Best Sleeping Cap for Dreadlocks – Buyer’s Guide
Introduction – Sleeping Caps
Although dreadlocks are strong and natural, they do require protection. While you sleep, your dreads are subject to damage caused by friction, and they can collect bits of lint from your bedding. Also, the cotton on your pillowcase can absorb moisture from your dreads, leaving them dry and brittle over time. A sleeping cap is an excellent way to protect your locs from all of these concerns.
