So to avoid or help prevent breakage/pillow lint getting iny my hair i currently use a...satin fabric night cap when i go to sleep at night. Thing is, its not designed for too long of hair. So what if anything do ya'll use to keep the dreads covered at night? Are there any products out there that are designed with longer hair in mind? Cause...somehow the idea of tying a damn satin pillow case around my head at night is a little too silly, even for me =) Preciate any feedback.

I have to use a satin bonnet or silk pillowcase when I sleep or else I wake up with lint in all of my new dreddies. My locs are like a magnet for lint!

lint is kinda annoying, a wool tam will still give ya linties. I don't personally use anything but I do notice on the parts of my hair that's not knotted as tightly as the rest the lint likes to get in there. Try switching to pillowcases that don't make lint. My Egyptian cotton ones don't. My brown fleece blanket, now that's another story! :o)

http://www.dreadsock.com/ I bought one with my first set of dreads. If your hair is a dark color, lint will look terrible in your locs :(I think there are similar products out there. Or if you know someone that can sew something similar up for you, it beats tying a pillow case around your head, LOL.

I used a pair of my girls nylons. The waist part because it's roomy and just tied the legs into knots and cut the long leg pieces off. It's just like a stretchy skull cap. Helps your locks lay down to.

Also keeps the lint off and wax off your pillow if you use it.
