Sleeping with a silk nightcap reduces the heat loss from your head, keeps your scalp warm, and allows the blood vessels in your head to dilate due to the hood's covering.

4. Hair is clean and not easy to get dirty

Home cooking and cleaning time makes it easy to get hair dirty, especially during the Christmas and New Year Holidays; wearing a silk hair cap will be much better and will not get dirty anymore.

One of our customers said: I usually wash my hair once every two days; if wearing a silk hair cap, I will take three to five days to clean once. It is okay, and it will not be itchy.

5. Come From Natural

Silk is an animal protein fiber that can be produced by many different types of insects, but we ensure that all silk comes from natural. Natural silk contains protein fibers and amino acids; the human body is very close, just like the second skin. Hence, the friction of the human body is minimal irritation. The skin has a particular protective effect. Silk bonnets commonly used to sleep can reduce wrinkles, lock skin moisture, and make the hair soft and beautiful; it is the dermatologist's most respected bedding material.
