    I used to sleep w/a satin scarf/bonnet. If I do any amount of tossing or turning-it would be off. I then started using my satin triangle. I love it - and I notice a difference as well if and when I don't wear it.

    I use a satin scarf and sometimes a satin bonnet. Depending on how I feel. My pillow is covered with a large piece of satin that I made into a pillowcase. I love that because if I am too lazy to wrap my hair I could just go to sleep and not worry about anything.

    I'll either have a Satin/Silk scarf or pillowcase or both. If I don't have on a scarf, I'll put my locs in a high loose ponytail. It helps with the lint issue but going naked or keeping my locs off of my shoulders is only way to completely eliminate it.

    ...

    Most people don't see lint until after a few years of locking.

    Satin bonnet for me. Don't want lint gremlins to rise up and overwhelm me some time down the road!!

    I sleep on a satin pillowcase but I'm looking into getting a satin bonnet even though scarves and bonnets never stay on my head.

    Satin bonnet. I can definitely see a difference if I don't wear it.

    when i remember, i use a silk scarf

    the important thing is not to sleep on cotton, as cotton absorbs moisture and sucks it out of your hair

    so dont use a regular bandana, defeats the purpose

    sometimes i forget though, but i just make sure i over-moisturize my hair the next morning

    if you are a neat freak about the roots and edges and such, u would want to wrap it up at niht

    I use a satin scarf and satin pillowcases. My locs are starting to stick out of the scarf and the pillowcases are a backup. Since I don't twist much the scarf keeps them a little neater too.

    I too use the LB Loc Soc from Denise Reed. I also sleep on a Satin Pillowcase for those nights I end up falling asleep before I "go to bed". That way, I'm protected either way.

    I sleep with a satin scarf, or else my scalp will feel dry in the morning.

    for the most part I use a satin cap, but if i can't find it i use a silk scark and if I can't find that I just sleep with nothing. My loctician told me that it is bad to just sleep on a cotton pillowcase, so I am going to try to do better.

    Loc Sock for me too. I like the way my locs are neat in the morning and the Loc Soc also seems to help curls last.

    LB Soc, with satin pillowcase as backup if I have a "lazy night."

    I used to use a satin bonnet but now I use a satin du rag to keep them in place at night

    Count me in with those who wear the LB Soc and sleep on nothing but Satin Pillow Cases. I notice a big difference when I wear the Soc. In fact, when I'm at home doing work or chillin I wear my Soc. One day I'd like to try sleeping on a Silk pillow case also.

    I use a hole-y shower cap that is then covered with a satin scarf. It keeps my hair moisturized during the night and very neat. I don't feel right just "laying down" because my hair can get fuzzy pretty easily. In the shower I also use a shower cap with small holes in it (to prevent steam inside), and so far it's really kept everything great in between loctician visits.
