Solange Knowles got married last week, and she did it in style.

If you don’t know who she is, her big sister is the infamous Beyonce.

Her dress received many compliments, because it was simple and elegant.

I wish they had dresses like that at bridal stores when I was looking for mine!

It’s interesting because this has now sparked the topic of modest fashion again.

This definitely showcases how you can still be glamorous even if you’re not showing too much skin.

Do you think it’s “cool” when celebrities choose to be modest? Why do women of various faiths who dress conservatively get made fun of, while celebrities get a pass?

If you’re looking for a pant that you can easily layer some long johns underneath, let me recommend these from Gap.

They are easy to tuck into boots. And you can wear them with a long sweater top to look a little stylish even when bundled up.

The crazy part, is that after I started writing this… I found out they are completely sold out, so I can’t even give you a link :(

However, I will hopefully be able to share the link once they’re restocked.

I’m thinking I should have bought more than one pair… in case they never bring them back again lol!

What are you favorite go to winter pants?

Wearing hijab all the time can make you forget about your hair.

At least that’s what happens to me. I put it up in a bun and wrap my scarf around my head and think nothing of it.

But, there are days when I wish I would take better care of my hair.

What if I end up having friends over, I don’t want them to see my tangles and frizz! lol.

I decided to buckle down and do something about it, and finally went to get myself a new flat iron. The one I have is from when I first got married, nearly 10 years ago! wow time flies :)

Once I picked out a flat iron, I asked the sales lady if she knew of any good heat protectant for the hair. That’s when she told me what her personal favorite item to use is….

It’s called “It’s a 10, miracle leave-in product”

hijabi hair care tips

All you have to do is spritz it on your hair wet or dry before styling.

I am in love with this stuff! For the first time in … a long time hehe… my hair is frizz free! It’s soft and luxurious and I even use on the kids when I braid their hair, it helps tame the fly aways.

Added benefit is that it’s also a heat protectant so you can heat your hair and not worry.

As you can see from the photo it comes in a variety of sizes, I bought the biggest one and I’m glad I did because we’ve been using it a lot in our home… even Mr. Hijabtrendz is into it haha!

Have any of you tried this before? What is your favorite hair styling product? Do you even think hijabis should care about their hair lol?
