If you’re a regular YouTube viewer, you’ll notice than whenever someone does a night time routine tutorial or any style tutorial in general, they’ll always cover their hair with either a satin scarf or bonnet before going to bed.
I’ve always wondered if it was necessary and after this past week, I realized it is!
I don’t always like to go to bed with a scarf or bonnet on my head because it makes me feel so thrown away. I know that sounds crazy, but I like to go to sleep “pretty.” I even put on perfume before bed! So wearing a bonnet kind of throws me off at times.
After I big chopped, I didn’t see the need to wear one. I mean my hair wasn’t even the length of my pinky finger, so I figured it wouldn’t make much of a difference. I would wake up and my hair would be dry and matted…almost stuck to my head! At the time, I thought it was a part of the process.
But somehow or another, I started wearing the bonnet and the texture of my hair after sleeping changed automatically. It was softer and less dry and easier to “refresh.”
I tried the no bonnet thing again this past week for about two days and when I tried to twist my hair up last night, I was so upset at how tangled and dry it was. I had a lot of shedding and knots but I did manage to get it all twisted.
This morning, it was back to normal. Therefore, I have concluded that it’s essential for anyone with natural hair to wear a bonnet/scarf at night to retain softness and moisture.
