    I snapped last night after three nights of wearing a high bun that fell out no matter if I used spin pins or a scrunchie. Now I've got a sleep cap/bonnet on its way to me.

    The boyfriend thinks my sleep cap is ridiculous, but he requests that i wear it every night, so that my hair won’t tickle him

    Sarah where did you get silk bonet?
    And how it is attached to head?
    I've got one in the past and it was to tight around my head. It gave me headaches.

    Also how it affect oilyness? Don't you need to wash your hair more often?

    I bought mine from Adorabellababy on etsy. You can adjust the tightness of the elastic to suit how you like it. (It ties with a ribbon in a bow). I don't notice any extra oiliness, I just wash my hair once a week.

    I tried wearing one but I turn too much and the darn thing won't stay put. If I tied it so that it doesn't move so much then I got a headache from being too tight. So I gave up on the sleep cap/bonnet and just went back to the braid for nighttime. My braid shreds and there is some damage but I'll just have to live with that I guess

    I used to do that until I realized my hair is touching the ground. I had a nightmare that some bug crawled up my hair onto the bed and was in bed with me. (Eewwwwe)!!! Didn't actually happen but not going to let it happen either!!!!! Now I can't let it down for fear that will actually happen

    With the talk of significant others and sleep capsÖ

    If I had a bedmate, I would braid my hair back at night, for their sake. As it stands though, I donít. Having my hair spread out across my pillow feels lavish somehow, and I try to enjoy it for now, because itís (hopefully) not a permanent thing.

    I have crazy sesitive scalp. I can't do any bun/high pony to sleep.
    I always wear braid. Recently I wanted straigth hair so I can waer it down so I went to sleep with loose hair. Bad idea. I didn't get any sleep. I just can't fall asleep like that.
    I may be lucky because my BF also have long hair so he try to remember not to lay on mine.
