How to

Measure your head for the right size

Below illustration shows how to measure your head before making the purchase for the turban. 

Measure your head along the hair line from your forehead to ears and nape of the neck. You can include or exclude the ears depending on your personal preference.

How to - Wear the turban

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! ;)

How to choose the right turban size for your head

Damn Gina turbans come in two sizes - Medium and Large. There is an elastic at the back of the turban, making it adjustable for various head sizes. 

There is no elastic in the front of the turban.

The medium measures about 52 CMS relaxed and can stretch up to 56 CMS. This size works on most heads with a measurement of less than 56 CMS. 

The large turban measures 56 CMS relaxed and can stretch up to 60 CMS and fits most heads from 57 CMS to 60 CMS. 

The exceptions for the above measurements

If you have very long (below bra strap) and super thick hair OR hairstyles like box braids, dreadlocks, etc,. we recommend going for the large even for head sizes less than 56 CMS. This allows more room for your hair. 

Common questions

"The turban is too big for me - even though I measured my head"

We always ask you to measure your head before making the purchase. However, if you still feel the turban is too big for you - there can be a few reasons for it. 

  • You have fine hair that is not filling the extra fabric in the crown hair making the turban slip below. 
  • You have short hair
  • you may have a smaller forehead (our turbans don't have an elastic in the front as the elastics at the front can make it uncomfy)
  • you prefer a snug fit

Below are a few video links on how to make the turban work for you ;)

"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 is 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 get in touch with us at attention@damngina.com.au and we can help you further.

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.
