Why are they used and what makes them so important?
Not everyone's hair is the same and some peoples require more care than others. During our daily routines our hair receives many different stresses from external elements which can result in fragile and dry hair and even hair loss. Most people would think that it is during the day that causes they most problems for their hair but it can also get damaged during the night. Pillowcases, bed sheets and night wear can affect the healthiness of your hair. This is where a hair bonnet comes in as it prevents any damage caused by sleeping on the hair as well as pillowcases or if your hair is tangled.
Hair bonnets work by helping to retain the hairs natural moisture throughout the night. Hair that is particularly at risk are those that are very curly or kinky and this is especially true of those people from African or African American descent. Our scalp will produce a natural oil which is named sebum and for those people with straight hair the sebum will travel along the hair easily. The problem with curly or kinky hair is that the sebum finds it more difficult to travel the length of the hair. Because the sebum cannot find its way down through the twists and coils of this kind of hair also means that moisture does not reach all of the parts and moisture retention is vital to having strong and healthy hair. Certain fabrics will actually escalate the problem and make the hair drier even faster. Some of these fabrics include cotton pillowcases and sofas and this is where a bonnet works its magic by protecting the hair against many potential problem materials.
Some Of The Reasons For Wearing A Bonnet
- There are areas on your head where the hair is thinner from getting caught up in bedding and clothes causing it to be ripped from the scalp
- When you try to protect your hair by putting into buns, braids or use scrunchies but you find it uncomfortable
- The recommended protective sleep style, the pineapple ponytail is uncomfortable
- There is any hairstyle that you would like to maintain through the night
- Having long hair that tangles easily during sleep which in turn causes damage
- You prefer to sleep on cotton sheets and pillowcases rather than satin or silk
- During the night your hair will become frizzy
- Your hair is naturally kinky, curly or coiled and gets very tangled through the night
Best Types To Use
Satin is the best material to protect your hair due to its construction of tightly woven fibers. These help to keep the moisture in the bonnet and therefore on your hair through the night. They remain on your head by way of elastic or ties and come in a variety of styles and colors.
Once again one of the main materials due to them keeping the moisture on your hair and stopping any potential friction.
The important silk part needs to rest next to the hair so they can be all silk or have a silk lining and are fixed on
the head with elastic or ties.
An additional tool which is beneficial to delicate hair are bonnet hair dryers. These are bonnets with a domed cap and a tube to which you attach a hair dryer. You air will then go through the tube into the dome containing your hair which will dry it with your hair being exposed directly to hot air of the dryer.
This style of bonnet is vital to maintain healthy hair when it is delicate. Of course, there are still the traditional style although some people prefer to put normal hats on their babies. However bonnets do work better in keeping the head warm than a hat. Hats tend to slip of easily and leave gaps where cold air can get to the head whereas a bonnet has a tighter fitting and therefore does not slip or having any gaps thus keeping a babies head warmer in colder climates.
