Our fave social media holiday: National Dubi Day
Univision blessed us with HUGE news on AUG 21 2015: Puerto Rico was to celebrate its first National Dubi Day.
We're not one year and many moons since, but have not forgotten this special day.
Do you know what a Dubi (aka Rollete) is? If not, here is some history:
Como nace el Dubi: We always assumed this was Dominican, but apparently Puerto Rico feels a lot of ownership over this "do" designed to keep your blow out from getting absolutely ruined by humidity/life.
The Dubi, aka the Doobie Wrap, consists of having your straightened hair set in a roll around your noggin with handfuls of bobby pins to keep your locks in place, and perhaps a hair net (looking good). You are meant to sleep in this and you may or may not almost poke an eyeball out throughout the night. It's all part of the fun.
When does one use the Dubi? The Dubi is prepared by your Caribbean hair stylist before a big day. Say, the night before middle school picture day, or the night before an appointment at the American embassy for a visa appointment. Or the night before your cousins' first communion (no time for the pelu so early).
What at are the benefits of the Dubi? Your hair will maintain itself straight - no behead thanks to the good old doob-e-doo.
Conclusion. Let us pray for the Dubi and take a 🙏 #TBT moment to salute @badgirlriri's diamond Dubi to the 2013 AMA's, plus a shout-out to all the strong Caribbean women who have rolled our manes into a neat wrap after a burn-your-ears-off blow-out. 🔥
