In Ancient India, on the contrary, the sbrivaniye of hair on the head was considered as so big shame that sometimes replaced with this ceremony the death penalty! The prisoner as a sign of humiliation shaved off hair, leaving five shreds which were sticking out in different directions.
At some African tribes the custom " still remained; porodneniye hairdresses “. It is that under music and singing five or six relatives shave off hair bare. All cut-off hair are set in a special clay jug, filled in with structure from sand, waters and clays and carefully mix.
