    Default Satin/Silk Sleep cap?

    I'm thinking of trying one of these if I can find an affordable one - just because despite sleeping on a satin pillowcase and braiding my hair at night, I'm still having a lot of little breaks around my neck and such and I'm wondering if wearing a cap and not having anything pulling on my hair might help - thing is, I have no idea where to find one! lol. So any pointers or sites that have them would be a huge help!

    Why won't you make a one by yourself? I made mine from an old satin pillowcase! I can give you instructions on the picture if you want. I believe they're sold in Amazon too.

    I've found them in places like Walmart and Walgreens. Check in the products targetted toward people of color especially. It seems like there are more satin bonnets and the like there, probably because curly hair and braided styles stay frizz-free much better if you sleep on satin.

    Walmart has sleep caps made by Stay-on Satin in their ethnic hair section. They're dirt cheap and work great. I have a bunch of them. Machine washable and really pretty durable. I've been wearing mine for almost a year now and they're all still usable. For less than $2 apiece, they're a good deal!

    ETA: I should say that the caps aren't great for protecting the little hairs at the nape of your neck. I've pretty much given up on that area anyway, because I don't think those hairs will grow that long and I just can't keep them from getting some damage. But as far as protecting the rest of my hair goes, the caps do work really well. I used to wake up to a head full of tangles and now it's much easier to comb my hair out in the morning.

    I got mine from wal-mart. It's very comfortable and works great. The best part is that the elastic part isn't super tight so I don't wake up with a headache.

    I use the Pretty Wrap as sleep scarf. I think they're great! But they're slow on restocking though, so the selection is limited...

    I have a pretty wrap (Thanks jeanniet ) I love it.

    Just to clarify, satin can be made out of silk...satin is the weave. Satin can also be made of polyester, but the silk version allows your skin to breath.

    Sally Beauty carries satin ones (not silk) that are cheaply priced.
