It is important that you consider the type of material used to make the durag. The most common materials are silk, velvet, satin and knit. Each of these has advantages and disadvantages. You need to consider how comfortable you will be wearing it. Be sure to consider breathability when making your choice. Remember, your scalp and hair need to stay fresh. If the air doesn't reach the scalp, it can leave your hair rough and smelly.
Another factor to consider when choosing a durag is budget. Different brands are available at different prices. The cost is determined by the style, size and material used. Compare prices on our store to choose the one you can afford. Choose a style that fits your personality.

Benefits of wearing our durags
We will show you what the main advantages of durags are and especially why you should choose one from our store right now!
1. To maintain the 360 Waves
This is THE most well-known reason why people love to wear our durags! These uniquely crafted fabrics allow your hair to flatten out and most importantly maintain a wavy cut that goes around the scalp. Human hair, by nature, grows outward. All this can lead to messy hair that is difficult to maintain. Durags are the unique solution to this problem.
Our Durags provide compression, forcing hair to flatten against your head, and preventing frizz. Wearing a durag regularly can force your hair to grow flat and help you maintain the waves in your beloved hair.
2. To improve hair quality
Durags go a long way in improving hair quality. If you have dry frizzy hair, wearing a durag to bed can help you control frizz naturally, and without using harmful products! Wearing the durag at night will keep your hair from rubbing the sheets and your pillow, and will prevent your hair from getting brittle and frizzy.
Also, thanks to the durag, the oil that you will have applied on your hair will be able to maintain itself without being dispersed everywhere on the sheets, and supports healthy and brilliant hair.
3. To straighten rough hair
Durags can be worn by those with coarse hair texture who want straight, neat hair. While many people opt for chemical treatments to straighten their hair, regularly straightening with chemicals can permanently damage the hair, making it brittle and prone to breakage.
Wearing a durag is a simple way to straighten your hair naturally without damaging it with heat or chemicals. Simply apply a moisturizing oil and secure your durag for smooth, shiny, well-groomed hair that looks both professional and stylish.
4. To maintain the braids
Wearing your hair in plaits has as of late become a famous haircut among people, and then some and more individuals are deciding to wear their hair in twists nowadays.
In fact, we have many durags for women!
However, most of these people face a common problem: loose hair escapes from their braids while they sleep and ruins the sleek, neat look they are going for.
Friction during sleep can make braids look messy, and wearing a durag also helps solve this problem. It prevents loose hair from escaping from braids and keeps your hair looking neat and shiny for much longer. It keeps your hair in place and keeps you looking your best.
5. To absorb sweat
Wearing a durag can be useful, particularly for the individuals who live in hotter environments. In the summer, when temperatures start to rise and sweating is a problem, durag helps absorb sweat from the scalp and keep you cool.
It allows sweat to evaporate easily and prevents it from getting into the eyes, which also helps prevent any type of eye irritation.
6. To protect yourself from the sun and pollution
Yes, this is one of the biggest problems. UV radiation and pollution damage hair, so wearing a durag also prevents this. These two factors can make your hair weak and brittle and cause split ends.
Our durags are made to prevent your beautiful hair from coming in contact with outside dust, pollution and anything else that could damage your hair.
This way you avoid compensating for it with various unreliable chemicals that can sometimes make the situation even worse.
How to wear the durag ?
So we've been talking a lot about du-rags and how they can benefit you. How to tie a du-rag remains a question. There are many ways to wear a du-rag, as there are different uses and patterns. So here are some techniques you can use to wear it properly
There are several models with different textures, but we advise you to wear the ones that are more stretchy because they are breathable even if they are well tied around the head.
Place the durag on your head Align the center of the durag with the center of your head for proper symmetry. To ensure that the hairline is completely covered, place the durag so that the front edge is just between the hairline and the eyebrow. The tabs should extend beyond the durag.
To wrap the ties behind your head, do the following Hold both ties with your hands and pull the ties so that they cross each other, but do not let them go up over your head. Pull both ties back and they should rest between the head and the ear. Wrap the ties around the back of the head
After crossing the ties at the back of the head, pull them back to the front of the head. Make sure the cross is in the center of the forehead. Pull them to the back of the head again. You can smooth them out at this point if you want to lay them flat. Don't pull them too hard, as this can give you a headache.
Tie the knots at the back of the head, but don't tie them too tightly because you'll have trouble untying them later.
Pull the flap that hangs around your neck. Pull it and try to touch your back with it, as this will tighten the durag and ensure good compression of the hair, but do not pull too hard.
In this last step, fold the flap as desired. Tuck or tie the flap to prevent it from turning in Another option is to tie it with knots if the flap is too long, but this will create small bumps where the knots are made.
Attaching the Du-Rag before going to bed
This method is used to get the right 360 degree curves and the steps you need to follow are:
Hold the durag and turn it over so the seam is on the outside. This ensures that the seam does not leave an impression behind. Place the durag so that the lines are in the center of the face.
Hold a tail in each hand and wrap them around the back of the head. The tails should cross the back of the head. Pull them around the head and make sure they cross the forehead before wrapping them around the back. Do not tie them as this will leave lines on the forehead. Twist the ties together to make sure they stay in place for a while.
Use a soft headband that is elastic, but not too tight for overnight wear. Tuck the durag under the headband. You can tie the durag without the headband, but this technique will leave lines on the face and will not be very comfortable.
After inserting the durag into the headband, gently pull the ties apart. Once they are free and not wrapped around your head, put them back in the headband to prevent them from becoming tangled while you sleep. If the ties stay wrapped overnight, they can leave lines on your forehead, so be sure to unwrap them.
Replace the flap in the headband, this will prevent the durag from coming off the headband. Roll up the flap and stuff it inside the headband or tuck it into the headband.
Hopefully you have now learned how to wear a durag. It has many advantages and not all the people who wear it are criminals or gang related. We think the authorities should take note and lift all sorts of bans on the durag. After all, it is up to the individual to choose what to wear.
