I have had every length from VERY short to the current just-over-shoulderblade and I have to say short hair may need a lot of care as some styles need quite a bit of styling to look good and all of them have to be cut at much quicker intervals to look good. I never had the problem with longer styles where I'd just go to the hairdresser once every 6 months to get rid of split ends.

I started dyeing my hair when I was 12 and haven't seen my natural hair colour, a medium ash blonde, ever since. Recently I went back to red, first with toners to give my bleached hair a break and last week with permanent dye again.

Occasionally I am toying with going short again as I never do much with my "long" hair, but as my hair grows so slowly I know I would regret chopping it all off again.

Well I searched online to fine a source for you, since I'm not confident enough in myself to pontificate on my own. Found a jackpot!

Why Do Jewish Women Cover Their Hair?

Make sure you read the article and don't skip words, read the comments, and follow the link at the end of the article. It's all related, it won't take long, and it will definitely answer your question in full. I am not a Rabbi, which is why I direct you to this website - and the 'Scholar Online' can probably answer any additional questions you have as well!

Um. Not being of Islamic faith, I have no idea. This is our reason, you'd have to ask one of them for theirs.

I don't have my notes with me but Islamic women generally cover their bodies so that men pay attention to what they say and to their personalities rather than their body. I'm not sure if there is a separate reason behind hair specifically.

That actually has nothing to do with the reasoning behind Burqas and other islamic dress. In fact, the Quran doesn't really suggest wearing them, either. It's a tradition born of a series of verses surrounding personal modesty in dress.

"Say to the believing of men and women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do." [24:30]
"And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms ... " [24:31]
"O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them. That will be better, so that they may be recognized and not harassed. Allah (SWT) is ever Forgiving, Merciful." [33:59]

*Shrug*

Just thought I'd point that out.

Huh. That is completly different to how my RE teacher described it...Of course this is the same teacher who told me I was definatly going to get an A on an essay that turned out to be a C.

But we're off topic now. Um...I washed my hair.

Ha! That happened to us, too - but not with an essay, just the entire blasted course. RE is a fickle subject.

What's RE?

Question to people at large: How easy is it for your hair to curl? I mean without products. If I twist my hair to wrap it in a bun, it'll stay in the twist even after I let it down. And even when the majority of it straightens out, the last six inches or so stay curled together. Anyone else have that problem? It's annoying.

I figured it had to be something like that.

I skipped my haircut appointment and decided to break an arm instead. Wondered where I was all day? Blasted doctor said it was a 'Greenstick break.' That's supposed to be easier to mend.

Believe me, they are. I got a greenstick fracture in fifth grade. Pobracita! Hope it heals soon.

At least you didn't chop your hair, too!

Ha, I'll have to reschedule for another day. But my stylist will think this is all too convenient. I'm notorious for getting out of haircut appointments.

Easy as a spring.
But then, it's naturally curly so that probably doesn't count.
