What is a silk cap you ask? It’s what keeps my hair looking silky and smooth when I slept at night.
You’re probably sick of me saying that my hair type is dryer than most but it is! I spend most of my time trying to figure out how to keep my hair moisturized and this silk cap helps a ton.
Cotton pillows dry out your hair and face so sleeping with a silk cap helps protect your hair from drying out. (If you suffer from dry skin, getting a silk pillow is a really good idea!)
You can get silk caps at most beauty supply stores. They’re so cheap and last a long time! I can’t even remember when I bought mine but I’ve had it for a loooong time. If you find your hair falling out of the cap when you wake up, your band is loose and it’s time to replace your cap.
You can use your silk cap with any hair type, but especially when you have a weave or sleeping with any extension. I didn’t know until recently that I should be sleeping with a cap for my braids and twists but now I see the light!
