The last time I went to bed without a bonnet, I woke up to find my pillowcase covered in hair oil (bad for my skin) and my hair a hot, frizzy mess (bad for, well, me). Not to be dramatic, but hair bonnets are as essential and necessary as oxygen. Wrapping your hair up in one helps to extend the life of hairstyles, prevent frizz, and retain moisture while you get your Zzzz in. Sleeping without one can dry your hair out or cause breakage and other hair woes. Silk or satin bonnets provide all those benefits wrapped up in plush, soft fabric that makes styling your hair the next morning a seamless process. You can never have too many bonnets, so here are 13 more styles that will keep your hair happy, healthy, and hydrated.

St. Lucia Cream Satin Bonnet
Glow by Daye’s fan-favorite bonnets come double lined with satin inside the cap to protect your hair and satin on the outside for a comfier sleep.
Yeli Yeli Bonnet
Cee Cee’s Closet’s silk headwraps are great to sleep in, but they deserve to be shown off outside. With fabrics from luxurious, breathable silk to stunning, bold Ankara prints, you’ll have a collection of headwraps for every occasion.
Cordless Deep Conditioning Heat Cap
So this isn’t a bonnet you can sleep in but it still deserves your attention. Investing in a cordless heating cap will make your wash day seamless, as you can multitask while giving your hair the proper TLC it needs.
Emma Surgical Capscrub
Saving lives is no easy feat, and the last thing medical workers should be worrying about is flyaways getting in their face throughout the day. This “capscrub” is much cuter than the disposable ones and is large enough to fit thicker, curlier hair.
This doubles as a scarf and a bonnet that you can tie tightly around your head to protect your edges and prevent your cap from slipping off mid-sleep.
Slip Pure Silk Turban
Slip already makes some of the most luxurious sleep eye masks and pillowcases—you thought its silk turban would be any different? Designed with silk inside and out, your hair will rest as peacefully as you do throughout the night, frizz-free.
Large Silky Bonnet Satin Sleep Cap
This affordable bonnet from Amazon is a bestseller for its large size (extraordinary for those with thick hair) and its wide band. The wideband rest comfortably on your head to prevent the cap from slipping, and its soft elastic doesn’t pull or tug on your edges.
Jumbo Satin Bonnet Cap for Braids
Sitting down for seven-plus hours for a protective style is stressful enough. But finding a sleeping bonnet with enough room to protect said hairstyle is a journey in itself. This super long bonnet alleviates that stress. It crawls down to your mid-back to give your waist-length box braids its breathing room.
Bonnets usually come with just a drawstring, but this one from Vernon Francois trades in the drawstring for two long strings that can be tied around your head for extra support during those restless nights.
Satin Sleep Cap – Blush
An even fancier alternative to your favorite durag.
Felicia Hair Bonnets
Women’s Large Double Sided Ankara Silk Bonnet
For the indecisive folks, Felicia Hair Bonnets’ caps come reversible with Ankara print on one side and a solid color on the other. What’s more, the company offers nine different styles to choose from—a picky chooser’s dream.
For a bonnet you can wear every day, look no further than Grace Eleyae’s collection of practical headwear. It doubles as a sleep bonnet and as an everyday cap that keeps the hair moisturized and protected no matter what.
Silke London’s 100% silk fabric keeps frizz at bay and protects your hair between salon visits. Plus, it’s dipped in a bright pink and orange colorway that will make any bad hair day look good.
