There’s nothing more embarrassing than standing in line at the bank and having your underscarf slowly slip down the back of your head and plunk to the ground. Ok, well maybe some other things falling out of your overgarments, but I’m not sure what it would be and don’t think we need to go there.
But anyway, underscarves are so important to any hijab ensemble, especially if you are wearing overhead khimars. A bad one can make your day miserable, and a good one can put a spring in your step. To be considered for out-and-about wear, it has to feel comfortable, have good stretch, look nice if showing and stay put. Did you read that last one? Why can’t these things just stay on?? It’s actually hard to find all these qualities in one.
Well, what if I told you, you could have all that and have your underscarf go from covered to cute with a minor adjustment? You would be in love, as I am with these fabulous headbands I got from Umm Ayana at Ummi's Originals by Ummi's House, mashaallah.
Just look at them:

The material is high quality, stretchy, but still tight. The elastic is nice and thick, keeping it where it is supposed to be. To wear as an underscarf, you just flatten out the headband part to it’s widest, and it's pretty wide when stretched without being bulky when relaxed. You can adjust where the elastic sits on the back of your head to make sure your ears are covered. Come on home, hang out at your girlfriend's house, just scrunch it back up to a headband style and you are good to go.

Mashaallah, I love it because it’s clever and well thought out. Muslimahs really need more Islamic clothing options that function well and are a pleasure to wear. These headband underscarves are on my go-to list for good, inshaallah.
Product Description from Ummi's House: These headbands are super versatile and great for hijabis. They double as a wide headband and under scarf allowing you to easily transform your hairstyle to wear under your hijab. All headbands are made from stretch knit and fit toddlers – adults.
Yes, I can vouch for these headbands fitting kids, as my 4 year old son just had to try one out!
