Are you in the know when it comes to looking after your hair? Make a test by checking your hair-care knowledge against the questions in this quiz from the Stay Healthy Blog.

1. You're caught in the rain without rain hat or umbrella . . . and have a date in an hour. Quickest hair-saver:

(a) Towel hair vigorously until almost dry, set and spray.

(b) Comb hair into shape while wet, let dry.

(c) Set hair wet and brush out while still damp.

ANSWER: (a) is best if you must set, (b) works well for naturally wavy hair or straight styles.

2. You notice your hair is becoming dull and lackluster. To bring back its healthy shine:

(a) Brush religiously with two natural-bristle brushes.

(b) Give your hair a treatment of warm oil and hot towels.

(c) Check your general health and diet, being sure to get enough rest, outdoor exercise, and plenty of green, leafy vegetables, lean meat, fruit, and milk.

ANSWER: All three will help, but pay particular attention to (c).

3. On an impulse you ask your hairdresser for a very short haircut . . . and find to your dismay it doesn't spit you at all. Solution:

(a) Stay away from your salon until your hair has returned to its normal length, then have it restyled.

(b) Visit your salon regularly, having your hair shaped and restyled all through the growing-out process.

(c) Keep the short cut, hoping you'll get used to it eventually.

ANSWER: (b). You'll look and feel better.

4. You have short fair hair, blue eyes, and you wear glasses. Your most attractive hairstyle is:

(a) . A fluffy hairstyle, not too long, with curled ends turning up all round, a bit of a bang on the forehead.

(b) Hair pulled straight back from the face, and ears and arranged in a French twist at the back.

(c) A neat and simple style, brushed back smoothly from the brow, lifted a trifle on top, and with soft circlets on the temples.

ANSWER: (c) You have a fair amount of leeway here and can easily ring the changes while keeping the general "line" intact. Always avoid too severe lines, which can make a girl who wears glasses look old-maidish. Avoid bushes of bangs on the forehead, too.

5. Your hair is candle-straight and you've always worn it hanging free. You want to continue to do so, but feel dubious about its suitability. To make up your mind:

(a) Study the bone structure of your face.

(b) Have your straight hair cut and shaped to suit your features.

(c) Have a light permanent wave to give your locks a more abundant look if they seem to lack fullness.

ANSWER: Pay attention to all three, otherwise straight hair is likely to look old-hat.

6. Hair must be kept clean, but how do you decide what shampoo to use?

(a) Just keep on experimenting until you find the one that seems to work all right.

(b) Consult an expert about the best type of shampoo for your particular hair.

(c) Consider the type of water you use.

ANSWER: (b) and (c) are your best picks. In soft water almost any shampoo works nicely. If water is hard, you get glossier results with a soapless shampoo, either liquid or cream.
