Headwrap Tutorials, Tips and Tricks
Get Creative with Your Wraps
Use scarves, buy pretty fabric, think outside of the box, and have fun. The thing to remember is that the wrap is a fashion accessory and should be styled accordingly.
Moisturize Your Hair
Rocking a wrap all day is basically like a protective style in that your hair can get a little rest and enjoy a little moisturizing too! You can treat your scalp with our Jamaican Black Castor Oil Scalp Soothing Ointment and also use your favorite oil to moisturize your ends before you wrap.
Make It Simple
Your first turban doesn’t need to be intricate or elaborate. Start with a basic tutorial so you can get the hang of it.
Wear It Whether Your Hair is Short or Long
Wrapping works for hair of all lengths and textures. Whether you have a TWA or long flowy locks, you can rock a turban.
Protect Your Locks
Depending on what type of scarf you go with, the material, if worn directly against your hair, can suck out moisture and cause damage. Make sure you use a satin cap or scarf beneath your wrap to cover and protect your hair from the material of the scarf.
