What Is a Doobie Hairstyle?

The doobie is a method of hair wrapping that is used to flatten, dry and smooth out textured hair before styling. Traditionally, women of Caribbean and African decent fashion this technique.

The doobie is achieved by wrapping damp or nearly dry sections of hair around the head, which can be done in a variety of ways depending on the texture of the hair, and is secured with hairpins. Many women will fashion a doobie before going to sleep to ensure the hair time to flatten properly, and some women choose to wrap the hairdo with a scarf to keep the pinned hair intact overnight.
