I celebrated 20 years of rocking my natural hair this year. 2o years relaxer-free and loving it! To mark the milestone, I decided to do something that I’ve always wanted to do with my hair—I chopped it all off! Why? After wearing locs for 8 years, my tapered fro for several years, and my big fro for even more years, I wanted the easiest style I’ve ever had. And, y’all, my drop fade is that style I’ve been longing for. Today, I’m sharing how I’ve adjusted to maintaining this new do, from the simple routine to the trusted products I rely on to keep my hair looking fresh and fashionable.
How I Keep My Natural Hair and Style Protected at Night with a Slap
One of the benefits of a super short natural hair cut is that wash days went from hours to mere minutes. So, I wash my hair all the time. Since I’ve been working out at night, and I’m such a head sweater, I wash my hair in the evenings now. To cut down on the need to wash (or even just wet) my hair again the next morning, I wash and style my hair at night. But, what about bed head when I sleep? My go-t0 product for keeping my style locked in while I sleep—a Slap (Satin-Lined Cap) by Grace Eleyae—keeps bed head at bay.
When I was first introduced to the slap a year ago, I knew it would be a product I would love because it met several of my hair’s needs. Because of its satin lining and elastic band, a slap is the perfect sleep cap because it stays in place all night and hence keeps the hair moisturized while sleeping.
As if that wasn’t enough, slaps are quite fashionable and look good enough to style on the go as well. Remember when I traveled in a slap?

With my new short cut, I simply need to fluff my hair with my fingers (or a pick) in the mornings when I remove my slap. And, my hair is ready for the day.
