Protecting the hair at night is important for preserving the hair's future growth and vitality. Satin scarves, bonnets and pillowcases allow women to care for their tresses while they sleep.
Textured hair types benefit most from wearing satin scarves at night. Nightly tossing and turning causes the hair to rub against cotton pillowcases and sheets. Cotton absorbs precious moisture from the hair strands, and the friction and dryness can lead to split ends and hair breakage.
