    Well said! I feel the same way, although I grow my hair long because I like the look of my hair long; not so much for religous reasons...My hair being my crowing glory is an added bonus!

    Yes, for religous reasons, and ditto what everyone else has said. I am also apostolic/pentecostal, but currently attending an Assembly of God church (long story).
    Haven't trimmed my hair since spring of '05, currently at BSL (grows slowly due to PCOS, but that is getting under control with diet, no meds, in addition to learning better care for my hair, let see what happens now!). My dd is 6 and right now her hair is at tailbone...barring any emergancy it will grow UNCUT until she moves out of my house, at that point she will be free to make her own decision, unitl then I am spiritually responsible for her.

    The simple answer for me is no, it's more of an aesthetic preference with a bit of rebellion thrown in there. For some reason, though, a lot of acquaintances tend to think of me as being more religious than I am, and part of it seems to be the association between faith and long hair. I was raised Jewish (although my family's practice of it was always pretty liberal/assimilated) and as an adult I'm not religious in the formal sense. Maybe spiritual? That's been sort of an exploration lately.

    I really don't know how to answer this correctly.If there is a way.I'm not religious,so I know that's not the reason why I'm growing my hair.It's not spiritual either.I'm growing my hair for my reasons. There isn't a specific reason why,it's just something that I have put my mind to and I am determined to make it happen. I have control issues and this is something I have control over.I am the one who says it needs to be washed,I'm the one who says if it can be cut or not,etc etc.I'm losing control over many things in my life right now and having control over my hair keeps me somewhat grounded.

    Also for myself, I find that the desire to have long hair is very deeply rooted in me, and sort of makes me feel connected to history in a way. I feel on some level, a connection to women of the past who have had long hair. I don't know if that makes sense or not... but I love history and tradition, and I want to be a part of it and growing my hair makes me feel like I am part of it.

    That's the first time I've actually communicated those feelings... it feels good to talk about it though.

    These two quotes are most of why I'm growing my hair out. The rest of it is that I like taking care of it, for so many reasons.
    Growing my hair back out after some much-needed experimentation and with a color I love!

    No. I am growing mine to love and respect myself as I want to be, rather than what other people think I should be. It is about being honest with myself, and loving and respecting myself.
