Hair’s breaking? There’s a Scripture for that!

Wanting hair to grow and be lustrous is not being vain. If you’re experiencing some unexplained hair loss,I hope these scriptures will encourage you. I got them from a woman at my church who was experiencing hair loss about a year ago. Her hair is not a little past shoulder length.

In Judges 16:17, 19-20 we see the connection between the strength of Samson and his hair. I Corinthians 11:15 states that “if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.”(KJV) For clarification, let’s compare other versions of the same verse:

And isn’t long hair a woman’s pride and joy? For it has been given to her as a covering. (New Living Translation)

But if a woman has long hair, it is her ornament and glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering. (Amplified Version)

Notice the different versions and how they all state that the hair of a woman is either a glory or pride and joy or ornament.  Either way, the Word is clear – long hair is our entitlement as women and it is God’s gift to us.  God’s Word is health to our flesh (Pr 4:20-22).  For as long as we are willing to rely on God’s Word, He is willing to meet us at the point of our needs.

It’s it wonderful that there’s  Word for something that would ordinarily seem so inconsequential as hair? You can turn these scriptures into prayers,  along with taking care of your hair the right way, and watch your hair begin to grow.

Scripture References: I Corinthians 11:15: But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering.

Isaiah 60:5a:Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.

Luke 12:7: Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Luke 21:18:But not a hair on your head will be lost.

Songs of Solomon 7:5Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like purple (royal tapestry); the king is held captive by its tresses.

 Judges 16:22 But the hair on his head began to grow again after it had been shaved.

Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Joel 2:25The LORD says, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you.

  1. For me, a beautiful head of hair shows that a woman: looks after herself and is proud of who she is; and is healthy. God gave us our beauty, and there is no need to hide that beauty.

    1. I agree with you, I dont think women need to cover their hair. This Post is just about how God WANTS us to have beautiful hair, not that we should cover it
