Mattie's Bonnets are made to last and with some extra love from you it will last for years~
You should always wash your bonnet regularly to reduce product buildup. Especially if you use a lot of oil based hair products. The chemicals and oils in products will stain fabric and break down elastic if not washed out weekly.
If you use a lot of hair product please consider purchasing a drawstring bonnet.
Satin bonnets are made from 100 % polyester fabric and can be washed by hand or washing machine in a mesh lingerie bag on gentle cycle in cool water. Dry flat or tumble dry on low heat in dryer.
Cloth cover bonnets are made from 100 % cotton. African fabrics are wax block print which leaves fabrics very stiff. We have prewashed fabric to preshrink and soften before cut. Further washing by you will further soften fabric. Cotton cover bonnets will wrinkle heavily. Wash by hand or machine wash in lingerie bag on gentle cycle with cool water. Dry flat or tumble dry on low heat in dryer.
