A Silk Bonnet for Curly Hair: Is It Worth the Hype?
A Silk Bonnet for Curly Hair: Is It Worth the Hype?


Listen to an audio transcription of this post

Caring for curls, especially thick curls with length, can be quite the task (although it's so worth it for those picture-perfect ringlets).

A major step in caring for your locks is to protect them overnight while you're sleeping.

You could wear bonnets made from cotton or synthetic fabric, or even a satin bonnet. But, none of them will have the same benefits as a silk bonnet for curly hair.

Let's get into why the only hair bonnet for your curls should be a silk bonnet, and why so many people love our Blissy Bonnet.

5 Reasons Why Our Silk Hair Bonnet Works Wonders for Natural Hair

Whether you have luscious long hair or short bouncy curls, our mulberry silk bonnet is a must-have. The Blissy Bonnet isn't just a product—it's an investment in hair health and an integral part of a luxe hair care routine.

Hair Care Tip: The best hair bonnets are made from silk!

1) It's crafted from high-quality material

The Blissy Bonnet is 100% mulberry silk fabric of the highest quality (grade 6A). Plus our bonnets (and all our other silk products) are OEKO-TEX Certified. That means they are non-toxic, safe, and eco-friendly.

Mulberry silk is a natural fiber with many beauty and wellness benefits that'll help transform your curls and simplify your hair care routine. We've got to give our pure silk turban credit for helping thousands of curly-haired girls!

Here are some of the benefits of wearing our mulberry silk bonnet for curly hair:

  • Silk creates nearly half as much friction as cotton. Your hair will be free from frizz and tangles!
  • Wearing a silk bonnet will help your hair retain moisture, leading to shinier, glossier hair
  • Silk helps prevent breakage and split ends, especially when worn as a sleep cap

Hair Care Tip: Make sure you're wearing a genuine silk hair wrap or bonnet. Satin bonnets do not have the same hair benefits as silk.

2) It'll protect hair and preserve style

Our silk bonnet for curly hair will:

  • Help prevent bedhead
  • Fight frizz
  • Infuse hair with moisture
  • Give hair a glossy shine
  • Maintain your hairstyle

The Blissy Bonnet keeps your hairstyle smooth and is fantastic for maintaining a protective style, like braids and locs. That's because silk is nearly friction-free and won't absorb hair products or your hair's natural oils.

So, say goodbye to dry, frizzy curls and wasting expensive styling products!

Hair Care Tip: Wear your silk bonnet while sleeping to make every day a good hair day.

But don't just take our word for it. Hundreds of our hair bonnet wearers swear by its protective benefits, including Mary H.:

"This bonnet is perfect for my hair. I have long hair, and it is the only thing that controls it. The bonnet stays on my head all night long. I hate knots in the back of my hair, and this bonnet controls all those knots. I keep the box next to my bed. I really LOVE it."

...and Linda S.:

"The bonnet is a game changer for morning bed hair. Before using it, my very wavy/curly hair would be all over the place, requiring some major adjustments and water to tame. Now, I remove the bonnet, fluff up my hair, and it looks great."

3) It's cooling

Our silk bonnet for curly hair is actually cooling. Silk is moisture-wicking and naturally helps regulate temperature, so your head won't overheat at night.

You can also say goodbye to sweaty tangles and mussed morning hair!

Sleep comfortably, enjoy some much-deserved beauty sleep, and wake up with gorgeous curls, just like Maryann J.:

"This silk bonnet has done wonders for my dry hair. It is now silky and shiny every day. I am going to purchase more to give as gifts. The silk does not make your head hot."

4) It's versatile

The luxe Blissy Bonnet is suitable for all hair types. But it is especially beneficial for those with curly hair, thick hair, natural hair, or hair extensions. 

As for styling, it can be worn to bed but also whenever you do your skincare and makeup routine. The bonnet will keep your hair out of your eyes without ruining your curls.

Kathy M. has donned our bonnet and seen improvements while protecting their style:

"Fabulous! My style stays all week, keeps my hair cleaner, and cute for running around to maintain your hairstyle. I adore the bonnet."

5) It has a superior fit

Our mulberry silk bonnet has a very comfy, adjustable fit. It's not tight, but it won't slip off your head either.

Traditional bonnets tend to slide down at night while you toss and turn, but ours is designed to stay in place. The Blissy Bonnet features an elastic band at the nape of the neck and an elegant twist at the crown.

Scott L. is one of many who love our silk bonnet for curly hair:

"It stays on all night and is comfortable! I have curly hair which tangles easily. I’ve tried silk scarves and other bonnets that either don’t stay on all night, or are just uncomfortable. I’m SO HAPPY I bought this!"

4 More Reasons to Love the Blissy Bonnet

If you're still on the fence about wearing our silk hair bonnet, here are more fab features you'll love.

1) It's available in luxurious designs

Our ultra-soft, chic hair bonnet comes in 9 beautiful, silky colors. We just dropped 4 new ones including Royal Purple, Burgundy, Plum, and Blue.

We also offer our sleep masks and pillowcases in the same colors so that you can easily coordinate matching luxury sets.

Tip: Love leopard print? Then you'll love our wild new collection, which includes our silk bonnet for curly hair!

2) It's fun and fancy

The Blissy Bonnet is an elegant silk bonnet for curly hair. It'll make you feel stylish and fancy every night at bedtime.

So, pamper yourself while taking great care of your hair by wearing our protective silk bonnet.

Tip: Blissy Bonnets are luxurious and last for years with the proper care.

3) It can even help improve your skin

For each night that you sleep without a hair bonnet, your hair's natural oils and hairstyling products will rub onto your pillow.

If you're not sleeping on a silk pillowcase, these deposits will ultimately end up back on your face. This can lead to acne, clogged pores, and other unwanted skin issues.

Worse yet, your hair will become dry and frizzy, and you won't worry about wasting money on hair products that weren't intended for your pillow!

Wearing a hair bonnet for curly hair solves these problems—your hair will stay hydrated and protected while keeping your skin fresh and radiant.

Tip: Silk has many benefits for hair, but did you know it's also vital for happy, healthy skin?

4) A match made in hair heaven

To enjoy even more curly hair and skin benefits, pair your silk bonnet with a Blissy Silk Pillowcase! Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, non-irritating, hydrating, and even anti-aging (you'll see fewer new fine lines and wrinkles when you sleep on silk), making it a revered material for beauty and wellness.
