Often times, I forget to don my satin scarf before going to bed. I’ve abandoned my satin bonnet because I wake up with headaches most mornings or it slips off my head, I only remember it when I have protective styles that involve ‘big hair’. So far, I haven’t found anywhere to buy satin pillow slips for regular-sized pillows and I keep postponing going to the market to have one sewn for me.
The next best thing is this satin pillow cover which is the easiest thing to make. Sleeping with a satin scarf/bonnet/pillow slip helps to protect your hair especially your edges from constant friction with cotton or other materials which can lead to frizz and breakage.
What I Used
- Satin scarf
- Pillow with pillow case
- Drape your satin scarf over the pillow.
- Turn over and tie the two upper and lower ends into knots.

This might be cheaper than buying a satin pillowcase, some cost $8-20 dollars depending on the store. Good idea!
Nice. I don’t even bother with protecting my hair with a scarf or bonnet but when I do, I throw on a very big satin skirt on my pillow before sleeping.
LOL! I thought you were going to sew. This is much easier though! Thanks for sharing.

Why does everyone think that? Lol. Would you be attending NITC this Saturday?
Lol. I do this. It’s actually permanently on my pillow till I want to do laundry. I just tighten the knots sometimes. I like your blog!
Thank you Ella!

Haha, you’re welcome 🙂
Smart idea! I usually just drape the scarf over the pillow, but it makes much more sense to actually tie it underneath!
It does! That way you’re sure it would stay on through the night. Thanks for reading
Loooool…..I do this like a lot…whenever am wearing big hair like crochet braids or curly weaves! Epic trick.
