1.
A silk-like material worn around the head of black males as a fashion statement. It wraps around the skull, with a small flap hanging down in the rear, over the neck.

Doo-Rags originated in prisons in the 1970's, to try and simulate the long hair of a (male) female inmate, so the (male) males, could easily tell them apart. They were originally black, but many colors are in use today.

Now banned in most prisons of today, Doo-Rags have moved into main stream black fashion, and the use no longer signifies any sexual connotations. Court cases in New York City have supported the use of Doo-rags at work, when employers complained that it was not "appropriate". Black men have even been seen in a business suit, coming from work, wearing a doo rag. Bald Black men (with no braids) also wear doo rags. A doo rag, under a baseball cap, it also gaining popularity.

The word derivation is "Hairdoo rag"
