The Truth About Hair and Why Indians Would Keep Their Hair Long

This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Viet Nam War .

 Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Vietnam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.

 In the early nineties, Sally [name changed to protect privacy] was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Most of them had served in Vietnam. Sally said, "I remember clearly an evening when my husband came back to our apartment on Doctor's Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands.

 Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example.

 As I read the documents, I learned why. It seems that during the Vietnam War special forces in the war department had sent undercover experts to comb American Indian Reservations looking for talented scouts, for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They were especially looking for men with outstanding, almost supernatural, tracking abilities. Before being approached, these carefully selected men were extensively documented as experts in tracking and survival.

 With the usual enticements, the well proven smooth phrases used to enroll new recruits, some of these Indian trackers were then enlisted. Once enlisted, an amazing thing happened. Whatever talents and skills they had possessed on the reservation seemed to mysteriously disappear, as recruit after recruit failed to perform as expected in the field. Serious causalities and failures of performance led the government to contract expensive testing of these recruits, and this is what was found.

 When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistently that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer 'sense' the enemy, they could no longer access a 'sixth sense', their 'intuition' no longer was reliable, they couldn't 'read' subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information. So the testing institute recruited more Indian trackers, let them keep their long hair, and tested them in multiple areas. Then they would pair two men together who had received the same scores on all the tests. They would let one man in the pair keep his hair long, and gave the other man a military haircut.

 Then the two men retook the tests. Time after time the man with long hair kept making high scores. Time after time, the man with the short hair failed the tests in which he had previously scored high scores. Here is a Typical Test: The recruit is sleeping out in the woods. An armed 'enemy' approaches the sleeping man. The long haired man is awakened out of his sleep by a strong sense of danger and gets away long before the enemy is close, long before any sounds from the approaching enemy are audible. In another version of this test the long haired man senses an approach and somehow intuits that the enemy will perform a physical attack. He follows his 'sixth sense' and stays still, pretending to be sleeping, but quickly grabs the attacker and 'kills' him as the attacker reaches down to strangle him.

This same man, after having passed these and other tests, then received a military haircut and consistently failed these tests, and many other tests that he had previously passed. So the document recommended that all Indian trackers be exempt from military haircuts. In fact, it required that trackers keep their hair long."

 Comment: The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of human and animal at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animal to survive. Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole.The body has a reason for every part of itself. Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.

 Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.

 When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out . Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration.

 Conclusion: In searching for solutions for the distress in our world, it may be time for us to consider that many of our most basic assumptions about reality are in error. It may be that a major part of the solution is looking at us in the face each morning when we see ourselves in the mirror. The story of Sampson and Delilah in the Bible has a lot of encoded truth to tell us. When Delilah cut Sampson's hair, the once undefeatable Sampson was defeated.

  1. Interesting article. There is only one way that I wear my hair. Short.

  2. Thank you... Funny I gave myself a hair cut last night, this makes complete sense to me, maybe thats why gypsy palm /tarot readers are always shown with long hair!

  3. Thank you for this article! I now know why when I cut my hair short (the only time)I lost my psychic abilities. My hair is back down to my waist now and I have not shaved my legs in a year. My abilities have since then returned and now I know why. :)

  4. Your welcome...I found the article pretty interesting. I have talked to a lot of people about it and they all seem to have the same consensus.

  5. Bit of a problem for natural baldness though ;0)

  6. I would argue that perhaps what we view as "natural baldness" is in fact a very unnatural occurence brought on by emotional, physical, psychic, and environmental stressors.

    As a practicing Buddhist, it made me wonder about the tradition of the monastics shaving their heads...

  7. I don't buy it - something is going on here. This seems supernatural and its not. These are my suspicions. I think that long hair opens the pores in the head - this larger surface area and the attendant dangers to the body also cause the body to become more hypersensitive. The body is defending itself from natural attack - the pores are wider therefore allowing more pathogens to directly enter the brain. When we cut the hair I suspect that the decreased weight plus other factors cause the hair follicle regions to contract instead of expanding. This contraction I think tells the body that whatever hypersensitivity is required isn't required as when the body experiences greater exposure. I think this is about hormones and physiological sensitivity. I think those factors lead to changes in brain chemistry which give humans so-called "supernatural abilities. I don't think its supernatural at all. It's as natural as graying hair and why some people are gray by 20 and some are never gray - there are chemical forces at work. What we don't yet understand are the interdependence between physiological change and the impact that has on several sub-systems including the brain. The complete processes - stem to stern so to speak haven't yet been mapped or are in very early stages. The PET scan is probably the most advanced measure we have of what the brain does "real-time" and frankly - I suspect in 50 or 100 years scientists will wonder - gosh - how did they figure out what they did with something so primitive. They'll be in awe at our ignorance and at our gravitas.

  8. Thank you for sharing this fascinating article. In many cultures and traditions there are beliefs and myths about hair including many haircutting rituals.

    Personally, I think our Western culture has become so disconnected from nature--both of the Earth and to our own bodily awareness-- that we may be overlooking something significant about our hair. Hair is an extension of our crown chakra and since energy radiates within and beyond the walls of our physical being, I can't help but wonder how hair affects our body and awareness.

  9. Amazing story, I so enjoyed reading it and it really made me think. I usually wear my hair long, but there was one time in my life where I wore it short, and I made all sorts of bad decisions in that time... this makes that make more sense. Thanks for sharing this!

  10. If human beings had never evolved to desire to cut the hair covering their heads and shave to hair covering their bodies, body hair would continue to grow naturally -ie long and plentiful. It is, therefore, unnatural to crop/shave hair for the benefit of fashion. Hair styling is forcing our hair to grow in such a way that is against nature's will, which probably has a knock -on effect on human behaviour. Incidentally, did the behaviour of Native Americans sporting a "Mohawk" hairstyle differ to those with long hair?

  11. I don't disagree with this article - we are sensitive in ways we can't imagine and MANY things we "modern" humans do interfere with those sensitivities. I would like to point out, however, that Native Americans wore their hair in many, many different ways before contact with Europeans. And when we look at indigenous cultures from all over the world we see an even wider range of hair styles. Yes, cutting our hair probably interferes with our sensitivity, but our general blatant oblivion is probably due to lots of other factors, too :)


We love hearing from you.....
