If you follow me on Instagram you already saw the picture of the satin sleep cap I made for my 3 Weeks old daughter...yes you read right!! Babies need some TLC too you know!!
The idea came when I was thinking about how to avoid that line of demarcation babies have at the back their heads...my two boys had it and it drove me crazy but they were boys and their hair textures were completely different but I'm not about to fold my hands and watch it happen to my precious little girl! Lol! So I thought if satin sleep caps help protect edges from thinning out and dryness, surely making a satin sleep cap by lining the beanie I got from the hospital when I had Mitaire will work just the same...so I purchased a quarter yard of pink satin and here's a quick pictorial...
You'll need a baby beanie cap, satin material, scissors, thread and needle
First measure the amount of satin you will need to line inside the beanie;
Turn the beanie inside out and sew the satin material to the top of the beanie where the cap is joined
Proceed to sew the two ends of the satin material inside out so that when you turn them over, the seam is on the inside. Neatly fold the edges of the cap to match with the edge of the beanie and sew the two together
Fold over the beanie, et viola!!
Wear your precious baby!!
Fingers crossed this will help to prevent thin edges or that line of demarcation, other things I'm doing include making her sleep on her tummy (only when I'm watching her) so that there's limited friction at the back of her hair, I'm also still using only Savvy and Chic whipped Shea butter in buttercream
When I apply the Shea butter on her hair, I always use the little brush they gave us at the hospital to brush her hair while giving her a gentle head massage for extra stimulation to her tender scalp....these things I believe will add up and give her really lush hair :)
That's all for now, second post for today coming up so stay tuned!!
P. S if you have sent in your pic for the 2016 6 inches of growth challenge and I am yet to respond, not to worry...I will get round to it. Thanks.
