Hair and more precisely… the lack of and cutting of… thereof… is Shiro’s latest seek and search. Travelling through time… vis History… and Herstory… too. Where from our beliefs shaped and styled.?. About HAIR… that is.!. We stop by several olden Our World Legends and Traditions from around our Earth who sharply speak of such matters… well… a lil’ short anyway.

 

A PEDESTAL. THE GODDESS. FIRST ON… HEREIN.

 

The Cutting of Hair and Head Shaving oft follows the dictates of Culture, Tradition, Choice, Religion and even Medicine.

Taken for granted.

 

Symbolically,.. perhaps physically… too.

 

 

With such as the renowned Shaolin Temple continuing the Tradition.

My…

…Hair Today,..

…Gone Tomorrow.

 

(Music Link)

 

May well be so indeed it seems.

The Legends. Uncut.

and herein;..

…sharpen and broaden our perspective on the History… and Herstory… too.

 

The Mystery,.. humble or not so…

…of our Head of Hair.

In and of,.. several of Our World Legends.

 

TORNADO TOLERANCE TRAINING O KUNOICHI.?. OR JUST… FEELING THE WIND UNDER THY WINgggss…?… WTFRICK… YOUR WINGS JUST BLEW OFF…!!! FUN. WORDPLAY. Herein…

 

HAIR.

THE FOLLICLE.

THE FACTS;..

 

Hair is dead per se.

Cannot reproduce,.. though somewhat absorbent.

Can be turned into a fertiliser for slow growing Plant-life… sort of.

 

Loves eggs and beer absorption though,..

…whilst still attached.

 

When such emo attachments as Fear, Surprise or the Flee-or-Fight Mode triggered…

…it stands to attention and quivers… too.

 

A ” …chill…” will cause similar:..

The muscle;..

…arrestor pili…” (…the “…erector of hair…“),..

…tugs at the follicle raising a tiny mound of flesh in the process.

Like a seedling and soil,.. follicle/shaft and skin.

 

Wet hair can be  stretched over 50% in length before breakage.

 

Will act as a slight cushion,.. a protective layer for the skull.

Will aid insulation… a lil’.

Alerts and registers the slightest skin touch.

 

Help shade and protect eyes… lips too.

Dust filter action in nose and ears.

Channel sweat away from eyes and sensitive areas.

 

Can increase it’s length to a mtr+… in time.

 

In days of yore along with other sources,..

…our hair was also used in Cultural/Weaponry Forms applicable.

FROM HAIRY TO HOARY…

Oft plentiful by Birth.

Foetal hair growth aft. approx. 3 mths.

 

4 Types of Hair-growth.

  • Lanugo : growth diminish prior to Birth.
  • Lanugo 2 : growth diminish app. 3 mths. after Birth.
  • Vellus : …hangs around… as long as YOU.
  • Terminal : …varied…

 

LANUGO’s are… Baby Hairs per se.

VELLUS is the fine, downy hair we all have… mostly… all over.

TERMINAL is the norm Head (+other areas) of Hair.

 

Type decided by area, requirement, age and so forth.

Fineness/Thickness decided by diameter/shape of follicle.

 

Follicle Growth Pattern…(even/non-even),..

…decides straight/curly-wavy.

O KUNOICHI… YOUR FOLLICLES ARE QUITE STRAIGHT… AND TO THE POINT IT SEEMS… CARE FOR A CROP.?. CROP CIRCLE COLLECTION THAT IS… Herein. The Mystery. The Slide-show.

Puberty and associated changes,..

…changes the Hair properties and development…

…to more strategic areas applicable.

 

Dandruff is mainly scalp skin dying off,.. skin shedding per se.

Normal ‘cept when in overdrive vis puberty,..

…skin inflammation/issues and other causes.

 

Many causes of Hair loss including aging, chemicals, medical procedures, diet changes, skin conditions and so forth.

Oh…

 

…Scissors… too.

 

The Pursuit of… Knowledge… can be Dangerous… ask a Scientist,.. The Oracle… too. The Legend. Herein.

 

LONG + LEGENDARY… OR KNOT…

 

Excepting and aside the RAPUNZEL (Longer Hair=ESCAPE…) Type Legends;

…the majority involve Scissors and a dramatic…

…and major Haircut.

 

Trims… not so much.

 

A Beheading… also.

 

  • Joining the Military :
  • Max Trim… stubble basically.
  • Scissored doing join-up procedures.
  • Traditional… slight Medical.
  • Novice/Newbie/Grunt approach
  • Maintains conformity and sameness also.

 

  • Samson v Delilah :
  • Long Hair symbolising Strength yielding to the Feminine.
  • Delilah scissored it during the night.
  • Philistines took advantage… till it grew back.
  • Poor Philistines.
  • Samson refused another Trim.
  • Tore down the Temple… collapsing on the Philistines,..
  • …Samson… too. Hair today… gone ‘moro it seems.

 

  • Salome v John :
  • Megalomaniacs… seems… there’s always 1.
  • Salome + co. wanted more than just Johnboy’s Hair.
  • HIS HEAD…
  • … ON A PLATTER.
  • Hopefully… not done with Scissors.
  • She danced for the King… swayed hips…+ swayed him.
  • Got to make a request.
  • Poor John. A Platter.
  • White Coat with Straps,.. a Strait… indeed,..
  • …for hip swaying Salome ta much.

  • The Shaven Head type;

Such Olden Traditions as per the Shaolin, Buddhists and several Religious Orders require sacrificing to the Scissor and Shaver.

The shave can be total or just a section… such as a Tonsure. The reasonings are similar to the Military ascribed earlier. Along with applicable Clothing this can enhance…

  • A new beginning/novice.
  • A sense of equality, sameness, conformity etc.
  • Humility… of ego and so forth.
  • A surrender to applicable Vows.
  • A surrender to the Divine potential.

 

  • The SMART…  Beard..!?..
  • …aka… The Wisdom Beard.

So,.. How do you know an Ancient Queen was smart.?.

  1. Our World Legends… tell you so… and/or…
  2. Her Portfolio Pics include facial hair.
  • At a certain time and place… in Ancient Egypt
  • A Beard… meant an IQ in overdrive.
  • All geniuses grew one… or had one made.
  • As a Symbol.
  • Of a Hairy and Hoary Wisdom indeed,..
  • …in deed and in fact… too.

 

NIKKŌ is simply unforgettable. Uniquely situated linking Nature and City. NIKKO. The LEGENDS. The TEMPLES. The RED GATE. FESTIVAL OF THE BOW. The BRIDGE. The… RAIN… too. photocredit/thanks:wallpaperbetter

 

  • A FINAL… CUT.
  • THE… FINAL CUT.
