Why Do We Care About Hair?

August 2, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Why do we care so much about our hair? I mean it’s just hair, right, so what’s the big deal? Why can’t we just wake up and walk out the door? Instead we have to worry about straightening our hair or making sure it looks presentable for the world. I’m just as guilty as anyone out there but I still think it’s odd that we worry so much about our appearances here in America. In Europe people hardly shower so we could probably quit caring so much, right?

Wrong. Hygiene is something that is so important no matter who you are or where you’re from. Not just washing your hair daily but making sure that you get a proper haircut at the proper time and keep it nice and trimmed. We don’t only use shampoo and hair scissors in America to improve our appearance; we do it to keep a healthy feel to our hair too. Why is this so important, you might ask.

In America people care a lot more about appearance and/or first impressions than people do in other countries. That’s the reason most people take care of themselves better here but what they don’t realize is that we can keep ourselves healthier and feeling better too by keeping up with our healthy look. There are a couple reasons as to how this is true is. One is because when we have a healthy trim for our hair every six to eight weeks, it gets rid of all split ends and problem areas that can become a pain to deal with down the road. This means that instead of standing and trying over and over to get your hair to cooperate in the morning, you could make it easy to style and a lot less strenuous on yourself.

Another reason it is important to maintain good hygiene is to prevent sickness. If you shower every day, you will keep all the bad/dirty skin cells away from your immune system. It may seem weird that a shower can keep you from getting sick but it’s true-keeping skin and hair clear of dirt and grime will keep a higher tolerance from cold and flu viruses.

It’s good to know that you can keep yourself healthy just by washing your hair daily. And who doesn’t want to save a few minutes in the morning instead of waste an hour on just their hair? These helpful tips will make each day of hairstyling a little bit better.

A new test designed to detect breast cancer may soon be available for sale in Europe. The test is called Fermiscan and is capable of detecting the disease in its early stage, when it is the easiest to treat. This new revolution can detect cancer from just 20 strands of hair, needing only to be an inch long, by identifying changes of the hair’s structure of someone suffering from cancer.
