Long hair problems

Recommended Posts

Guest Hair

I'm  not trying to troll like some people on here talking about hair. I have a genuine question. My hair takes a long time to dry and I usually wash my hair during amritvela once every 2 days because My job is very physically demanding but this means it interferes with my nitnem because apparently you can't do nitnem without your head covered. So now I have a problem. Can I just cover my hair with a ramaal like mona Singhs do when they go gurdwara or does it have to be a dastaar while I do nitnem? 

if I'm not then can Anyone tell me some tips to dry hair super quick in like 15 minutes or so because I have to be out of the house pretty quick. 

Thanks so much

If you listen to nitnem then there is no need to cover your hair.

If you read gurbani then what I would do is when you wash your hair, squeeze it to get the excess water out (like when you squeeze and twist a towel). Then, cover it with a towel so it absorbs everything.

If that's the case, when it comes time for Rehras or something, why is it that people (amritdhari or kesadhari) expect the monas to cover their heads in some way? I have seen that innumerable times, and it's because Sikhs believe that you should cover your head in respect for Gurbani.

I do agree that you could get away with just covering your hair, and not having a full dastar if you're just listening to Gurbani, and not reading it. I.e., let your hair loose behind your head like a woman, and put a light dastar (like those precut orange keskis) on your head like a chunni.

An additional step that the OP might want to take if reading Gurbani is to tie a dumalla-style small turban with one piece of cloth twisted around his hair with a tight small turban on top. After he's done with Nitnem, than the hair closest to the roots should all be free from water, with only the tips left to dry.

Best option: 1) Let your hair loose and put a light keski on your head while you do naam abhias. 2) Tie a small dumalla to read Nitnem. 3) Discard the wet dumalla, and retie your normal turban.

Please for the love of God squeeze your hair after u wash it because its so yucky when its still wet with excess water. It makes it quicker too.

are you allowed to use a hairdryer? if i am then i guess after a kesi ishnaan i can wait 10/15 minutes whilst drying my hair with a hairdryer and then tie my full dumalla then does that seem like a good idea?

    • Agree with the fact that Talaq is not compatible with Sikhi. Even the word comes from Muslim lands. However, I think you paint with too broad a brush when you call divorce an "abrahamic thing". Christianity doesn't allow divorce, except for just a couple of specified situations: Jesus said:  He said to them, “It was because you were so hard-hearted that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for unchastity, and marries another commits adultery.”[a] Matthew 19 Marriage is seen as a holy sacrament in Christianity. By contrast, there is nothing holy about marriage in Islam. It is merely a worldly contract, and divorce is explicitly allowed in the Koran.
