Hair = Modesty, Identity & Faith

Hair = Modesty, Identity & Faith

Hey Love Club, 

Today we're highlight another supporter and her journey with self-discovery. Ikram is a beauty blogger, known for her glass skin and beauty recommendations, who speaks about what hair means to her. 

Introduction: Miss Thiccy Ikky

Being a hijabi, and more specifically a black hijabi, comes with its unique set of challenges, especially when it comes to hair care. For me, my hair represents not only my identity and faith but also my modesty. My journey with the hijab began in fourth grade, on a seemingly innocent pumpkin patch day. My mom had braided my hair beautifully, and I was excited to capture memories with my pumpkin. However, a thoughtless comment from a classmate about my forehead size planted a seed of self-consciousness in my impressionable mind. In response, I turned to the hijab as a way to conceal what I perceived as a flaw.

What Hair Means to Me

Over the years, I've come to understand the true meaning of hijab and have grown to love it deeply. Yet, I must admit that I've also used it at times to hide more than just my physical appearance. Until recently, I neglected my hair care, rationalizing that since it wasn't visible, it didn't matter. But through self-reflection, I realized that caring about others' perceptions had to take a back seat. I came to understand that even though my hair may not be seen by others, it symbolizes everything about me. It's a part of my identity, my faith, and my self-expression.

My Hair Care Story

Last year marked a turning point for me when I decided to take my hair care seriously. It became a form of self-care, an act of self-love that I owed to myself. Just like my skincare routine, tending to my hair became an essential part of my daily ritual. The journey hasn't been easy; I've battled issues like dry scalp and hair loss. But with each challenge, I've grown stronger and more resilient.

My experiences with both my hijab and my hair have shaped the person I am today, and I wouldn't change a single thing about it. They have taught me the importance of self-acceptance, self-love, and embracing every aspect of my identity. My hair, concealed though it may be, is a powerful symbol of my strength, resilience, and unwavering commitment to authenticity.
