My hair was dry, extremely frizzy, and had zero curl definition—nothing like the front of my head. IT LOOKED AWFUL!
At first, I tried to conceal the damage by styling my hair in a high puff. But that meant I couldn’t wear my hair in my favorite style or how the producers wanted---my beloved fro!
And that’s when I had the aha-moment.
When you sleep at night, the back of your head rests on a rough cotton pillowcase. This activity (sleeping!) can suck all the moisture from your curls and it can get very ugly.
So, I found the answer… a bonnet!
In the beginning, I wore whichever basic bonnet I could find on Amazon that would fit around my afro. As you could imagine… I struggled night after night.
It was hard to get sleep with that cheap, uncomfortable thing on my head!
So, I started thinking…
What can I do to improve this situation (and get a good night's sleep)?
I wanted a bonnet that didn’t rub my edges off, that wasn’t tight and uncomfortable, and something that would protect my naturally curly hair.
The SwirlyCurlyNighttime Bonnet.
