FAQ

What are yours accessories made of?

All the Damn Gina accessories are made using natural 100% mulberry silk fabric and the weave is satin - making it the softest, most luxurious fabric. Our silk turbans are made of organic cotton jersey top layer to give it a chic shape and to minimise the slip when turning and tossing in bed. The dyes are non toxic and our ivory range is a non dyed, natural silk fabric.
Please note the colours may look different depending on your device and screen.
The products are made is India.

What does momme mean? How do I know your quality is better than others? 

Momme is the Japanese weight measurement unit and is used to measure the density of silk fabrics. Higher the momme number, better and thicker the quality of silk. For example, a silk fabric that is 30.48 meters long (100 feet) and 1.1 meter wide weighed 12.2 kg (27 lbs) then it is considered as 27 momme. Higher the momme, more luxurious and expensive the silk is. 

Are your products silk or satin?

Trick question! Satin is not a type of fabric. Satin is a type of weave. Silk is a type of fabric that can have a satin weave. The common misconception when someone hears satin is - it must be cheap and this is because polyester fabric with satin weave is shortened as satin. In reality, both silk and poly can have a satin weave. Damn Gina products are 100% natural silk products with a satin finish. 

Product finish and colours

Damn Gina products are produced in small quantities using the natural silk fabric that is partially woven manually. The colours may differ slightly then the photos and the fabric finish is unique to each and that is a part of the charm. 

Ethical and Social Responsibility

Damn Gina works with a third generation traditional silk making family in India. We work with only natural fibres and do not use any synthetic fibres. All our products are bio-degradable and has a low carbon footprint. Our packaging is minimal and plastic free on purpose. 

Our silk weavers and garment makers are paid above average wages and are permanent staff of the manufacturing unit- and not just hourly wage workers. This ensures they are paid right, have the employee sponsored insurance - in this case (ESI- employee state insurance which is 13% of their salary paid by the employer), a monthly report gets sent to the authorities on the working conditions and safety of these employees. The workers whom we address as artisans as working with silk is now a dying art also have PF(provident fund) that is compulsory and goes towards their retirement - is paid by the employer and that is 12% of their monthly salary. 

Every employee gets a yearly bonus during Deepavali (Indian festival of lights) 

The silk is natural, mulberry silk and is not vegan.

Pre-Orders

As a young brand, some of our new colours or sizes first go on pre-order to gauge the interest before production and shipping. This allows us to manufacture what is required and produce less wastage. Our products come from India. 

If you have ordered something that says pre-order, please note the time-line mentioned in the description. We aim to ship everything on or before the mentioned date - but sometimes when things are beyond our control (COVID, lockdowns etc,. there can be a slight delay) and we keep you updated regarding the same!

If you order multiples and one of them is a pre-order, note that we send all of them together including the in stock product. If you want something urgently and it is not a pre-order product, we suggest you put in seperate orders. 

 

How to care for Damn Gina products?

Silk is a luxurious delicate fabric (this is what makes it so good for skin and hair). In order to make them last longer, we recommend you using cold water to wash silk inside out by hand.

Use a mild detergent (even your shampoo will do) swish in cold water and flat dry it. Note that it is a natural fabric and does not hold on to smells. Silk is also naturally anti-fungal and anti bacterial making it easy to clean. You can dry clean your silk products too. 
Do not bleach. Do not use hot water. Iron - inside out at a low setting. 

The colours are vibrant and rich and can sometimes run. Please wash coloured products separately.

Breakage buster

Man, I’m only 3 weeks in and this might be the best $60 I’ve ever spent on hair care.

I’ve been a platinum scalp bleach for about 14 years and maintenance is a full time job. In the last two years I’ve had breakage issues around my temples so persistent that no shag hair cut was helping, a new approach was required.

In just three weeks it’s astounding what a difference this silk turban has made. My hair drop while shampooing has reduced by maybe 80% to a level I haven’t seen since I was 18. The texture in the lengths is mind-blowingly silky for this level of peroxide damage, it should be illegal.

As for the product itself, I ordered a large as I know I wear a 59 hat, and tbh it might be a bit too generous. It doubles as eyeshades but if I had mermaid length hair it would fit perfectly. That said, I would be hesitant order smaller as I could easily wake up with fold marks on my forehead if there was any tension. I have not had any issue with it sliding off while I sleep, so it just looks a little dorky with the sagging in the back.

Just as a final note, I have a very elaborate product routine tweaked over years of worshipping at the alter of blonde. I’m not saying this alone can fix all your unique hair problems. But for me, not since Olaplex hit the market have I met such a game changer for protection bleach damaged hair. It’s definitely worth a try to manage split ends and mid length breakage and hopefully you will be as amazed as I am.

Long time curly girl

Works really well on my very thick curly hair !

beautiful silk

The silk is beautiful and soft for my curls, definitely helps hair last longer between washes <3 The sizing is quite generous though so next time I will get the smaller size.

Snug

Very snug, keeps my head warm and my hair smooth! Love it :) although It is a bit loose for me and slips off when I roll around in my sleep

Cozy little gem

The silk turban does everything it’s supposed to and more! My hair has not been healthier! very comfortable even while sleeping.
