Hair Combing Ceremony (Shang Tou)
Traditionally, for some Chinese dialect group, at the dawn of the wedding day or the night before the wedding, the bride will be bathed in water added with pamelo, lime leaves etc to cleanse the body. She will put on new clothes and shoe. Then she will sit before a set of long-feng (dragon and phoenix) candles in front of the mirror, to have her hair combed. A woman that has enjoyed reasonable good fortune in life will help to comb her hair. The act of combing the bride's hair is to symbolize a long and lasting marriage. The hair combing ceremony includes four blessings:
1st combing represents from start of the marriage until the end (togetherness all your life)
2nd combing represents harmonious relationship until old age (harmony in your marriage)
3rd combing represents having many sons and grandsons (blessed with many children and grandchildren)
4th combing represents monetary wealth for a long and lasting marriage. (blessed with longevity)

In the very old days, the groom also have a similar hair combing procedure, but this is no longer practiced anymore.

If one does not go through the hair combing ritual, she should at least display the combination of items as a decorative in her bedroom on a table to ensure a successful marriage because each item gives a special meaning.
