HOW TO WASH YOUR SATIN BONNETS AND SCARVES.
Updated: Jan 31
Have you ever wondered about how often you should wash your satin-lined bonnets?
It really depends on how often you wear your silk bonnets, and also the amount of oil/ hair products you use. You should protect your hair with satin or silk every day. If you wear your bonnet nightly, then two weeks should be a good time frame to give it a good wash.

Hand-washing is ALWAYS best, but delicate machine wash is also okay.
