Just because hair is “technically dead” and getting haircuts “makes you look like a human being” doesn’t mean that it’s acceptable! Why cut off part of your body for a non-medical reason? Also, maybe the body is supposed to have the head weighed down a bit by having a lot of heavy hair? Don’t you think that removing the weight might affect your bone density? Hair also catches the sweat from your head so it doesn’t fall onto your neck. Show me one study that demonstrates the safety of letting that sweat run down!
Do your research. Show me the studies! If you don’t take this seriously, it’s because you are not open-minded enough. It’s a shame that some people don’t even think to hear out both sides of a debate. It’s only fair for both sides to get equal airtime.June 5, 2019 11:39 am at 11:39 am #1738506JosephParticipant

Cutting hair is kefira, If Hashem wanted people with short hair, He would have made us that wayJune 5, 2019 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1738570
My fingernails break off on their own, very painfully, but that is clearly how the human body was made, so who are we to decide on artificial methods such as “nail-clipping”?June 5, 2019 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1738580knaidlachParticipant
what about the bad odor created naturally in your mouth after a night sleep? why get rid of it?
and what about the sweat the body produces?
anyway, this discussion is irrelevant, because it says in Shulchan aruch to cut your nails every erev shabbos, and to get a haircut on erev shabbos if your hair are long, and to rinse your mouth every morning, and to wash your body on erev shabbos, and for kovod habrios to wash your body as often as needed.June 5, 2019 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1738588Old Crown HeightsParticipant
What’s this business about taking a bath on Erev Shabbos? Who are you to interfere with how Hashem intends you to smell?June 5, 2019 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1738590Old Crown HeightsParticipant
People shouldn’t brush and certainly not floss. I’ve never seen a rigorous double-blind study showing that having teeth is better than no teeth. And the earlier in life you lose all teeth the less exposure you have to the chemicals in the dentist office. And I’ve seen many happy smiling people without a tooth in their mouth and many people with all their teeth get into bad moods.June 5, 2019 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #1738604GoldilocksParticipant
Indeed, we live in a very scary world.
An acquaintance of mine had holes punched through her baby daughter’s ears for non-medical reasons – and not even in a doctor’s office!
Piercing body parts unnecessarily is reckless and irresponsible!June 5, 2019 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #1738609Reb EliezerParticipant
The Ben Ish Chai explains that someone did not want to have a beard because he was not born with it then hakheh es shinov as he was not born with his teeth either. I said he did not want to circumsize himself because he wasn’t born like that, so then knock out his teeth not to be able to eat the korban pesach.June 5, 2019 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #1738610
Toothbrushing is obviously a fad by today’s humans who are nebach the snowflake generation and want to spare themselves the pain of having their teeth rot out instead of facing it naturally and bravely.June 5, 2019 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #1738614avreichamshlomoParticipant

laskern, I know this is all tongue in cheek, but I have come across people who seem to seriously think that “hak’he es shinov” means “knock out his teeth”, or at least that it means some sort of violence. Where on earth could this idea possibly have come from?
My teory is that it comes from Yiddish speakers unconsciously associating “hak’he” with “ois’hakn”. Of course these two words in completely unrelated languages have no connection at all, and “hak’he” has no violent connotations whatsoever.June 5, 2019 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #1739169
If I were you I’d make sure not to leave my house without being dressed snazzy

Klugeryid, you are a perfect example of someone so set in your ways that you simply refuse to hear out the other side of the debate.June 5, 2019 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #1739174Uncle BenParticipant
RY23; There are many natural poisons.June 5, 2019 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1739197DovidBTParticipant
I cut my own hair. The only problem is that I can’t find any of that blue stuff that you put combs in.June 5, 2019 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1739195
Uncle Ben, why do you say that poison is necessarily bad? Open your mind.June 5, 2019 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #1739202
DovidBT, Barbicide is dreadfully unnatural and it kills bacteria, so why not assume it is bad for human cells?June 5, 2019 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #1739260
And by the way I hope you don’t use umbrellas.
If hashem wanted you to stay dry during a rainstorm, you’d have feathers like a duckJune 6, 2019 12:17 am at 12:17 am #1739257
Is there another side. I think there is only my side. I’m perfectly willing to listen but you never present. I’ll be going now. Stop making noise.

Did you know that if you never shower, your body forms natural layers of oil to make you waterproof?June 6, 2019 7:41 am at 7:41 am #1739284

I don’t expect everyone to agree with me, but everyone should at least let me bring this up every time the topic of haircuts comes up, and listen respectfully.
