If we're going to look at one of the rare positives of the quarantine, it's that our hair and skin are doing a lot better than they have in a while. If you're a hijabi, you unfortunately know the struggle and the effect of hijab on hair. Staying at home is a good chance to revive your hair and learn how to fix hijab hair. As a hiijabi, I decided to help you learn the best tips for taking care of your hair while you're at home. 

You can find endless hair care tips right here. 

1. Let your hair breathe

One of the first things, I think your hair really needs is to be free. When you're wearing the hijab, it stays tied up and wrapped for a long period of time. So, make use of this time at home and leave your hair down, leave it to breathe and get some air. Try to refrain from using any hair ties or accessories, just let it be for a few hours a day.

2. Pick hairstyles that do not cause hair loss

Some hairstyles can actually aid with hair loss so try to avoid ones that could cause breakage or hair fall. Try not to pull your hair back too tightly into a bun or ponytail. Try to leave your hair down as much as you can. 

For all the hijabis is out there...this is where you need to be.

3. Do you suffer from hair loss?

If you suffer from hair loss, one of the best things you can do for your hair is a scalp massage. If you massage your scalp everyday for 15 minutes before bed, it will stimulate blood circulation and therefore, healthier hair growth. You can also use a small amount of a light serum to help you massage it.

4. Trim your hair

If you suffer from split ends, you should consider trimming them to ensure your hair is growing in a healthy way. It is a quick way to get rid of split ends, but you should also be taking care of your ends by hydrating them with oils and conditioners.

Here's how you can cut and trim your own hair at home.

5. Hot oil hair treatment

You can use the natural oils you have at home, like castor oil, olive oil, or coconut oil for a hot oil hair treatment. Heat up the oil in the microwave, then apply it from the scalp to the ends of the hair, massaging the hair for 15 minutes. Leave it on for 2 hours, then wash you hair really well with shampoo and conditioner. This treatment can help thicken the hair.
