Hullo Pillow Reviews

Goodbye Stiff Neck

I was waking up with a stiff neck more and more. Did lots of research and settled on the Hullo. Glad I did. It’s supportive but also incredibly comfortable. I also love the weight.

First Pillow I’ve Ever Loved!

I love that it holds it’s shape and stays cool. I no longer flip my pillow throughout the night to puff up feathers or get the cool side. The only small complaint I can make is that it’s louder than a normal pillow, but since I don’t have to continuously flip it it doesn’t bother my wife.

Where Has This Pillow Been All My Life?

This pillow solves several issues for me. It is comfortable. When I lay on the pillow the buckwheat kernels adjust to my head and neck to provide support all night. I am allergic to feather pillows. Like foam pillows, they both compress and need adjusting through the night. Thank you, hullo, for making a great pillow.

Pleased in 87144

I’ve tried several pillow types to accommodate for my new side sleeping method. All others flatten and don’t hold my head stable. 1st night with Hullo solved my pillow issues.

Life Changer!

I had been racked w/ neck and back pain for over a year. Much of my pain was due to bad work space ergonomics, but also I came to realize that my sleeping arrangement was also a problem. After reading/ researching all of the side-sleep pillows I settled on the Hullo, as I cannot abide by foam pillows so Hullo was a natural choice (pun intended). After less than a month my neck pain had completely disappeared. Literally overnight. I cannot recommend the pillow enough. I took out about 20% of the hulls, only so our pillow cases could accommodate. I made a cat bed out of the excess. I think they’re sleeping better as well!

Great Pillow!

I love the size. Most other companies that make buckwheat pillows don’t have large ones (because they’re so heavy?). I’ve slept better than a lazy cat since getting my Hullo pillows!

Not As Great As Expected

I’ve had my hullo pillow for almost three months now. After reading so many rave reviews I had high expectations but I can’t say it resolved my neck pain and tightness and it’s not the most comfy pillow I’ve ever had but then that’s perhaps not what one should expect from a buckwheat pillow. But it didn’t make my neck pain worse either and while it feels rather hard, overall I still sleep better on it than on a regular, small or a memory foam pillow made especially to support the neck. I like the size of the pillow but find the filling quite voluminous and will experiment next with removing some of the buckwheat content to see if that makes it feel better. I thought about returning it and think it’s great that the company offers that option but I’ve decided to keep it.

I would recommend Hullo to a friend.

Didn’t Do Much Good for Me

I waited too long before I tried the pillow, so I’m too late to request a refund. My bad. I tried it every night for 3 weeks. During that time I did adjust the buckwheat content level a few times trying to achieve a better outcome. But, I developed some neck & shoulder pain. I had to stop using the pillow and my neck & shoulder pain have lessened. Just not for me.

Finally a Pillow That Holds Up My Head!

It’s oddly comfortable. I added some hulls that Hullo sent to make it a little thicker. It’s the best thing that’s happened to my neck in a while.

Nice but… Can You Make a Pillow Case to Go With?

I really like this Small Buckwheat Pillow, but the size I bought (great for travel) has made it impossible for me to find a pillowcase that fits it. If you’re going to make a weirdo-size pillow, at least sell a case to go with. No one sells this size case. I guess i’ll have to make my own. Annoying.

Had to Buy a Second Hullo Pillow

Had my first Hullo pillow for a few years and slept with it comfortably. Then our aging cat had an ‘accident’. The pillow was thrown out and I slept with a regular one. It took me only two or three night to decide to buy a new one!

Perfect Pillow

We have tried so many pillows and was never able to one that is comfortable. Either too soft or too hard. We are so happy we gave Hullo Pillows a try. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

Not Cooling

It’s ok. Quite expensive and worse in most ways than my $20 pillows.

It Took Some Fiddling

The first week was rough – my neck was so stiff! Then I finally started taking out hulls, and things got better… and I took our more hulls, and things got better… I took out a total of 6.5 cups, and now I don’t want to sleep on anything else!

Amazing Pillow

I bought this pillow for my husband a few months ago.  Over the past few years, we have bought him several pillows, none of which have worked for him.  Every morning he would wake up complaining about his pillow. I thought I would give Hullo a try.  This pillow has been perfect!  Zero complaints. For months.  This is saying something coming from a very picky pillow man!

Wonderful Pillow!

I am so happy with this purchase that I brought one for a gift for my son!  I have enjoyed this pillow since the first night; it really does stay cool.  Having a pillow that is nice and firm is wonderful. Just like the description says, you put your head on it and it forms to your head and neck.  I started shopping for a new pillow because I was waking up almost every morning with a headache, since getting the Hullo the headaches have almost disappeared.  It is well worth the extra money to have a great purchase.  My son is also enjoying his and no longer has to flip to the cool side.

It Was Worth a Try

I have had neck pain for years. A physical therapist suggested that I try a buckwheat pillow. So I ordered the Hullo small and have used it for months now to thoroughly give it a try. Unfortunately, my neck pain increased and I began having headaches which I am certain was associated with the pillow use. Removing  some of the fill didn’t help. I stopped using the pillow and though my chronic neck issues are still present the increased neck pain and headaches are gone.

LOVE My Hullo!

I LOVE my Hullo (14 x 20). I’ve had buckwheat and millet pillows in the past, but the hulls weren’t as fresh as these are, which actually makes a big difference. If you haven’t used a buckwheat pillow before, they are somewhat firm. They are also adjustable in two ways – the first way you can adjust these pillows is by adding or subtract hulls so that your head is cradled just right. The amount I took out seems minimal, but it made a huge difference for me. I played around with it quite a bit before settling on the right amount, and I kept the extra hulls around in case I need them later.

The second way the Hullo is adjustable is that you can move the hulls around so they best cradle your head each time you move.

There is a rustling noise as you adjust the pillow and the buckwheat settles into place. It might bother some people, but I find it very relaxing.

I Own 6 Hullo Pillows

I own two at my home, one at my in-laws for when I visit, a travel pillow and a couple at my parent’s house. Needless to say, I literally can’t sleep without one.

Heavy But Comfortable

It is a heavy pillow but comfortable. It’s cool feeling and the hulls shape to the contour of your neck and head. I’m a stomach sleeper and I’m real comfortable with the pillow. I have tried many other pillows but I like the Hullo the best.

Fits Perfectly Around My Neck!

I got the small size, which is perfect for this type of pillow. Typically I don’t like a big, firm pillow, just a bit to keep my neck straight. The buckwheat is firm, but it can be molded around your neck and head the way you like. I had to play around with the amount of buckwheat filling, trying less, then more, then less, etc.  I seem to like it somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 full. By that, I mean if I hold the pillow by the zipper end, the buckwheat flows to the bottom of the pillow a bit below the halfway mark and the top portion is empty. Too full, and the buckwheat flows less easily and it starts to feel too hard. So if you think it’s too hard, remove some of the filling and see how that feels. On the downside, it looks rather deflated on the bed, lol!

Usually I pull the pillow to mostly go under my neck. If that’s not perfect, then I push my head in a little. Sometimes I’ll just take my fist and punch a little hole for the back of my head. It’s like sand in that way, will stay the way you form it. When I change position, it usually adjusts with my movement. If not, I either use my hand to reform the shape or I give my head a tiny turn or two to dig in.

Have not gone back to a regular pillow for sleeping, but having fluffy ones for looks might be a good idea if that is important to you. If you get the small size, I suggest you look for a video online to show how to put it in a regular pillowcase so it fits perfectly and looks really nice (and less deflated!). I put mine in sideways which works well.

The Perfect Pillow

I love, love, love my Hullo pillow that I have been sleeping on for two months. My cranial bones located in my occipital area have been tender for many years. This pillow cradles my head perfectly. One might think that the hard buckwheat hulls would be uncomfortable however it’s quite the opposite. At first the pillows seemed a bit full for my liking but, the pillow has a nice zipper and I was able to remove 4 cups of hulls and that seemed to work well for me. I highly recommend this pillow and if you are unsure because of the cost it is completely worth it and comes with a money back guarantee. I also love that it is a Minnesota company, made an America:) Thank you Hullo.
