Egyptians, the rich especially, cared much for their looks. Every day Egyptian women colored their cheeks, lips, and nails with dye made from a plant called henna. Men and women alike wore wigs or added false braids to beautify their own hair. Because of the blazing sun, it was crucial for Egyptians to outline their eyes with black or green paint as protection. The extremely rich were known to bathe their skin in fragrant oils. They would also use combs, hairpins, mirrors, and bronze razors.
