According to reports, Yao women are allowed to cut their hair once in a lifetime and that is just before they get married.

It is also believed that the first Yao women see any sign of white or grey hair is when they turn 80+.

Сейчас я открою тебе большую тайну. Интернет пестрит советами о необходимости правильного а, ГЛАВНОЕ(!!!), комплексного очищения кожи головы. Без сомнения, очищать кожу головы можно и нужно. Но на самом ли деле для этого нашим волосам жизненно необходимы тоники, скрабы и пилинги, которые стали так популярны в последнее время? Мои бабушки и прабабушки обладали здоровыми волосами, но они знать не знали , что голову можно мыть чем- то, кроме хозяйственного мыла, домашнего кефира и яичного желтка. Какие уж там пилинги. Я никого не призываю отказываться от шампуней и других потрясающихся изобретений косметической промышленности, а просто предлагаю не потреблять все подряд , что советует нам реклама. Уход за волосами, безусловно , необходим. Но красивые и здоровые волосы реально вырастить , обладая всего лишь огромным желанием и терпением , без особых финансовых затрат . Уж я-то это точно знаю! Я не очищаю кожу головы ничем, кроме шампуня, и он со своей задачей, по моему мнению, отлично справляется . Есть среди вас такие же реалисты как я , которые не доверяют рекламе? #волосы #длинныеволосы #hairstyle #instahair #hair #haircolor #haircolorideas #longhair #haare #haarefärben #cabedelo #growhair
