Sikhs And Hair Loss


Recommended Posts

Does growing your hair prevent hair loss? I want to know how many Sikh males (who don't cut their hair) have Male Pattern Baldness (MPB)? Any of you out there?

I was wandering if MPB which is present in many a male is due to them cutting their hair? For example, when the hair is cut, the body works to regrow the hair (as per Sikhi, there is a purpose for this). If it keeps getting cut, maybe the body responds by not bothering to keep trying to grow it anymore? Maybe a stupid theory but I was just wandering.

If there are a lot of Pughwala sikhs who have MPB then the above theory is probably wrong.

Thanks

the genetic component is passed down from the Nana and father if Nana ji was takla then you have over 50% chance of being the same , but if dad is too then rises to 75% -80% ... however my hubby has longer hair than me , was in 75%- 80% category but is not as bad as his Nana ji , and has not started treatment with special oils (black castor oil ) or shampoos . I would say the type of shampoos matter as too many sulphates will irritate the scalp and cause inflammation and loosening of hair bulb . just keep your copper, magnesium and vitamin Bs up and you will hold on to it . Anyway isn't it to do with excess testosterone getting converted , maybe pumping iron doing sports would mop up that so MPB isn't triggered because the guys I know who do natural BB and have MBP in the family do not have MBP themselves.

Who said that?[/quote

Who said that?

I was reading something that was arguing that Sant Jee didn't become shaheed in 1984 and it said that Because Sant Jee did a lot of simran they did not have a lot of hair. Then they showed a picture of Sant Jees shaheedi saroop and in the picture he is on a block of ice with his kesh open. I think Baba Joginder Singh had said that

I see. It's difficult to say for certain because I'm sure you know a few people who do a fair amount of Simran yet have heavy quantities of kesh. When it comes to males I think mpb plays its part. For a balanced test of the theory "More simran, less kesh" I think we'd have to ask bibiyan who partake in heavy duty simran, because they're not prone to mpb I think.
