Listen up, Muslimahs. Here's a new idea for removing stinky gunk from your head covering.
A new product has hit the Pakistani market – Hijab shampoo. It’s meant for women who cover their heads tightly in hijab that leaves their faces exposed.[…]I'd guess that any quality soap would do the job on -- uh -- scalp dirt build-up.
The people who are marketing the new hijab shampoo are capitalizing on what say that is the excess production of oils, build-up of scalp dirt etc.
Meanwhile, the author of the piece, Mahim Maher, makes a couple other interesting assertions regarding the hijab.
A gynaecologist recently told me that a lot of these women who were coming to her clinic for obgyn consults were turning out to be massively deficient in Vitamin D.Heh.
These hijabis, she said, aren’t getting enough sunlight. They are covered up the entire time they go out and when they aren’t covered they are indoors where they don’t get sun. This leads to migraines, bone trouble, and aches and pains that they keep popping pills for.
Interestingly, the boys in Karachi say that it is the girls who wear the hijab and abayas who are most likely to “put out”.
