Hair is a gigantic topic, it can be lighter serious or even sacred.
Women often see hair as a reflection of identity because it is both personal and public. Many women feel that a bad hair day equals a bad day: when a woman’s hair is too fine, too frizzy, too dry, turning grey or falling out, her self-esteem is seriously affected.
This deep personal relationship between hair and self-esteem is evident throughout history, philosophy and even religion. These are just a few of the things hair has symbolized for women throughout time.
History has shown that hair is a symbol of femininity. During the civil war when women were not to battle, hundreds of women soldiers disguised themselves as men by cutting off their hair, eventually being imprisoned upon discovery.
After the Battle of France in 1940, French women’s heads were shaved as punishment for their sexual relationships with German soldiers. Today a woman’s hair remains a symbol of femininity.
It’s no wonder women feel like their hair is a “crowning glory,” as this phrase dates back to Biblical times. According to 1 Corinthians 11: 15, “but for a woman, if her hair is abundant, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering.”
As shown in 1 Corinthians 11: 5, “and every woman, who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered, dishonours her head; for she is on a level with her whose head is shaven.” The negative implication of a woman with a bare head is apparent in today’s society.
Freedom and beauty:
Lady Godiva’s naked ride through the streets has made her a heroine to the common people of Coventry. The image of Lady Godiva riding a horse with her body covered with only her long hair has become a symbol of civic freedom and beauty.
Therefore history has shown the importance of hair in thee daily lives of women.
Many YouTubers, bloggers ,vlogs try to show the society on how to keep and maintain natural hair be it white or African hair.
Natural hair is a sign of beauty to women and many find it sentimental for each and every women to keep their hair.
