I admit that I am not as big a fan of silk hijabs as I am silk fashion headscarves, but I do like them. To be clear, a fashion headscarf IS NOT the same as a hijab, despite what both some Muslims and westerners believe. A hijab is a religious head covering that shows no hair. In fact, a skull cap is often worn as part of the hijab to insure that no hair is seen. A fashion headscarf, like those that were popular decades ago, can show hair and would never be considered a hijab.
