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.
