    Default The new hair secret is the DOOBIE.

    My grandma is in her 80s and has the longest hair in the family thanks to her doobie. Some people may call it a wrap, but to my family, it is known as the doobie. Doesn't that sound epic? haha. what you do is, you wrap your hair around your head and secure it. It can be secured with bobby pins and gel or after you shower, and it has a headband or bandanna protect it. I've been doing it after showers and keeping it up with aloe vera gel. My hair comes out so soft when it dries in the doobie and it stays safe from the cold. I even wore a knit hat over my doobie today and sported it all day in public. It may have been odd to do, but hey, it was gross outside, and I am not risking bad hair for it. The doobie seems to hold my hair's oils and distributes it evenly. Its probably even better for longer hair since it's old. My hair is short and the doobie can still be done. Length is not a problem. Try it out and let me know how you feel. Maybe we can make it a doobie challenge =]

    UPDATE [1.18.11]

    Hmmm...in my area a doobie is something totally different...what you're describing would be called a do-rag in my area, or just a headscarf.

    Do you wrap it up in a bandana or something?

    Yes indeed!! It's amazing how many slang words are used world-wide....but with different meanings.

    I am curious though - can you post some pictures?

    All of my Puerto Rican relatives call it a doobie. i might have explained it a tad off but you can definitely see pictures of what i'm refering to on my tumblr.

    i decided to take up my mom and grandma's advice while i nurse my hair back to health. The wrap is the hair itself. You can just cover it with a bandanna to look less manish and to hold in body heat. By time I am done with my doobie I look like a boy, which is the only offside haha. I'd rather wear a bandanna and look like a housekeeper any day. XD

    So kind of like a do-rag or tichel? I do that too, whenever I'm oiling my hair or when I'm cleaning the house or working in the garden when I don't want dust/dirt attaching itself to my hair. It's nice to be able to go out of the house & look presentable while oiling or deep conditioning my hair too.

    This, and it wouldn't be the first time I'd heard that it makes hair grow faster either.

    In Hebrew, a doobie is a pretty gross thing - it's a piece of dried snot ;-)

    Excuse me for grossing you out but it's a children's word and it also means 'little bear'.

    A doobie, as far as I know, is just another name for a wrap. I remember back in maybe '95 when my cousin discovered it and tried to talk me into letting her do that to my head. From what I remember, it's the best way to get home from the salon with freshly straightened hair on windy days.
