There is a distinct art to wearing a durag and maintaining your perfect 360 waves!
Watch the video at the end of this post to get A$AP Ferg’s expert advice on how to tie a durag.
Check out the steps below
Step One: Turn the durag inside out so that the centre stitching is facing up on the outside of the durag.The reason for this is you do not want an imprint line on your hair waves!
Step Two: Place the durag on your head just like you would wear a hood, and allow the flaps to hang along your neck lying flat and the front of your durag should rest just above your eyebrows.
Step Three: Take one string in each hand and wrap them around together at the back of your head, keep it tight enough so it won’t fall off as you sleep, but not where it’ll give you a headache, Durag Discomfort is a thing!
Step Four: Take one string in each hand and cross them at your forehead so they return to the back of your head on the opposite side. Keep sure that they lie flat to avoid wrinkles and creases
Step Five: Tie the strings at the back of your head into a knot. Straighten the fabric so that’s pulled tight. And remember: STICK TO SILKY DURAGS!
