A common refrain from the head-shaving proponents among us sounds something like this:
“But my hair is not my own, it HAS to be shaved off!”
While there may be validity to part of this statement the conclusion is rash and ill-conceived.
Take a look around you.
No one’s making a dent in this disease by engaging in what is ultimately an unsustainable and potentially harmful practice….a practice that drives this pathogen into deeper, darker, and more dangerous terrain. If Morgellons can alter DNA and effectively hijack your hair, what makes you think it will stop there?
My hair was behaving in stereotypical Medusian fashion, attempting to slither its’ way into my eyes and ears, keeping me up all night, and generally making my life a living hell. A regimen of clay and essential oils has prevented Medusa from doing her worst, but I’m under no delusions. She will return in full, unbridled regalia if I let my guard down.
I’ve observed health concerns of a far more serious nature echoed from the shaven than those who’ve taken measures to maintain their head of hair. The bald are generally sicker than their haired counterparts, so why would I follow their lead? I’m not going to take advice from those who appear from both their own images and personal testaments to be far worse off than I…. and only getting sicker.
I’m going to keep my hair.
