Why do people wear...

du rags? I never understood that. The other one is that I see a lot of people on television that wear white tees constantly. I always chucked that up to it cost less.
Any one got an answer? feel free to give an answer.

Du rags are helpful to get you some waves in your hair. I guess its just a fashion thing in the inner cities. White tees, again a fashion thing people just feel comfortable wearing and then both got popularized by rappers. So yeah.. if that helps

Never understood how, either, but it works. Du rags are just wave caps that you have to tie, rather than just slip on. As to why people who don't have wave ot even the kind of hair to get waves, like Raul said, it's just fashion.

Ok, I got the answer from wikipedia.

It isn't the du rag that does it. The du rag is used to protect the hair.

African-American men use do-rags to maintain the natural wave patterns in their hair. After intense brushing, an oil sheen or grease is usually applied to the hair which is then wrapped in a do-rag overnight to prevent the waves from becoming tangled...especially if hair is long.



My other question is why do people call other people red.

When I lived it Texas, I saw Du rags all over the place - white and black alike... mostly used during the hot summer months for a lot of wm to keep the sweat from pouring into your eyes while working out or working outside while its 110 degrees. Never liked them , but it looks even worse when a white dude is wearing all those colorful du rags. The texas flag was of-course on of the most popular ones they wore


Here in CA, I wanna know why people wear Uggs in the summer?

Or how about people on planes wearing pajama bottoms??
WTF?

Oh, and starched jeans w creases in them you can cut meat with????? - Oh, that was in Texas, LOL

Makes sense. I never wanted waves, so I never knew exactly how it worked.

I call them Ugg-lys. Those shoe things look like shit.


When I was in high school, hella girls wore pajamas. It was the trend. They had "pajama day" during those school spirit weeks but they didn't need one. It was pajama day for girls every day. They literally wore the shit right outta bed. Pajama bottoms, slippers, hoody and a ponytail.
