The Dogma of Hair

I'm not 'into' hair, and can barely manage to straighten my own (when it's not in default ponytail setting). Curling irons are beyond me. Heck, I don't even blow dry my hair - it makes me sweaty and my hand gets all vibratey and I don't like it. Plus I'm terrible at wielding the round brush.

But I do think about hair a lot, not from a style perspective, but from a social perspective. Hair symbolizes a lot of things. Here are my thoughts on the matter, and why, for such a non-styled person, hair is very important to me personally.

I guess I'm thinking about hair because I'm going to get mine done tomorrow. And while I don't want to be one of those people who blogs/tweets about their hair, maybe from this post you can understand why I find it so interesting and personal.

Do you have any dogmatic ideas about hair and its symbolism?
