In order for your Sisterlocks to look beautiful for years to come they need a little help, especially at night. So many fail to prepare their locks for bed, sounds hilarious right? As funny as it sounds your bedtime hair regimen will determine if your locks remain lint free from your sheets, blankets, night-clothes and pillow cases. Just as you wouldn’t go to sleep without brushing your teeth among other bedtime rituals protecting your locks should be high on your list of things to do. For some with thick locks as well as those going through menopause using a scarf can be too hot, many beauty supply stores sell hair wraps that allow for more ventilation. Let’s get that head ready for bed!!
- Finger comb your locks to the top of your head, for those with longer locks put them into a pineapple style.
- Use a silk or satin scarf, fold the scarf into a triangle, wrap the back of your head with the broad side of the scarf, tie the two ends together at the top. Silk scarves are hard to find, the last two I purchased from a resale store, you can also shop for silk at a fabric store and make your own, silk is a natural fabric which is a lot cooler than cotton and stays put, it doesn’t move around as much as satin and other materials, stay away from cotton scarves as they can absorb your natural oils and cause your hair to be dry.
Wrapping your hair at night keeps them lint free in addition to protecting your style. This is one thing I know from 15 years of personal experience to be true. Sweet dreams!

Great information. I would not have thought to finger comb them 1st. Thanks for the tip.
I’m glad it helped Tereska!
I never thought about pulling my hair up so that none is hanging out at the bottom. I will certainly try this.
Wearing my hair like this as I sleep also preserves my curl styles, my best to you on your lock journey!
