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.

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! ;)

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, 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 fewer 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 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 attention@damngina.com.au, and we can help you further.

signature silk hair turban™

A revelation

I can usually only wear my hair down for the first day after washing, after a night's sleep it is usually too matted and tables to tame. Once I started wearing this luscious turban to bed, I was able to wear my hair loose for several days, and in a bouncy, shiny ponytail for a few more!
I have wavy heavily bleached hair, and this worked perfectly for me, give it a go!

Amazing!

I don’t have curly hair but I absolutely love this turban, gets all my hair away from my face for sleep and I wake up with way less knots. Can’t go to bed without wearing it now!

Beautiful hat

This is the 2nd hat I’ve bought as I love the feel and how fashionable the hat looks. Doesn’t mess up my hair and can fold the hat up.

damn good silk pillowcase

Exactly what I was after

Exactly what I was after, pillows fit in easily & there's a large fold over lip so it won't slip out.

Turban

Turban is comfy to wear but is too big and I ordered the medium. I think a smaller size needs to be on offer, so it slips around a lot on my head when I’m asleep. I’m not sure if it’s made much difference to keep my hair frizz free but I will continue to use in the hope I will see some results
