How to Put on a Durag

Putting on a durag can be difficult for new wearers, but with some practice it becomes easy. A durag is a fashion accessory that has its origins in African-American culture and is now worn around the world as a stylish piece of headgear. This article will provide step-by-step instructions on how to put on a durag, and also include some tips for keeping your durag in good shape.

To begin, take the two opposite ends of your durag and fold them together to create a triangle. This will help it fit better on your head and ensure that the flap doesn’t leave any lines behind when you’re finished.

Once the triangle is formed, cross the strings over each other behind your head and bring them around to the front. It’s best to use a mirror for this, but once you get the hang of it, it will be as simple as tying your shoes.

After the ties are crossed in front, pull them back to the center of your forehead and flatten them. You can then use the remaining strings to tie a bow in the back of your head, just like you would do with a hairband.

Once the bow is tied, you can slide the durag on your head and finish up with any tying or knotting that needs to be done. The most important thing is to keep it tight, but not too tight so that it can’t move around and cause discomfort.
