Poll: Today's Live Poll
  • Scientifically, women, I think should only opt to cutting of their hair when they are living in an area known to be environmentally highly polluted. Under this condition there is much probability of pollutants like toxic gases ( ammonia, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide , vapors of other toxic chemicals, etc. ) and certain air-borne allergens getting trapped into the bunch of hair covering their head. This might lead to allergies and scalp problems. But those women who are living in pollution-free pious atmospheres they should never lower their beauty by resorting to hair-cuts like, “BOB”, “CROP”, “BOY-CUT”, “POMPADOUR”, “MOHAWK”, or the ultimate, “BRITNEY-SPEAR CUT”. A poet named W. S. LAPSLEY had, in his poetry “Parting”, had written : WHEN FRIENDS LEAVE WE’RE DOWNHEARTED---HAIR KNOWS WHAT ‘TIS TO BE PARTED ! The 18th century English poet and critic, ALEXANDER POPE, in his critical mock-heroic poem ( published in 1712 ), “The Rape of the Lock”, had similarly expressed her views against the hair-cutting by the women : “THE MEETING POINTS THE SACRED HAIR DISSEVER---FROM THE FAIR HEAD, FOR EVER, FOR EVER”. An English puritan pamphleteer of 17th century, WILLIAM PRYNNE, in his creation Histrio-Mastrix ( published in 1633 ), had stated : “Even nature herself abhors to see a woman shorn or polled ; a woman with cut hair is a filthy spectacle, and much like monster ; …… it being natural and comely to women to nourish their hair, which even God and nature have given them for a covering, a token of subjection, and a natural badge to distinguish them from men. Women ! Please don’t mind ; the latter are not my words ( G.S.J. ).
