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. For long hair, place in a bun before wrapping instead of a loose ponytail. Make sure you cover those ears and cross it tight before front tying and tucking. Ears and skin will provide enough friction with the scarf so it does not slide or slip off. Below are two video tutorials for tying this scarf. The pineapple method for protecting curls and coils and option two for covering a hair wrap or laying edges.
