Kinky and coily hair is going through a hair care renaissance right now and it’s long overdue. Giving our hair undivided attention isn’t just an act of self-care, it’s a necessity. If you’ve been noticing the increased presence of hair bonnets on social media that’s because it’s not some fashion statement or extra step. We all need to be wearing a hair bonnet to bed every night, and here are a few reasons why.
1. Protects Your Hairstyle
If you’ve decided to style your hair a certain way for the week and you want minimal daily maintenance on that style, a satin hair bonnet is going to reduce any friction and hold that style in place. And if you’re not wearing your hair in a particular style, that lack of friction is going to be helpful for keeping those curls less frizzy.
2. Retains Moisture on Your Hair
How many times have you applied product to your hair at night (usually a moisturizer), only to wake up in the morning to it being slathered all over your pillow or sheets? The best time to moisturize your hair is at night, before you go to sleep, when the temperature and environment is consistent. A satin hair bonnet will help keep that moisture on your hair where it belongs.
3. Prevents Tangles and Knots
If you’re a restless sleeper, you likely flip frequently in your sleep. If you have kinky or coily hair, this can be an absolute nightmare to deal with in the morning if you don’t sleep with a satin bonnet. Whether you’re just trying to get the kids off to school, hop in front of a Zoom call or get ready for the day, dealing with a head full of tangles probably didn’t make the shortlist of things you need to get done in a day. Pop a satin bonnet on your head before bedtime and you won’t regret it.
4. No More Hair Headaches
If you’ve been tying your hair up, braiding or twisting your hair extra tight at night to maintain the style or retain the moisture, you can relax a little. No one deserves to wake up from a restful night’s sleep, only to start their day with a bad headache. Beauty does NOT need to mean pain. Once you’ve moisturized your hair and placed it in a protective style (or not) slide on your satin bonnet. You’ll immediately notice it feels secure over your hair, but loose enough that your protective styles won’t deform or become fuzzy.
5. Affordable Fix for a Costly Problem
Whether you’ve just dropped a ton of cash on an expensive hairstyle or you’re just trying to save yourself some precious time in the morning and look like the beautiful human that you are, satin bonnets are going to save you time and money. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to protect your braids, twists, locs or whatever else you decide to do with your hair.
