9 Silk Bonnets That Prove Protecting Your Hair at Night Can Also Look Cute
A satin bonnet has been an essential part of nearly every black girl's beauty regimen since . . . well, forever. I remember getting my first head scarf from my mom, which was passed down from her mom. I still tie my hair up at night to this day — and have one in every colour and size, which I rotate depending on whether my hair is straight or curly. And while there are tons of bonnets out there, not all of them are created equal. Some people might find a silk-textured headband or bandana more convenient to secure the hair along their edges. Others might prefer to gather all their hair in a loose-fitted cap for comfort.
Whatever your style, we've got an option for you. Scroll ahead for the cutest options on the market that'll help you sleep pretty and wake up in the morning with flawless hair.
