The characteristics of hair on the head provide vital information of the way in which individuals think. The speed at which it grows indicates the pace at which personal ideas and concepts develop – its condition mirrors conditions placed upon the formulation of thoughts. – the material reveals the type of thinker from the compassionate to those with strong opinions. Here are some suggestions of what hair types indicate.

Coarse hair – strong, definite thoughts with a tendency to be harsh or brusque – occasional unrefined notions can sometimes become unmanageable

Curly hair – either curl up in a ball in the hope of never having to express an opinion because of having so many going around in the mind – or keep ideas to oneself – even twist or bend notions – likely to go round in circles to make up the mind thinking in a roundabout way – may even twist details to fit into their way out ways of thinking

Fine hair – refined and elegant with little or no need for ‘meaty’ or unpleasant details

Grey hair – continual worry, concern and anxiety drain the hair of its colour- inherent tendency to be concerned over matters there is no control over –  own vibrant concepts have over time been replaced  with other opinions to fit into business belief systems -or to please others – especially controlling and dominant members of the family.

Hard hair – difficulty or awkwardness in bringing through one’s own thoughts usually because of constantly being put to the test

Long hair -a way of grounding highly spiritual Souls -otherwise a need to control from a distance -or conversely preferring others to be in charge – then again there may be the probability of going to great lengths to explain oneself

Perm – voluntarily keeping opinions and ideas to oneself rather than step out of line.

Short hair – conservative – possibly old fashioned – or trying to fit in – or quick to get to the point – a quick thinker

Soft hair – a gentle approach that may require more ‘oomph’ and greater believe in oneself

Spunky hair – highly spirited individual not afraid to stand out in a crowd

Straight hair – goes straight to the point – doesn’t tolerate non-sense – enjoys straightening out ideas.

Thick hair – either full of magnificent ideas but generally overprotective of one’s personal way of thinking

Thinning hair – extreme frustration at not being able to get one’s point across – ‘pulling the hair out’ – or going through highly exasperating times

Wavy hair – series of ideas need focus and direction because of the tendency to weave in and out to avoid making an issue use gesticulations and signals to get their point across and / or like to set the example for others to do the same.

Interestingly, Africans and their relative counterparts worldwide – being so highly spiritual – have been suppressed and – until recently – forced to recoil and keep their incredible wisdom and opinions close to the head – hence their tight curly coarse hair. Many now straighten and / or colour their hair highlighting the changes that are taking place.

God said in His word that every hair on your head is counted… so if your hair is deurmekaar today… don’t worry; it’s just an angel doing stock take!



As delegates arrived for my presentation in Vernon, Canada, it became increasingly clear that the weekend would be animated – filed with diverse thoughts and unique ways of thinking. How did I know? It was the fascinating array of hair styles of varying lengths -along with the wide assortment of colours. Yet it was Joy with her long scraggily grey strands – limply accentuating her drawn and worn out features -who stood out the most. Her thinning lifeless locks spoke volumes about the harassing times that she had just been through leaving her so totally depleted.

I first met Joy seven years previously at Hong Kong airport. I had just flown in from South Africa and was immediately interviewed by Hong Kong radio via a telephone at one of the airline desks. Joy – about to depart for Canada – was most impressed! A year later we were swimming with wild spinner dolphins in Hawaii. The following year she arranged for me to present at her alpaca farm on Salt Spring Island, Vancouver.

Communications had been scarce since then as Joy went through a roller coaster of emotions that had finally caused her and her husband of over 35 years to split – it was no wonder she had so many split ends. Even though she had only just moved to Salmon Arms – forty minutes up the road from Vernon – she kindly invited my friend, Kath Forster, and I to spend a night at her new abode. Little did she know that this kind hearted gesture would drastically change her life!

Her hair had not been cut for 37 years – scant attention had been paid to her increasingly forlorn locks. Prior to meeting her husband, her hair had been short and bouncy – but when he informed her that he preferred girls with long hair – guess what -Joy began growing her hair even though she preferred it short. She had symbolically ‘handed the reins over’ to her future husband and meekly went along with his decisions – whether she liked them or not. It seemed so much easier to do! Joy and her hair though were now showing signs of how much she had mentally suffered. She came to realise that keeping her views out of sight – under hats and scarves – was no longer working for her. She needed to be free of her husband and think for herself.

Lengthy discussions about hair at the presentation had Joy thinking; – without a moment’s hesitation she agreed to change everything that night – all it took was a simple snip of the scissors and a sachet of dye! As Kath gathered the pathetic strands of limp hair, one straight cut took away years of frustration, despair and emptiness. Joy was overjoyed! Shaped into a delightful bob – with colour – the transformation was miraculous! Joy looked at least 20 years younger and couldn’t stop ‘jumping with joy’ as she pranced around the apartment – staring into the mirrors with a ridiculous grin on her face.

Not only had Joy rid herself of her long hair but also her old ways of thinking – no longer needing ‘to go to great lengths’ to explain herself. Meanwhile, dying her hair effectively took away concerns and worries that had once ‘turned her hair grey’. Without her past hanging over head, Joy felt light-headed and knew that she could confidently face life with a far more youthful and fresher outlook.




How do you wear your hair? In a bob? In long flowing locks? Short and spunky? Is your hair the bane of your life or an absolute pleasure? Take a moment to consider its style, shape, colour, length, condition and texture – along with anything else that comes to mind. Then recall what it was like growing up – did you like your hair then?

The words used to describe your hair outline the material of your thoughts – favourable attributes highlight your strong points – less desirable aspects bring to the fore areas that badly need attention and possible improvement. For instance, if you believe your hair to be too dry, it’s likely that you have been so busy thinking of others that your own ideas have dried out – or there’s a chance that you find it a strain getting your own notions across –  otherwise you may be tired of thinking the same old boring, dull, tedious and monotonous thoughts – time and time again – getting nowhere fast! These are just a few of the many possibilities.

Your views regarding your hair in earlier years show whether you were able to think for yourself or had to do as you were told. If, for instance, you don’t like unruly hair, it could be that you resent never being allowed to be boisterous, wild and unmanageable – your every hair was expected to be in place and you had to behave impeccably – no ‘ifs’, ‘buts’ or ‘wherefores’ about it!

If constantly plagued by a string of relentless ‘bad hair days’, ‘run your fingers through your hair’ to determine why it is impossible to ‘gather your thoughts’ – or why your mind is ‘all over the place’ – or why you just can’t ‘think straight’! ‘Bad hair days’ are actually great when needing to be creative and think ‘out of the box’ – a good ruffling of hair is the best way to make the mind go berserk and bring some great concepts to the fore. Just think of the crazy professor invariably depicted with dishevelled hair – yet a brilliant mind!

Hairs are your antennae – those on your head telepathically pick up thoughts – especially when on the ‘same wavelength’ – should anybody have the audacity to think otherwise or it’s impossible to get your point across it can be enough to make you want to ‘pull your hair out’! If this describes you to a ‘T’ – or if you are going through an incredibly challenging period – don’t be surprised that your hair is now thinning! Meanwhile hairs on your body alert you to what’s going on in the vicinity – with ‘hairs standing on the back of the neck’ when concerned, horrified or shocked.

It doesn’t matter if your hair is long, short, straight or curly, as long as you feel good about it. When brushing your hair see it as an opportunity to set your mind straight and brush up your act. It is after all symbolic of your power and the crowning glory that frames your face.

A woman woke up one morning,
looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
‘Well, she said, ‘I think I’ll braid my hair today’
So she did, and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw
that she only had two hairs on her head.
‘Hmmmm’, she said to herself, ‘Today I think I’ll part my hair down the middle’
So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror,
and noticed that she only had one hair on her head.
‘Well’, she said, ‘Today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.’
So she did and had a fun filled day.
The next day, she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed
that there wasn’t a single hair on her head.
‘Today’ she exclaimed, ‘I don’t have to fix a hair on my head!’

And every day she was grateful to be alive



Just think of how often the word ‘sick’ is used.  ‘They make me ‘sick!’, ‘The weather makes me ‘sick!’; ‘I’m ‘sick’ of being treated like dirt!’, ‘I’m ‘sick’ of my job!’ ‘That food is enough to make any body ‘sick!’, ‘The mere thought of it makes me ‘sick!’

It’s no wonder that there is so much sickness on this planet – every time the body is fed with these sickening notions it reluctantly takes them on board. Words once uttered are an incredibly powerful force having an extremely profound impact.  Like a boomerang the target is the source – the more forcefully it is dished out, the more intensely it comes back – and that’s enough to make anybody sick!

Being ‘sick’ is the body’s way of getting attention to what is upsetting it so something worthwhile is done to make things better. Rather than bemoaning this self-inflicted predicament, rejoice at having a fantastic opportunity to get better at participating in the human race – the winners being those courageous enough to stand out and be unique!

The trick is to know what the body is saying in order to know exactly what is going on at a much deeper level – then work out what to do about it!

Remember those terrible moments of feeling humiliated, crushed and devastated in the aftermath of cruel, harsh comments that go the very core – leaving the Soul feeling inexplicably flat, extremely demotivated and unusually distressed? Think now of the delicious feelings evoked by kind words that have the propensity to elate flagging spirits – even to boost a battered self-esteem.

So take time to under-stand why – for example – the body gets ‘sick to the stomach’. Once the ‘history’– the ‘hi’-‘STORY’ – of prior events  are uncovered the answers are surprisingly simple and the solutions may simply require a nice healthy dose of common sense!
