10. Do all Sikhs wear turbans?

Answer: no

Kesh, one of the Five Ks of Sikhism, requires men to have uncut hair, and to keep it covered. Most men use a turban as their hair covering, but there are alternatives. These are worn when a turban is not a viable option - while travelling or residing in an area where no suitable material is available, or when engaged in an activity (such as playing sport) which makes it inappropriate.

They include a range of caps and scarves.
