    Yep, there are definitely alternatives. You could try just sleeping on a silk/satin pillow case alone. Or use your satin pillow case and wear your hair in a ponytail or braid instead of the bonnet.

    yepp same thing happened to me .. i bought a satin pillowcase from Sally's for like $7 or $8, and i haven't needed the bonnet since. it isn't as drying to my hair as my cotton pillowcase was. hope you find what helps you.

    Mine does too, but if I'm not going to wash/co-wash that morning, I just spritz my hair with my aloe juice/water mix. After I spritz, I shake and then it pretty much falls back out in place.

    Lol yup this has happened to me! Good alternatives are wrapping in a scarf instead of a bonnet or the satin pillowcase thing the other ppl mentioned.
