Have you ever wondered how long it takes for hijabis to get ready? The amount of starch they need to apply to their hijab in order to make sure it is on point? The amount of time they take to decide which hijab suits the outfit they’re wearing on that day? Not many people know of the struggles that hijabis have to face. So, here goes some of the struggles!
- Getting the ‘hijab hair’
Similar like the ‘helmet hair’, hijabis also get hijab hair! Imagine taking of the hijab after a long day wearing headscarves, and the hair has become flat! That flat-scalp look really is not pleasing even to oneself.
- Food being trapped in hijab
Yes people, it does happen. Popcorns got stuck in your hijab. Even the tiny rice from your lunch would sometimes be found hanging on your scarf. Not to forget the oily stains that has become the additional patterns on the hijab.
- Wearing the same hijabs every time
Our brain works in a very mysterious way. No matter how many scarves we have in our wardrobe, we would always wear that same scarf. That one worn-out headscarf that would fit nicely with just EVERYTHING.
- Being poked with hijab pins
All hijabis would experience this at least twice in their entire period of wearing hijab.
- Involuntary make up remover
Wearing hijab also means you don’t have to worry about wiping off the make up from your face. When we sweat, the hijab would be doing us a favor by absorbing the make up since the scarf tightly hugs our face.
- Using earbuds
Who knew plugging in the earphones would cause so much hassle. Well it is for hijabis. Sometimes the earphones need to be worn before putting on the hijab. Or they can be plugged after wearing the hijab. Either way, the hijab would be messy again once we take the earphones out. Some might suggest wearing headphones, but that too would make the scarf messy even the slightest.
