Say No to Slipping: How to Keep Your Hijab in Place!
Posted on 12 March 2017
We all know the struggle of trying to keep our hijabs in place, especially on busy days when we need our hijabs to just stay put. It often comes down to blaming the material, and simply giving up on it and resorting to a hijab we are used to wearing. This can limit your selection of hijabs, which means you'll be missing out on so many unique and beautiful fabrics. This is why we've compiled a number of ways that will help keep that hijab in place so that you can conquer the day in confidence!
What are undercaps?
An undercap is simply a tube under scarf, that is meant to be worn before wrapping a hijab.
What does it do?
The undercap is a great way to keep your hijab from slipping. It is made from natural fibre cotton, which keeps the hijab in place and allows your hair and scalp to breathe. Wrapping a hijab over your hair can cause the hijab to shift and slip throughout the day because of the texture of the hair. An undercap creates a non-slippery base, which keeps your hijab in place all day.
Bonus: An undercap can also help with avoiding oil stains on chiffon hijabs. Having a barrier between your hair and the hijab can help with absorbing any excess oil, saving your hijab from oil stains!
Where can you get them?
We carry a number of different types of undercaps! Simply head on over to the "Necessities" section of our website, or click here!
2. Pins and other things!
We know that pins can sometimes be a pain, and rather inconvenient. However, they can often be a huge help with keeping your hijab in place! Using a no snag pin to secure the hijab under your chin, and a straight pin to secure the hijab on the side will make sure the hijabs does not move.
Alternatives: If you're really not into pins, or you're looking for an alternative, you can try tiny magnets! Most craft stores sell very strong, but tiny, magnets that you can use to secure your hijab, without using pins!
It's also important to mention that the fabric of your hijab plays a huge role as well. If you're wanting to wear a chiffon hijab, try going for a chiffon with more texture, rather than a smooth one. This will make the hijab more manageable and less likely to slip around.
How you style your hijab is also very important! Different styles wear differently: a loose style will move around more, whereas a style that is wrapped more securely will not. If you prefer a more loose style, make sure to wear an undercap, it will help minimize the slipping!
