A little over a year ago I stopped wearing my bonnet and just slept on satin pillow cases because I noticed that my hair would feel and look dry after sleeping in the "satin" bonnets that I purchased from the beauty supply store. One of the first things I was told I needed as a natural was a bonnet, everyone swore by them so I was so confused when I felt like the beloved bonnet was working against my natural hair. I began searching natural hair forums to see if anyone else was experiencing the dryness that I was and was surprised that there were several naturalistas who were going through the same thing and that is when I gave up on the BSS bonnets.
Given my past with bonnets I was a little leery about wearing one again but I must say that I am so happy I gave this one a try. Upon receiving my Ebonnet in the mail the first thing I noticed was how well it is made. I could tell immediately that with proper care it will last me a while unlike the bonnets you purchase from the beauty supply stores. That alone makes the Ebonnet worth the money so any other benefits are a bonus. I have been wearing my Ebonnet every night since I received it and the way it keeps my hair moisturized is amazing. I still moisturize and seal my ends every day but the rest of my hair has not needed to be re-moisturized. This is a bonus for me because that means I don't need to add more product to my hair which allows me to wear light, fluffy twist outs that I love. The final thing that I would say I love the most about the Ebonnet is the size. It is so spacious making it perfect for any afro. The true test for me was wearing the bonnet to bed without re-twisting my hair. The bonnet is big enough that it protects my hair without smashing it so my fro does not lose its shape. I love that I can save so much time on styling my hair. I can take off my Ebonnet, spritz my ends with water, seal with an oil, shake, and go!
Overall I am so impressed with the Ebonnet and definitely plan to buy more. I honestly don't have anything bad to say about it. On a scale of 1-5 it is definitely a 5 and I would recommend it to anyone!
In addition to the bonnets Eboni makes and sells scarves, pillow cases, and scrunchies. All of her items can be purchased from her Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ebonicurls. While there are a lot of bonnets out there, there is only ONE Ebonnet so please make sure you all are getting the real deal!!
