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). In an attempt to look beautiful, many women cut their hair short, move around with their hair hanging loose, etc. A jīva 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 of a cluster of fallen hair after two days, washing the hair with Āyurvēdic ingredients or Āyurvēdic shampoo instead of a chemical-based shampoo, etc.
