Normally, we would think that a scarf is just a scarf, and that we don’t need to wear it all the time. But, when it comes to our hair, it can be the difference between healthy and unhealthy hair strands.
Having a quality scarf can prevent you from experiencing breakage from “rough” sleeping patterns, and it can also help you to maintain the moisture in your hair.
So, how exactly are you damaging your hair by sleeping you ask… Well, most of us sleep on cotton pillow cases, which contain harsh fibers that cause friction when we move our head back-and-forth, while sleeping. This movement causes pulling and tugging between our hair and the fibers of the pillow, significantly causing damage to our most sensitive area– our edges.
Cotton also has absorbing agents that suck all the moisture out of our hair overtime, leaving it dry and brittle.
To protect your hair while you sleep, it is best for you to wear a satin bonnet, scarf, or sleep on a satin pillow case.
Satin is the best protective agent for your hair while sleeping because it doesn’t pull on your edges due to its smooth surface, and the fibers within the satin don’t remove the moisture from your hair.
