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!?
Uhhhhhh.......you dont consider the bible to have encoded information?
The evidence is that ancient cultures used to consider hair to have some higher significance then we presume. Their evidence was presumably based on observable occourances.

Just an interesting link I found about hair while searching. Interesting stuff and provides a contrast to much of what is being discussed here particularly as it deals with fighters.
I guess long hair is for those with "sensitivity" instead of physical force, hence the "sixth sense".
Often men who are losing their hair feel that they are losing their youth. The suggestion that being bald proves you are more virile has been undermined by medical science and is not very reassuring. History, however, tells a different story. There are many different cultures, worldwide, where baldness or the removal of part of the hair has traditionally been the mark of a warrior. Even some female warriors have chosen to remove their hair to demonstrate their warrior spirit.
