How to Wrap Your Hair In a Silk Scarf!

As I explained in one of my recent Hair-tip-aroo posts, wrapping your hair in a silk scarf at night is a great way to protect it from damage while you sleep. Even though wrapping the scarf looks somewhat complicated, it really is quite simple. All you gotta do is follow these easy breezy steps!

Step 1: Drape scarf over head. Gather loose ends of scarf and twist into a long "ponytail".
Step 2: From the base of the "twisted ponytail", begin wrapping it around in a bun (clockwise).
Step 3: Tuck end of scarf (or "twisted ponytail") under the back of the scarf (at nape of neck).
Step 4: ...And WALLAH! You've just successfully tied your silk scarf! Now go catch some ZZZZZZZZ's!

Where can I buy a sarf for twisting like that? The scarves i have tried never cover all of my hair.

@ Anonymous and miracle- the best scarf is 100% silk and atleast a yard or so of fabric. The key is wrapping/pinning the hair underneath so the scarf covers everything. I bought my scarf from an East Indian shop a long time ago. If you can't find silk, go with satin or fabric w/ a satiny smooth finish. Be careful b/c some fabrics actually dry out the hair. I personally only trust silk.
