anyone know of any tefillos to stop someone from baldingAugust 22, 2021 2:48 am at 2:48 am #2001756rationalParticipant
Had to laugh at this one. But seriously, the proper tefillah is:
יהי רצון מלפניך אאו”א שכשם שנושרים שערותיי, כן ינשרו ממני כל עוונותי.August 22, 2021 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #2001852AviraDeArahParticipant
I think one should say שלא אהיה כקרח ועדתו
Besides railing kanau’us i actually do have a sense of humorAugust 22, 2021 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #2001886
יהי רצון שלא יהי’ קרח מכאן וקרח מכאןAugust 22, 2021 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #2001915Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
It is such a sod that Eliahu did not even teach the proper kavanos to Elisha, leading to untimely death of several union thugs in Yericho.August 22, 2021 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #2001903FrumWhereParticipant
The question can be taken in a more serious vein. After all, even though balding is not a debilitating condition, it still is not desirous for most people. As such, a proper response would be to encourage one troubled by his balding to recognize that Hashem makes people bald for a reason, and it is probably something to thank Hashem for rather than resent Him forAugust 22, 2021 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #2001907GadolhadorahParticipant
Be very careful since HKB”H does not want you making a bracha lvatalla. Chazal bring down that those who are follically challenged have an easier time learning since there is less vegetation limiting the flow of divrei torah into their heads.August 23, 2021 2:23 am at 2:23 am #2001981mobicoParticipant
Nope. But maybe you weren’t careful enough with your Kavanos when you begged Hashem “כלה שעיר וחותנו”.August 23, 2021 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm #2002198
I will explain mobico’s sense of humor. In the selichos ‘ישראל נושע בה is mentioned the above passage which refers to the sair, goat, Eisov and chosno, his father-in-law, Yishmoel should be destroyed. Sair also means hair being destroyed.August 24, 2021 12:37 am at 12:37 am #2002303Coffee178Participant
Get a shorter haircut and you will look more manly. Be aware there is a discussion in halacha how short you allowed to go. Ask your Docor what he thinks, depending on your age and lifestyle it could be a symptom of testosterone or vitamin D deficiency. Happy balding!August 24, 2021 10:01 am at 10:01 am #2002403hujuParticipant
The bracha for safe travel will reduce the balding of tires.August 24, 2021 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #2002457Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
> bracha for safe travel will reduce the balding of tires.
probably only if you checked the pressure before travel and drove carefully. I doubt that bracha absolves of personal responsibility.August 24, 2021 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #2002584rightwriterParticipant
Stop using head and shouldersAugust 25, 2021 10:08 am at 10:08 am #2002752Coffee178Participant
@rightwriter forget head and shoulders. The whole shampoo industry is a scam. Shampoo is unnecessary and eats away at the follicles. By the way, you could use most popular soaps and bodywashes as a substitute for detergent. I haven’t washed my head with shampoo in three years.October 1, 2021 11:44 am at 11:44 am #2011314☕️coffee addictParticipant

You know more than me so I’m not arguing just asking but isn’t עשו called שעיר because of his marriage into them and that he got הר שעיר (and also because he was hairy)?October 1, 2021 12:14 pm at 12:14 pm #2011324☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
The whole shampoo industry is a scam.
That’s why it’s called “sham”.October 1, 2021 1:50 pm at 1:50 pm #2011343
coffee addict, maybe sair is not because of a goat.October 2, 2021 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #2011487ShtarkButRelatableParticipant
Why would you want to stop, everyone knows seeing a bald man is considered good luckOctober 2, 2021 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #2011548GadolhadorahParticipant
“The whole shampoo industry is a scam..”
Not if you carefully followed the instructions on the shampoo bottle.
You need to follow ALL 4 steps, and most stop after no. 3October 4, 2021 8:13 am at 8:13 am #2012028Abba_SParticipant
Don’t you have better things to pray for, such as health wealth and children without worrying about how much hair you have on your head/October 4, 2021 10:00 am at 10:00 am #2012093RememberThatParticipant

Thanks for making me laugh..October 4, 2021 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #2012237
The Binah Leitim darush 41, explains that hair protects against the wetness in the brain through which wisdom emanates.
