Most Helpful Girl
Cambodian women (yes I'm a Cambodian woman) do it as a cultural thing. When a family member passes away someone in the family has to shave their head. When my grandma on my dads side passed away, he shaved his head. When my grandpa passed away, on my mums side my mum shaved her head
Why? What Cambodian culture was about:
1. In Life there is suffering
2. Suffering is caused by the want or craving for the impermanent
effects of self serving desire.
3. The way to counteract and therefore rid yourself of suffering is
to rid yourself of the cause of suffering
4. The way to rid yourself of suffering is by adhering to the eightfold Noble Path
So imperamant was hair in this state.
(Thought it would be interesting to share because it's in relation to the question)
But anyways. I wouldn't be bothered if other girls chose to do that. Sometimes they have to do that because they don't have a choice, while other women who want to do that choose to. No I wouldn't shave my head1
