Summer Haircare Rituals For Hijabis

Hair has always been associated with beauty, and covering one's hair is mostly seen as a religious practice. Haircare and hijab together, in the same sentence, seem like a contradiction; as the hijab draws so much controversial attention, the hair beneath that hijab is often forgotten. But the women wearing these hijabs don’t love their hair any less than you. To honor their spiritual beliefs does not mean they should shun their own beauty standards. 

While a hijab can help you protect your hair from heat damage, it may unfortunately also ruin your hair in various ways, depending on how the hijab is worn. If the scarf is too tight, your hair may produce excess oil, killing your hair follicles. If untreated, clumps of hair may begin to fall out, and your hair becomes rougher. Apart from greasy roots and frizzy ends, Hijabis also struggle with alopecia. 

Here at the Soorat beauty is not a compromise, there are plenty of influential women who wear their hijabs proudly, while flaunting a beautiful head of hair underneath. We want to highlight some of these hair care regimes, while shedding light on important products in our store, to nourish the hair beneath the scarf.

Halima Aden blew the world away by becoming the first ever hijabi-model to be spotted at New York fashion week. This star wore her hijab proudly emphasizing the coexistence of beauty and spirituality. As a hijabi Halima struggled to volumize and nourish her hair. However, after using VIRTUE Virtue Restorative Treatment Mask she felt confident enough to walk the runway.  This mask is the ideal solution for lifeless, and damaged hair. It works well for every hair type while its chemical-free properties leave the hair feeling silkier and smoother. Once you rinse it off with shampoo, make sure your hairs dry before wrapping it up again.

Other Treatments 

If none of the above methods work and you’ve left your hair untreated for too long, don’t lose hope. There are more expensive, invasive treatments that will definitely work. Apart from Keratin, Scalp and hot oil treatments you may have to have a hair transplant. One well known center is the
 Hairage Hair Transplant Clinic whose expertise is hair loss surgery, more specifically the FUE hair transplants. Unlike all other FUE systems, HairAge FUE uses a 0.8mm punch for graft extraction, causing minor scarring in the donor area, which is not visible to the naked eye. The minimal scarring makes this treatment ideal for Hijab worn-down hair.  


Just because someone’s hair is not on display for the world, it does not mean it should be given less attention. Hijab wearers often need to take extra care of their hair, as it is covered all day. These treatments can be used to maintain thick, lush hair while still wearing that Hijab like a crown on your head. No one should have to compromise between beauty and faith.
