I've been covering my head for Lent this year. 5 weeks in and I feel I've given it some pretty good practice, but I'd love to have some tips for keeping everything in place and looking tidy!
I know there are lots of different ways that women express their covering, from a simple hair band to a full head scarf. I feel most comfortable somewhere in between and have been wearing a scarf wrapped around my head or a bandana most days with my hair pinned up in the back or in two braids.
I can't keep those scarves up on my head! I use bobby pins on the sides (and the top if it's a dark scarf, but this looks kind of wierd). Everything slips back off my head and by the end of the day I'm pretty frizzy around the front and looking not-so-well-put-together. I have lots of very slippery hair, so it feels thick, but the individual strands are quite thin and silky. It's quite long (below my waist).
