Protected and Pretty: 5 Hair Bonnets We’re Obsessing Over 

by Danielle Bennett

For us textured-hair gals, “beauty sleep” isn’t just a cutesy term to say we need to catch some Zzzz’s.

Sure, sleep is paramount, but we must also follow *real* night-time hair rituals. And at the top of the list of prescribed bedtime orders are satin (or silk) bonnets. 

A tightly woven fabric, typically made up of synthetic filaments like polyester or rayon, satin is quite forgiving. Its natural drape allows it to gently move with the hair.

Unlike cotton and wool hair coverings (which are sponge-like by nature and will devour just about everything from the hair; causing split ends, dryness and frizz), satin does the opposite.

Satin inherently repels; and that allows natural oils and moisture to live on the hair, where they belong.

Its smooth, malleable texture eliminates damaging friction and dehydration. Hairstyles remain well preserved.

A satin bonnet is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your hair. Ahead is a rundown on 5 of the best.
