I’m a (non-American) whited dude. I grew up playing basketball where I’ve played with players from the states wearing durags. I’ve lived in the states but in mostly white areas so hiphop culture wasn’t as much present there. I always thought that durags were just a fashion statement but I recently watched videos of black people taking care of their hair and I realized how different their hair is compared to mine. This lead me to thinking there might be more into durags, but I have no idea what it could be. So do they serve a purpose or are they just apparel? Thank you for your help.
