    Your hair makes your looks..i guess thats the reason why. You know, a women or even a man with a nice hair is much more attractive than the ones with a not so good hair.

    Good question...I've been asking myself that a lot recently. Due to medications that I need to take, my hair has thinned over the past six years. It's not like I'm bald or anything, but my hair is definitely not as thick as it once was. It is slightly depressing, made more so by the fact that I try to revive it with shampoos, conditioners, masques, even massaging olive oil into my scalp! I usually am not a vain person, but I miss my thick hair and sometimes worry that it lessens my overall appearance. Women want to look beautiful and make-up is subjective, but every single woman has hair that they want to look nice. Short, long, brunette, or blonde, it doesn't matter. A woman just wants nice hair! Shiny, smooth, and thick, I think those are the three bases that a woman wants to cover when it comes to her hair. So, why do men care so much about their car/guitar/motorcycle? Because it says something about you.

    When my hair is "cooperative", I feel better overall.  I think it is such a big part of your appearance, so we want it to look full and fabulous smile

    I've always thought of my hair as my crown. When my crown is adorned properly, I feel like the regal woman that I am. It just gives me more confidence when I know my hair is prettily coiffed.

    I dunno, its a girl thing.

    When your hair looks good, you look good. That's why a "bad hair day" can really bring down your self-esteem.

    I'm going to say that it is because men, and other women, care sooo much about hair.
    When asked what they look at first a lot of men will say hair as one of the top 3.

    Media and television dictate was is important to the majority of society, and most people eat exactly what we are being spoon fed.  According to the different forms of media we need to look a certain way or we aren't desirable to anyone.  Which of course, is absolute foolishness.

    The chances of them going bald is low. So they are in it for the long haul. I mean if you didn't have a yard or knew it was dying, why bother watering it or mowing.

    So women probably fuss over their hair because they'll always have it.

    Nice,healthy hair and a good hair style is something associated with the beauty in women. As women are mostly much conscious about their appearance,they place extra attention to their hair.
    And besides everything mostly, having a bad hair day is not a good thing at all smile

    Because it makes a LOT of difference in the way we look smile

    It's our crowing glory.  Make the hair sleek, then we look sophisticated.  Give it some beachy waves, then we look instantly casual.  Have it curled, then we look romantic.

    Hair is really an important part of the total look.

    There is a saying that a woman's hair is her crown and glory.  Most women care about their hair because it is so easy to change in contrast to losing weight or any other cosmetic change.
