Dry The Hair


Alright, I’m totally guilty in this matter. I admit that I do it sometimes whenever I’m in a rush and don’t have the time to properly dry the hair. However, it’s actually very important that you dry the hair first before putting on your hijab. Wearing the hijab while your hair is wet will only strain them and resulting a weaker hair roots. It will also cause your hair to tangle easily. So make sure that you plan your day accordingly if you want to wash your hair. Wake up an hour or two earlier so that you have the time to let them dry. If you’re really in a rush, just blow dry them!

Wear The Right Materials

I don’t know about you but I’m quite fussy when it comes to choosing the material for my under-cap and hijab. As for under-cap, it is very recommended that you buy cotton material as it is breathable. As for my hijab, I usually go for chiffon or viscose cotton. Most of the time, I wear chiffon. Not only these materials are light, they also will not make your head feel heavy or suffocated. Lastly, don’t forget to wash them often too! It will prevent dirt and germs from accumulating which will help your scalp to stay healthy and clean.

Don’t Tie Too Tight


Ah, how many of us are guilty in this matter? I know I do *raises hand*. This is quite hard for me to do because I love tying my hair tight. I love when everything stays in place and there are no stray hairs coming out from the sides of my face. But this is totally wrong, girls. Hijabis need to tie the hair a bit loose so that the root will not be strained too much causing them to be weak and thus, resulting in frequent hair falls.

Let Them Breathe


When you’re at home, make sure that you let your hair down once in a while. You need to go easy on them since we always tie our hair when wearing hijab. Depending on our lifestyle, some of us spend more than 10 hours a day wearing hijab. So we do advise you to let loose your hair whenever you’re at home. If you’re not used to letting your hair down, then you can still tie them. However, make sure that they are tied loosely in a bun or ponytail. Let them breathe a little.

Wash Them Regularly


Just because you’re wearing a hijab, it doesn’t mean that you can neglect your hair care. Just like those who don’t wear hijab, we also have to wash our hair every other day. It’ll help to wash away the dirt on our scalp, keeping them healthy and clean. If you frequently skip washing your hair, it will actually smells especially if you wear hijab in a long period of time. You may not notice the smell but everyone around you surely does! So do yourself a favor and wash your hair regularly, alright ladies?

Treat & Trim


Go to hair salons and pamper your hair once in a while. Get some scalp or hair treatments so that they are in the best condition! You also need to trim your hair at least every two months so that you can get rid of the split ends and brittle ends. Your hair will definitely look so much neater! Don’t forget to brush your hair twice daily too, it’ll help to avoid knots. If you have some spare time, do apply hair mask from time to time. You hair will be moisturized and rejuvenated!

So these are some of the hair care tips for all hijabis out there! You should definitely include all of them in your routine and your hair will definitely thank you later.
