This last post of the Wednesdays in October post chain is about hair. Joeyz suggested me to write this. I chose to write about women’s hair. In some languages it is called women’s crown.
It is interesting to talk about hair. Long hair is considered feminine in general while short hair is seen as boyish. But is it? There are feminine girls and women with boyish short hair do. Look at the gorgeous Robyn Wright. Once she was identical with her long blonde locks.
Since a coupe of years ago she cut her hair and got this page hairstyle. She doesn’t look boyish. Instead she looks stylishly feminine.
Most women in almost every culture are fixed on their hair. In general Asian women prefer their hair long and sleek. Flat iron, hair mask and other hair treatments products are in abundance there. I must admit here in The Netherlands I miss the hair beauty treatment called creambath in Indonesia so badly. Creambath is a scalp massage with hair cream for ca 30 minutes followed by damp bath, divine!
Some women with African heritage I know pay good attention to their curly hair. They treat it mostly with wax. My Dutch friends are more into hair gel and hair spray. Dutch women are practical. They tend to have their hair cut short or shoulder length. They hardly have time to style their hair every morning. Not to mention the majority of them do everything from bringing the kids to/from school to doing groceries and going to work by bike. The wind blows hard. It is difficult to keep the hair well styled on a bike you know.
When it comes to hair I am such a bore. As long as I remember I have had long hair. I have only had short hair do four times. And I dyed my hair just once. I don’t plan to do it again. Speaking of which If I’d dye my hair again, I would definitely go for dark tones. I don’t care if blondes have more fun. I even don’t really care if I have a bad hair day. That is the perks of having long hair, I just put it in Ponytail, braid or a chignon. It is easy, hassle free and doesn’t damage my hair. I mean, I hardly use hair products.
How about you ladies? Do you treat your hair like a crown?
