The Satin-Lined Cap: Your Fav Bonnet & Beanie

Have you been seeing your favorite natural hair influencers sporting something that looks like a beanie but then again can be worn as a bonnet? I have! Up and down my feed, continuously. After seeing so many ads, I wanted to give it a try. Outside of my precious bundles, I am #teamnatural and I’m always looking to try out anything that will protect my curls!

The Satin-Lined Cap: Trendy, but Not a Trend

When I first heard of the Slap, I thought it was just another ploy to get us women into a new fad, but I was so wrong. The Slaps or Satin-lined Caps by Grace Eleyae are stylish caps that keep hair moisturized, protected and knot-free while sleeping, and stay in place day or night. I know, I know. You’re probably thinking how in the world the cap remains on your head, right? Well, each cap has an elastic band that keeps your tendrils from escaping. No more waking up in the middle of the night to throw on your bonnet with the satin-lined cap in your possession!

The beauty about the slap is that you don’t have to sacrifice style to protect your hair! The fact that you can wear them to bed as a protective barrier and you can wear them out as a beanie is totally genius. It’s perfect for those days where you don’t want to do your hair (I’m talking to you Ms. Twist Out!) I know all lazy girls are thanking Grace Eleyae somewhere!

The Bonnet You’ve Been Looking For

When I received my satin-lined cap, I was kinda obsessed with how soft it was. The exterior is a breathable material and the interior is that cool, slippery feel satin typically has. The look wasn’t what sold me, though. I oil my natural hair twice a week and was pleasantly surprised to not see any product on the satin. So yes, no residue and no slipping off. What else can you want in a bonnet?

Whether you wear your satin-lined cap out or indoors, you’re rewarded with the extra bonus of eliminating unnecessary breakage and frizz! Slide on the slap to keep your hair moisturized and silky smooth all day long.

Try Grace Eleyae Products for Yourself!

Grace Eleyae has plenty of pretty colors and other products (think satin pillowcases and scrunchies!), so be sure to check them all out! Because I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do, I’m giving away a 10% discount to any of you who are first time buyers! Don’t forget to let me know how you love it!

Bloggers in New York City

Remember a couple of weeks back when I was flooding Snapchat and Instastories with my adventures in NYC?

Everything, and when I say, everything was complimentary!

Here’s how it all went down.

The Best Face Oils for Your Skin

We’ve all been told at some point in our lives that we should keep oil far away from our skin–whether it had been a beauty counter rep telling you, your doctor or your mama! It didn’t matter if it was oil splattering up from fried chicken pan, the natural oils we find in our skin, or organic oils. To us women, all kinds were synonymous with “no bueno.” Because oil = breakouts, right?

 

Not necessarily.

How Trying to Be “Perfect” Stunts Your Growth

Hey Adorners, Happy Spring! I pray that this is a season of growth for you all. It has already begun to be a trying time for me.

 

In the past couple of months, my life was going pretty well. Too well. This is entirely a foreign concept to accept, as something always goes wrong for me! Ask my friends. I always have little, random moments where I shrug and have to laugh and say, "it's just the way my life is set up."

 

So to go along life without any mishaps was too fishy for me. But finally, the challenges came.
