  1. Gur Fateh Ji, I want to become a true sikh and not one just in name and want to follow my 5 kakaars. But for that i have to stop getting my hair cut every month and i feel apprehensive about difficulties i will face in growing my hair. Can someone help me with the journey or more preferrably who has gone through this process before?? Thanks. Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fateh
  2. How can one socialise in the United Kingdom while also being a true Singh? Im 16 and I almost always get looks and It feels like it's hard to make friends here. At one point I was thinking of trimming my beard and now that I look back at it, I realise how stupid I was. I don't want to loose my identity and all that the guru's taught us.
  3. "Why do Sikhs keep a traditional look by keeping Hair and Beard? Why are they not unto date with modern?" ----- This was a question asked to me by a Chinese 1 year ago and then a hindu replied "very good question". I have found the answer to this question finally, but first I want to hear what the SikhSangat.com forum has to reply if someone asks them the same question?
  4. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I am leaving for the U.S Army in the next month (basic training for 10 weeks at a fort where I will be cut off from the rest of the world). So I wanted some tips on how to keep practicing Sikhi in an environment that is not so conducive to it. I'm having paperwork done to get the religious accommodation to keep my kes, dari and wear a dastaar. So that exception will be made (which is my biggest relief) but I have so many other questions! I would really appreciate the help from anyone but especially those who have been through the military or ar

    Calling all women for advice

    Hi. I was wondering what you wear when you don’t remove body hair, do you stick to atleast cap sleeves? What if it’s really hot like next week is meant to be hot. What do you wear in the summer? I have seen a singhni wear cropped trousers but my legs have hair. I’ve never got close enough to see if she has and doesn’t care or if she just doesn’t. What about holidays, if you went to somewhere extremely hot for a beach holiday. What would you wear? Do you go swimming? Also what do you wear at the gym? I’ve only recently grown my hair and have a lot more than I’m use to. Do you dre

    Let's face it

    Warm greetings to all the readers, only in case the moderator finds the concepts of Sikhism strong enough to answer my thoughts that I am about to share. I am a sabat-surat sikh and I love tying my turban. I know I look good in a turban and I love the community that I am fortunately a part of. I love how we have truly become one of the most vital communities in maintaining peace on the planet.I had never been bothered by the history. I respected and was completely in condolence with what happened with our community in the last 3 decades in India after the events that took place in 1984 and I a
  7. I stopped cutting a couple of months ago. My hair is about shoulder height now. I have thick hair, growing at medium-fast pace. I am young guy. My question is how long do you think it will take for my hair to reach it's final length? I looked up some info online, there's not much surprisingly, some say a 3-5 years some say more like 7+ years.. Thanks
  8. When someone asks why Sikhs don't cut their hair, most people on the internet and in real life try to be oversmart and end up giving stupid reasons. Like "hair is a gift from god and we honor that" or "it makes us stand out" or "we maintain the form that god gave us" . Even if these answers are partially true, these are not the reason we keep our hair. So why do we keep our hair? Because the Guru said so. Simple as that. [ Sikh - student (of the Guru) ] So when someone asks you, Why do you not cut your hair? Answer, because My Guru said so.
  9. Can anybody share some tips for treating trichobacteriosis without cutting the hair off? It's not as serious as it sounds and is pretty common. It is the condition wherein the hair strands near sweat glands (armpits/groin) develop a sort of coating/nodule of bacteria around them. I'm asking this because I don't wanna cut the hair off. Thanks for your help in advance!
  10. Is it for remaining pure? It seems arbitrary that God would want us to keep it for the sake of letting everything grow? What is the advantage in that, literally? I thought that hair had vitamins in but there is no research for this?

    I recently got new watches as gifts and I always have that thing in my mind that my kesh should not be damaged or broken, but when I wear the watch at once I tried tieing it tight so that the watch doesn't move around and pull hair, but I saw broken kesh would I have to pesh for this? and when I wear i watch i always feel like my kesh are getting pulled?

    Cutis verticis Gyrata

    I was combing my hair with my kanga after washing my hair and I felt bumps on my head. After looking in the mirror and looking around online, I found out I have Cutis Verticis Gyrata (CVG). The only cure is surgery! The only thing I can think of (and what my mom says) is that I tie my joora too tight and caused this. Is there any medical person that can give some advice?

    Combing eye brow hair

    Is it alright to comb eye brow hair with kangha or a hair brush/daari walla brush? It feels to me when I do, it does beadbi of the kesh and I shouldnt be doing it.

    My pyjama was inside out and I was day dreaming almost whole I put the pyjama on my arm and when I was pinching the pyjama to straighten it I felt a hair getting pulled, I've down path and ardass.
  17. I am very old like 17 and still havent learnt how to do my jooda or wear a parna ive searched on youtube many times and have tried to do it like the video says but it is too hard because i got really long hair, its getting very annoying because everyone else can do and i cant. Do you guys do jooda on the front of your head or at the back, people say its alots easier to do it at the back. If i do it at the back then how am i supposed to do the parna as it will look very unnatural as i got really long hair. And what happened to the security check thing, it wasnt working.

    Long hair problems

    I'm not trying to troll like some people on here talking about hair. I have a genuine question. My hair takes a long time to dry and I usually wash my hair during amritvela once every 2 days because My job is very physically demanding but this means it interferes with my nitnem because apparently you can't do nitnem without your head covered. So now I have a problem. Can I just cover my hair with a ramaal like mona Singhs do when they go gurdwara or does it have to be a dastaar while I do nitnem? if I'm not then can Anyone tell me some tips to dry hair super quick in like 15 minutes or

    Dastar and hair

    I was tieing dastaar and there were a lot of dead hair stuck on my dastaar as my dastaar hit the box that has all the dead hairs, I took them off and as I took carried on with tieing the dastaar I found more hairs but they were stuck so I pulled them, I suppose they were the dead hairs hence the reason why I pulled on them, would this require peshi?

    Pimple hair

    I had a pimple on my beard and was pressing it really hard with a kangha, is it considered a kureit if I broke I kesh while I was pressing the pimple, I was pressing pretty hard because the pimple wouldn't pop.

    Hair Dye

    Guru Fathe, I was wondering if anyone can advise.... I am 27 and have gone considerably white all over my head - to the point where people think I am the mother to 20 year old kids! I don't think that Sikhi allows me to dye my hair but not sure after reading a few things on the internet. Would be greatful from some advice.
  25. Here is a photo of the clips I use with my juura. A tight jura fastend tightly with these two or three locking clips under a dastar keeps even long kesh securely together if ever dastar gets knocked off.
