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.

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.

The Most Important Reasons Why You Should Love Yourself

Self-care has been one of the most blatant topics of conversation in our society lately.  It’s all about making sure your mental health is given serious attention, indulging in the things that make you happy, and appreciating who you are…especially in the state of this crazy country of ours.

 

Inevitably, when one considers self-care, self-love isn’t too far off. Because why take care of yourself if you don’t love yourself? Why work out, take bubble baths, or have that one cheat meal if you don’t love yourself?

#GIRLBOSS, Call the Shots with Maybelline New York

My favorite part of my makeup routine is tending to my eyes. I play on my almond shape with black eyeliner to create the perfect cat eye (when God permits haha). I add neutrals and golds shadow to pronounce my dark brown hue. And I take my time to accentuate my lashes with mascara because that’s my favorite part! Even on days I barely have anything on, mascara remains my go-to in order to come alive.
