ما هي صفات الشعر الجميل؟

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today Doug and Rasha talk about straight hair.

Billions of dollars are spent every year by black women around the world on hair straightening products.

Some women do this to try and make their hair more manageable so that they can style it in the way they would like it to be.

Other women do this because they feel that straight hair is more beautiful and presentable than coarse hair.

Chemicals that are used to straighten or relax hair are expensive and can cause a lot of damage to hair and skin.

A new film by the famous American actor Chris Rock called "Good Hair" reveals some of the extraordinary lengths that some women go to.

One of the reasons that made Chris Rock make this movie was a question that his daughter asked him.

He said that one day she came
up to him and asked him why she didn't have 'good hair'.

By that she meant why didn't she have hair that was straight, long and shiny.

But not all women will straighten their hair because they think that it just looks better like that.

One lady in Kenya told the BBC that she straightens her hair because it makes it easier to comb and maintain.

Of course there are also women who do nothing with their hair and are very proud of the way it looks naturally.

Actually i prefer the straight hair for many causes:
The first because my hair is straight, and many people envy me for that.
The second cause is the straight hair is much more beautiful than the curly hair or some thing like third you can easily comb the straight hair.
Lastly by your straight hair you can easily find a girlfriend.

Since i was child, i wanted so much to have long hair. I did every thing people told me about to make my hair longer but when i grew up, i knew that it is genetic. There is nothing i can do to make it longer. I still believe that good hair should be long and smooth. I wish that my future husband likes my short hair.
Doaa , Egypt
