thanks for all your comments. I don't think I want to wear a keski to mask something that I am. Maybe I will just go white and see how things pan out, the underlying cause for it is medication and there isn't much I can do to come off that.

Looking for the yellow brick road....

H Kaur.

The reason for wearing a keski is not to mask what you are, its to follows Guru Sahibs rehit.

My point is that the choice to wear one shouldn't be made because you want to use it to hide. it should be because you want to follow rehit and Guru's way..... I don't think that religion should be used as an excuse but as a way of life.

Strange that the Rehet Maryada does not mention when hair are still  uncut  :

- No hair fixer

- No tying of beard

-No Hair weaving.

- No hair Gel

 The reason no-dying has been included has nowhere been mentioned. The Dying Hair is no disrespect.

One reason given is that one has to accept the natural state of the body. So why not accept any other disease that develops in the body. In fact white hair early is a sign of lack of melanin - a chemical in the body that keeps hair black.

Sikhi goes along with a householders duties and living. The Sikhi needs the Sikh to refrain from the five passions . Sikh is seva and simran. In the Rehetnama the " No smoking and No liquor " restrictions are easily understandable however the inclusion of "no hair Dying" looks incongruous .

In today's world  when vegetarianism is not encouraged it founds no mention thus the food habits are untouched except No Halal restriction . There is "no jhutha" advise also and understandable as it is undignified as a sikh. The  premature greying of hair is a recognized medical problem caused by many factors like stress, vitamin B12 deficiency, Hypothyroidism, unbalanced diet, . Premature graying  is depigmentation of hair and a  disease . 

So rehetmaryada needs to be re- looked in  so that social self esteem of the Sikh is maintained .

So you guys say that any effort to bring white hair to black is sin?

So if some herbal shampoo say that they can conver premature hai to black then we should not use them as its against sikhi?

In Ayurveda potato skin and other treatments etc can convert white hair to black. Is that also sin?

bhen ji you should see a doctor because it sounds like a shutdown of melanin production which could affect your skin too e.g. phulberi/vitiligo , it's better to eliminate disease processes from the questions . Homeopathy can help with premature whitening but you need to get a consultation to indivualise treatment.

I know some khatri sikhs and maybe afghan sikhs do some mehndi dying thing, I don't think you are supposed to though.

using mehndi on hair will kill off melanin production so you will have more whites , besides who wants to look freaky with a bright orange dhardi like a musla?Guru ji has said not to use

    • No offense, but ... who cares? It's not like this was the finals or a world championship.
    • It's one thing to cluster in a given area to have enough people to make congregation able to support a temple, church, etc. But what we're talking about is the aggressive tactics used to rid an area of non-Muslims. The percentage of Chinese in Chinatowns is very high. But non-Chinese people are not usually afraid of visiting Chinatown. They are not no-go areas where they bully, ban, and kill non-Chinese people, in the way that a Swedish reporter who was working to de-mystify no-go zones was shot ... in a no-go zone, thereby proving the point.
    • Yeah, I think that's true. Maybe that wouldn't be a problem if the elites were ever actually right about anything. It's the elites that decided they wanted to start subsidizing illegitimacy by paying money to women who have children outside of wedlock. If they have a husband who is earning, that counts against their welfare benefits. Surprise, surprise, you get women mating with multiple men not their husbands. It's the elites that decided to start the war against Iraq, a country that never invaded or even threatened the US. It's the elites that decided they want to teach children in 3rd grade in a way that encourages them to want to engage in extra-marital sex. And it's the elites that decided to import millions of fake Syrian refugees without even a vote (most don't even claim to be from that country, most of the ones who claim to be aren't). And so on.
    • Yes, good point. I think this is the reason Guru Sahib granted us the Rehit. The Rehit keeps us tough. We're meant to engage in sword-play and ride horses, and the rest of the Nihang lifestyle. But we've become weak. Sikhs ask, "Why do we have to have a kirpan if there's no war on. And if there's a criminal, we can just call 911, 100, or 999 on our iPhone?" It's people like that which lead to ridiculous stuff like Sweden giving housing benefits to returning Jihadis instead of throwing them in the slammer.
    • Well, I find it quite interesting that you have people (including Sant Dhadrianwale's retinue and possibly including NKJ) who support Dhadrianwale for years. Presumably they support the stuff that Sant Dhadrianwale preached at that time, like Naam Simran. Now, suddenly, he turns around and basically says Naam Simran is manmat. And his followers don't abandon him, they cling even tighter to him. So they can't claim to be supporters of a philosophy (Gurmat). Rather, they were and are supporters of a man. When the man flips, they flip too: ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਛਡਿ ਕੈ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਹੋਇ ਬੰਦੇ ਦਾ ਬੰਦਾ। Manmukh, the mind-orientated, leaving away the true Guru Lord becomes slave of man. ਹੁਕਮੀ ਬੰਦਾ ਹੋਇ ਕੈ ਨਿਤ ਉਠਿ ਜਾਇ ਸਲਾਮੁ ਕਰੰਦਾ। Becoming errand boy of man he goes daily to salute him. ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਹਥ ਜੋੜਿ ਕੈ ਹੋਇ ਹਜੂਰੀ ਖੜਾ ਰਹੰਦਾ। All the twenty four hours (eight pahars) with folded hands he stands before his master. ਨੀਦ ਨ ਭੁਖ ਨ ਸੁਖ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੂਲੀ ਚੜ੍ਹਿਆ ਰਹੈ ਡਰੰਦਾ। Sleep, hunger and pleasure he does not have and remains so scared as if he has been sacrificed. ਪਾਣੀ ਪਾਲਾ ਧੁਪ ਛਾਉ ਸਿਰ ਉਤੈ ਝਲਿ ਦੁਖ ਸਹੰਦਾ। Throughout rains, cold, sunlight, shade, he undergoes myriad sufferings. ਆਤਸ ਬਾਜੀ ਸਾਰੁ ਵੇਖਿ ਰਣ ਵਿਚਿ ਘਾਇਲੁ ਹੋਇ ਮਰੰਦਾ। In the battlefield (of life) this same person, considering sparks of iron as fireworks gets mortally wounded. ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਵਿਣੁ ਜੂਨਿ ਭਵੰਦਾ ॥੪॥ Without the (shelter of) perfect Guru, he wanders through the species. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧੫ ਪਉੜੀ ੪  Bhai Gurdas Varaan 15:4
