About Us

What happens when you’re trying to maintain healthy hair while serving Active Duty Army, traveling, full-time college student, and parenting and realize that although your hair is growing, it’s breaking just as fast as it grows?

One of the things I discovered was my soft cotton pillowcases and cheap faux satin (aka polyester) bonnets were damaging my natural hair right before my eyes. How? Glad you asked.

Although the cotton is smooth, it soaks up all the moisture, or for some what little bit of moisture, in your hair causing frizz, dryness, and the dreaded hair breakage.

After spending so much time between field exercises, range training, and serving time down range in Iraq, I wished I had protection for my hair under my helmet. Then one day while at the range it came to me.. satin in my hat.

When I was learning to sew, I started making pillowcases for my pillows made out of just satin. I had satin everywhere! So much so that Eli has to have something satin on his skin to go to sleep; usually it's one of my hats, pillowcases, or scarves. 

Soon I said goodbye to my Walmart bonnets and hello to satin pillowcases. While traveling I realized that I don’t necessarily think to pack a pillowcase, I mean after all is a pillowcase on your packing list? And along came the satin lined hat.

 After testing out various styles, we settled on satin lined hats made with fashionable materials that tackles frizz, moisture retention and hair breakage.
