Lately I have been seeing a lot of posts on Facebook, Twitter and some blogs that I follow about an increase in women going out in satin sleeping caps and rollers; mostly flexi rods/bendy rollers. I am not talking about you were called to your child’s school or to the hospital in an emergency and dashed over there in rollers and pyjamas, no these women are going shopping, to the bank, to the mall and various other places, they are basically doing their every day errands while wearing a satin sleeping cap or rollers. Growing up I remember seeing one or two ladies out at the local corner shop usually very early in the morning around 6 or 7 am with similar heads probably purchasing breakfast items or something but it was not a common occurrence. Personally I wouldn’t be caught dead walking around on the streets with a satin cap or rollers barring an emergency and even then trust me depending on the nature of the emergency I would probably tie a scarf before I leave the house. These "sightings" from the people who posted on social media were mostly observed among black women in the United States, Accra Ghana and Lagos Nigeria.
So ladies what are your thoughts on going out with rollers and satin caps on your head; Have you done it, would you do it or do you know anyone who does it and what do they say is their reason for doing it?
