It’s winter which means it’s time to protect your hair from the dryness and breakage the cold can cause. Bring out the Slap Caps! Slap Caps, or satin lined caps are basically satin lined beanies. They are all the rage in the natural hair community this time of year. Designed to keep hair moisturized and protected from friction and frizz while you’re on the run. They can even be used for bed time. The problem is, not everyone is willing to pay $30 for one. It is a great investment, but there are definitely cheaper alternatives.
What You Will Need
Hot glue gun
Making a “Slap Cap” on your own is extremely easy. So easy, that it literally takes five minutes at the most.
Step 1. Turn your winter hat inside out. Do the same thing for the bonnet of your choice. I chose my daughter’s Barbie hat and an old bonnet that wasn’t being used.
Step 2. Place your hat inside of the satin bonnet.
Step 3. Hot glue the edges of the hat to the bonnet. Be sure to glue all the way around the edges for extra security.
Step 4. Turn the hat back over to the right side, and wear it!
This is a no-sew diy, but sewing the hat and bonnet together would definitely last a lot longer. It’s the perfect diy for the budget naturalista, and a natural hair must have. For a list of more natural hair must haves, you can click here.
