Men and Women show how they tie their turbans, all demostrated with youtubes. The traditional methods are demostrated as well, as a newer unisex turban and shorter, faster, easier method. It is called Kundawrap . This is the one I wear.
This style originated from the western Sikh communities in America. Most western Sikh women who become a Sikh wear a turban (whether or not they are Amritdhari). This is a common style which is worn. Usually it is at least two layers. One layer of turban fabric and then a white chuni at the final "finished" layer.
This is a common turban style worn in Punjab, India. It is basically a double wide turban. 6 meters of turban cloth are cut in half (two - three meter pieces) and then sewn together on long edge to make it "Double wide". This makes for a larger turban with fewer wraps around the head.

The difficulty with tying a Damala is usually in getting the shape right. It may take a good 5-10 tries of practice tying to get the right shape.
Karma is Newton's third law. Buddha got enlightened with Newton's third law. Every action has a reaction, equal and opposite.
This is a quick casual turban that you might tie if you are around the house or exercising. For some women they tie this one when they get up early in the morning for their Sadhana (banis/meditation,etc). The turban shown in this video is about 3 meters long.
Available in natural white, the hemp/cotton Kundawrap can be purchased in hand-dyed tantric blue and yogic orange. The edges are surged all around and it is washable, extremely comfortable, getting softer with each washing. Your Kundawrap will keep its shape; offering an alternative to buying cut lengths of fabric at the turban store.
Here is another variation of the dhamala turban without the Chand Tora. Each person adopts their own method of tying the dhamala. Once you learn the basics you can tweak the method to fit you. Damallas definitely vary in width and length.
The pieces I used were: one 5 meter piece (Dark Blue) one 11 meter piece (White or Blue or any color, this piece has a knot at the end to hold it on my head in the beginning) Both pieces are about 35 cm wide, and referred to in Amritsar as Damalla Material. I'm not sure of the official name of it.
There are three areas where your unconscious can lock your mind and you will not be aware of it: your insecurity, your incompetence and your projection of your reality.
