As some of you may be aware, tams and slouchy (oversized beanies) Are all the rage here in the UK at the moment. SO finding a tams one would think shouldn't be problem. WELL not exactly, all of the readily available tams here seem to have man made products in them that send me running for the hills rather than willing to put them on my natty crown.
In my searching online I came across this seller:
Who has a selection of tams made from all natural materials, Wool, Cotton, Linen, Silk and Bamboo.
Now I am aware of the benefits for the hair of a Wool tam, but these other natural materials, do they share the same benefit for dreads, or do they even have adverse effects that I should steer clear of.
For example in the afro dread hair community, it is passed around that you should sleep on a silk or satin pillow or wear a du-rag. I must admit that currently I have draped and pinned silk fabric to my pillow (couldn't be bother to make a pillow case) and I do use a du-rag, however it just doesn't make sense to me how my dreads can benefit from me moving around in the night if I have them tied down tight to my head.
Please guys, enlighten me
