Product Review: Lex Satin Sleep Cap

01:52 Naija girl next door 5 Comments


One of the first tips you'll get at the beginning of a hair journey is to always, always go to bed with a silk or satin scarf.
I've been using the Lex Satin Sleep cap for a couple of weeks now and this is my review.

Quick back story first.
        When I started my hair journey, I was a student in Edo state and I didn't know anyone else doing it, so I had to figure out by myself how to get what I needed.
 My first satin "bonnet" was a piece of hot pink bridal satin I had gotten from my tailor's shop. I lined the inside of my hairnet with it and hand stitched it in place. It wasn't cute, but it did the job. 

        Since then I have used a lot of packaged satin scarves and bonnets. You know those ones from supermarkets that are mostly black?
Here's one.

  This one is an improvement on a cotton scarf because it's not as abrasive but it's certainly not the best satin. It's not completely friction free. Satin scarves are not all created equal.
I really didn't want to have to go to the market in search of bridal satin so I just managed. 
        When @Lexmall on instagram said they were sending me their satin sleep cap, I hoped it would be what I had been looking for. 

      It was. This satin is the real deal. As soon as I received it I was moved to give them instant feedback: "The quality is 👌👌❤" I said.
 It is SO smooth to touch. It glides around my hair with zero friction so my hair can't even rub up against it. The best indicator is that when I take it off in the morning, my hair is as I left it - smooth as ever and moisturised. No dryness or roughness.
        It's so fun that it is reversible. Who else gets excited by reversible stuff? I have since I was a child. Like, you have something you can wear and then it turn inside-out and wear that too? Gawshhh. I had this top... Please tell me I'm not the only one.
    I love my sleep cap, it is the royal blue/starry night one.

  1. I actually need one of these. Although for some funny reason, my scarfs or hair nets fall out of my head at night. And if it's too tight, it gives me a really bad headache. I'll try to get this. Thanks Babe!

    1. Lol, it's always very confusing when I wake up and there's no scarf on my head. Like, who robbed me of my protection?!
      It has not happened to me at all with this one, at least not yet, even though it's not tight.

  2. I like the starry night print!
    My Elizabeth Cress bonnet is still very much intact but the ankara layer is a little too thick, so bonnet isn't as breathable.
    I'll try this one soon.

    1. Oh I remember that one. Eyaa, maybe you can use it when harmattan comes.

  3. "Satin scarves are not all created equal" is so true. I love that these are reversible.
