5 Tips for Healthy Hair under Hijab This Summer

5 Tips for Healthy Hair under Hijab This Summer

Today's blog is dedicated to my Hijabi girlies out there! (Hey loviess!) As we all know, summer is here, and while we adore the sunshine and beach vibes, our hair might be feeling the heat a bit too much, especially under the hijab. The heat and humidity can really take a toll, making it tough to keep the hair feeling fresh and healthy. That sweaty, stuffy feeling can leave our scalp less than fresh and be a serious struggle, but don't worry, I've gathered some tried-and-true tips to ensure your hair stays fresh, healthy, and in top condition despite the soaring temperatures.

First things first, using the right products is key. Scalp sprays are amazing for freshening up throughout the day and keeping your scalp healthy, which is super important to prevent hair fall and thinning. And let’s not forget about the power of hair oils and scalp treatments; these products strengthen your roots, which endure stress from being pulled back when wearing a hijab. Remember: A healthy scalp = healthy hair!


Signs Your Hair Needs Extra Care

Before we jump into the tips and tricks, I thought it would be better if we first addressed a few signs that indicate your hair requires extra care under the hijab:

Heat and Sweat Buildup:

Let’s talk about that sweaty scalp situation, wearing a hijab can sometimes make our heads feel like a sauna, especially if the fabric is thick or tightly wrapped, this buildup of heat and sweat can leave us feeling uncomfortable and maybe even a bit itchy.

Oil and Product Buildup:

Underneath the hijab, hair products and natural oils can accumulate faster than usual, this buildup can make our scalp feel greasy or weighed down, which isn’t exactly the fresh feeling we’re going for.

Dryness and Frizz:

On the other hand, some parts of our hair might feel dry, especially around the edges where sweat evaporation and sun exposure can take a toll, this can lead to frizz and overall dryness.

Tension on Hair Strands:

The constant pulling and tugging from wearing a hijab or a certain hairstyle under the hijab can put stress on our hair follicles, over time, this tension can lead to hair breakage, especially if we’re not giving our hair the care it deserves.


5 Easy Tips for Healthy Hair Under the Hijab This Summer

Alright, let’s dip into some easy-to-follow hacks to keep your hair feeling fresh and fab under your hijab all summer long:

DIY Scalp Refresh Spritz:

It's always handy to have a homemade scalp spray in your bag for a quick pick-me-up on the go. Mix water with aloe vera and a few drops of peppermint oil for a refreshing cool-down and a great scent. Or try blending water with rose water and a drop of lavender oil for a soothing and nice-smelling refresh. Perfect for when you need to freshen up your scalp and feel great!

Choose Breathable Fabrics:

Always reach for hijabs made from lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton or bamboo. These materials allow air to circulate better, so you stay cooler and less sweaty throughout the day. Comfort is key here!

Use Argan Oil on Dry Ends:

One thing I absolutely adore about argan oil is how quickly hair absorbs it, leaving no greasiness on the surface. Apply a small amount to the ends of your hair to prevent them from drying out and looking dull, especially if you're wearing your hijab for extended periods.


Loose Hair Styles:

Tight hijab styles can strain your roots and lead to breakage. Embrace looser styles like loose buns or braids—they’re not only cute but also way more comfortable, your hair will thank you!

Scalp Massage:

Treat yourself to a gentle scalp massage before bed—not only for relaxation but also to boost blood flow, ease tension, and feel downright heavenly after a long day of wearing a hijab.
