One of the most beneficial things you can do to maintain the health of your hair is to cover it at night. Silk or Satin is recommended. Here are 4 reasons why:
1) Healthier Hair
When you cover your hair with satin, the fabric acts as a barrier against moisture-absorbing fabrics like cotton. This prevent split ends caused by hair drying out. Your curls stay fresher longer, and maintain the moisture produced by the natural oils or added hydration. Result: Healthier Hair.
2) Prevents Breakage
Cotton and other fabrics typically used for sheets are moisture-absorbing and can cause friction when our curls rub against them. This leads to breakage. We want our curls to grow not break off. Satin prevents this from happening, along with a good hair care regimen.
3) Neater Hairstyles
No more frizzy hair! And even when you have your hair in braids, cornrows etc, satin is a smooth fabric that helps keep hair neat and in place. Get your young queen in the habit of covering her hair at night and it will extend the length of time she keeps her hair style.
4) Saves you money
Healthier Hair, Longer-lasting hairstyles = $$$ savings overall.
