at night i always put on a silk bonnet to protect my hair as i sleep. But I've noticed that in the morning my thick 3b/3c hair has a rather funny shape and has extremely shrunk. has this ever happened to you? are there any alternatives to bonnetts? thxxxx
Yep, there are definitely alternatives. You could try just sleeping on a silk/satin pillow case alone. Or use your satin pillow case and wear your hair in a ponytail or braid instead of the bonnet.

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)
yepp same thing happened to me .. i bought a satin pillowcase from Sally's for like $7 or $8, and i haven't needed the bonnet since. it isn't as drying to my hair as my cotton pillowcase was. hope you find what helps you.

four fat braids every night; moisturize or spray w/ water, seal w/ EVOO every other night.

Mine does too, but if I'm not going to wash/co-wash that morning, I just spritz my hair with my aloe juice/water mix. After I spritz, I shake and then it pretty much falls back out in place.
