To help you take good care of turbans and head wraps, here are some care tips to help you keep them in good condition for a long time.

If you have a particularly delicate head covering then it is probably a good idea to hand wash it instead of using a washing machine. Make use of cold water and a mild liquid wash or detergent to wash your head wraps and turbans. Wash the fabric gently in the soapy solution. Once you’re done, either you gently squeeze it to dry or roll it in a towel to remove excess moisture and allow it to air-dry on a rack dryer. This way, your head wears won’t suffer any heat damage or lose any embellishment. Your head wears will also be in good condition for a long time.

You wouldn’t want this to happen, so make sure you allow your head wears to air-dry or hang them to dry.

Luckily you can easily fix this by using a lint roller to remove hairs and link from your pre-tied turbans and head wraps. Well, if you don’t have a lint roller at your disposal you can make use of a cello tape! So, how can you go about this? Just wrap cello tape around your fingers. Ensure the sticky side of the tape isn’t faced towards your fingers. There you have it; you’ve just made your own lint remover!

Just make sure you check the label of the head wrap your headscarf label to ensure it is ok to use heat. You can also iron cotton head wraps if wrinkled. However, you should avoid iron pressing velvet turbans or head wraps.
