How To Pack The Perfect Shisha Head
The art of packing a head is something most veteran smokers have perfected. If you're new to the world of hookah smoking, there are a few things you need to know before you start packing bowls. This tutorial will show you how to properly pack a bowl and set up your pipe for awesome sessions.
Pack the bowl quite light, just above the airholes.
You should pack the bowl quite lightly, just above the airholes. This will make sure that there is enough space for smoke to travel and not get interrupted. If you pack it too tight, it might burn your shisha too fast and you'll have to refill it more often than usual. If you pack it too loose, there won't be enough resistance for smoke to flow through and your session may be less enjoyable because of this issue.
Make sure you have a good airflow by placing your finger over the hole and pulling on the hose. If the smoke is coming out of the holes, you need to repack or replace your bowl.

Break up any chunks into fine-grained shisha tobacco.
If you have a shisha tool, use it to break up any chunks of tobacco into fine-grained pieces. If not, use your hands or a spoon.
Do not use tools that are too sharp (knives and forks) or else they could cut through the phunnel and damage the hookah stem.
Fill the bowl to about three quarters full with shisha tobacco.
To accurately measure the amount of shisha tobacco to use, you should first determine the size of your bowl. The bigger the bowl, the more tobacco you’ll need.
Fortunately, there’s an easy way to figure out how much shisha tobacco will fit in your bowl: just pour water into it until it is about three quarters full!
Firmly press down on your shisha with your fingers. Put an aluminum foil over the top of your bowl and make holes with a toothpick. Don’t put holes in the center, leave a central hole that is at least twice as big as the other holes.

If you're looking for an easier way to pack your shisha, consider using a funnel or toothpick to make holes in the foil. This will allow air flow while smoking. You can also use a shisha tool like the Tool Hookah Hose Packing Tool or Hookah Hose Ball Packing Tool which has different sized balls inside of it that break up the tobacco during packing so it's easier and faster than using your hands alone.
So there you have it, the perfect way to pack a head! With these tips and tricks you'll be smoking like a pro in no time.
