In contrast our long haired ancestors had healthy heads of hair because they manipulated nature little. This unique book traces the history of this fact as well as the origins of excessive hair removal during times of religious idolatry. The fight against hair loss will never be won until you understand that the real root causes are self-inflicted or enforced against you by others. Longer hair is healthier. Enjoy!

This book is packed with information, instruction and advice concerning hair and scalp health. My hair has been thinning for many years. I tried one of the products mentioned in the book to heal my scalp and after several months of use my hair stylist informed me that new hairs stubs were emerging on top and the backside of my head. If the information within this book were available to me twenty years ago- I might have a full head of hair now!
Besides learning the science of proper hair care, Our LONG HAIRitage inquires into the purposes and significance of human hair and that our own choices or social pressures in society cause most hair loss. Sigler traces the origin of excessive cutting to religious idolatry. The historical section of the book is incredible, contains great pictures and is a joy to read. Buy this book to learn about the purpose of God given hair.

I keep my hair short and have receding hair, and I had resigned myself to hair loss similar to my father's. But after reading Our Long Hairitage by Sigler - a book that discusses the health benefits, physiology, practical upkeep, history, and even biblical passages related to long hair, I am motivated to fight for a healthier "crown."
Being a scientist and writer, I brought a critical eye to the science and writing in this book. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of both. Sigler used an easy-to-follow narrative style. I would have preferred a little less use of "you" as the subject in some sentences. But such a nit is hardly worth picking in light of a significant work as this.
Our Long Hairitage was packed with relevant illustrations and helpful footnotes, but the fact that I learned something new from at least every other page was most remarkable. I have read medical reports, taught anatomy, and read holistic health books, so I did not expect to learn so much new and practical information. For example, I learned that multiple clinical studies showed that over 90 percent of women experienced reversal of hair loss with the affordable German product Thymuskin. Also, loss of hair decreases scalp and follicle health, which furthers the vicious cycle. I even learned the world record length of dreadlocked hair, and why dreadlocks can grow so long.
Though I disagree with the few places where Sigler suggested that the failure of men to grow long hair is morally questionable, I now agree that long hair is the wisest option for good hair and scalp health. It prevents skin cancer and further hair loss, for starters. Near the end of the book, Sigler wrote, "Now that you know the truth, only you can make real changes." Will I now grow my hair longer? Yes! What an enlightening book.

Roger Sigler has produced a superb scientific study on hair and hair care. It is a thoroughly researched and documented, a unique resource, yet fun to read. In a culture so focused on organic, holistic, and natural, why do men wear their hair (if they have any) so unnaturally instead of as designed? Roger explains why close cut hair leads to baldness, stress, and illness. This book is for anyone with hair who wants to keep it; anyone without hair who wants to restore it; school and business administrators who set hair grooming codes; and for every person in the hair care industry. The goal: be healthy, happy, and free by wearing the crown of hair God designed for only you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
