Today, I’m happy to introduce a new series of posts…the MANE MAN Inbox! Just send in your question to MANE MAN on Facebook and your question could be featured in an upcoming post. Today’s question comes from Larry:
“Hey Mane Man,
I am a big fan. I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. What do you use to wrap your hair at night? I researched online but most of the stuff are for women. My hair is about 2 inches long, so I wear a wave cap; but my hair is matted and frizzy in the morning. (I have 3b and 3c hair) So I was wondering if you could help me. I really appreciate it.
Thanks so much. And continue posting. You are an inspiration for natural guys out everywhere.”
MM: Hi Larry, thanks for the kind words! Right now I use a Sue Maesta Hood instead of a wave cap because I find it much more comfortable than a wave cap due to the length and density of my hair. You can find them at RickysNYC.com and probably at a local beauty supply store near you. Usually, I apply a light mist of a homemade mix (water, oil, and conditioner from a spray bottle) to my fro and put on the hood before bed. I also sleep on a satin pillowcase. Both combined have helped dramatically with (reducing) matting and tangling of my hair. I hope this helps!
What’s your night time routine like?
Do you have any other suggestions for Larry?
