The Head Wrap

The head wrap probably has as many names as there are ways of tying it. Whether you call it a head wrap, turban, scarf or even gele (Nigeria) or doek (South Africa) the idea is the same. You cover your hair with a piece of fabric. There are different fabrics and ways to tie a head wrap all over the African continent as well as in the African diaspora. Wearing a head wrap is nothing new, but it became more mainstream in the late 1990’s thanks to African- American entertainers like Erykah Badu and India Arie. “The Head Wrap”
