A Hair Raising Truth: More Hair Means More Care
Once upon a time (I beg you to read my own story) my own hair used to be full-grown up to thighs. I was in class 10th. My mother used to wash them with a special concoction. That used to be prepared with the overnight soaked mixture of ritha-shikakai-amla. In her weekly ventures, each Sunday morning mom's working field in highest priority was none other than my scalp. Though, only smelling the concoction was enough to turn all my senses on, the credit of my charged brain goes to mother's candid hand-work on my scalp!
My head bowing before her, she generously pouring the lukewarm mixture over my head and finally ears listening to those reasons why she never was in favor of growing my hairs long.
Once the hairs seemed apparently clean, the rinsing process required me to do Sirsasana inside a bucket full of water. Nevertheless, my number of transitions from mountain pose to Uttanasana inside the bucket went in vain because concoction-residue still remained in Eagle Pose with my hair strands.
This was mother's hard work, the concoction-effect or the inversions, my hairs saw the best of the both world during that time.
My envious friends made me realize quite often that where today my hairs stand (read hang), are due to my mom's sincere, regular hard work and I have no reason to feel proud of...☹️ And now thanks for reading my story.
Through sharing my story, I want to bring your focus on the quantity, quality, or say Health of one's hair. While long and voluminous hairs require lots of effort to maintain, they are the subtle indicators of your good health.
Though rearing of these health imperatives never been a cat-walk, yet, you can always nurture them to add to your beauty and confidence. Once again thank all the blessings the science of yoga stores for us which can enrich all the aspects of our life.
