Hair can be a medium to imbibe Divine consciousness and if precautions are not taken in terms of how it is cut or worn, then it can have the opposite effect of being a medium to attract negative energy.
Nature has provided hair on the human body, not only to enhance the external beauty, but also to imbibe Chaitanya (Divine consciousness) and develop sāttviktā (Purity) in the jīva (Embodied soul). This Holy text elaborates aspects like appropriate diet, exercises etc. so as to keep the hair healthy, and also provides scientific analysis on how by imbibing Chaitanya through the medium of hair, a jīva is protected from the attacks of negative energies. In an attempt to look beautiful, many women cut their hair short, casually leave their hair loose etc. One may admire such acts; however, they are an open invitation to attacks of negative energies. Along with information on avoiding harmful measures, this Holy text provides guidance on how to adopt appropriate measures pertaining to hair, such as disposing a cluster of fallen hair after two days, washing the hair with Āyurvēdic ingredients or Āyurvēdic shampoo instead of a chemical-based shampoo etc.
