Deuteronomy 14:1 You are the sons of the Lord your God. You shall not cut yourselves or make any baldness on your foreheads for the dead 2 For you are a people holy to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.

Did people grieve so much over the dead that their hair would fall out? Or would they shave their heads in tribute to the dead? Or is God a fan of Rogaine and not bald heads?
