It’s always important to wrap your hair at night. You should do so not only to protect your hair but help those natural hairstyles last longer. Don’t be fooled by white women trying to profit off of black culture by creating a $98 silk nightcap. Founder Sarah Marantz Lindenberg caught a lot of flack for trying to start a company like this. If you are going to buy a silk bonnet, try a cute, Ankara print bonnet. Here are some of the companies you should be supporting and putting your money toward.
