    Just like everyone else, Sikh kids take showers and use soap and deodorant. Cleanliness is very important to Sikhs.

    For my son, except for his kes (hairs), I generally used a coarse sandpaper, followed by a quick once-over with a very fine sandpaper. After that, a cloth dampened with a mild solution of Woolite took off any remaining spots, leaving him nice and clean. Depending on his activities, this was either daily or twice daily.


    He was then rubbed down with a natural, pure wood polish to give him just the right colour and shine.

    As he got older and able to take care of his own hygiene, he did this himself, except for his back, which I still helped with. After all, a mother must feel useful.


    :rofl!!::whisling:

    His kes was washed with a mild natural shampoo, followed by an equally mild, natural conditioner-detangler. One a week this was preceded by an oil treatment with Amla oil mixed with extra extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil.

    :rofl!!:

    Where did the crazy question come from? Anyway Mai ji Your answer is hilarious. Remember the lines s in the poem of the Red Queen from Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

    Give pepper to your little child, and beat him when he sneezes Oh My! Such would not be permitted to day :ice:

    Narayanjoy ji,
    I thought the same, but some people really have no idea that, in most ways, we are just like everyone else, so I posted my answer.


    I have actually been asked - seriously, I think - if we ever wash our hair. YECHCH!!

    :ice:

    Yes they are asked on one of our sister forums. :D
     
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!
