Benefits of sleeping in silk. Plus, a list of local brands that sell silk scarves, bonnets and pillowcases.

A nighttime routine involves moisturising, detangling, wearing an overnight protective style and covering your hair before you sleep. Aside from using the right products to moisturise, the type of material you use to cover your hair can be what’s standing in between you and your hair getting the moisture it deserves. To get the most out of your overnight protection, try switching to silk, because unlike a swirl kous or legusha, silk has a lot of healthy benefits for your hair.

Benefits of sleeping in silk

  • Retain moisture – perfect for reviving dry hair
  • Wake up to better looking hair
  • You will experience less breakage
  • A silk satin scarf keeps your protective hairstyle fresh.
  • When you take steps to retain moisture overnight, you start seeing the difference. You worry less about dry hair.

True curls

😍😍😍 #Repost @chubby_styling (@get_repost) ・・・ *PRODUCT REVIEW* So it’s been almost 3 weeks using this range from @truecurls_hair and guys it’s been amazing. So you know how Bentonite clay is the thing in these #naturalhaircare streets, True curls has a Banana & Honey hair clay that has bentonite in it, it was the very first time I used any type of clay on my hair and I was worried if my hair would like it, 3 weeks later and my hair is the happiest. Honestly though the best thing about the 4 goodies I got ( besides the amazing silk hair cap) is the daily spritz😃.. so a few weeks ago when I was at the Indalo Nubian Naturals I learned that the spritz we mix ourselves needs to be changed daily because of …. ( deep reasons I can’t remember or pronounce 😂) so finding a premixed spritz with all the essential oils my hair needs daily is an absolute dream. I must say my hair was not as over the moon with the soufflé though, it did not do any harm but it was almost like my hair soaked it up in seconds so it was almost invisible. Now lets talk about the silk hair cap…Bagolo I never really understood why we need to sleep with silk headgear when we have #naturalhair I just never understood what exactly friction could possible do to my hair. I’m not obsessed with the growth of my hair, I’m more obsessed with it’s health and in the 3 weeks that i’ve been using all these goodies from True Curls, my hair has literally stopped breaking and I know that silk hair cap has contributed to that. Ya’ll know i’m not typing this to score brownie points akere. Honestly my hair is the softest most healthiest i’ve seen it. I still use a different conditioner, but honestly the difference is visible. Also I must say that little pamplet they have to teach you how to take care of your hair is so helpful, i’m still learning how to really take care of my #afro so I soak in new information like a sponge. ••• Ya’ll know I don’t share things with ya’ll that I don’t believe in or even just cause they are sponsored, this review is my honest opinion!😘
