Top Reasons Why You Should Wear a Sleep Cap

This post has been verified by Ali Nowroozi

There are many benefits to using a nightcap for sleeping. In fact, it serves a different purpose depending on your circumstances. For example, a night cap for hair can keep knots at bay during the night. Especially with all the wriggling around we do to get comfortable. There’s no wonder we sometimes wake up with fresh tangles. It also reduces frizziness, so there is a smaller chance of rocking a tousled morning bed head look. Additionally, sleeping caps minimize split ends. This, in turn, maintains hair in a better and healthier condition. Plus, it reduces the frequency you have to get your hair trimmed. As a result, you will save money on haircuts. Not only are there sleeping hats for women but there are also men’s silk sleeping caps, better known as durag’s. They are worn to create beautiful subtle waves on afro hair. Another use for sleep caps for men and women is to maintain dreadlocks and braids.

You now have a brief insight into the reasons why sleeping hats can be beneficial to hair. But now, we will go through the top reasons why you should wear a sleep cap during hair loss. The reality is that there is so much emphasis placed on what they wear during the day. We often neglect what to wear to bed. So, often ladies with hair loss for the first time wonder why to wear a nightcap for sleeping. Here are the reasons why it will do you a world of good.

  1. Performs the role that hair would
  2. Minimizes discomfort
  3. Cools the scalp
  4. Promotes healthy sleep
  5. Has other uses


  1. Performs the role that hair would

For ladies with alopecia or in chemo, a sleep hat has a very important role. It performs the role that hair normally would. Okay, but how does it do this? It provides much-needed insulation and warmth to the scalp. Cancer patients can get especially cold during the night. So, a sleeping hat is a fantastic means for the skin to feel less exposed. Especially if wearing headwear or a wig during the day is normal. Hence, it acts as a comforting safety blanket.

  1. Minimizes discomfort

Night hats for sleeping work wonders in minimizing discomfort. This is so important during chemo as scalp sensitivity is heightened. So, the fact that a hair cover for sleep avoids friction between the scalp and pillowcase is a blessing. Also, a sleep hat lessens scalp irritation. It is a well-known fact that sensitive skin is a common after-effect of hair loss. Thus, a bed hat covering the scalp comes as a welcome relief.

  1. Cools the scalp

A sleeping cap for women not only warms the scalp during cold nights. Whatever the climate, a bamboo sleeping hat can help regulate your body’s temperature. So, during warm nights it keeps you feeling cool and relaxed.
