Getting a good night sleep is hard! While few things are more natural than sleeping when tired, modern life gets in the way. For me, the right pillow is essential. Once I unwind, relaxing with good alignment is essential. My new memory foam bamboo pillow from The Original Bamboo help me maintain the right position for sleep.
Original Bamboo submitted “The Original Bamboo Pillow” for testing and review. This is a memory foam pillow with a removable bamboo cloth cover.
My Experience Using “The Original Bamboo Pillow”:
First the bad… Right away, I was struck with the strong chemical smell. Having a chemist in the family, I get scolded for casually referring to things as “chemical”, but I don’t really know any other way to describe this smell. It is that over-powering smell a lot of new items have. I foolishly tried to sleep with it and woke up with a nasty headache and my scalp and neck felt itchy! I immediately put it in the extra room and returned to my old pillow.
Don’t do what I did! I suggest that you remove the cover and wash it before using it. And let the pillow air out. I let mine air a few days. Then it was good to go.
Now the good, once the smell was gone it is a really nice pillow! I have reoccurring neck and shoulder injuries so sometimes when I sleep wrong I wake up in intense pain. I can avoid this with an elaborate configuration of pillows to support my head. This is why I was so interested in a memory foam pillow. As it turns out the pillow just forms the right configuration to support my head. Sleep has been much less painful.
I find the pillow to have just the right level of firmness for me. I like a little give in a pillow. I am able to fluff it up nicely.
Conclusion, once the “chemical scent” is gone, this is a very nice, comfortable pillow that can promote healthy alignment.
From The Seller Original Bamboo:
Here is the product description from Original Bamboo:
The Original Bamboo Pillow gently supports your head, neck, and shoulders allowing you to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up feeling incredible every single day.
Perfect sleep is accomplished by a few special features. First the Original Bamboo Pillow is filled with SHREDDED memory foam. This means that you can fluff and adjust the pillow to whatever size or shape you need… you cannot do this with traditional memory foam pillows!
Have you ever woken up because your pillow was too hot for comfort? A combination of the shredded memory foam and the highly breathable bamboo cover allow the pillow to stay cool all night.
Speaking of the bamboo cover… This design feature is one of the best! Our pillows feature a special bamboo woven design with antibacterial properties. No need to worry about allergies, dust mites, and any other nasty parasite! Stay clean and stay green, with the power of bamboo! The only eco-friendly pillow solution.
