How do you protect your hair at night?

When I first started out, covering my hair every night was uber important. Not just because it helped with moisture but also because if I didn’t I would wake up with my hair all over my head.

Now, as a dread, I will admit that I’ve become a bit lazy.

I used to faithfully wear a satin bonnet like this to bed:

As my hair grew I found that it didn’t fit as comfortably anymore. Also, I keep the vents in my room closed so it doesn’t get too cold, and I found that I was starting to sweat in my head.

Next best solution? A satin pillowcase. I have a red one similar to the one pictured above. This way my head can breathe and I’m still protecting my hair.

What’s your choice of bedtime hair protection?

    I just spritz my hair lightly, wear my satin cap, and that’s it. At some point I would love to brush my locs but I don’t feel that they are mature and ready enough for that! Hehe. Once I feel ready though I’d def. want to incorporate brushing into my bed time routine. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I use a satin pillowcase. I either forget to put on the satin cap or it comes off. The pillowcase makes it so much easier.
