The Secret Life of a Hijabi

Sometimes I don’t brush my hair before leaving the house. (No one’s going to see it anyways).

I have good hijab days, and then I have Bad Hijab Days. Sometimes they happen on the same day.

Sometimes I’m convinced that my head changes shape overnight, since a scarf that looked SO nice yesterday suddenly doesn’t fit anymore.

I really LOVE it when people ask me “Aren’t you hot in that?” when I’m wearing pants, and full sleeves in 30 degrees+ weather. Because I have a secret AC hidden underneath all the layers. πŸ™‚

Sometimes I think my scarf is out to get me.

My fingers have been poked more times than I can count from handling pins. My scalp probably has more bruises than I can count from accidentally pinning my scarf to my head.

Sometimes I use the hood of my coat as a hijab Β when I go out to throw out the garbage. I’m hoping the night will cloak my hijab-less neck.

Shopping for tops that pass my bum, are not see-through, are long-sleeved, are not low-necked, and are loose makes me want to poke my eyes out.

Sometimes I miss wearing earrings.

I don’t actually know how to straighten or curl or style my hair.

    This actually made me laugh out loud! Well, the part with the inner AC and the pinning your scarf to you head. I have multitude of battle scars from my straightener, so I guess no matter what we have on our head, scarf or a mane of unruly hair, nothing is ever easy lol.
