Hijab for the heat: 5 tips

With summer weather upon us and the high temperatures, it can be a little bit tough to find something to wear that isn’t going to make you feel like you’re bundled up for the snow.

Here are 5 tips on what kind of hijabs and hijab styles work well with the heat.

  1. Look for something that has breathable fabric like 100% cotton or bamboo.
  2. Try wearing a one piece hijab style that allows you to have more air-flow underneath as opposed to a shayla that has been wrapped around a few times.
  3. Ditch the Pashmina hijab and only use it in cooler weather. The fabric can feel like heavy wool and in the summer, you’ll be sweating like crazy!
  4. If you know you’re going to be outdoors all day try a jersey fabric hijab. It’s nice and light, perfect for any kind of weather and easy to style.
  5. A great go to hijab style for hot weather is the Spanish hijab style. Pin a turtleneck to it if you need extra neck coverage. Or leave a piece of fabric to pin across your neck and to the side after you’re done making the bun in the back.

How do you stay cool in the summer?

    Spanish wraps and Al-Amira one piece hijabs are great for the hot, humid summer months! Anything that let’s your body enjoy air flow is definitely worth it!

    I heard that other fabrics like linen and silk are really great too in the summer — of course you dont see many linen hijabs 🙂 but it is great for pants in the summer. And I heard silk hijabs are great for summer because they absorb moisture and make you feel cooler.

    I was actually just thinking about this topic so I ordered 100% viscose hijabs in seven different plain colors. I’m happy because the fabric is very light and perfect for the summer but the only problem is that when I pin it the fabric can rip very easily so you have to be extra careful. But next time I’ll go with your suggestion and get cotton or bamboo fabrics!
