I am pleasantly surprised to find myself writing about hair. It must have been prompted by my barber who keeps prompting me that I am greying. I guess it may have something to do with suggesting that I use dye. I am definitely not interested in dye at this point but I have nothing against those who use dye; it’s your hair, have fun with it.
We worry so much about what to do with our hair; how short to cut it, how bushy it should be and what colour will make it more appealing. Sometimes we are forced to shave all the hair on our scalp when the angel of baldness visits us. Many people my age seem to have more hair on their arms than their scalp can boast of. Our hair says a lot more about us than how closely we follow the latest hair styles.
The good news is what is good for the rest of your body is also what creates building blocks for healthy, shiny, strong and beautiful hair. This includes a healthy nutrient-rich diet, lots of water, exercise, relaxation, smoking cessation and a daily hair care regimen.
“HAIR” are the facts
These days hair lice is not very common in Sikaman. Gone are the days when school children spotted “grey hair” courtesy of the “eggs” of lice. I wonder how we managed to be attentive in class as the rebellious lice competed for attention with the teachers.
Aye! This hair matter, when you quarrel with your spouse in the morning it may “show” from its terrible appearance. When you fail an examination, your rent is late or you have problems at work hmmm your hair may betray you.
TIPS FOR MANAGING YOUR HAIR
Dear friend, your hair may be revealing your innermost secrets so look sharp and if in doubt get professional help or maybe just maybe get a good looking wig.
HAVE A GOOD HAIR DAY.
AS ALWAYS LAUGH OFTEN, ENSURE HYGIENE, WALK AND PRAY EVERYDAY AND REMEMBER IT’S A PRICELESS GIFT TO KNOW YOUR NUMBERS (blood sugar, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, BMI)
