For those of us who can't go to a hair salon during the pandemic, Louise Fairman is a heroine. Her hair is almost as long as her dress. A war widow with 6 children, she couldn't have had time to take care of that mane!

Helen Norvell My hair used to be 4 feet long. You just use shampoo for the scalp, where it gets greasy. The rest just needs conditioner. 😉

They didn't wash like we do all the time. You dont have to wash it all at once. Mostly closest to the head where it gets oily

Of course she could. During the day it would usually have been put up; from the look of those regulated waves, it was probably in braids before she let it down for this image. Every night, she would have brushed and plaited it before bed. Once or twice a week, wash it in the bath and brush dry in front of the fire. She wasn't dyeing it, powdering it, or curling it; that makes it very easy to care for.

Cindy Nelson I agree. When I had extremely long hair it was easy to take of. Now that it's short, it requires too much maintenance for my liking.

Cindy Nelson I like your knowledgeable comment on the care the lady would take with her hair. It could be an excerpt from a fiction piece.

I wouldn't speak to the chemicals ppl used. They had no idea how bad many of things they used were. Who knows what was in the product she cleaned her hair with. And below the waist it looks as if more than half of it has broken off. Not healthy looking at all below the waist

It was the fashion to have long hair. If she had wanted to trim the ends, l am sure she had a handy clever in her kitchen. Hehe

My granddaughter has braids to her waist. She doesn’t undo it every night nor every time she washes it. She only undoes it when it looks ragged. Then it looks wavy like the lady in the picture.

Deirdre Bonnycastle Women and girls used to be taught to brush their hair "a hundred strokes every night to keep it healthy and shiny." These days we know that much brushing causes breakage! But back in this lady's lifetime ...

Cindy Nelson GD doesn’t brush it because it hurts and pulls out her hair. She only combs it using a detangle lotion.

Deirdre Bonnycastle ooh, curly hair? That's exactly right, if so.

Cindy Nelson They did not mind it looking oily, and did not wash it often. In the pioneer days, hair was washed once a month.

True. My grandmother had beautiful red hair that she braided and coiled on her head. her hair had a lovely curl and wispy curls escaped. She wore it like that until she died at 92. it was white by then and still beautiful. I wore my very straight strawberry blond hair to my waist in the 70s. Often braided and wrapped on my head for convenience. It was easy to manage.

Back then a lot of women had extremely long hair. And they only washed it once a month.

Look at the ripples through her hair where she kept it pinned up. Can you imagine doing that long hair by yourself everyday .

I used to have braids to my waist. Long hair is not that hard to take care of.

Which war? I mean, the photo props ARE geometric shapes! This isn't as old of a photo as the coloring leads you to believe.
