For the basic typing of a durag, start by turning the durag inside out so the middle seam is pointed on the outer part of the durag. Next, put the durag on your head like a hood, just above your eyebrows, with the straps hanging from each side. After that, take one strap in each hand and tie them behind your head, tight enough to keep the hair comfortably compressed. Then, take one strap in each hand again and cross them flatly around your forehead so that they wrap around your head on the opposite side. Finally, tie the straps at the back of your head again into a knot. Straighten the durag so that it is pulled tight and clean. Ta-da! You just tied a basic durag.
