cm is appropriate.
If the pillow is too high, it is prone to brain weakness such as neck aches, headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, and insomnia, or numbness in hands and feet when sleeping halfway; if the pillow is too low, it is prone to facial swelling and burping.
However, the specific height should still be selected according to personal needs. Generally speaking, the shoulder width body fat person pillow can be slightly higher, while the thin person can be slightly lower.
3. Try to sleep
Yes, the pillows need to test sleep. The same pillow, two different people sleeping, may feel differently. Therefore, in order to ensure that this pillow is really suitable for you, you can spend more time and try to sleep, it is really suitable to start with, it is better.
