I'm sure you have gotten your hair done or had the perfect wash day hair so you avoided working out because we didn't want to sweat out your perfect do.
As you know, when getting in a good workout you will sweat and you may sweat A LOT. To reduce the sweat messing up those beautiful locs try putting your hair up or back with satin. The best styles for that are a ponytail, pineapple, bun, or just back!! Use a satin scrunchie to prevent dents and creases and use a satin square wrap or edge wrap to help retain your hairstyle. These two help to keep your hair off your shoulders, controlling your hair, and keep your hair in place while you workout.
Satin is well-known fabric for protecting and maintaining healthy hair and reduce frizz, making it a perfect option for wrapping your hair while working.
We have many varieties of prints so you can look cute while wrapping your hair during your workout. Giving you the best gym selfies. #gymlife

I cannot express enough how important it is to cover or wrap your hair up at night. It is very important to your hair’s health. To my knowledge, satin scarves, satin pillowcases, satin bonnets, and satin scrunchies are best to use.
Sleeping with NPTressTreats means less split ends. It greatly reduces breakage, tangles, and thinning. It also protects your hair from dryness.
Sleeping on NPTressTreats helps keep the curls’ shape and style without causing kinks and bumps. NPTressTreats prevents your hair from getting frizzy and poofy and also helps to retain your hairstyle (leaving you to get more sleep because you don't have to wake up early style your hair). #Iwokeuplikethis
Yep, you read it right! NPTressTreats even keeps your hair hydrated! Sleeping on cotton is known to dry out your hair from root to tips, whereas satin helps keep it fresh.
The benefits of using NPTressTreats to protect your hair seems pretty awesome, but wearing a satin bonnet or wrap can't be sexy, right? Wrong! NPTressTreats are super stylish and comes in a variety of prints, styles, and colors.

Vice Article - what's the big deal about scrunchies?
In the latest installment of Cleo’s Closet Case, i-D resident trend–spotter Cleo Le-Tan investigates the return of the most controversial hair.
Cleo Le-Tan ~ Aug 6 2014, 7:15am
A scrunchie is an elastic band camouflaged with any type of fancy fabric sewn around it, creating a sort of cotton, polyester or velvet cream puff to be worn either around a ponytail, a bun, a half pony tail, or in fact, around anything you want on top of a young (or not so young) girl's head. I own one or two, and I must say, they are a very comfortable and convenient hair accessory. The principal advantage of the scrunchie over other methods of hair attachment is that it is softer and less damaging. Since their heyday in the early nineties, scrunchies fell out of fashion for years, cemented by Carrie's damning anti-scrunchie speech on Sex and the City. But now the unassuming puffs are back, with blogs and newspapers like The Huffington Post and The New York Times buzzing about their return. So why all the fuss? Let's take a closer look.
The original scrunchie trend started before I was born, and came to full fruition in the early 90s. Hillary Clinton has been known as a life-long fan of the scrunch, wearing them to state functions and on Air Force One. Figure skaters have historically used them to fasten tight buns. In the show Beverly Hills 90210, not only did the cool girls Brenda and Kelly wear scrunchies, but Andrea the nerd did too, proving that scrunchies are designed to be worn by everybody. And now, since the 90s are so cool again, the scrunchie effect is indeed… in full effect.
The scrunchie is now finding a foothold in the fashion world. In 2012, two cool London girls launched a label called My Crazy Scrunchie. They got their friends Cara Delevingne, Alice Dellal and Suki Waterhouse to model in little videos for the brand, and Vivienne Westwood even commissioned MCS to design some scrunchies for a Red Label show.
In French, scrunchies are called "chouchou", a word also used to mean "darling" or "teacher's pet." The word itself is as naff as it sounds - inevitably, as is a scrunchie. Yes, I find scrunchies stupid. I am not sure stupid is the right word, because it kind of entails scrunchies have a personality, which they don't. They do have a following though (that has been made quite clear), and I suppose it is that following I find excessive. A scrunchie is a useful yet unattractive hair accessory, and nothing more. It does not need, nor does it deserve all the attention it gets.
Still attempting to understand the appeal of this scrunchiness, I decide to talk to Katalina Sharkey de Solis, one of the founders of the popular Instagram account @scrunchiesofinstagram (yes, an all-scrunchie Instagram exists!). She says: "The scrunchie is definitely enjoying a comeback moment right now, kick-started by some strong trend-setting celebrity promotion and cemented by a royal endorsement [former Prince Harry gf Cressida Bonas]. And consequently, the public at large, motivated by a strong sense of nostalgia for popular culture from the scrunchie era has really responded."
I decide to give up and to let the scrunchie live. Not only do I have no say in the matter, but also, the scrunchie is absolutely harmless. If anything, it's convenient and it protects from damaging hair! My problem with the scrunchie is not the scrunchie in itself, but its popularity and all the nonsense around it. Do people fuss about bobby pins and hair elastics? They don't really, so all I demand is for the same to be done with scrunchies. I would like the scrunchie to be left alone. It gives our hair a breather, so why can't we do the same to it?

Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase which minimizes creasing, pulling and wilting.
- If you’re hair is fine and/or thin, gather hair into a low nape level ponytail right before bedtime. Use a soft ribbon, dent-free fabric scrunchie or ponytailcover which won’t dent or add bends to your hair.
- If your hair is medium to thick, add extra frizz protection by wrapping and tightly tying a silk or satin scarf around hair before bed.
For extra protection, gather hair into a dent-free scrunchie and wrap into a protective silk or satin sleep cap.
I found this video and wanted to share. Hope you find it informative!!

Someone told us about a little princess who was diagnosed with cancer. This little princess loves Frozen so we created this head cover for her to wear when outside since all of her hair has fallen out as a result of her chemotherapy treatments. We wanted to create something other than a bonnet. Bonnets are cute, but she needs to be stylish when leaving home!! The head cover has satin on the inside and an elastic band along the back to keep it from slipping off of her head. We hope she loves it. #beatcancer
Does your pillowcase really matter?
According to the website, www.xovain.com, “Sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase is one of life's most simple and relaxing little pleasures. It's like laying down on a breath of cool air; like your face and hair are getting secretly moisturized while you sleep, so that when you wake up you feel more refreshed without doing anything”. 
Sleeping on the right pillowcase can mean the difference between looking 25 and looking 75. Satin pillowcases are beneficial to your hair and skin. Satin pillowcases can eliminate facial folds, keep hair in place, protect eyelashes and brows, and clear your complexion. Satin allows your face to glide against the pillowcase, whereas other fabrics, such as cotton and wool draw the moisture from your skin as you sleep and can cause creases, lines and wrinkles to develop around your eyes, forehead and mouth. In addition, satin keeps eyelashes and eyebrows more intact as you move your face back and forth on the pillow. 
Sleeping on a satin pillowcase helps smooth frizzy hair and minimizes static. The softness of satin eliminates the friction you get when your hair rubs against a harsher fabric. Another added benefit is that satin helps keep your hairdo looking fresher and less “slept on” in the morning. People who suffer from alopecia or side effects of chemotherapy find that sleeping on satin keeps their hair from coming out in clumps. 
Additionally, curly hair tends to easily dry out and cotton often contributes to this dryness.
Regardless of the type, change pillowcases every few days because the natural oils and product residue from your hair can clog facial pores and lead to acne.
Bottom line is satin LOCKS IN MOISTURE, PREVENTS BREAKAGE, and FIGHTS AGAINST ACNE, FINE LINES and WRINKLES. Satin basically works miracles!!
