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.

    • Generally speaking (I'm not making this about your particular experience), if her last rites were performed according to Sikh maryada, then she wouldn't "be" with anyone, much less in a specific country with another person. That's what happens to so-called ghosts or spirits who haven't been able to pass over; they cling to people they loved or with whom they had an affinity when alive. Sikhi states, from the various things I've read over the years, that the worst thing that can possibly happen for the deceased is for their essence to remain tied to a living person or people. This would suggest the final paats, ardaasa, etc., conducted in the name of the deceased didn't work or fulfil their intended purpose. Then you have to ask yourself, "why?"
    • All I know its difficult,  I'm here if u need me

    • Waheguru Ji We just had a very unexpected death that has shock us to the core.  Waheguru Ji..its sooo hard to process it. it doesn't even feel real   Why?!
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-58996186 Vikings had a settlement in North America exactly one thousand years ago, centuries before Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas, a study says.     IMAGE SOURCE,GETTY IMAGES Image caption,Replica Viking homes and other items at L'Anse aux Meadows, a Unesco world heritage site in N Scientists say a new dating technique analysing tree rings has provided evidence that Vikings occupied a site in Newfoundland, Canada, in 1021AD. It has long been known that Europeans reached the Americas before Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. But this is the first time researchers have suggested an exact date. Writing in the journal Nature, scientists said they had analysed the tree rings of three pieces of wood cut for the Norse settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows. They said that using an atmospheric radiocarbon signal produced by a dated solar storm as a reference, they were able to pin the "exact felling year of the tree" to 1021. Such a solar storm - a huge blast of radiation from the Sun that hits Earth - was known to have taken place in the year 992AD, the scientists said. This enabled them to determine a more accurate date than previous estimates for the camp of about 1000AD. "The association of these pieces with the Norse is based on detailed research previously conducted by Parks Canada," the study says, adding that there was clear evidence the sampled wood had been modified by metal tools. It adds that the L'Anse aux Meadows camp was a base from which other locations, including regions further south, were explored. The authors say the discovery represents a definitive point for future research into the initial consequences of transatlantic activity, such as the transfer of knowledge and the potential exchange of genetic information and pathologies. Dr Colleen Batey, a Viking specialist associated with the Institute for Northern Studies in Scotland, says the study does not necessarily suggest Vikings were not in the area in 1000AD. "It suggests that the short-lived settlement was active in about 1021 when wood was being worked at the site, probably related to either building or ship repair," she says. "As an archaeologist, I might interpret this as one stage of the occupation activity, not necessarily the first or indeed the last." L'Anse aux Meadows, a Unesco world heritage site on the northernmost tip of the island of Newfoundland, is the first and only known site established by Vikings in North America and the earliest evidence of European settlement in the New World. Radiocarbon dating is a technique that measures residual concentrations of a radioactive isotope of carbon (carbon-14) present in an object. Carbon-14 decays over time and measuring how much is left tells you the age of a sample.
