Not sleeping on a silk pillowcase or in a satin bonnet may be damaging to your natural hair.

With the new trend of black women embracing their natural hair, it can be daunting in knowing exactly how to care for your hair. We have so many products available on the market today geared towards caring for natural hair. However, what is critical is that our hair type loves moisture and thrives in moisture. Ever wondered why sometimes you wake up and your hair is frizzy and dry? A lot of the time it’s because of our pillows. The material used to produce our pillowcases is not necessarily good for our hair. The most popular material used is cotton which dries out the hair.

Nobody Likes Dry Frizzy Hair!

For the most part, we all at some point use a cotton pillowcase, in fact, it is the most popular fabric in the bedding industry, what we recommend at Herboo Botanicals is that you invest either in a satin material pillowcase or satin bonnet wear

a satin bonnet to cover your natural hair while you sleep. It makes no sense to spend time, & energy taking care of your natural hair just to have your pillow suck all that moisture right back out.

Key Takeaways

1. Invest in a satin pillowcase, if don’t like sleeping on that material like I do try and get a satin bonnet which is much easier to wear throughout the day and will protect your styled hair if you have an event.

2. Don’t be afraid to use a headband or “tie head”. In Jamaica we grew up seeing our mom and grandmother wearing “tie heads” to protect their hair however, at the time we had no idea why they did it.

Using A Great Oil To Seal In The Moisture

Another tip in taking care of your natural hair is using a great natural or organic oil. Currently, the best oils to use to keep your scalp and hair healthy include Coconut Oil, Jamaican Castor Oil and Jojoba oil. These oils penetrate your hair’s cuticle very easily and promote significant hair growth. Use these types of oils daily to enhance your natural hair’s beauty. If you would like our unique mixture you can get the Herboo Botanicals’ Protective Moisturizing Hair Oil. It is lightly scented to mask the pungent essence of Jamaican Castor Oil.
