How Chinese Women Maintain Such Gorgeous Hair

How Chinese Women Maintain Such Gorgeous Hair

 Having spent half my life in an Anglo-Indian school, I’ve always wondered how my Chinese classmates managed to have such beautiful, silky smooth hair! Asking them about their secret was always a futile attempt. I only ended with up with vague, no-good answers such as “I use this shampoo or that conditioner.” Naturally, me trying out those shampoos or conditioners never yielded the same results! That meant that a lot of my time in the classroom was spent being envious of my Chinese counterpart’s lush hair.
However, I wasn’t ready to give up! When the internet age heralded itself, I began my research and soon discovered the ancient secret behind the gorgeous skin and hair. Today I’m going to share this secret with all you lovely ladies so you too can have a luxurious mane just like the Chinese!

What’s The Chinese Secret To Long And Healthy Hair?

The secret behind the strong and shiny hair of the Chinese originates in an ancient village in the heart of China known as Huangluo, which is also known as “The Long Hair Village” An interesting nickname, don’t you think?

Anyway, as the name suggests, the local populace of this place, the Yao people, are blessed with amazingly long hair. Your jaws will drop to the floor if you take a look at just how many Rapunzels exist in this tiny hamlet in the south-western region of China!
Comprising of just 400 people, most women of this 2000-year old tribe are possessors of hair that’s 3 feet long. One woman in the village, in fact, has tresses that measure a whopping 7 feet in length! The Yao women never cut their hair except once in their lifetime, which is on the day of their marriage. While that explains their fairytale-ish hair length to an extent, it doesn’t cover it entirely.

In Yao culture, long hair is a symbol of prosperity, good fortune, longevity, and health. The longer their hair is, the more blessed they are considered to be. In fact, they have strange rituals and customs surrounding their hair too.
