Leelach Headcoverings – Product Review

Leelach Headcoverings – Product Review

I cover my hair. Every day. There are days when this is the hardest thing ever, especially when my hair looks so good that it’s a shame to cover it up. But I have found that it is so much easier to cover it when the head-covering is light, and even easier when it’s light AND pretty.

I recently purchased a fake bump to add volume / height to my head scarves, and I also invested in a wig grip type band to keep everything from moving around. My hair is quite oily, so without the grip the tichels seem to slide back on my head umpteen times a day.

When I was in Israel two years ago I bought a bunch of sinar-type head-coverings. Sinar is Hebrew for apron. They look like a square of material with a long skinny piece coming out of the top on both sides. It took me a few months to figure out how to wear them, but I found them heavy, and would always have a headache after wearing them for an hour or two.

Leelach sent me the gorgeous tichel shown below, and I immediately was struck by how light the material was, and how it was so much less bulky than the ones I had shlepped back from Israel. The stitching was perfect, no uneven edges, no threads unraveling after the first use. When I was perusing the website to choose one to review, I wanted to pick them all. They have all different types – the sinars, the headbands, scarves, berets and triangular tichels. And the patterns are just so pretty.

Leelach has the most gorgeous assortment of head-coverings – you can totally find something to match every outfit. They also sell modest clothing, Judaica, jewellery and swimwear. All their designers are Israeli from varying different backgrounds with unique talents, and Leelach does what it can to promote their work. Leelach is a young company, only a year old, but with a mission to bring a little bit of Israel into your home.

Honestly, when I wear this sinar head-covering – especially paired with a long flowing skirt and sandals – I feel Israeli. I feel as if I would not be out of place walking down the street in Jerusalem, nodding to others with similar head-coverings.

 

It isn’t difficult to tie a sinar head-scarf, just takes a little practice,  but I always add my own personal twist – a braid of ribbons… I find this helps with the problem of how to tuck the ends in, and also allows me to continue my signature look.

    I love the apron tichels I bought from Israel (took me a bit to figure it out too lol!). Leelach has a lot of really pretty tichels. Are the tails long enough to braid in the back or did you add another sash?

    • HaDassah says:

      The tails are not as long as the others – Once round the head each plus a little left over. Which is actually better. I added sashes for the braiding.

    I’m sorry, but a fake bump! Another thing to worry about! I can just picture myself trying to get out the door: “Has anyone seen my fake bump??” I can’t deal!

    (It happens to look very nice, but still!)

      I recently bought a donut bump, (you can actually make your own with a thick sock!!) and I find it fills my tichels better. I have to admit…I sometimes think of those 80s movies where girls stuffed their sweaters lol!!! (sorry if that was offense).

      • HaDassah says:

        LOL – I love my fake bump! I have one in white and one in black. KoD found it in the closet and wondered exactly what it was for! ;)

  3. I get headaches often, and just recently — after being married two and a half years, and wearing a tichel every day — I figured out how to tie them WITHOUT bobby-pins AND so they stay on for a full day. Any tichel that does those things is a great find!

    As for the fake bump, I get basically the same effect from another tichel wrapped around my bun.

  4. Luckily, I have tight curly hair that’s very thick so even when it’s short, I get the desired look that most women want from a tichel though I call it the Alien look (as in from the movie Alien) because my tichels down protrudes high and back. I guess my hair is its own bump.

    Hadassah, this truly look lovely!

    People keep asking how many tichels I own, which I think compared to people who have been covering for a while, not that much…how many do you own (if you don’t mind me asking?) I mean I can see owning 100 tichels easily in the future…I like shopping at Value Village and there are so many nice scarves people give away because they don’t use them…so i just wash and wear.

    What is the name of the fake bump you bought to put under the scarves? Do you like it? Thanks!
