Sat Shri Akal,
A few days ago my friends and i were talking and the topic of dying hair came up. My (american) friends have all done it and i was wondering if it is against our religion. I am really not sure if it is but i think thta if some one does dye their hair that it means they dont like the way Whaheguru has made them. Well, i am not sure if its true, but thats what people have told me. I really want to knwo if it is against our religion. Thank you.
Whaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Whaheguru Ji Ke Fateh
Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji Ki Fateh!
You are right; it is not really Sikh to dye one's hair. In particular, the Amritdhari Sikh takes a vow to leave his/her body as God created it. So dyeing the hair would mean altering the body.
You can read a lot more about this by searching this Sikhnet Youth Forum using keywords 'dye or dyeing' and 'hair'.
