The velvet durag has gained popularity with the return of the durag to the forefront. While the classic durag was normally made from a satin blend, we have seen the emergence of durags that incorporate velvet materials on the outside of the durag and have a satin lining on the inside. The velvet gives these durags a unique luxurious look, while keeping the head warmer during the colder times of the year like fall/winter or even mid-season.
Velvet has the advantage of being a material full of finesse and relief. It is a prestigious and well known material synonymous with good wear, as well as cashmere for example. A velvet durag allows you to hold your hair more easily than a bandana, a turban, a headband or a scarf for example.
Among our collection of velvet durags, you can find a wide range of products including durags in :
Blue velvet (navy blue, sky blue, dark blue, turquoise...)
Pink Velvet (light pink, fuchsia, old pink...)
Green velvet (khaki, fluo...)
And many other colors among beige, brown, purple, gold, silver and even multicolor!
How to make waves with a velvet durag ?
Durags themselves are not meant to make waves. Instead, they are used to protect hair while it sleeps and to keep it in a certain state while it grows. That said, velvet durags are perfect for waves. While the outside is velvet, the inside of the durag is satin. Velvet offers better compression than traditional durags, and is able to create more beautiful waves.
Traditionally, durags were made from satin. Satin is a breathable weave that usually has a matte back and a glossy surface. Although satin is an excellent material, it can be easily damaged if not cared for properly. Velvet durags are more durable than satin durags. They often look better because of their velvet exterior. Satin is always lined on the inside with a velvet durag, making it perfect for hair!
How to wash velvet durags?
You should always wash your durags by hand. Hand washing allows you to thoroughly clean your durag. Here's how to properly wash a velour durag:
Find a mild detergent
Place the durag under warm water
Add a little detergent on the durag
Start rubbing the durag lightly to allow the suds to build up
As the water runs over the durag, you should see darker water appear on the other side
Continue to wash and scrub until the water on the other side is clear
Once the water is clear and all the detergent is gone, hang the durag to dry.
If you ever wash your durag in a washing machine (but we don't recommend it), use a very light wash cycle. We also recommend that you always air dry your durag.
