  • Covering Hair At Night

     

    Hello ladies,

    I have been wondering about this for while so just thought I'll ask. For those with mature locs, do you still cover your hair at nighttime? I used to cover my hair but I stopped about a month ago. I found out my locs get more relaxed but on the other side it gets fuzzier quicker. I also wanted to know if it's our choice whether or not we cover it or is the hair suppose to be covered? Thanks for all your responses.

    I'm one year and I still cover mine. My sister has 8 year old locs that are down her back. When she was up here visiting I made a scarf for her so that she could cover her locs at night. I had to help her take the lint out of the ends of her locs because she never covered them and a special blanket she has puts lint in her locs.

    I fuss at her when ever I hear she hasn't covered her locs

    So this is why I cover mine. I don' t want lint.

    Nope. I haven't since probably month two. My locing experience is the definition of FREEDOM! I do nothing regularly. I do as I will. Now I haven't even reached the 1 year mark so I try not to hand down too much advice, but since you asked.... :P

    I have only been at this locing thing for a month or so, however I was using silk/satin scarves but they came off
    So now I tried a stocking cap..seems to work ok..not to frizzy
    and stayed on all night..Hope this helps..

    My locks are almost 4 and a half years old and I cover them everynight. I feel bad if I don't, I don't want lint or excess rubbing against the pillow case. So I used satin scarves over the years but now I use a stocking cap that I made myself with the legs of the stockings cut off and the rest tied together. I LOVE the stocking cap, fits my locks perfectely. I was inspired when I saw an old Erykah Badu video where she wakes up and she has one on, covering her faux locks I suppose.

    I cover my head everytime it hits the pillow. I use two scraves. One tied long ways to keep my middle back laying down and then one tied the normal way to cover my whole head. Nikki

    This was an area of new found freedom since becoming natural, I have never covered my hair unless it was in cornrows. I sleep on a satin pillow case. And have no visible lint. My hair likes to be free.

    I use doo-rags! Always have! My hair is getting too long I will try ChocolatChaud's idea with the pantyhose! I cut off small sections to make safe rubber bands for pony tails with pantyhose but never thought to use them at night! ^_^

    Thank you ladies! I knew I could depend on you all. Each of your responses have heped greatly. Thanks again. And I think I will start covering them again since that seems to be the consensus but I won't fret if i go without it either since I don't have the lint issue.

    Thank you for posting this thread my hubby was just asking me to post this same question. I know this might sound dumb but I'm gonna ask anyway does the hair ever get too long for the dreads?

    Thank you for posting this thread my hubby was just...

    you mean too long for the scarf,,,,yes so you make yourself another one or use a stocking (I think I may try that one once my locs get that long)

    anyway,, like I said my sister has 8 year old locs they are down her back and hit mid butt area,,,I made her a scarf by threading two large satin scarfs together. She loved it.
