Amena Khan and LOréal changing the cast
Amena has 570,000 followers on Instagram and every time she posts on this social network, her phone explodes with comments and likes. She states that she uses the veil in public since she is 20 years old.
The influencer explained in an interview to Vogue Uk magazine the reason for wearing her hijab in public. Apart from being a way of respecting the religion in which she was raised. “You have to ask yourself: why are women who do not show their hair not supposed to be taken care of? The opposite of that would be that all those who show their hair only take care of it to show it to others. And that mentality takes away our autonomy and our sense of independence. Hair is a big part of self-care “ she argued.
Equality begins with small changes
