Would give zero if given the option! Do not Buy if you are looking to buy a Real Silk scarf!! I received this item today and knew right away it was a cheap satin imitation of silk! I asked for a second option, and was told it was satin! Still in doubt, and in hope it was real silk and that I would be wrong I decided to perform the silk test! When I burned a piece of the silk patch that was sent it smelled of chemicals and not of burnt hair!! Also, another test to for real silk is if it Does Snag on un-smooth feet heels, where as with satin it does not snag. It also failed the second test.
I knew the price and description would be too good to be true. The cap I received was not real silk. The first hint was simply how it felt in my hands. Another way to tell if a material is real silk is to burn it and observe the smell and how it burns. Coincidentally, this cap came with a little scrap piece so I burned that and sure enough it was just a synthetic material.
I was really excited about getting this product to use to cover my hair when I slept but very disappointed when I woke up and had a significant indentation on my forehead that took a couple of hours to fully disappear. I had to go to work with this mark on my head and felt ridiculous. Great concept for the product but just poor overall use. Had to return it. :(
This claims it’s 100% real silk. It comes with a sample fabric. Real silk smells like burnt hair when you burn it. This smelled like plastic. The cap feels more like satin, so it *might* contain some silk, but that’s not what it’s advertised as. Satin is supposed to work just as well (as long as it’s weaved with silk), so I figured I’d try it, just in case. I also have shoulder length hair. It’s no longer thick and curly thanks to illness and chemo and I’ve lost more than half of it. The cap barely fits my hair and leaves marks across my forehead in the morning. My hair actually looked worse after a week.
I wish I could give zero stars -- this product is not silk and should not be described as such. It's obvious upon opening the package that this cap is made of synthetic material. It feels nothing at all like genuine, natural silk. If for some reason you want a polyester scarf/cap, then go ahead and purchase this one. But don't be fooled into thinking that you'll be receiving a silk product that will protect your hair.
I'm very happy Amazon refunded my money for this product.
This cap is clearly not real silk. It came with a small swatch of excess fabric, to which I applied the burn test. Real silk will smell like burnt hair, and when removed from the fire, immediately stop burning. This fake polyester blend, when placed in the fire, immediately melted into black plastic goop, and continued to burn and bubble long after it was removed from the flame. I won’t be wearing this cap - polyester is EXTREMELY bad for your hair!
After almost a month of using this, I can honestly say it sucks. The elastic thingy has just stretched so much (it wasn't a tight fit to begin with,but I was hoping it will last longer), it barely stays on my head anymore. The moment I try to turn, it just falls off. I'll try my luck with a different brand. The color was true to the photos though and the little knots on the sides were kinda cute.
The part of the product that actually helps your hair to stop breakage is on the exterior of the cap. It is the part that shines like on silk pillow cases. This part is on the outside where your body actually has contact with it. But in this case it is on the outside where it gives little to no Benifit. Know if the product had a double layer with the beneficial shining part of the stitch. The the benefits could fully be revived. Only other critique is that the elastic band needs to be shorter or stronger. The product falls off during sleep on a typical shaped head size and shape. This lead me to just buy a silk pillow case.
