Im puertorican and i was doing some thinking. i feel like i want to cover up from head to toes just cause im insecure.. my hair is very thin and damaged and i can't afgor d extentions at the moment i just feel like being fully covered... that way i can leave the house without being scared i usually stay home and isolate myself cause im not fully comfortable with myself.
Would it be disrespectful for me to wear a hijab?

The question you need to ask yourself - aside from it benig disrespectful or not - is if you want to handle negative backlash you will be getting.
My suggestion would be something like this:

Wearing a scarf on your head isn't exclusive to Muslims. In the old ages, Christian women used to hide their hair. And in the 50's there was a phase of fashion where women put a scarf on their hair as well to look rich.
I've never heard of a Muslim woman get offended because a non-Muslim wore a scarf, being a Muslim myself.
However, if it's for insecurity problems it might just not be your best decision as hiding yourself won't fix the problem. You can wear a scarf, but do it with confidence! :D3
