DIY: Turban With African Fabric

I’ve had on my kinky braids since Christmas **sigh** ….it’s sad abi?? I know….but it’s still nice just that my front hair is slowly becoming extinct!!!looool!!

…so I cut one of my Ankara maxi skirts and I decided to use the bottom part for a  turban

The turban look has been around for a while now but  I still don’t see Nigerian people do it as often 😦

Wanna try it out?…it’s totally easy!!!

 

When doing this it’s preferable to use a large scarf or better yet just buy fabric from the market ( one and a half yards is enough )

 

HOW TO:

STEP  1

You can leave your hair down but if you want to,  plait it and fold it in.

tip: to add more volume, tie a scarf before tying the turban especially if you’re on gorimapa  (shaved hair)  and also to avoid the scarf from slipping off

STEP  2

Place the scarf at the back of head and make sure the two ends are equal

STEP 3

Tie a knot in front and make sure its tight

STEP  4

Twist……

 

 

STEP 5

Start rolling it into the shape you want and tuck the ends in

VOILA!!!ur done 😀

…..i tried tying it another way
