I am a Gori Sikh, and I really want to do Amrit... and the man I want to spend my life with is a Punjabi Sikh and also wants me to do Amrit eventually. My question is about covering hair. Is it mandatory once you do Amrit that your hair needs to be covered at all times? I have no issues with not cutting it ( I already do not cut any hairs anymore... and I am letting the hair on my head just grow) But I am in the military, and though male Sikhs in the Canadian Forces are allowed to wear their Turban, women aren't. Women have to just keep their hair in a bun and wear the normal CF head dress. Therein lies my dilema. If hair covering is compulsory all the time once I do Amrit, I plan on wearing a turban (the round style that most women wear... once I learn how to do it) because carrying a chunni everywhere would be a little difficult to deal with. But I'd only be able to wear the turban when I am not at work. At work I'd have to wear normal CF head dress which includes a ball cap in our work uniform and in messes etc. headdress has to be removed. The other thing I am worried about outside of work would be that wearing a chunni all the time would have people thinking I am Muslim, which I don't want. So I know obviously that leaving kesh to grow, is compulsory... I couldn't find anything really on the bit about covering your head at all times once you are Amrit.... Can anyone clarify this for me? Thanks!
