haven't heard that terminology in a long time - it is quite remarkable references are most always made to the Bible - faith? absolutely - have you looked into noetic science? principle is the same -

You had my interest until the Holy Roller reference at the end. How is it some people always seem to find a way to say "See... the bible tells us so." I'm not trying to judge you, I respect your beliefs. But seriously... what credible evidence is there to any of it? Faith, eh!?

I love this thread! Thank you so much. I knew what I felt was right about my hair all along, but it feels good to have it confirmed like this. Western pagan tradition tells that a witches power is in her hair, that it should never be cut, or touched by another without consent, and this had become part of our cultural attitude towards women, power, sexuality and their hair. Although not normally articulated, it's considered unsuitable for older women, perhaps reaching the most powerful phase of their lives spiritually and sexually, to have long hair....perhaps because it's understood that it would make them more powerful. The pressure I get to cut mine is massive, and I flat out refuse... I also hate beyond reason when someone touches it uninvited.
A couple in interesting linkies here...

But, I have to ask one simple question:
If long hair did anything "empowering" then why do all the people
that have all the power and money in the world have short hair
or worse yet are bald ?
Stands to reason that if long hair did something special they
would all have long hair.
