how to

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.

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 ;)

I know you appreciate this! ;)


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 and we have recently added a drawstring making it really easy to adjust as per your comfort.

There is no elastic in the front of the turban.

The medium measures about 51 CMS relaxed and can stretch up to 57 CMS. This size works on most heads with a measurement of 52 CMS to 57 CMS. 

The large turban measures 56 CMS relaxed and can stretch up to 61 CMS and fits most heads from 58 CMS to 61 CMS. 

The exceptions for the above measurements

If you have very long (below bra strap) hair, thick hair OR hairstyles like box braids, dreadlocks, etc., we recommend going for the large even for head sizes less than 57 CMS. This allows more room for your hair and you can adjust the sizing around the head with the drawstrings.  


common question

"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, and we can help you further.
