Shop The Look
Years of damage from hair treatments, dryness and breakage culminated into the perfect storm. It would be an understatement if I told you that I just wasn’t my hair. I kept it a secret from those around me, walked into a salon and asked the stylist to put the clipper to my hair. I even shared a Snap about it. But that was last year.
Post hair-chop, I did a lot of research to make sure I was well informed on how to care for my new short hair. Just because I’m rocking a low cut does not mean I no longer have to put in an effort to care for my hair.
My twin sister was concerned that my new hairstyle would adversely affect the kind of hairdos I could wear especially since I get bored of my hairstyle quickly. All I can say is, thank God for protective hair styles like wigs. Yup, I still can rock any hairstyle I want ;)
As someone who has transitioned from treated, long relaxed hair to natural, short kinky hair, I find that having a consistent nighttime routine of moisturizing and protecting my hair significantly reduces dry out and breakage. Satin wraps have been a core part of my nighttime routine but sometimes I wake up to realize that the wrap slipped off while I was sleeping.
Enter Satin-Lined Cap aka Slap by Grace Eleyae. Slap solves this problem and takes it up a notch because Slap can also be worn as a fashionable cap during the day. To show you how versatile it is, I styled the Slap in today’s look. You can wear them to bed as a protective barrier between your hair and harsh materials, or you can wear them out and about as a cute beanie that acts as a protective barrier between your hair and harsh outside materials.
Trade the old-school hair bonnet and pull out the Slap during the day or at night. Grace Eleyae has graciously offered my readers 10% off their first Slap through this link.
Say goodbye to unnecessary breakage and frizz. Keep your hair moisturized and silky smooth with the Satin-Lined Cap by Grace Eleyae. Now, I wear Slap before bed to ensure that my hair stays fresh and healthy everyday because short hair needs love too!
