For many decades, net caps or shower caps has been what women put on whenever they want to bath or wants to go to bed most especially at night. Nobody could ever thought shower caps or net caps will now become something of fashion today and people can be comfortable wear it around just like hair wigs that was known before.

Satin hair bonnets are a staple for protection of hair at night—especially if you’re trying to preserve your natural hairstyle. They are natural hair keeper –it absorbs essential oils and it’s used instead of net caps or shower caps.

Like a good silk pillowcase, or a trusty no-crease tie, the satin lining helps reduce friction and damage while you’re tossing and turning in your sleep.

“I wonder how their hair will not be smelling cos air won’t penetrate like hair net”

“People abused it. That’s what have been using a long time ago because I keep natural hair”

“it is better off than hairnet. It is mostly recommended for people keeping natural hair so as to seal in moisture and any other oil used on the hair. It also prevents hair breakage”

“Satin bonnet are used by natural hair keeper cos it absorbs essential oils and it’s used instead of net cap because net caps cut natural hair.
