There has been some wonderful responses. I know for myself there were points in time I had a long hair and it always had a feel of, well I dont want to say power exactly, that really isnt the right word, but it seemed right somehow. lol I know I hung on to my god awful mullet forever until the wife couldnt take it anymore. Im really hopeing that style comes back soon!

Hmmm, Hair with neuro-ending connectors, where have I seen that before? Oh, yes! Maybe they were watching the movie "Avatar" before emailing that message out.

People are actually responding to this with serious replies? even some questioning why our hairs stand on end?...I guess you want to question why you get goosebumps right? hair growth is prevalent throughout the animal kingdom and the only effect cutting it has on humans is psychological, and this is self inflicted.
I'm troubled that so many people don't even question the Ops post, people i thought were logical thinkers.

There’s a novel called The Way Of Wyrd, by Brian Bates. It’s partly fictional, partly an education in historically-evidenced Anglo-Saxon wisdom. In it, the Anglo-Saxon ‘Shaman’ Wulf explains to his student that hair is an outward manifestation of life-force; thus the stronger ones’ life-force, the longer the hair.
I first read that book about 4-5 years ago and have been growing my hair ever since. I suppose it just made some sort of primal, spiritual sense to me.
Point being, the sanctity of long hair is not just a Native American thing – it’s a Pagan concept that spans various ancient cultures worldwide.
