For a while I was fearful of turbans. They looked totally intimidating, heavy, and for some reason I convinced myself that the only way to wear one was if you purchased a vintage “slip on” turban. Not at all the case! Creating my own turban was fairly easy and quick. And not at all heavy. Since I have natural hair, wearing a turban once in a while is a good way to protect my hair from heat or damage. And for my friends without natural hair, wearing a turban is just a chic and funky trend they are into. No matter what your story is, a turban can become your own in a really inexpensive and easy way.
All you need is a pashmina scarf. Here in the city, you’ll find one on every corner for around $5, and I am sure where you are they are available at your local mall, and of course they are always available online.
For those who are interested in trying, here are 5 easy steps to creating a turban with a pashmina scarf!
