I am one of those who got pretty excited over the hype of satin bonnet . In today’s blog post we are going to discuss if they are worth investing in.
Not only do satin Bonnets keep the hair well moisturized they also save your natural hair from Breakage, allows less friction between your hair and other surfaces, no more dry hair, fewer tangles, and thinning.
Sleeping in a satin hair bonnet is excellent for keeping your natural hair in good condition while you sleep. Satin is less harsh on your hair than the normal cotton doeks, making it a better alternative in most cases. An alternative for satin Bonnets it’s silk Bonnets – if you are into natural fibers. For me, I found out about Bonnets about 2/3 years ago when I was doing some research on natural hair. I have been hooked ever since. I’m pretty sure you have asked yourself whether satin Bonnets are only suitable for people with natural hair and honey everyone should invest in, it doesn’t limit you on the type of hair you have.
I am loving how cost-effective and easily accessible satin Bonnets are. They preserve our hair styles and hair for quite some time. I love how using satin Bonnets has made the use of my hair products more lengthy. I can go up to two months using a good butter now. Let’s not forget how almost every beauty store and grocery store now sells satin Bonnets and a whole lot of them are at quite a reasonable price. If I planned my things right I’d have 7, in different colors, one for each day.
I have heard quite a few people complain about how the bonnet slips off their head at night, according to my experience that is a result of using the bonnet for a while until the elastic is too loose and even getting a size too big the elastic has stretched out. I know I’m due for getting a new one. I’ve had this one for a minute now and it now slips off in my sleep.
Here are some of the benefits of using a satin bonnet/doek:
When you toss and turn at night, it can cause your hair to get easily tangled. If you have finer straight hair, gently brush out your hair to remove any knots then twist your hair at the top of your head and cover it using a bonnet.
Wearing a bonnet helps prevent friction while you sleep at night, therefore reducing the amount of frizz you wake up with. Having your hair protected alleviates stress and helps to prevent split ends.
As much as we love those high thread count cotton sheets, they can absorb moisture from our hair, causing dryness. Besides conditioning our hair after we shampoo to retain moisture, using a bonnet or silk pillowcase will help while you sleep by reducing the chance of breakage.
Bonnets make your hair more manageable in the long run, alleviating the need for lots of styling products.
A lot of women invest some serious money in hair products, especially for protecting their hair at night. Since bonnets don’t absorb hair products as cotton does, you’ll need fewer products to style your hair.
