measure your head for the right size
The below illustration shows how to measure your head before purchasing the turban.
Measure your head along the hairline from your forehead to ears and nape of the neck. You can include or exclude the ears depending on your personal preference.
how to - wear the turban
We could write lengthy notes, step by step guides that you may never read, illustrations of someone with perfect curls (there is nothing called "Perfect curls")
or we could just leave a link to our Youtube of "How-to" so you get an idea ;)
We also have a highlights section on our Instagram on how-to wear the turban.
how to choose the right turban size for your head
Damn Gina turbans come in two sizes - Medium and Large. There is elastic at the back of the turban, making it adjustable for various head sizes.
There is no elastic in the front of the turban.
The medium measures about 20 inches relaxed and can stretch up to 22.5 inches. This size works on most heads with a measurement of 20 to 22.5 inch.
The large turban measures 22.5 inches relaxed and can stretch up to 24.5 inches and fits most heads from 22.5 to 24.5 inches.
The exceptions for the above measurements
If you have very long (below bra strap) and super thick hair OR hairstyles like box braids, dreadlocks, etc., we recommend going for the large even for head sizes less than 22.5 Inches. This allows more room for your hair.
"the turban is too big for me - even though I measured my head."
We always ask you to measure your head before making the purchase. However, if you still feel the turban is too big for you - there can be a few reasons for it.
- You have fine hair that is not filling the extra fabric in the crown hair, making the turban slip below.
- You have short hair
- you may have a smaller forehead (our turbans don't have an elastic in the front as the elastics at the front can make it uncomfy)
- you prefer a snug fit
Below are a few video links on how to make the turban work for you ;)
"my crown area is flat after removing the turban."
This can happen as soon as you remove the turban and is temporary. We suggest you let your hair fall naturally for the first 10 minutes and then flip your head in front and give a good shake at the roots. This usually helps with the volume.
Another reason the crown flattens is when you have short or fine hair, and the fabric weighs on your crown, making it flat. We suggest making multiple small sections of your hair and tying them in loose knots all over - similar to knots before popping the turban on. This helps with keeping the volume for short and fine hair.
Please note: This is just a recommendation. The final decision is solely yours. If you still have questions, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can help you further.
