Pretty Wrap?
Does anyone here use Pretty Wrap? I was wondering what your thoughts were on it. Also, if you plop, does this wrap work for plopping?

Looks interesting. THe bonnet was a no go for me but this could do the trick.

Okay, so my Pretty Wrap came in the mail today. I am having beginners operating issues, but I have to say that it looks 10 times better than when I use my T-shirt on my head overnight.

Tonight I co-washed, conditioned, KCCC'd (notice no gel because I am trying to see how the KCCC is going to work for me) plopped for a few hours and now have my head in the Pretty Wrap, so I will report back any results tomorrow. Seeing the results, I will be able to compare it to nothing at all on a regular pillowcase, a satin pillowcase with a half dried pineapple, and a overnight plop with a T-Shirt.

Be back to let you know how it goes!

And here is the link to the wrap, incase you are wondering.

Ooh, this looks very promising. I've been looking at various sleep bonnets but the ones I've found are all lined with icky synthetic satin, not silk, and I can't sleep on a satin pillowcase, either. I've tried a silk scarf, and they slip off. I've been putting my hair up in a big bun now that it's so long instead of a pineapple because I think it protects it better from rubbing breakage. I wish I could make one of these but I'm sewing-challenged. Maybe I could use a much bigger square of silk and learn to tie it better . . . .
Please let us know how you like it!

Haha, just as an aside: My mother came to say hello to me, walked into my bedroom and made a funny face but didn't say anything. I said, "I am trying something with my hair" and she said, "I can see that."

However, I didn't get any wierd comments so that was good. :thumbup: I can imagine if she saw me in my T-shirt that there would have been a comment.

Morning After Review:

Keep in mind that I am still in the process of figuring out what is best for my curls/waves in terms of products.

I slept better with the pretty wrap than I had with a T-shirt plop. It was less bulky and just felt better at night and didn't wake me up at all. It was a little warm, but nothing I couldn't handle. I really only thought about it because other people mention their bonnets being too hot, so I made sure to notice.
When I woke up and took off the wrap I had a sligt indentation on my forehead, but it went away after 30 seconds of being off. Since I used KCCC I needed to SOTC but it looked good. If I had to compare it to the other methods I have used (see above) in terms of comfort and result, it is definately preferrable to all of them. And, even though I am not at a good place with my curls yet, it still made my curls look better than with the other methods.

Hope this helped someone, anyone.

Yay, glad to hear it was a success! :thumbup:This is going on my wish list. BTW, most of the other bonnets & sleep caps & pillow cases are made of or lined with synthetic satin, which means they're going to be hot -- they just don't breathe. And I can't stand it near my skin. Silk breathes, so it will be cooler when you are warm, but silk is also warm when it's cool. So I doubt it would be too hot under most circs.

Funny about your mom's observation/lack of further comment!

Now of course we want to see a photo of you in your wrap. :wink: Which color did you get? They need to add more colors and patterns.

I will say that I don't look the same way in it as the girl in the picture does. I agree that they need more colors. I got the white but I may just buy a new one in a different color because right after I took mine off today and set it on the bedside table, an oil spilled on it. :angry2: Blech.
