What are the Different Durag types & their Benefits?

100% Polyester Durag:

Poly’s are the cheapest and affordable durags. While easy to get and pretty cheap they’re going to offer you the value that they cost.

Since they’re cheap, they’re going to offer you that level of quality and use which means they are not going to be able to get you the best waves. No, I wouldn’t write them off completely because they do have their place though.

They could easily be used for letting others see the progress of your transformation or let you continue to compress your hair as you go about your daily business.

Other than that I wouldn’t recommend trying to get waves with them for long term or at least upgrading to a better option if you’ve been using polyester.

Benefits of a Polyester Durag

  • Thinner material
  • Mesh and See through
  • Used for layering
  • Can be found anywhere
  • Cheapest (most cost effective)

Silky Satin Durag

Silky satin durags or silk durags for short are a blend of silky materials and satin materials. they are spun in a way that combines the material types and brings out a stronger quality durag.

This way you have both materials working together to create a rag that is higher quality and effective with a quality technique behind it!

Silky satins will be able to lay your waves down better than a poly durag and maintain their strength and compressive nature.

Benefits of a Silky Durag

  • Shinier durag
  • Lays hair down well
  • Great for style
  • Could add a wave cap on top
  • Keeps in hair moisture
  • Good compression
  • Stay in place 
  • Better than other durags for laying down waves
  • Breathable
  • Many different designs 

Velvet Durag

Velvets use a velvet (picture suede shoes, plush pillow, or velour jumpsuit) material on the outside and then use a satin material on the inside.

This allows velvet to have both that smooth satin texture so that it can lay waves at the same time as having a very fine luxurious exterior that is quality to look at.

How to choose a durag?

Buy one of each of the kinds. 😂 Just kidding.

If you’re looking for a Durag that is very useful and is going give you the waves you're looking for with your waves then you wanna look at silky satin durag.

These durags can be worn while you’re sleeping and generally maintain moisture and compression within your hair better than most other types of durags. 

With a silky durag you can get a designer or graphic design (example camouflage durag) on it, as well as a material that can get you waves better than any other material.

If you’re looking for something a little more stylish, fashionable, and trendy then velvet is what you’re looking for. Velvets offer a silky compression texture on the inside with ability to keep your waves compressed and have a fashionable look to them as well.

While silky satin is still very clean to see, it sometimes just can’t beat the shine and luster of a velvet or hologram.

Don’t worry as long as you start your wave journey or just want to be fashionable you can’t go wrong with either one!
