I cannot guarantee that your silk scarf will never fall off your head while you sleep BUT with this method, it is not very often that in the morning when I wake up my scarf is left behind on my pillow. There are no annoying knots, no headaches and I am able to secure the scarf tightly enough to my head. I use this method to lay my edges as well it works for me and has been my go-to for years. It also works for satin polyester scarves and wraps. Let me know if the Phoebe Luna Method works for you!
