Lovely Hair is Feminine

Lovely hair has always been one of woman's greatest attractions. "It has sex!" remarked one of those men who miss nothing. We called the Museum of Natural History to double check and it's true! Decorative hair is purely feminine, even though, the Museum tells us, there have been times when men wore their hair long and flowing, while women shaved off all this glamor. We have also at different times twisted it, tied it, teased it, dyed it.

Yet the ideal truly beautiful hair has remained unchanged through the ages. It turns men's heads most easily when it's soft, fragrantly clean and shimmering with health and highlights.

Granted that your general health is good, look to your scalp. Healthy hair must come from a vibrantly healthy scalp. If the scalp becomes clogged with soil, perspiration and dandruff, the oil cells cannot function properly and the hair becomes dry and strawlike or oily and limp.

Shampoo should, in either case, be frequent. How frequent depends on may factors - where you live, how you live, what you do for a living and the kind of hair you have. Oily hair needs washing more often than dry hair, of course. Washing doesn't harm the hair any more it harms the skin to take frequent baths. With the right kind of shampoo and there are many excellent ones thorough rinsing and drying, shampooing neither dries up the scalp not destroys hair growth, not increases dandruff. Instead, the dirt, dust, scales, etc are removed and circulation improved.

Wet the entire head before you apply the shampoo solution. This makes for faster sudsing. And if you want to get your hair clean in hurry, try this shampoo technique: With the fingers placed wide-spread at the hair-line on each side of the head, scrub with short, firm, back-to-front strokes until the fingers tips meet at the crown. When the sides of the scalp fell clean, use the same short stroke manipulations from the forehead line and nape, again letting the finger tips meet at the top of the head.

Unless the hair is to be set and dried under the heater, dry it with clean Turkish towels, using a patting technique. On clear, warm days, let it dry out the sun. A bit of hair-dressing may be applied if hair appears too "electric" and unmanageable. But use such preparations sparingly, because too heavy an application makes hair look greasy.

Brushing is as important as shampooing. So sit down before your dressing table mirror armed with a good clean, firm-bristled brush that is washable. Before brushing, however, give your scalp a few minutes massage. First part your hair into strands, then using both thumbs as pivots, massage the scalp with your finger tips and the palm of your hands. If you use any kind of liquid tonic or ointment, massage it into the scalp at this point.

Hi, Prasetio30, you're right. I think hair is one of the first factors we notice in woman's attractions. Hair also shows one's health condition and how the person keeps his/her health. Thank you for sharing this useful hub. Vote up your hub.
