The Lycra Tube Hijab Cap is shaped like a tube with 2 open ends. It is Lycra/polyester blend so it is stretchy, light and comfortable. The fabric surface has a matte non-shiney finish. It helps scarves and shawls stay in place, keep hair from slipping out, and adds a lovely accent of color with the ever popular layered look. Muslim women can expand their hijab wardrobe by keeping a set of different colors in hand... mix and match them with scarves and shawls.
