I'll try to get some pictures up!

Right now I've been going with the "wide headband" type things from Goodie... the fabric is probably 5-6 inches wide but gathered into a tube with elastic in it at the very back? So it covers the top but scrunches down behind the neck. Which is good since right now my hair is at a length where havin a scarf tied behind my neck makes all sort of funny "pop up" hair effects!

(My hair grows super slowly, I haven't had more than a "split end trim" in over a year and it's just barely maybe almost if I twist my head a bit to the top of my shirt collar )

Sorry it's taken forever to get back with you! What I do is put my hair in a low-ish pony-tail and then let it down when I'm done tying. As with all things, I keep forgetting to up on the cover. I just can't get into the routine of it, and I get out the door without it and now I can't even find my scarf. It's hard with the bitty one to remember to do anything beyond eating and getting dressed. I guess the people I work with are lucky I remember to put clothes on!

How is everyone? this thread has kind of fallen to the way side. I have been covering about 98% of the time for the last 6 months, how is everyone else doing?

I haven't read the entire thread, I just wanted to share that I knew a woman who practiced Santeria, and one of the results she received was that she had to have something between her head and sky at all times.

I suppose this isn't exactly a "cover your hair", she mostly wore hats that still let hair show, but it did seem related. (She didn't have to wear the hat indoors, but usually did anyway.)

OH, I actually have a picture since DH took one on Mother's Day. http://www.flickr.com/photos/wombatclay/3522102711/

And now that my hair is getting a bit longer I've started experimenting with braiding my hair into covers... hmmmm... that sounds odd. But having a sort of braid or braids across the crown of my head and along the sides that has a mesh or crystal or significant item woven into the braid. So serving the same purpose (protection from and/or containment of energy, reminder of sacred) as a fabric scarf but more organic to the day and less visible.

I'm finally doing it! I've been ruotinely wearing a wide headband. I also bought the one by Goody, but they're out of them now. I guess they stopped making or carying them or something. At any rate, I found a really pretty pink plaid one at an afro-hair store near where I work. Now that I know what I'm looking at, I'm gonna sew a few of my own.

Has anyone ever heard of a distinct reason why a shaman or soothsayer would need to NOT cover their head? I have an idea about this, but I can't find any scholarly answers for this online that would support my theory...

While I can't say it's true 100% of the time concider this: I brought this up on a local pagan mailing list and among the many many reasons I was given to not cover was one that had nothing to do with women's rights or political statements. She is a member of a sort of Native American style tradition that blends in some new-age stuff among other things. At any rate the beleif is that your hair is like your antenna, your receiver for the energy of the universe. Covering it would be bad.

I actually swore an oath to Frigg on Mother-night two Yule's past (aka a year and a half ago). The intent was to help me focus on my role in my family as wife/mother, and the oath was to cover my hair until it's long enough to tie into a knot. Since I shaved my head two years ago, it's going to be a while yet before my hair is that long; I don't know that I'll stop covering then, but I won't before. There is an implication that I also won't cut my hair, however.

Coming of age for DD is more likely to involve giving her more freedom over choosing her own dress/modesty (or deliberate lack thereof). I do require her to keep her shoulders covered, and don't let her wear very short shorts or skirts or bare her midriff. She's five. When she comes of age and comes into her own time of exploring her sexuality, it will be up to her to decide what is and is not appropriate (not that I won't express my opinion, but that's not the same as a rule).

Unless, of course, you are the sort of person who needs insulation from all that energy. I also think what the ambient energy is is different; I don't cover within my home because I'm covered by my home-roof; my home has been marked and consecrated as sacred space, and that is renewed regularly. Not so my place of employment, or the city in general.

Wow, I am really amazed that this thread is here! I started covering my head with a bandana after I cut my hair reeeally short last summer. I've been on the hunt for better head coverings than what I've been wearing, and the links on this thread have me drooling.

For me, covering my head has felt right ever since I first had the thought to do it. I feel much more confident and comfortable out in public with something covering my hair. The idea that I'm protecting myself from other people's energy (or other energy that's out there) is one that resonates with me. Reading this thread was a huge "a-ha" moment for me.

I have some other thoughts on the subject, but my baby is needing me now. So good to see other pagans who have felt the same way.

How is everyone doing? I got my first question about my covering today( as apposed to the weird looks) It was actually a pretty positive experience. How is it going for everyone else?

oh- and i agree that there is still great wisdom to be gleaned for those that walk this path from the Abrahamic traditions and it is unfortunate that so many shun the opportunity to do so.
Wow! Most amazing - I'm loving this thread.

I haven't been drawn towards covering my head at all (and that might be aspects of my rejection of the Abrahamic religion of my childhood), but I have been drawn deeply and intensely towards wearing skirts only, skirts all the time. It's a connection to the sacred feminine in my mind, and it does 'set me apart' from the world. And, they are right comfy, too. : Interestingly enough, wearing floor length skirts does not trigger my 'modesty' meter, at all, anymore than wearing a pair of jeans would.

I really need to start sewing more. *lol*

Welcome to the thread all! Some months it's pretty chatty, other months not so much!

That is interesting, since some groups (some Rastafarians, I think?) believe that since your hair is your "antenna" it is crucial to cover it while in situations where the energy would not be beneficial to you. And this is a feeling I've seen in many of the posts here... that a head covering acts on an energetic level in the same way an umbrella acts on a rainy day or a coat on a windy day. It's a way to choose how much "X" is reaching you.

That's basically how I feel about covering... it's something I choose to do in some situations, but not in others, depending on the energy of the place/event/ceremony/people present. And I have different coverings for different times, ranging from wider/more complete coverage (a wide scarf with herbs or stones sewn into the hems, or a knit scarf with specific fibers woven into the knit) to smaller/less visible coverings (like the ribbon I weave into a braid or the silver wire with stone beads woven into a sort of open mesh headband).

This is the way I cover, I feel the need to be completely covered around certain groups of people or in new environments, but I can be completely uncovered or minimally covered around other people. During ritual or meditation I do not cover at all.

I've always got an extra-wide headband on outside my home. And if I run to the ice cream place and realize I've forgotten it, I feel completely exposed. No one has said anything to be about it at all. In fact the kids on my school bus think it's pretty cool. It has the added benifit of keeping my hair out of my face when I drive. I'm gonna see about picking up stone beads and sewing them onto a couple (I even made a few out of old altar cloths) I love making my own and I can match them to my outfits, too! The sheilding qualities of my headcovers are a must on the bus.

I've mostly fallen off of covering because my covers are very warm, and that makes me crazy in the heat. I've got two that are light cotton, but as they're plain white they don't get worn terribly often outside of ritual. I still get the urge fairly often, though. I miss it. :

I just started covering a little over a month ago. It's been forever since I have been to mothering and a web search on the subject brought my attention to this. I'll see if I can get some pictures.

So far I am using this style the most. Only difference is that after I get it wrapped I pull some of the back looser so that it looks a little snoodish and then tuck the loose ends in. I really need more scarves though.

For me there are a lot of reasons but you ladies have pretty much covered them.

- of you pagans who cover do you also dress plain or modestly? or is your covering separate from the rest of your style?

The covering is seperate from the rest of my dress. I do not go out of my way to dress conservatively, nor do I go out of my way to dress (how do I put this politely?) in a way that is solely meant to create desire. I've still got my baby belly, and when I get rid of it, I'm sure I'll dress differently. The cover style I use lends itself to clothing styles from dressy to casual. My covering serves a couple puroses. Firstly, it is a symbol of the divine feminine. Secondly, it' protection fron stray psychic energy.

I would say I incorporate it into my style. I do not dress plain( I ware bright colors, patterns , modern styles). I do dress modestly. I ware jeans no shorts, long shirts( but that is more to cover baby belly when i lose it that may change) cover my chest. I do where short sleeves though in the summer but no tank tops. As some one else already said, I cover for two reasons First it is a symbol of the divine feminine. Second, it's protection from negative psychic energy.

I find that my style tends to lean towards modesty - I prefer long skirts, and layered tops, but I will go out with arms & cleavage showing, too.

I came across this Idea in the "covered Girls" section on here we can post examples of our clothes. Here is a example of the kind of clothes I ware daily( these are not actually my clothes but were as similar as I could find) http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/app so we can see what we are all doing. You can just create your own by clicking create then post a link to us here. I look forward to seeing what everyone else is doing.

Totally seperate... I don't equate covering my hair/head with modesty, and there is nothing in particular that would make me "stand out" from the average American college town crowd in terms of clothing or attitude. I'm a snarky/cause/graphic t-shirt and jeans sort.

I belly dance, have tattoos, was a member of a RHPS floor show for years, attend SCA and pagan gatherings/rituals that are certainly not known for "modest dressing" , etc.

Head covering for me is a tool... it helps me shut out unwanted energies while conserving my own.

I've been covering periodically, and finally made a fianancial commitment and ordered some pretty stuff from Garlands of Grace. As a wife and a mother, I don't find many examples in modern media or my social circle. Ancient wives in most societies covered their hair. Hestia, Juno, and queens of the domestic sphere are early always potrayed with covered hair... and that's the example I am drawn to personally.
