Long or short, curly or straight, thick or fine. Love it or hate it, your hair is an important personal feature. We spend a great deal of time and money caring for our lovely locks, but hair is so much more than just a fashion statement. Hair has its own unique spiritual power and energy.

Hair, Religion and Culture

Hair, religion and culture often go together. Consider the men of the Orthodox Jewish faith (Hasidic Judaism) who wear their hair with the traditional side curls or Payots. This is done in adherence to the writings of the Torah, but wearing payots also reminds followers that there are two parts of the brain—the front part for spiritual thought and the back brain for bodily functions.

The hair covers the crown chakra—our connection to Spirit or the Higher Self. It can serve as a reminder of our connection with the Divine.



Hair is the physical manifestation of our thoughts and an extension of ourselves.

The new findings, published Dec. 22 in Cell, open new doors for understanding how the brain collects and processes information from hairy skin.

"You can deflect a single hair on your arm and feel it, but how can you tell the difference between a raindrop, a light breeze or a poke of a stick?" says David Ginty, Ph.D., professor of neuroscience at Johns Hopkins. "Touch is not yes or no; it's very rich, and now we're starting to understand how all those inputs are processed."
