English term or phrase: hair
Hi.

I simply mean the hair on the human head in its totality.

Please give a guide to the pronunciation. I know Russian, so feel free to refer to that language.

Best wishes

Explanation:
It is very difficult to give you the guide to the pronunciation of this word, because there is a word meaning "water" with very close pronunciation.
But you may pronounce it like shorter "oo" in "book" followed by "s" in "bus".

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  unur: Agree with translation but not with pronunciation. The pronunciation is closer to 'ou' in soup. They also say that it is closer to 'ü' as in German but I think the German one sounds quite different. Please refer to my reference sent to you separately.
