    I recently started wearing the hijab and I have got a scar/ scab on my neck from wear my safety pin usually is. It hurts loads and often even leaks fluid (i know disgusting.) doesnt look great either it looks like a burn. I need the safety pin to keep my hijab in place it didn't look right when i tried to wear one without the pin. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

    I don't understand how you get a scar from it? Do you not close the safety pin or something...?

    it can dig in to your chin, and can leave a mark if you're wearing it for 6+ hours e.g school

    4 pins? Damn.

    That's quite weird, I'm usually out the house a lot and have to sometimes wear it for 12+ hours, and that's never happened to me.

    I know I'm not organised enough to keep track of all my pins so I don't wear any pins at all (I just tuck the end in by my cheek) but if I wrap it too tightly I sometimes get a sore patch under my chin from the friction so perhaps you're doing the same with the safety pin? If it's leaking fluids it means it's infected so you should probably get that checked out!

    Yeah 4 cause I don't wear safety pins, I wear open-ended into my hair/scarf and it's windy af these days. I guess it depends what style you do as well, I don't pin anything under my chin

    seriously? :/ I get a headache if I wear it for that long, do you wear a volumiser/khaleeji at the back?

    Meh. I have a lazy style. Safety pin under chin and just wrap it around my neck.
    Bit like Habiba Da Silva (YouTuber).

    i dont even wear a pin lol
    just put the short side into the cap/underscarf and wrap the long side around, quite useful cos its easier to adjust, since u wont have to adjust the pin too n dat, also no one gets a pin stab lol,
    dunno jus something i started doing a couple of years back and havnt stopped since, much prefer this way...

    Hi everyone,
    Thanks for your replies.
    I'm tying the scarf by pinning it under my chin and then wrapping it around my head. I think I got the scar from the safety pin under my chin but when I try to wear a scarf without it the hijab doesn't look right.

    OP wear you Hijab in adifferent way, dont use safety pins as they can hurt. You can get them thin long pins which i use or sometimes i dont use a pin at all.

    Maybe you have the pin tight underneath your chin, loosen your scarf abit so that it doesn't hurt you.

    Hey,
    It's not that your wearing the hijab wrong but it's because how you wear the pin. If you decide to wear a pin on the chin part of hijab, then make sure that the pin is faced out wards and the safety bit is inwards (protecting ur chin)
    Also you should try a different hijab style , one dats a bit loose from chin. I personally wrap a scarf around once and then take an fold at top (it makes it loose from bottom but gives a good fold) and then i just wrap the last bit so its secure and the loose part isn't showing.
    Hope I helped sis

    You don't have to wear a pin under the chin. I wear mine for about 8 hrs on a normal day with just one pin and no bandana. But that's just me.

    Try loosening the pin a bit from the chin and it should be okay!
