Why does curly or frizzy hair require a satin wrap?

Satin hair wraps often include the use of head wraps or head coverings. People with curly or frizzy hair often face the problem of dry, frizzy and tangled hair.

Some also wear protective hairstyles like braids, wraps, buns, cornrows, etc., and find it damaged when sleeping with them.

Therefore, although anyone with any hair type can use satin pillowcases or head coverings while they sleep, these types of hair wraps are often used by people with curly or curlier hair types because they are more susceptible to damage hair and other hair problems.

These satin hair rollers help keep frizz away from different types of hair problems and can also help keep protective hairstyles in place.

Benefits of Wrapping Braids in Satin

1. Helps reduce hair frizz

One of the main problems that curly hair types face is the fact that their curls dry out very easily. When hair is dry in addition to being curly, this causes a problem!

So what goes wrong and how does hair become frizzy? When we sleep and we tend to move our head involuntarily while we sleep, the hair strands start rubbing against each other resulting in a certain amount of friction.

When there is friction between hair strands, the protective outer layer of the hair can be damaged, causing it to curl.

Another way that tufts of hair often get frizzy is when we sleep on a cotton pillowcase. As our heads move over the pillow, the resulting friction causes the hair to frizz.

When the friction is less, it will make our hair smooth and shiny. Therefore, using satin hair wraps can help.

2. Helps enhance hair shine

There are two reasons why a satin wrap of your hair can help enhance the hair’s better shine.

First, it can help the scalp distribute the natural oil, and sebum, throughout the hair evenly, leaving it smooth and shiny.

Also, when wrapping the hair, it will reduce the dryness of the hair and make the hair soft, while retaining its natural shine.

3. Promotes dry hair treatment

When we sleep, our bodies repair and regenerate. So, even our hair gets time to rejuvenate.

The scalp is known to produce a natural hair oil called sebum, which helps moisturize and nourish the scalp and hair well.

During the day, these oils are depleted. When we sleep on a cotton pillowcase, the cotton fabric absorbs the natural oil from our hair and makes our hair dry.

Therefore, using a satin hair wrap can help retain the hair oil within the scalp and hair, making it spread over the hair strands more easily.

This will help keep the hair adequately nourished and moisturized for longer.

4. Reduces tangles on the hair

People with curly hair well, let’s be honest here – getting rid of tangles can be a nuisance!

Curly hair is often prone to dryness and frizz, which makes it easy to form tangles.

See, when we move our heads in our sleep, there can be greater chances of tangles forming.

So if you cover your head with a hood or a satin headpiece, you can continue to move comfortably while we sleep without any worries about our hair getting tangled.

5. Keeps damage out of protective hairstyles

Many people with curly or frizzy hair often wear protective hairstyles like buns, braids, hair twists, etc., so that they can preserve and protect their natural hair from severe external damage.

But when we sleep with a protective hairstyle, the movement of our heads while we sleep can ruin these hairstyles in no time. Therefore, using a satin headpiece will help protect these hairstyles.

Also, it will help maintain a person’s curl pattern for those with any protective hairstyle, and in the event that typical curly hair fails to lose its natural shape over time due to friction and tangles.

6. Reduces the need to wash hair frequently

For those with curly hair, you will often find the need to wash your hair more often because your hair is dry and you may use external sources of moisture causing buildup in the hair and scalp.

This makes the hair look greasy and weighed down.

So when you cover your head with a satin headpiece, the hair’s natural oils are retained on the hair and the need for you to use external sources of moisture too much is reduced.

This will help reduce the amount of product buildup that builds up on your scalp and hair, which means you can wash your hair less and use dry shampoo longer between washes.

How to make silk hair wrap for sleep

People with curly or frizzy hair often use a hair cap. The hood is similar to a hood, but is made of soft satin fabric.

It is very simple and easy to use, therefore, people often choose to wear a ready-made hair cover over the scarf.

So if you want to wear a scarf, all you have to do is follow these simple steps to tie the scarf to your head.

Step 1: Make sure your hair is untangled

There are two important steps to consider before tying the veil. First, your hair must be completely dry.

So, if you’ve just showered and your hair is still damp, don’t wear a headscarf until your hair is completely dry.

Next, make sure to detangle your hair very carefully, so that it is completely free of knots.

So you need to use a wide tooth comb (because it makes detangling very easy without causing too much hair damage) and start at the bottom, working your way up as you detangle your hair.

Finally, if you have longer hair that doesn’t quite fit in the scarf, gently tie it into a loose bun, braid, or ponytail.

Step 2: Fold the scarf

Once your hair is ready to tuck the scarf away, begin securing the scarf by bending it the right way.

Be sure to use a satin (or silk) scarf that is at least 28″ x 28″ in length and width. The standard size people buy is usually around 35 x 35 inches in length and width.

Lay the scarf open on a flat surface and fold it in half to form a triangle.

Step three: wrap your hair

Once the triangle is formed, lift the scarf off the flat surface and place the long side of the scarf on your forehead, while the triangle portion of the scarf covers your hair.

It is important that the scarf is long enough to cover all of your hair and at least reaches the base of your neck.

Make sure you tuck your entire hair properly.

Next, use the long ends of the scarf to tie a loose knot on the side of your head to tie the scarf and secure it to your head.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about hair wraps

1. Can we use silk instead of satin to wrap the hair?

Many people have this skepticism, especially since satin and silk materials look very close in texture and feel.
Well, silk material is as good as satin. It gives hair room to breathe and its soft texture can give you just as much comfort as using satin.
The only reason many people choose not to use silk is that it is made from animal protein fibres, as opposed to satin which is not a natural fibre. Also, silk is very expensive to buy compared to satin, for the same reason.

2. Are there other solutions if I don’t feel comfortable wrapping my hair?

Well, often satin/silk headpieces don’t cause much discomfort especially once you get used to sleeping with your hair wrapped.
But if you’re an exception and still find yourself uncomfortable, you can opt to sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase, so you can at least get some if not all the benefits of a satin hair wrap.
