The 8 Best Silk Hair Wraps for Healthy, Shiny Hair

Wrapping my hair at night is something that’s been instilled in me since I was a little kid. When my hair was freshly styled for school on Monday, my mum would pop on a headscarf or turban (or if one couldn’t be found, a pair of tights), so over the past 29 years, I have tried my fair share of silk hair wraps.

The industry has come a long way, and now there is a plethora of chic and effective silk hair wraps to keep your hair healthy. If you’re not aware of the benefits of wearing a silky hair wrap, here’s the lowdown: Silk reduces friction and therefore prevents excess damage and fragility. The texture also helps prevent frizz. Plus, cotton is known to draw moisture out of the hair and scalp, whereas silk is less likely to do this. If you are looking for a vegan alternative, satin hair wraps are just as protective and some say even better for your hair than silk. This is because silk is still a natural fibre, like cotton, and therefore can still pull some moisture from your strands, whereas satin can be woven with purely man-made fibres.
