A few days ago I posted about the plastic arcs some Muslim women put inside their scarves to achieve a firm front in their hejab…because we all know…squares are prone to the loathsome floppy front!
Just to have a few more on hand because I do like to use them when I wear squares, I ordered a 2 pack of hejab arcs from the online store Al Sharifa (based in Michigan, here in the USA). They came a few days ago and lemme tell you all they are a LOT nicer than the ones I have which a friend brought me from a store in Dearborne. First off the ones Al Sharifa carries are a lot longer and much narrower. They are a lot more comfortable in the hejab and unlike the shorter, wider ones I have from DearbornTHEY DO NOT SLIDE AROUND INSIDE THE HEJAB!!!
My biggest pet peeve with the shorter, wider ones is they constantly slide around and since they are wider, they are a bit more obvious looking, these ones on the other hand fit around the entire face and end right where you pin so they do not move!!! Also they are narrower so the look is a bit more natural.
