My hair type

“Naturally pin straight so it's really easy to maintain!”

Care tips

“It's very simple for me. I try not to do anything to my hair to keep it healthy. I go for the straight cut so it looks fuller. It’s the exact same cut as when I was 6."

My hair type

“Naturally thick, curly and voluminous.” 

My hair maintenance tricks

“I very rarely straighten or style it as my curls are tricky. They have a life of their own! Also, I never comb my hair. Curls are not meant to be combed. I just run my fingers through it.”

 My hair type

“Thick and wavy, slightly on the coarse side.”

My new short cut

Essential hair products for covered hair
Hair serum! I will apply it everyday on my hair before wearing the hijab. I highly recommend hijab wearers to own one. I also do a home hair spa at least once a week.”

Food to maintain healthy hair
“I love leafy greens and that's actually good not just for my hair but as a whole. Besides that, fish oil vitamins to strengthen my hair.” 

Staying comfortable under the hijab
“First and foremost, always, always, always fully dry your hair! After that, I apply serum, paying extra attention on the roots. If you have long hair, make sure you it’s not tied too tight.”
