Default Where can I get a good scarf?

I just recently tried using a scarf to help preserve my curls at night and hopefully minimize tangles and single strand knots. (I pineapple my hair and I then put on the scarf and put on a bonnet to keep the scarf in place. Then refresh with water and if necessary KCKT.) The scarf I have is okay, polyester with satin bands but not satin smooth throughout.

I was wondering, where on-line can I get a good quality satin, silk satin, or silk charmeuse scarf that I can use for my hair?

The long sleep cap black 100% silk, almost $50 with shopping, but well worth it, IMHO. I am a texture person, and I love the way the silk feels vs the feel of my satin pillowcases.

Does this let your hair slip around and stuff?

I think so. I've been getting much less frizz on second day hair than when I pineappled and didn't use the sleep cap. This is my hair on second day without adding anything (water, gel, etc). I fluffed out the roots and under layer; it's a little flatter than I prefer, but for second day hair for me, I'm loving it. Where can I get a good scarf?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1382892271.927629.jpg

Another option, if you need something cheaper, is to get a silk scarf or scarves from Dharma Trading Company. Silk satin scarves start at $2.08, but Habotai start at $1.35. (NAYY)

I have one of the big square scarves from Pretty Antoinett's. It's huge. Nice quality silk, too.

I definitely want to get the big square scarves. Did you get the plain ones or the something from the gold scarf collection. The Gold collection looks really pretty but does not look to have the smooth satiny finish I am looking for.

I just got a plain black one, since I only use it around the house. Now I'm wondering if it would do anything if I used it to plop...

Not sure what you mean by do anything.

I've used my huge (44"x44") square silk scarves from Dharma for plopping overnight with great results, and they're very comfortable. Habotai for $8.45, Crepe De Chine for $14.55, Silk Charmeuse for $19.25.

If you want not-white, you can easily and cheaply dye them in your favourite colours yourself, using KoolAid, Easter Egg, or other acid dyes, and pop them in the microwave to set the dye (directions on the Dharma website).

ETA: That said, Pretty AnntoiNet's has very nice, high quality products. I just think that people who need a low priced alternative should know that they don't need to settle for non-silk.

I'm thinking silk is the way to go as I got third day hair today for the first time since going CG! Chee hoo! The only change in my routine has been using the silk sleep cap

I mean work better for plopping than a flour sack towel. I can't sleep in the scarf. For whatever reason, it always comes off unless I tie it so tight it gives me a headache. A bonnet stays on, so I use that. The Dharma store is pretty close to where my husband works, but not near enough to where we live for me to drive down there. I guess, though, that their shipping wouldn't be too bad for something as light as silk.

Ah. Got it. I wasn't sure whether you meant that, something similar, or were worried that the dye would come off. I find a silk scarf more comfortable than cotton because it doesn't just hold the moisture right next to my skin and hair, feeling clammy. However, if you find a bonnet more comfortable…

Dharma's shipping rates are extremely reasonable in my estimate. I used to live in that area (San Anselmo), and think I know where the storefront is (their warehouse BTW has moved, but is still in Marin). I suspect that with the price of gas, First Class Mail, which is how my packages from them arrive, is probably just as cheap. Silk is super light. (I'm a handspinner, i.e., I spin yarn, and I was totally gobsmacked by how cheap silk fibre is by volume when I first ventured into spinning it.)

I think the storefront is on 4th St. in San Rafael. Their silk pillowcases are very reasonable--may have to get some of those!

Just checked--the warehouse is in Petaluma now. Too bad that's not open to the public; I live in Sonoma Co. and know exactly where the warehouse is.

I have some of Dharma's silk pillowcases, and love them.

Sorry I got the new warehouse site wrong, and glad you corrected me.

It's really weird to me that when we lived in San Rafael, then San Anselmo when I was a teenager, we used to drive by the building their storefront is in frequently, and I'd always notice it. I have no recollection what was in the building at the time, other than that it was something totally uninteresting to me. Since I didn't drive at the time, and was usually reading, I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to where we were, but always seemed to look up at that point for no particular reason.

It's funny what you notice (and don't) before you can drive, isn't it? BTW, I grew up in Mill Valley and Tiburon. Went to Redwood for three years, although I graduated overseas.
