Lounging Around with Satin-Lined Caps

Satin-Lined Caps

Satin-Lined Caps (SLAP) premiered in 2014 with family and friends as Grace Eleyae’s first customers and reviewers. It was an automatic success which led Ms. Eleyae to sell the SLAPs on Etsy. As a successful woman in business, eight months later launching, Grace Eleyae, Inc. Ms. Eleyae’s provided me with a Satin-Lined Cap to review. The following post is my own opinion.

With similar products in the business that try to offer the same or similar protection for our hair, SLAPs are stylish and can be worn while running errands, at night for your sleep time or just lounging around doing household things – like Netflix binge watching. Not many Naturals afford the opportunity to purchase satin pillowcases, sheets, and blankets. Ms. Eleyae’s design offers satin protection on the inside of the cap with an expanding opening to fit over a head full of hair to even securely fit on my short style.

I chose the latter and replaced my bonnet with the SLAP.  From a sleep filled night to the lounge around on a Sunday morning, the Satin-Lined Cap stayed on my head and my little bit of hair stayed protected.

Ways that you can use the Satin-Lined Cap:

    • As a night time routine. Twist, braid or maintain your wash n go into the following days.

Want to deep condition, but have errands to run? Satin-Lined Caps are stylish and available in a variety of colors to be worn outside.

Lounging around at home, I tried the SLAP and was very content with the feel of my curls. With Type 4 Hair, especially my kinky hair, it has the potential to become dry throughout the day. After a full day of wearing a SLAP, my hair was not dry and even the sides of my fade cut were intact. The satin insert is a win!! It’s been a great tool in maintaining my short natural hair and for mini natural too!!

      , can be washed, conditioned and styled days before and kept neat and protected while wearing one of the children sized Satin-Lined Caps.

How do I keep my Satin-Lined Cap clean?

Satin-Lined Caps will become that go-to bonnet, head wrap, protective layering for your natural hair. After a while, all the oils and products you use on your hair will transfer to the cap and it should be washed. I would not machine wash satin items with a regular cycle.’s frequently-asked-questions suggests, “Machine wash them in cold water, with like colors or on delicate. Either hang dry or tumble dry on low.” If you are not sure about placing your SLAP in the wash, you may use a mild detergent and hand wash your Satin-Lined Cap in the sink, gently extract water without wringing and twisting and hang dry till it’s ready to be used again.

    I’ve seen these caps but haven’t bought one yet. They’re super cute and definitely don’t need anything to make my already dry hair any dryer! Will check the website. Also, I probably would hand wash. It may be better?

      Hand washing anything with silk is better. Thanks for reading. Let us know if you get one.

    I love my SLAP cap. I wore it while in London because it was cold and the cap looked cute on me. I actually sleep in it sometimes.

    I have never heard of this cap but I love the concept of it being satin lined. I think I need one of these in my life.

    I’ve seen these advertised on social media. I need to try them out for myself and my daughter. I have a short cut but I never protect my hair at bed time. I put a stocking cap on hers to protect her hairstyle.

      Hi Mimi! I would do the same. I’ve noticed a difference since wearing this cap though. They have kid sizes too which is cool. The aduItsize doesn’t fit on her braided styles.

      Hi Tiffany, you can compare similar issues you have with your hair that others also have while analyzing your curl pattern. I knew I had kinky (4c) pattern hair by knowing that my hair resembled the look of others and had the same characteristics. You can also visit a hair stylist that will let you know your trouble areas.

    I always see the ads for these caps but I haven’t tried them. I’m curious to see how much better than my bonnet it’ll be because I love my pink bonnet haha.
