silk-lined bucket hat - wide brim
Kathryn (Melbourne, AU)

The har fits really well, and the drawsting helps it not blow off my head in the wind. Great for keeping the sun off. Only downside was the shipping, I had to get it redelivered though AusPost because the couriers couldn't deliver it

So comfy and practical!

I got one as I needed a hat, but never liked wearing them as my curly hair wouldn’t work with it. Since I’ve used this, I actually can be sun safe again! Love love love it!!!

2.0 is a winner

I had a damn Gina head wrap before, which was good but purchased a new one. I love the adjustable draw strings, it helps it stay on during the night.

My curls stay in tact finally! I have slept with a silk pillowcase for about 2 years now but this is another game changer! My curls stay in tact for the whole week!

Happy Blooms bucket hat - large

I bought the Happy Blooms bucket hat in size large between Christmas and New Year. Shipping took a long time - even for that time of year - but that is likely outside of Damn Gina's control. The hat arrived and is great quality. Sizing-wise, I had measured the circumference of my head and it fell at the lower end of the large size and upper end of the medium size. I went for large because I normally find hats too small for me. Unfortunately it is too big, and has no chance of staying on even with a little wind. The drawstring is a good touch and would be effective if the hat was smaller on my head. Damn Gina were quick to respond when I made a return request, but the cost to return (from NZ) was too expensive to exchange for the smaller size accounting for original cost of shipping, restocking fee, and cost of shipping the replacement.

Wish we could have sized it better. Didnt fit well so gave it away

Colour is too much for me

I tried to like the hat, but the Hawaiian blue colour doesn’t suit me. The hat is also very large on my small head. Well made, but just too big all round for a petite person with short hair.

Wish it was bigger

I have shoulder length hair but quite a lot of it. I ordered the large size and was really looking forward to using the silk wrap. I have used the wrap 10 times till now and it inevitably slips at night. 4/10 times it has just come off my head completely. It’s pretty great the nights it stays on. I wish there was a bigger size in hair wrap.

Soft and Cool

This is the best hat. I love the feel, the shape, the way you can shape the brim. I would contemplate another colour, but my always stylish black does the job so well I don’t need another

Best hat ever

I am constantly buying hats…but this is this best. Easy to travel with, stays on my head whilst on a bike or a windy beach…. And oh so soft and pretty. Plus, the company is ethical ❤️

Measured a 67cm head circumference, so bought the medium. Good size, not too tight. I have medium length, thin hair, so if longer or thicker, definitely size up as it does not have a lot of room at the top.

Large, comfy and wind proof !

I have trouble buying hats big enough, this was perfect, heaps of shady protection, comfortable and light, no hat hair !! On the beach with a fierce wind, the adjustable tie holds it tight without changing the shape.

Turban convert

I saw my niece who has long ringlet style curly hair wearing a sleeping turban and wondered if it might work for my wavy hair. I read the reviews then decided to give it a try. So happy I did. I don’t wake up with my hair sticking up in ‘horns’. I have just past shoulder length slightly curly hair. I chose medium and it fits well. Maybe if my hair was past my bra strap I might struggle to get it in. I have worn it a few times now (still getting into the habit) and once it came off but not till the very morning when I started tossing around. I find it comfortable and have not had any issues with seams or ties making it uncomfortable that some other reviewers mention. It is also cooler to sleep in on a hot night which I was not expecting. I am thinking of getting my mum one as she has the same issues with ‘horns’ in her hair in the morning - must be hereditary!

Frizz Free and Fantastic

Waking up to hair that doesn't look like road kill on my head is an absolute joy.
I Love the turbans, the hats look incredible on, are amazing to wear and the spray is brilliant along with the shine it gives my hair. Customer service is 5 star. Happy head. happy customer.

Absolutely fabulous hat

I love wearing hats for sun protection but hate the hair mess when they come off. I have tried quite a few hats - felt, canvas, cotton and straw but this was my first silk one. So far I am impressed with lack of helmet head which is usually a given with other hats. I usually resign myself to the fact that I will have to scrape my hair back into a pony once it comes off. So big tick for that. Size is good (I measured my head and check the recommendation) and the drawstrings will help on a mildly windy day. (For those complaining it not staying on there is only one hat style that really stays put on very windy days - or on a boat at sea! - and in has a wind cord that goes under your chin and the back of your head - it is not very attractive but is practical for bird and whale watching!) I was a tad concerned about wearing it on a hot day as it does seem rather thick but I was pleasantly surprised. Like another reviewer commented although I sweated a little (as you do with ANY hat on a hot day) my hair still looked okay when I took it off. And lastly I LOVE the wide brim. I did look at these hats when they only had the narrow brim and did not purchase for that very reason. It is a good idea though to have both options for those who want the hat for fashion more than sun protection - I love having both though!

Lovely but not big enough

I love these hair wraps, my hair definitely stays curlier and fresher for longer. But I have a 60-61cm head plus a lot of thick hair - the wrap struggles to stay on comfortably over night.

Great product! I will be keeping an eye out for other colours

cannot sleep without it!!

i have just purchased my second one as i have a hard time sleeping without mine while i wash/dry it. i have long, thick, wavy hair that i’ve always had to braid to avoid pulling on as i toss and turn in my sleep, and then i’d wake up with frizzy, hard to manage hair.
BUT NOW my hair has become so hassle free - in the morning i shake it out and am on my way. at night i put oil on the ends and give it a comb through and thats the extent of my routine! i have been using it every night for 3 months now and my hairdresser confirmed it’s healthier than ever!!
The trick with getting it to stay on all night - and i toss and turn - is to roll your hair up against the back of your head and pull the turban on from the back towards your forehead. i pin my fringe in place, but it’s easy to tuck the front bits in once the bulk of your hair is in. then tie the strings in a tight bow and wiggle the sides up your ears until they’re comfortable.
i sincerely thank this brand for all the time they save me every morning and for my amazing hair.

Dislike. I’ll be returning the hat.

This is a beautiful hat but not for me

I have ordered the Large Lavender hat! It is beautiful but it is way to big for me and I look like Strawberry Short Cake from circa 2003.

Love its range, it keeps the sun week clear of my face without giving me hat hair

A delightful hat

I adore this hat! While I did sweat a little (I am only slightly less hairy than Chewbacca) my hair still looked glorious when I took it off. The brim was wide enough to keep the sun off my face, and for my 16 month old niece to play a lovely game of peek-a-boo with me.

Love

To be honest, I mostly got these so I then got free shipping, but I’m so glad I did! They look a bit funny when you’re just holding them, but in your hair look gorgeous. They stay in place so well even during high intensity exercise and I don’t think I can go back to normal scrunchies after these! Love the mustard colour but planning on getting some other colours soon just because I use them so much!

Love!

Really love the turban, have considered getting one for ages but finally bit the bullet. Still finding the best way to twist my hair up, but the turban stays in place. Has greatly reduced my hair breakage and held my curls/waves better. I move a lot in my sleep, so on particularly tossy nights it does start to come off, but on a regular night stays in place!

Love This! But...

Okay, so this turban is awesome! It doesn't fall off during the night which is great and my hair looks amazing. My only criticism is that I bought a Large because of some of the feedback I saw and while I have a small head, it is TIGHT on me. If my hair was any longer than it is now (it's at my collarbones) I don't think I could fit it in. I've also washed it once per the instructions and I swear it has shrunk as it was a battle to get my head into it.

Sizing is.. weird. In the photos it looks like there's so much room at the top but mine simply doesn't have that and I don't have very thick hair or anything. But it has kept my hair looking great which is good!
