A woman with hijab deserves to look as beautiful as any other woman without a hijab. Looking beautiful is every woman’s deep hidden desire, but a shabby looking hijab might prove to be a dent on your beauty.
Why? Because… a great looking hijab not only makes a woman look graceful but also adds confidence to her personality.
I must warn you wearing and caring for your hijab are two different things. Of course, caring for hijab isn’t an easy job, especially when it comes to wearing fancy hijabs and getting it dry cleaned every single day isn’t so affordable for ladies who carry hijab every single day of their lives - at work, formal dinners and gatherings.
And that’s why we often come across one question.. One question we often get asked at our hijab shop is how to care for hijab at home.
Of course we naturally like to wear good quality hijabs that last for a long time, but the secret to long-lasting hijabs and what tips we need to keep in mind in order take good care of our hijabs regularly is what we are talking about in this post today.
We don’t replace our hijabs every day, they come expensive, and we spend hours and hours looking for an ideal one, hence caring for them is as mandatory as taking care of your formal clothes and also if you want to look presentable and your best at every place you show up you need to invest in not only fine looking hijabs but also making sure that they stay the same.
Here’s what I do to take care of my hijabs, so, worry not my lovelies, and get started!
The very first tip I have for you is to know “how to wear your hijab right”. You must know how important it is to wear your hijab right, using all the right kind of accessories - the right kind of pins and safety pins.
Don’t let stains stay on your hijab for long; anything can leave an ugly dent on your hijab you never know.
Hand washing is the most recommended method for washing most hijabs, however some washing machines have also hand washing settings.
As simple as it may sound to you but drying your hijab correctly also plays an important role when it comes to your hijab care and making sure that they last long.
It’s better to choose a hijab fabric that requires less ironing to no ironing. You can also use a garment steamer.
Now drying your white hijabs in the sun is not a problem.
Make sure to always store your hijabs in clean and dry areas.
Getting hijabs stuck in a safety pin is commonplace for hijabis, what to do in case of a snag?
We all have our go to hijabs for every season that we enjoy wearing a lot. For instance for hot days in summer, I prefer light colored cotton hijabs where as in winter I prefer jerseys and satins, but what happens is when we start wearing a hijab regularly it starts pilling away from all the regular wearing. The piling looks pretty awful and ruin your complete look as it has done to many of my favorite hijabs.
So in case of piling bring out a razor and shave your hijab. (I mean it, please shave your hijabs) I have also shaved many of my clothes before with equal amount of great success. And like you I wasn’t too sure about shaving my hijab, too, since the fabric used for hijab is pretty delicate, but to my surprise the results were great and after shaving them, my hijabs started looking as good as new. Hence, since then I have been enjoying my pill free hijab and advising everyone to do the same.
All you have to do is spread your hijab on a flat surface, smooth surface and shave the affected area. Shave carefully and make sure to avoid bunched up fabric. And there, you have a pill free, brand new hijab ready!
Now another big issue that most people women face on daily basis is staining on hijab. Despite taking great care of their hijabs and avoiding washing them often, women still struggle to keep their hijabs completely stain free.
Dropping food is not unusual, mostly women (especially with toddlers) tend to get stains of juices, ketchup or greese on their hijabs. Sometimes stains go away (if you instantly work on them) but in some cases (especially in a case of greese) they tend to leave an ugly stain or cause discoloration on that particular area.
Washing is quick and fast. For food related stains, use liquid dish-washing detergent related stains on your hijabs and it will work like a charm for you as well as it did for me.
Make sure only wash the stained and the surrounding area and hang to dry.
Snags can easily ruin any decent looking hijab, especially ones with the delicate and soft fabric.
Use a hijab pin or needle to fix a snag, a needle will move the threads back into its place. Later, use your fingertip to gently smooth out the fabric and it will look as good as new.
I hope you will definitely give a go to these quick hijab fixing hacks. These fixes are quick, effective and consume less time and you don’t have to invest a lot of time or even money to try out these hacks, so, you just relax, and carry on your work and life routine with your hijab looking as beautiful as ever hopefully, after implementing our recommended tips.
If you implement these tips fully, you won’t even need to wash or iron your hijabs often. The key is to invest in hijab care and as soon as you spot an issue, treat it right away or once you are back home to make your hijabs last long.
