    I wear my satin scarfs like bandanas and they don't break off my sides...
    -HTH
    :look:
     
  3. Not sure what the bandana is made of (cotton I think). I think silk or satin scarf is better. I know bandanas aren't as soft as my pillow case and pillowcases can break off the hair line/hair.

    I read somewhere that bandanas are one of the worst things to tie your head with because they are made of cotton. The cotton absorbs the oils from your hair and makes it very dry. In addition, the constant the drying and friction (when it moves) can lead to breakage. Satin is better.

    I have a silk scarf that I bought on tenderheaded.com. Even with shipping it was less expensive than scarves that I saw in stores. I looked for scarves in Target and at a couple of department stores with no luck.

    A satin scarf is better, that's what I use on my hair and my daughter.

    A silk or satin scarf is much better. But I sometimes use a satin sleep bonnet from Sally's when I just want my hair to BREATHE without wrapping it or braiding it up...or when I'm just LAZY! :D

    i wear a silk scarf and my edges r fine. I should point out that i 1) don't tie it tightly and 2) pull the scarf down lower on my forehead, almost on the eybrows. Or i use a satin bonnet. Either way, it works for me.

    the reason why i used cotton (which i didn't know that it was bad for your hairline) is because i can tie my hair up at night after i had put some gel on my hair so that it can hold my hair down without it messing up. will a satin bandana hold my hair down as good as a cotton one?

    This is what I use also. Also, I haven't had any problems with it coming off at night.

    I used to have a problem with the satin scarf not staying on at night, so I would tie the satin one on first, then tie the "anchor" cotton bandana down on top of the satin scarf. :)

    Back home at last. Pounding the pavement in a few

    Several years ago, I would sleep with a cotton bandana and my hair in the back would remain so short. Flash foward to the present and my hair in the back is about the same length as the rest of my hair plus it is becoming the longest part of my hair.

    Naturallyme, I have a satin bandana durag that I sleep with on occasion. Sometimes I also sleep with a silk scarf anchored with a cotton bandana because I don't have a silk or satin pillowcase. You may want to check out any BSS (Beauty Supply Stores) in your area to find a bandana print durag. Your hair will thank you for ever saving it from serious breakage.

    I sleep with a silk bandana and it really helps to keep my hair neat.

    Yes... I use a satin scarf to flatten my hair and it works fine. I do have the problem of losing my scarf every night so I may try a cotton one on top or a bonnet on top.
