    The Hair serves as an outward form of recognition of Sikh men and women

    Nature knows best what to discard or retain. Whatever is retained, is not without purpose. Hair is a gift from God, not a burden. Guru Gobind Singh Ji, in his infinite wisdom, commanded us to respect hair and refrain from tampering with it. This is the visible token of his affection for us, as well as our faith in him.

    Kesh (wearing long hair) Since all Sikhs pledge to not cut their hair, Kesh reminds Sikhs of their equality, and removes reason for pride (Ahankar). In addition, all Sikh men are required to wear a turban or Dastar (its optional for women.

    From the scientific view, keeping hair is practical because hair has many functions. It traps an insulating layer of still air just outside the skin, and thereby reduces loss of heat by radiation, hair absorbs harmful radiations from the sun, hair follicles can make androgenic hormones and Axillary hair provides larger surface area for evaporation of sweat.

    Although Sikhs do not need scientific explanations to keep hair, it is important to note that scientific explanations do indeed exist. (Sikhism can be backed by Logic and can be supported by the Laws of Science).

    The validity of the above Statement depends on "Who is talking to Whom".

    Nature decided I should have nails that are retained. Guess I'll just let them grow to infinity. Nature knows best.

    Well i dunno about that part lol! I recently cut my hair ( :eek: ) and gave it to the children for cancer cause, basically the hair is given to children who are not given that gift. Hair can be a great thing, keep on to it if you can!!
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
