What Is A Crown?

What is a Crown? According to www.dictionary.com, a Crown is "any of various types of headgear worn by a monarch as a symbol of sovereignty, often made of precious metal and ornamented with valuable gems." It further defines a Crown as an “ornamental headgear worn by a person designated king or queen in a pageant, contest, etc.” As women, we have learned over time that our hair is our Crown; a precious object that adorns the head.


In most religions and cultures, a woman's hair carries great physical and spiritual value. For instance, in the Karelian culture, both a woman’s hair and her name were looked upon as synonymous. So tied to the woman’s identity was her hair to them that during the last stages of observance of old wedding customs the woman’s hair and name were understood as metaphors signifying the maiden's freedom that she would lose through her marriage.


We have sometimes come to be defined by this one great gift that we have, but what exactly is our hair to us, do we value it, and what would we do to make sure we keep it?


First and foremost, our hair is a form of protection for our head, the epicenter of our bodies you might say for it is our head that houses the brain, our key control center. In this sense, your hair is like a bodyguard!


The hair also helps keep the head warm and keeps the cold away from us. It also acts as a coolant when it is hot, keeping the ultraviolet rays away from the head. Our hair even transmits messages to the brain that deduced as sensory stimuli.


Although we think that the primary function of our hair is to make us look and feel beautiful, it has many more essential functions in the body. This appraisal shows the hair does indeed serve multiple roles in keeping us healthy.


As precious metals, gems or stones, this is what our hair is to us because the very function of hair is essential to our very lives on every level however you choose to examine it.


Here at MGH, our desire is to see every woman have this precious ornament readily available to them affordably, and most importantly, that you feel like a Queen that you are when you have our hair on you.
