Five Types of Hair: Healthy Energies Inside and Out
Five is a very powerful number in both nature and the human body. As an easy example there are five fingers on each hand and five toes on each foot. Five elements in nature–fire, water, earth, wind, ether. There are also, of course, the five basic human senses.
But did you know that there are actually five different types of hair–scalp, body, eyebrow, pubic, armpit–and each type of hair plays an important function for the body.
You see, your hair is very much alive. In accordance with ancient Taoist teachings, your hair acts as a storehouse for the five different energies. These energies, or Chi, manifest in each individual strand and contribute to the vibrant glow of health hair.
As with any other living thing, the health of your hair depends on what you feed it. Chemicals that damage or destroy your hair also destroy the Chi stored inside each strand. In addition, chemicals diminish the ability for new strands of hair to store Chi.
That’s why we recommend only raw, all-natural hair care products. By feeding your hair with wild-crafted ingredients you are nourishing your hair’s ability to store Chi energies. Eliminating chemicals produces a drastic effect on the vibrancy and health of your hair, both inside and out.
