How does one keep silk head covering on during the night.  I have used them and within 1/2 hour of sleeping or lying in bed, it comes off.

Same thing happens to me. I just try to make sure i have a satin or something simliar to satin on my piillow.
 
I start off with a scarf on, but I certainly don't wake up with one on.

I sleep with a silk scarf on and after I tie it around my head, I insert a couple of bobby pins in around the areas around my ears (one in front of my ear and the other behind).  Just make sure you catch a little bit of hair in the pin and the scarf will stay on all night.

Wrap it from the back and tie it in front.
How long is your hair?

I can tie the scarf backwards and inside out, it won't be on when I wake up.

 
 Next time, I'll try the bobby pin technique. Thanks for the idea.Wink

First I pull my hair back into a ponytail, then I wrap the silk scarf around my hair and tie around the ponytail.  Once in place I put a few bobby pins in the front and maybe one or two in the back.  I then take the long strands of the scarf and wrap it around the pony tail a few times, once I am done with that, I add another scrunchy around the the ponytail tied in scarf.... it works for me.  When I travel I use a cotton bandana over the silk scarf and tie the scarf down with that.

I wrap my hair around my head. Cover with a silk or satin scarf, then cover that with a stocking cap. That works for me. :)

Satin pillow cases, If I do use a scarf I cover it with a cotton on that won't slide off or use a bonnet, they have the elastic around it that keeps the on.

I like a silk pillowcase, its more expensive but it last longer, my skin is sensitive and the natural fiber is more gentle against your skin. but anyway my hair needs to be contained while i sleep, I  use a silk bonnet there are some nice ones on the web.

Bobby pins sound like a great idea. That's what I usually do, but I need to remind myself to do it everynight.

If my hair is pulled back b/f I put on the scarf it wont always stay on during the night. If I realize it's come off, I dont put it back on, I just lay it as flat as I can on the pillow and lay on it like that. If I do pincurls though, it'll stay on all night.
