Why You Should Use Hair Wraps for Sleeping

Women with hair loss aren't the only ones who can benefit from wearing a sleep cap or scarf at night. Here are 6 reasons why you should consider covering your hair while you sleep.



Hairs can easily tangle when you toss and turn at night. Brush your hair before bed to remove knots and gently twist your hair up on top of your head and wrap it with a silk scarf to prevent new tangles from forming. Covering your hair in this way can also help you avoid breakage and prevent split ends.


Breakouts & Blemishes

Keeping hair covered and off of your face at night will help prevent the oils from your hair getting into the pores on your face and potentially clogging them. This helps to prevent blemishes from forming on your face. Covering your hair also prevents those same oils from transferring onto your pillow, which means you don't have to wash your pillow cases as often, lightening your laundry load!


Curl Preservation & Frizz Prevention

Natural curls can frizz overnight due to tossing and turning, which can leave you waking up to a tangled mess. Covering your hair can can help secure your curls in place and keep the spirals intact. This will help to make your morning hair routine a breeze!


Style Retention

When you spend money on getting your hair professionally styled, you want to be sure to get the most bang for your buck. Help your blowout last longer by covering your hair when you sleep. You can even apply a dry shampoo to your hair before bed, cover your hair, and wake up to a refreshed style in the morning!


Hair Treatments

Overnight hair treatments can help repair and protect your hair from damage. Covering your hair when you apply an overnight treatment can help ensure that the treatment completely saturates your hair. It also helps to keep messy oils and creams from transferring to your pillow, sheets, and face.


New Hair Growth & Minimizing Hair Loss

If your hair is growing back in after chemo or harsh chemical treatments, covering your hair with a sleep cap will help keep your delicate manes in the best condition. A sleep cap prevents friction against your pillow and protects emerging hair as you slumber. Further, if you are shedding hair excessively, a sleep cap will help protect against hair loss caused by abrasion.


We offer a wide variety of comfortable sleep caps and turbans that are great for containing hair overnight. Try selecting one with a bit more room at the top, such as our Cardani Cozy Cap Slouch Cap in Bamboo or our Starlet Sleep Cap, to ensure that your hair will fit under the cap. Wrapping your hair in one of our beautiful silk hair scarves is also a wonderful option.
