This bonnet is thinner than I anticipated, but the satin lining is great. So far, I have not felt product saturate through the cap when I wear it at night to the point where it transfers to my pillow. I put oil and grease in my hair. The headband is soft, flexible, and doesn't squeeze my head. Cap is large enough to cover thick, shoulder/chest-length curly hair. My only complaint would be that I wish it was thicker.
3 month update: This cap bleeds. Stained my pillows and sleep shirt with product in my hair. My hair is black (color 1b) so no visible staining on my hair. Overall, wouldn't recommend unless you wouldn't mind the color bleed.
It's basically like a small silk pillowcase with strings to tie onto your head. It was too tight to put on and was not secure at all. It's also difficult to put all your hair into, even with a ponytail. I'm not a rough sleeper, but since it can only sit on your head from tying it.. I was never able to keep it on or it would be so tight I'd have to take it off anyway. I would not recommend anyone buy this, maybe only for a child or if you have a small head.
I bought this per recommendation of Manes by Mell. The quality of the material is nice, but I was surprised to find the band has zero stretch. Maybe my head is way too big but I cannot figures out how to get all my hair in there without messing up my curls in the process. It technically fits, but I selects wake up with an indent across my head every time i use it. I see mine is a medium, but I don’t think sizing up would solve my the problem if there is still no stretch.
It was delivered on time packaged well its a large bonnet which I needed But the stitching on the band was extremely irritating it cant be turned inside out because its only satin in the inside also it looked like it was used the outside looked as if it was over stretched to the point there where strings on the outside of the bonnet perfect for larger heads and long hair
Not really sure who might use this. No one with bangs as they will be smashed under the elastic band. I guess if you have hair with no bangs and wish to keep the style longer.. you might sleep in this. called for return and got the refund and they said donate the cap. did seem to have nice feel to the fabric though.
Unless you had a headful of braids you wanted to keep covered or dreads or a very long weave, this probably will not be for you. Yes it is very soft inside, however it is so dang LONG! Also it kept slipping off I guess do to the satin inside.
I don't have an abnormally large head and this is uncomfortable when sleeping. The band is much too tight and gives me a headache. It DOES help it stay on..no denying that but the uncomfortableness of the band is just not worth it for me. Also, my hair looks much better after putting it up in a pineapple or just sleeping with it down on a satin pillow than it looks when I take this off in the morning.
