Men in the country have appealed to the government to exempt hairstylists and include them in the essential workers to enable their spouse maintain good hygiene for pleasure.
According to them, the women weavons, braided hair, coloured hair, wig cups among other styles have kept long on their hair, thus the stench that emanates from their hair disrupt the pleasurable moment they were having during lockdown.
Speaking exclusively to Spot On News in Accra on Saturday, the married men complained that their wives hair had become dirty and needed refreshing style.
They noted that dirty hair leads to headache and other related ailments, hence were scared that after the lockdown their wives would develop symptoms of new ailments and stressed the need for hairstylists to be exempted.
They observed that stylists help to keep personal hygiene, improve appearance of women and provide comfort.
Mr Kofi Oheneba stated that although he support the government for the current lockdown but the hygienic appearance of his wife was getting complicated each day.
He bemoaned that he did not have interest in women who do not alter their physical appearance, especially having the same hair-do for weeks.
Mr Oheneba explained that due to the sun, women hair develop heat which needed constant washing and styling, stressing that “every two weeks i give my wife money to renew her style but cannot do it now because hairdressing shops are closed.”
Mr Ishmael Nkrumah told the site that as for him he could cut his hair, or find a neighbour to shape his hair-cut but same could not be said about women.
He said if a woman did not get a professional hairstylist to alter their appearance for a beautiful hairstyle that complement their looks they become scary.
Hairdressing, Mr Thomas Ackah noted could accent good features, or draw attention away from undesirable characteristics, it enhances attractiveness of their spouse and make them enjoy a refined time with them.
He urged government to take second look at his decision about hairdressers and allow them to work to bring out esthetic features of their wives for healthy relationship.
