In today’s blog, I will dive into the fascinating world of sleep gear, drawing inspiration from the hair care practices of the past. Reminiscing about my grandmother’s beauty routines, particularly using toilet paper to protect her set hair, sparks an intriguing connection between the old-fashioned technique and modern curly hair care. Join me as we explore the importance of safeguarding your curls at night and the surprising parallels between traditional hair wrapping and contemporary sleeping caps for curly hair.

The Nostalgia of Hair Sets

My grandmother’s tales of weekly hair sets at the salon, where rollers and a hair dryer were the essential tools, evoke a sense of nostalgia. These meticulous routines aimed to maintain the perfect hairstyle, and not washing the hair in between appointments was a vital part of the process. The emphasis was on preserving the set, and this idea forms the foundation of our discussion on protecting curls during sleep.

Curls, Sleep, and Comfort

The key to maintaining those gorgeous curls lies in the choice of sleep gear. Whether it’s a wrap, a buff, or a bonnet, the focus is on minimizing movement and preserving the curls. Much like the toilet paper technique, curly sleeping caps work to protect the curls, ensuring they stay intact through the night.

The Sleep Bonnet Chronicles

Modern bonnets offer a plethora of styles and materials, catering to diverse preferences. Some swear by the classic silk bonnet and will only choose silk; others don’t care and love the variety of satin bonnets. Some prefer a curly hair bonnet with an adjustable strap to tighten and loosen the bonnet. Others don’t like an elastic feel and prefer no elastic at all. Short, curly hair will work better with a snug fit. Some will choose a buff style where it’s about a snug fit and not whether it’s silk or satin!

Ultimately, the emphasis lies in selecting the right size and style tailored to individual curls, budget, and personal flair. The choice of materials and fashions, too, boils down to a matter of personal preference.
