Is any other sisters slighty creeped out with the current craze for “hijabs with volume”…i.e. having a headscarf which gives you a all-over big head-not just a huge bump ala’ hair flower, but all over HUGE-ness! Its like the Muslim womans version of non-Muslim womans vanity for fluffy hair…with volume!
Any simple google searches for “hijab with volume” or “volume hijab” yields farrr tooo many posts and YOUTUBE videos (ofcourse!) showing how the youthful hijabista can achieve the current hijabista craze of a volumized hijab!
LMAO! Seriously…Can you even fathom how ludacris that sounds? A hijab with volume!!! Like really who cares whether your hejab has volume…hello vanity! All it does is draw attention to yourself and negate the hejab.
I can understand if you have a serious mane of hair! I know plenty of sisters with very, very thick curly hair which naturally adds plenty of volume to their headscarf or if you do a low do-rag, bun wrap thingie to anchor the scarf in place better (I do this sometimes myself, as some scarves stay put better with a do-rag in a bun wrap)…but not in an giganto head sort of way to draw attention to ones self!
One such example is this sisters youtube video. I know its cool and trendy…but do we need to perpetuate it? hat ever happened to hejab to show ones piety, deen and modesty?
