The significant symbol of a Muslim woman, the Hijab can also help non Muslim women who are facing temporary or permanent hair loss. The hair loss could be due to a number of reasons including health problems and medical treatments as well as post partum. The way to hide it is simple and easy with the help of trendy and stylish hijabs worn in a fashionable way to hide the obvious signs of hair loss.
Hijabs have been worn by Muslim women for centuries in order to keep their heads covered for modesty and decency. Although they are considered to be a religious icon specific to the followers of Islam, recent times have seen a change in this assumption. Certain non Muslim women also opt to wear these chic styled hijabs in order to keep their hair covered during times of hairlessness, whether for a short time or for prolonged use.
Hijabs available in lightweight fabrics such as 100% organic cotton and pure silk can be worn all year round due to the breathable material. Whether wearing them indoors or outdoors, this weightless material made scarves offer the perfect solution. During the summer time they are delicate enough to wear without feeling over heated. In the wintertime these gentle hijabs can be supplemented with woolen or polyester under scarves in order to keep the head warm.
The hijabs can be worn by women suffering baldness issue in more unconventional and untraditional ways than those used by Muslim women. The rectangular ones can be loosely draped around the head to cover the hair, or the square shaped ones can be folded into a triangle and pinned under the chin after placing upon the head.
A majority of women facing hair loss problems try different methods to hide it from others. Hats, caps and shawls all are options which they tend to explore. However, after trying various different alternatives, women like the look and feel of the classy Hijab style headgear to solve their dilemma. The caps, hats, bandannas and shawls do not offer the flexibility of using your own choice of fabric as they are available in pre fabricated materials. The convenience of choosing the fabric and material which suits your skin type, weather conditions and other environmental factors are a big plus when it comes to opting to wear hijabs. All these reasons add up in favour of the Islamic headgear, which becomes the obvious choice of non Muslim women suffering from hair loss.
