Need something to keep your hair lint-free and in place? The Dreadsock may be just what you’re looking for.
The Dreadsock comes in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Julian Burke, the company’s founder and president, sent me a royal blue one in medium for review.
The Dreadsock is 80% polyester and 20% spandex, and feels almost identical to the hair bonnets found in beauty supply stores. According to the website, the Dreadsock locks in moisture, protects your hair from debris, and allows your hair to fall back naturally.
But does it live up to the hype? In a word, yes.
What I Liked:
- It covers my entire head
As anyone with dreads can tell you, it becomes increasingly difficult to find nighttime hair coverings as your hair grows. The Dreadsock covers my hair completely. And don’t worry if your dreads are thicker; although there wasn’t much room left lengthwise, there was plenty widthwise. Plus the material is made to stretch.
- It stays in place
I don’t think I’ve ever had a hair bonnet that consistently survived a night on my head. The Dreadsock, however, stayed put as promised.
- It’s comfortable
After the first couple of nights, I found myself throwing on my Dreadsock while watching television or lounging around the house. It’s made of lightweight material that allows air to get in and circulate. After a while I forgot I was even wearing it.
What I didn’t like:
- It’s pricey
Um, $20 for a hair bonnet? #WhereDeyDoDatAt? I’m not sure if I’d be willing to pay so much for a Dreadsock. But I do think it’s a good investment, especially if your dreads are longer. It’s a quality product and should hold up over time.
I’m very pleased overall. Great product, and I recommend it. 4/5 nappy fros.
