I love the theory that our hair is a spiritual part of us. I’ve always seen hair as part of our crown chakra and our energy system, it absorbs energy and expresses who we are (one of the reason I loced mine in 2001)…
I know many friends who will only use natural products for their hair and let certain people touch their hair because of this (me included lol!) – And trimming or getting a hair cut is like a beautiful extension of our spiritual Self.
Around the world, hair also symbolises many different belief systems and it’s also no surprise that when we go through changes in our life, a lot of people choose to change their hair style/colour/etc to mark a new beginning or a fresh start 🙂
Amazing article that looks into this: “Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved ‘feelers’ or ‘antennae’ that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex. Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut. ” (read the full article here)
