It's documented, across the globe, that there is cultural and spiritual significance attached to hair (past and present cultures) ... As with many things that are considered as part of the "whole" or the "balance" these things have relevance and meaning.
Whether the military study/experiments are true or myth - that's a good question...
Another thought: these experiments were conducted on young men therefore it's reasonable to presume that their hair was virgin hair (i.e. not bleached, dyed, etc.) So another consideration would be whether these "connections" would be diminished or not when the hair was uncut, but otherwise altered (i.e. bleached, dyed with chemicals) vs (dyed with natural things like plants or berries) not to mention gender influences, as well ... there must be individual experiences out there. Anyone?

I thought the reason why monks/soldiers/etc keep their head bald was an attempt to not have everyone stand out from one another...
Plus, didn't the old Chinese, martial arts practicing monks have really long hair - tied in a tail? And what about the time of dynasties? Weren't people required to have long hair, having to grow it from childhood?
Does anyone have any good advice how to keep it from getting frizzy (mine is curly) and coarse once it gets long?

Well as a hockey fan I am quite aware of "playoff beards." It all seems to make sense now.
Oh yes, I didn't even think about that.
