Hair Care Tips For Hijabistas


Ever heard of the saying “a woman’s hair is her crowning glory”. Although you are wearing a hijab, you still need to take care of your hair because when the hair is consistently covered, it loses its shine and volume with time. Here are some tips to fabulously care for your hair being a hijabista.

1.       Know your hair type


Not only do you have different skin types, you also have different hair types as well. When you know your hair type, it is easier to find the suitable products and treat your hair accordingly. For example, if you mistaken your hair for the dry type and ended up with dull looking hair, it is probably because you chose the wrong products.


2.       Material of your hijabs


This is very important as living in Malaysia with is hot and humid climate throughout the year, you need to start choosing the suitable hijab materials. Go for cotton since it has breathable natural fibre. It allows the air to circulate through the hijab keeping you cool and your hair can breathe.


3.       Dry your hair first


Before you put on your hijab, please make sure that your hair is dry preferably dried naturally. Wet hair that is tied up and also kept in the hijab for many hours, will end up being limp, flat and prone to breakage. If you are in a rush but still need to wash your hair, why don’t you opt for dry shampoo? You can just spray the dry shampoo, comb your hair and you are good to go.  


4.       Treat your hair right


Every once in a while (preferably once every week) spend some time to actually give all the attention to your hair. Use hair mask (you can even create your DIY hair mask how cool is that?), massage your hair using hair oil for at least 15-20 minutes to boost up the circulation. Once every few months, go to the salon to trim your hair in order to get rid of those split ends!


Having a nice hair underneath your hijab will indirectly increase your confidence as well. Also, it is necessary to take care of your personal hygiene. How do you take care of your hair, fellow hijabis? Do share with us in the comment section below.
