How do I take care of my hair, whilst wearing the hijab?

Taking care of your hair while wearing the hijab can be done by following a few simple steps:

Make sure your hair is clean and well-conditioned before covering it with the hijab. This will help to prevent tangling and breakage.

Use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush to gently comb through your hair before covering it with the hijab. This will help to remove any knots or tangles.

Use a silk or satin scarf or bonnet to cover your hair at night. These materials are less likely to cause tangling or damage to your hair than cotton or other fabrics.

Avoid using hair styling products that contain alcohol, as they can dry out your hair and make it more prone to breakage.

Keep your hair trimmed regularly to reduce split ends.

Deep condition your hair at least once a week, and make sure to apply a heat protectant before using heat styling tools.

Avoid tying your hijab too tightly, as this can cause damage to your hair and scalp.

Try to avoid wearing the hijab for long periods of time, as this can increase risk of hair damage.

Make sure to take care of your scalp by massaging it with oil regularly and keeping it clean, as a healthy scalp equals healthy hair.

Stay hydrated and eat a healthy diet to promote hair growth and overall health.
