Hair is the most important asset of your overall look. It defines your personality and what kind of a person you are. Styling your hair according to your outfit is the most important task to do. It should always compliment your outfit and makeup in order to look presentable. People get attracted to other people’s hairstyles and textures. You may have noticed that people with pretty curls always get complimented by strangers because, in our culture, people don’t have good curly textures, and they don’t do efforts to define their curls. But in Europe and America, people with curly hair do a lot of effort to define their curls and make them look beautiful. Similarly, people with silky straight hair also get a lot of compliments because it also takes a lot of care to keep your straight hair frizz-free.

Studies have shown that people with shiny and healthy hair are approached more frequently on average. How you style your hair and how you take care of them speak a lot about your confidence and self-esteem. People with low self-esteem don’t care how their hair looks. People suffering from mental health issues don’t do their hair regularly because doing your hair on a regular basis is a sign of a healthy brain.

What is Good Hair?

This is a very controversial question because the societal standards of good hair in the West could never apply to African and Asian ethnicities. Everyone has a different texture of their hair because of their ethnicities and backgrounds. People with frizzy hair face extreme pressure to make them straight or style them up to the societal standard of pretty hair. Hair that follows the societal standard of straight, wavy, silky, and soft hair is considered good hair, and all the other unique textures are not considered in the list of these standards. Black and Asian people’s hair is rough in nature with uneven textures, which makes them stand out. Hence, every hair type is beautiful regardless of its nature and texture. The only standard which should be considered to identify good hair is the wellness and good health of the strands.

Every hair type is beautiful and unique in its own way.  There could be a number of ways to make your hair healthy and strong. Some of them are as follows:
