Wearing a satin bonnet cap at night or in the winter to protect your curls' hair from the friction of your pillowcase is an incredible advantage that you have probably heard about or experienced yourself.  

Have you ever wondered how often to wash and protect a satin bonnet cap for long-term use? How frequently you wear your silk bonnets and how much oil or hair product you use are the main determining factors. Daily use of satin or silk should be used to protect your hair. You should give your bonnet a thorough wash every two weeks if you wear it every night.

An efficient and speedy alternative for machine cleaning is to handwash your bonnet. To help maintain the YANIBEST satin-lined hat and brightness of our design, use a cold wash if you must use the washing machine.

We advise using sensitive-friendly detergents to help avoid rashes or breakouts on your forehead that might occur from washing your bonnet with strongly scented suds.

How to wash satin bonnet by hand

  1. Pour half of the cold water into a medium-sized sink or basin. We used baby detergent, so add a small amount of mild cleaning solution.
  2. Turn your bonnet inside out, then soak it for 5 to 10 minutes in foamy water.
  3. To aid in removing accumulated debris and hair oil, squeeze the bonnet repeatedly in the sudsy water.
  4. After cleaning, remove the sudsy water from the bonnet and replace it with fresh, cold water.
  5. Give the bonnet a minute or so to soak, and then carefully squeeze out any remaining water.
  6. Let it air dry, lay the bonnet flat, or hang it up.


How to wash satin bonnet in a washing machine

  1. First, turn the bonnet upside down.
  2. Add a little amount of gentle cleaning detergent to the washing and insert the bonnet and scarf.
  3. Wash only in cold water using a moderate or gentle detergent and a delicate or gentle cycle.
  4. Use only air drying. In a spotless, dry area, lay the bonnet flat or hang it.


NOTE: To prevent losing the string through the perimeter of the bonnet, knot the ends of the string together at the end.

Pull the adjuster cautiously and slowly while tightening or releasing the adjustable string.


Additional Tips

When purchasing a satin hair bonnet online, ensure it has all the following features:

  1. Choose a satin bonnet cap that is the right size for your head to ensure a comfortable fit.
  2. Look for a bonnet or scarf with a secure elastic band to keep it in place while you sleep.
  3. Consider purchasing multiple bonnet hats to rotate and replace them regularly to maintain their quality and effectiveness.
  4. Avoid wearing your bonnet or scarf too tightly to prevent discomfort and potential hair damage.
  5. When washing your bonnet or scarf, follow the care instructions provided to ensure its longevity.
  6. If you notice any signs of excessive product buildup, oil discoloration, or overstretched elastic, it's time to replace your bonnet or scarf.

To get all these benefits in one package, you need to visit a trusted and reliable online bonnet seller.

Apply conditioner or shampoo on a regular basis

Use conditioner before putting on your satin bonnet. It seals in moisture and prevents tangles to keep your bonnet nice and smooth.

Try a mild shampoo instead of soap. Shampoos with aloe vera and chamomile are soft on satin and will keep your bonnet clean without damaging it.

Dispose of your bonnet when it's no longer useful. Your curls' health is very important.
