Alright, do not laugh! I have been sleeping with my skirt slip over my fro for the past week lol! Yes!!! Sounds crazy right? Okay, so let me explain what's be my bonnet is not real satin it is actually only satin like. In fact, most scarves and bonnets that are sold in stores like Walmart or beauty supply store are polyester, nylon,and rayon blends :) I don't mind using these materials as long as they don't dry out my fro. My bonnet and scarf hasn't cause any dryness so that's why I have been using them :) However, as my hair grows out, it is also growing up! LOL Unfortunately, my bonnet is now raising up on my head and rubbing against my edges which is a no go for me.
I've been thinking about ordering a new bonnet, one made of silk or a better satin, but honestly, I don't feel like spending money on one just yet lol. I needed an alternative to protect my fro at night. That's where the idea of trying my skirt slip came in lol! My slip feels almost identical to my bonnet and scarf. The one I've been trying out is made of nylon but its not dry and draggy like a stocking lol. It's actually very smooth :) I have several slips and they are all different materials (poly blends, nylon, rayon etc.)
I have to admit I was nervous at first trying the slip out, but I'm soo glad I did! My hair has been soo much more moisturized :) So much so, that I have been going days with out having to add really anything to my fro. My styles have been holding up awesome as well and I have been getting about 4-5 days out of my styles without re- twisting. There has been no breakage, snagging, or extra frizzing either! I'm lovin the slip! So, for now, I will be using my slip along with my satin pillow case (which is on its last leg), to protect my fro at night until I decide whether or not I want to order a new bonnet :) I'm not in a rush though! Have a great day!
