I’ve tried various styles of satin bonnets and sleep caps over the years, but there always seemed to be something that didn’t make them what I hoped they would be... the closest I ever got to decent curl protection was wearing a neck gaiter, such as a Buff, to bed... Then, as I kept on searching for the perfect protection for my curls, I came across the Wear Your Curls website and saw the Curlcase...
At first, I thought, well this is just a more expensive buff! And I was cheeky enough to contact their customer support to ask them what the difference was between a Curlcase and a Buff.... I got the most amazing friendly and informative reply... and so I decided to order a Curlcase and give it a try ...
So what IS the difference between a Curlcase and a buff, you might ask? Firstly, the Curlcase is seriously built to last... it’s really well made and tough. Next, the fabric is silky soft and really gentle on the the hair... the Curlcase has just the right amount of ‘give’ so it supports the curls whilst gently holding them in place all night.
Also. it was explained to me that, unlike most neck gaiters, the fabric the Curlcase is made of won’t leech moisture out of the hair, it’ll hold it in your curls, where you want it to be. I can now confirm from my own experience that this is true.
I ordered a small size because my hair is only shoulder length when curly... that size gives me more than enough coverage with quite a bit to spare.
Now.... I have quite a big head (!) and I was concerned that maybe the Curlcase would be too tight for me, I contacted customer support once again and they were so helpful, suggesting i stretch the Curlcase just a little by pulling it tightly over something for a day or two. I had no concerns about doing that because I could see that the Curlcase was strong enough to take the strain. Result... after a day being stretched over the back of a dining chair, my Curlcase has widened by about an extra half inch and my Curlcase is a perfect fit.
I can’t recommend Curlcase enough.. I’m a convert and am about to order a second one today! If you’ve been wondering about Curlcase and sitting on the fence like I was... don’t sit there.. do it!
At last, after years of searching, I’ve found the perfect solution for keeping my curls intact over night. As I write this I’m on day 7 curls and all I’ve done in the morning is take off my Curlcase and shake my head. Isn’t that every curlygirl’s dream scenario? 😊
