Sweet Dreams


Going to sleep with natural hair can be so unsexy sometimes. Those twist or braids aren’t cute but there are ways to make bedtime a little sexier. If you are trying to cover up your twist or braids I have a few recommendations for you.

The black satin scarf: you can tie this up to look anyway you like while protecting your hair. It doesn’t have to cost you much either you can try the fabric store or Amazon offers this one for just 7.99. Make sure ou get it large enough to fit your hair and that you can tuck sides that it doesn’t come unraveled while you are sleep.

Slap cap: This looks like knit cap but is satin lined which makes it the perfect cover up for around the house or to bed. The price point is 24.00 but she often has sales. They even offer offer small sizes for the little ones. Another plus to slap cap is it comes in a variety of colors.

If you have been looking for something that doesn’t have you going bed looking Celie these are two options to consider. How do you keep bedtime cute when going to be with natural hair.

Fall and Winter Natural Hair Necessities

Welcome to fall! Now is the time to make sure we have what is needed to get our natural hair through the cooler weather.

A good deep conditioner is always needed no matter the weather but two I’m going to are great for the fall and winter. TGIN Honey Miracle Mask  and Millie Organics Hydrating Condition are wonderful.  TGIN gives that protein protection with a ton of moisturizing properties. Millie is great for deep moisture and is protein free. The cooler air along with the heat in our homes can be super drying but these two provide deep penetrating treatments to help keep your hair from getting dry.

I will admit I’m a little slack with wrapping my hair up in the summer because I use a satin pillow case all year. However in the winter I make sure to have my satin bonnet on to protect my hair. As I previously stated the heating system in our homes are very drying so even if you are sleeping on a satin pillow case you natural hair can still be exposed to the dry heat in the home. I really love my slap cap but if you search I’m sure you will find plenty of other companies making beautiful bonnets to sleep in.

Last but not least try to protective style. I know most people think of protective styling in the summer with braided styles but the winter is also a great time to do those braided do’s also. If you don’t want to do braids try a wig or even head wraps and turbans are a great alternative. I have purchased a few head wraps that are satin lined but if you are using a traditional head wrap make sure to use some sort of stocking cap or satin scarf under neath your head wrap to protect your strands.
