Style Protection with SLAPS

Protecting your hair while being stylish seems like an oxymoron. How can you possibly be cute with a hair-protecting accessory?! This is where SLAPS (satin-lined caps) comes in!

SLAPS are cute, beanie-shaped caps lined with satin to keep your strands from loosing moisture or from being pulled out while wearing. Grace Eleyae created these caps after experiencing severe hair loss during a trip to Africa. In the cold months, many of us are looking for low-maintenance styles that we can wear for days to keep our hair protected. These caps are perfect for covering that twist-out and protecting it as you lounge around the house!

I love that SLAPS come in such a wide variety of colors and that it is machine washable! The quality of the satin lining and overall stitching is amazing, and the cloth material on the outside is very soft with beautiful texture and tone. The elastic band helps the cap stay in place far better than any bonnet I’ve ever tried to use. And it’s made with curly girls in mind, because we LOVE satin accessories.

There are so many ways to wear a SLAP; you can be just as versatile with this accessory as you are with your hairstyles. It can also be worn outside on cold days, as I have found it is actually pretty warm! You can sleep in it at night to preserve your style or wear it while in traveling on long flights to prevent your hair from touching unknown surfaces. The possibilities are endless.

Aside from being the perfect gift for yourself this holiday season, you can give the gift of stylish protection to your curl friends! You can get your hands on a SLAP at There are so many fabulous colors to choose from as well as other satin accessories such as pillow cases, scrunchis and caps!
