Satin products are an essential part of any healthy hair care regimen. You can feed your curls and kinks to keep the strands strong and the roots moisturized but what about the hats, caps and hoods you use that directly combat all your efforts? 

Benefits 

Traditional hoodies and hats are made with materials that simply aren’t kind to natural hair. But satin? Well here are some major benefits: 

  • Satin naturally repels moisture, it doesn’t extract and absorb it, allowing your hair to actually retain its moisture and properly moisturized hair is stronger and healthier.
  • Compared to cotton, satin is a much softer and silkier material. You see, traditional hoodies are often made with cotton, when hair interacts with a material like cotton there is a lot of friction which causes frizz and breakage. Due to the silky nature of satin there is a lot less friction which helps minimize breakage and frizz.
  • Satin is simply less disruptive. Whether it be full out fro, last night’s twists, summer braids or your forever locs, satin saves your style! Less friction means more preservation.

KIN Apparel Satin 


Above all, we value quality! Our satin is top quality not just because that’s what you deserve but because it’s what works! We use 85gsm 50*75D satin for our hoodies which translates to a heavier weight and higher thread count for that thick, soft and silky feel. Our pillowcases are made with charmeuse satin, a softer type of satin for that luxury feel. Our satin provides you with all the benefits above plus overall comfort! While your hair experiences the luxury of a satin lined hood you can enjoy the luxury of a top quality, soft and comfy hoodie.
