I have been growing my hair out for three years now and in the past six months I started to struggle a lot with breakage at the end of my hair and split ends. Braiding my hair at night seemed to cause the ends that were free of the hair tie to become dry and straw-like overnight. I tried this silk cap hoping that it would keep my hair from breaking as much when worn overnight. I've used it for about a week now and I am very pleased with the results. My end breakage is down by around 90% and the ends of my hair look much less dry. It is very comfortable to wear and the elastic doesn't dig into my scalp or forehead (I wear a 7 1/4 hat size and put the cap behind my ears and wear the top up near my hairline instead of on my forehead).
I did turn the cap inside out - the silk is woven in a satin weave, meaning that one side is shinier and more slippery than the other, and I wanted that side to be the one contacting my hair. It works fine, just doesn't look as good on. (Not that one can look awesome wearing a sleep cap. I told my husband if he hates it I won't wear it any more, but he seems to be amused by the entire thing.) It's quite comfortable to sleep in, and I'm a bit of a picky sleeper.
Overall, very much a success, especially for the price.
I was surprised at how quickly my item arrived. Excellent fabric, not the usual thin, see through cheap fabric you usually find on the market. the color was vibrant. Basically, the item looks as described. I ordered the large size because tight caps and hats give me headaches and was not disappointed. I will be getting more in different colors.
I have a very big head and one-size-fits-all doesn't usually work for me. I also toss and turn all night so I never expected any cap to stay on. This cap fit and stayed on all night! I just received it and only wore it once but I'm really pleased so far! I don't know if those three flaps of material that hang down are ties or just decorative but I didn't need to use them anyway. Did I say I'm really, really pleased?
PROS: - Can be tightened to stay on throughout the night - Soft fabric
CONS: - The elastic band is completely exposed on the inside of the cap which means that it's in direct contact with your hair. If anyone is familiar with elastic bands, they are fairly rough in texture (at least compared to something like satin), so given that this rough surface will be not only tightened against your hair, but will likely be subject to friction (from moving around at night), I highly suspect that this will cause breakage or damage to the hair that's in direct contact with this elastic band. - When tightened in order to keep on throughout the night, the point that it's tightened is focused in one spot on your head and can be uncomfortable or even painful during sleep (the area that controls the tightness should have a more even distribution of the tension, but instead it's focused on the knotted area that you tighten against your head) - Not super attractive (looks a bit too "raggy" when tied in the back and looks weird with the 3 ties when you try to tie it on top of your head)
Truly 100% silk. I've raised silk moths before so I know what real silk is. The company even includes a "test square" of the material to burn, etc... The bonnet is a funny shape, but roomy for most styles. A perfect accompaniment to my silk pillowcase. Recommended for curly girls and anyone needing a good, pure silk bonnet.
I’ve just started to wear a silk nightcap. I was amazed at the lack of tangles after only one night. I was concerned that the smooth front of this cap might flatten my hairline, but if I put my hair up right, I can pull it down that smooth edge down over my eyes, and I have a lot of hair. Sadly, I can’t wear it while I have a migraine, but that’s just my head. The rest of the time, my hair is happy to sleep in the cap!
This is wonderful! I have very thin and easily breakable, this is so helpful for that. I saw that people had trouble with it being to small so I bought the XL, it is quite large and I had to adjust it, but overall it is just what I was expecting and it does wonders for my hair. It does slip around on my hairline, I move it to just above my eyebrows and it stays on all night. Customer service was very kind amd helpful as well <3
I bought this because I have curly hair and needed a smooth bonnet to sleep in to keep my hair from getting frizzy. I couldn't find a silk pillowcase I wanted so I decided to try this instead. It's slightly uncomfortable around the ears and will not hold its place at all while I sleep. Everytime I woke up it was completely off my head (and I don't move much in my sleep) which completely defeated the purpose of wearing this. I still get use out of it by wearing it while I do my make up, though. I'll keep looking for a pillowcase.
This is so small, it was useless to put over my hair. First I tried taking out part of the elastic, but there just wasn't enough fabric. I ended up using it to cover the headrest in my car, so it wasn't a total loss.
