Fabric Guide For Head Wraps and Turbans

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN HEAD WRAP AND TURBAN FABRICS?

Dutch Wax Cotton (AKA African/Ankara print) is a firm light cotton fabric, which means it doesn't offer a lot of stretch. However, it does offer more shape/form. This material is great to wear year round, but can offer more comfort due to the weight in warmer climates. Only our classic turbans and headbands are made from Dutch Wax Cotton fabrics. 

Our stretch cotton head wraps and turbans are crafted from a blend of high quality cotton that's been woven with lycra. This material can offer more comfort to those who don't like the firm nature of Dutch wax cotton. Our front knot head wrap turbans and classic turbans are usually made from our stretchy fabrics. 

All of our turbans and head wraps are lined in our signature satin to cocoon the hair, helping to prevent frizz, moisture loss and breakage. 

WHAT SIZE TURBAN HEAD WRAP SHOULD I ORDER? 

We offer various sizes on our Dutch Wax African Print Head Wraps due to the lack of stretch in this type of material. You should select your Dutch Wax Cotton head wrap size based on your fit preferences (tighter vs looser), head circumference, and volume of hair. 

Most customers do NOT require a size M/L. The S/M size is the recommended size for Dutch Wax Turbans. 

Fit Example: If your head measures 22" and you have shoulder length curly hair that you want to wear completely tucked into your turban, a size M/L may offer you the best fit.
