In order to maintain healthy and moisturised hair, you need to go to sleep wearing a satin bonnet or sleep on a satin pillowcase. There are many benefits of wearing a satin bonnet to sleep, it’s not just for maintaining your hairstyle, but it actually protects your hair from damage caused by sleeping patterns.
When you sleep on a cotton pillowcase with uncovered hair, you end up rubbing your hair against that pillowcase throughout the night. A cotton pillowcase is very absorbent, therefore it drains moisture from your hair, leaving your hair extremely dry. In addition, cotton pillowcases have a rough surface, so it tends to grab you hair, which can lead to broken and damaged hair strands.
If you already have weak and damaged hair sleeping without a satin bonnet or pillowcase will lead to further damage. Wearing a satin bonnet or sleeping on a satin pillowcase has the following benefits:

3. It prevents dry hair
Satin bonnets and pillowcases help to lock in moisture in your hair, which keeps you has moisturised, making it less prone to dryness.
