Hullo Pillow Reviews

Bren

Keeps Its Support

Great pillow, very high quality materials throughout. If you need head support without your pillow going flat after a few months this is the pillow for you.

I’m a side sleeper and kept having side neck and shoulder pain so I switched to the Hullo. Definitely better support and has improved my posture while I sleep by preventing my head from craning downward into my shoulder.

Should’ve bought the larger size but I couldn’t justify it for a pillow at the time, which is ironic because of how much we sleep. Will buy the larger size when I can afford to, the smallest size works just fine and will use when traveling.

I would recommend Hullo to a friend.

Good Thickness, Doesn’t Go Flat When You Sleep on It

If you move around a lot in bed, constantly switching sides, then this pillow will tend to get harder. If you lay still for the most part, you shouldn’t have any trouble, but as someone who tosses and turns, the pillow is usually somewhat hard and flat by the time I wake up. That being said, it’s still my favorite pillow.

You’re not paying for cotton, feathers, or foam. You’re paying for a surprisingly comfortable bean bag designed with the head in mind. This is a premium pillow at a less-than-premium price.

So, what are buckwheat hulls? I don’t know, but they are so light in weight, that if you hold some in your hand and blow on them slightly, they will fly out of your hand. The closest thing I can compare them to is the thin, brown, plasticky material you pull out of your teeth after eating popcorn. The pillow, however, is pretty heavy, considering I just ordered the small one. That’s probably because of the shear quantity of material inside. The fabric that houses the hulls is very nice-feeling and relatively thick, too, and the zipper is very robust, so you shouldn’t have to worry about the hulls spilling out.

You can’t really prop up the Hullo to become a headrest to watch TV or use your phone in bed with the small pillow because it likes to abide by the laws of gravity. If you place it upright, it becomes a burrito shape, but if you keep it flat, it stays a pillow shape. I use a different pillow for sitting up. Bottom line: it’s a really good pillow, and a unique one at that. If you don’t like it, you can return it before 60 days.

I used a promo code for free shipping to order the small Hullo pillow. The medium is probably much better, but since the pillow retains its thickness throughout the night, there’s no need for me to upgrade, personally. The main reason why most people think they need a BIG pillow is because they want a thick pillow. As a wise man once said, it’s about the girth, not the length.

The Pillow Case Makes It the Best out There by Far

I’ve used millet pillows for years, but after awhile they start to flatten. The same thing will happen with Buckwheat as well. The main difference is the container that will hold the material. Weak zippers and no way to protect the zipper has been the main failure (for me). The zipper is robust on this and takes intention to get it to move. This is what is making me right now a believer in this company.

Arthritic Neck and Spine Find Relief via the Hullo Buckwheat Pillow

I wasn’t sure I’d like a buckwheat pillow because of the hardness of the hulls. I couldn’t wrap my head around finding comfort lying on top of buckwheat hulls. I’m so, so happy I decided to try a Hullo pillow out. I have arthritis in my neck and it causes such pain and discomfort. I’d wake up with headaches and went through so, so, so many pillows and money thrown at them that I was in despair. I’m grateful this pillow actually does what it offers to do. I wake up now with no neck pain most days. I’m just so grateful and so happy–so much so, that I bought one for my husband, too, and now he doesn’t rub his neck in the mornings like he used to. I’ll probably get more hulls for mine since it needs more loft.

Neck Support & Less Snoring

My old pillow was molded with a neck rest. I hadn’t replaced it in years and the neck rest was starting to flatten. In the mornings, my neck ached, so I knew it was time for a new pillow. Around this time, I also started snoring and snorting myself awake because I wasn’t getting enough air. I remembered a pillow from a Japanese ryokan that had felt hard the first night, but I ended up loving after our stay. I failed to find that pillow, but came across Hullo. Wow! I’ve been using it for 3 months. My neck doesn’t hurt in the mornings and my snoring has lessened.

Based on the reviews, I got the smaller pillow. As recommended, I took some of the filling out over subsequent nights until I found the right comfort level for me. It is noisy if you toss and turn a lot, but I’ve found that once it’s in the crater shape I want (lots of hulls in a U shape under the neck), it cradles my head and I don’t move much during the night. I ended up emptying about half the hulls and am not sure what to do with the excess. The pillow material is durable and the tuck away zipper made it easy to adjust the filling while still being secure when closed.

Great Pillow

My Hullo pillow was recommended to me by a physical therapist that I’d been seeing for neck issues.  While I still have some ongoing issues with my neck, my pillow has helped a lot.  I like to sleep on my side, so find it very comfortable and the fit is right.  I did have to take some of the hulls out as it was too full, but that’s simple to do and it made it a much better size/fit for me.  Great pillow, but you should know, that it’s heavy!  The material is well made and appears to be of a very high quality.  I definitely recommend it.

Best So Far

This pillow is pretty much exactly as I expected it to be. It did not take long to get used to it, and after a few days I started taking hulls out, 2 cups at a time, to find what worked for me. This pillow provides good support. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is, I would like to have a little padding around the hulls. I think a pillow with hulls for the core and then a little padding around that would be ideal. I need support for my neck and back but also like a little cush around my head. Other than that, it’s exactly what I wanted.

Excellent Head Support

I’m an extreme slide-sleeper. I only sleep on my back by accident. Hullo took 2-3 weeks to get used to – mainly it was a bit hard on my ear at the beginning but after a few weeks, no more. Clearly the human body is pretty adaptive (although I can’t train myself to sleep on my back). Hullo clearly supports my neck and my head, and is stable enough to keep my shoulder from digging in to the mattress & neck and cause day-long pain. Without Hullo, my shoulder would ALWAYS end up hurting by the morning as it took the brunt of my head’s weight and more. I figure this is because most pillows compress into hard as a rock over night – Buckwheat does not.

The trick is to have a thin bit of Hullo rest between my head and my shoulder, and bam, the pressure is off my shoulder and I feel no pain by the end of the night. My head doesn’t slowly sink. It stays where it needs to. Some buckwheat hulls may migrate elsewhere, but a quick “fluff” puts them back. As a side sleeper, it could use a bit more hulls than what is shipped by default but usually it’s enough. I tried to remove some hulls and that did not work for me. Guess I’m a hard core side sleeper. Anyway, this is so far the best pillow I’ve used and I’ve been through far too many.

This seems like it may be the last type of pillow to try; I’m very happy with it and it’s typically quite comfortable. Off-nights are to be expected, but more often than not, Hullo keeps my neck and shoulder from hurting! Yay!

Finally I Can Sleep

This deserves more than five stars!

I tried almost all top reviewed pillows: memory foam, silicone mesh and even feather pillows! Finally I can sleep deeply and wake up with no headache nor neck pain. My roommate had the same issue until I referred him to Hullo!

I highly recommend this pillow and I really appreciate the professional customer service.
