Our hair is considered sacred and significant to who we are as an individual, family, and community. In many tribes, it is believed that a person’s long hair represents a strong cultural identity. This strong cultural identity promotes self-esteem, self-respect, a sense of belonging, and a healthy sense of pride.
In India hair is perceived as a natural gift with plentiful long hair representing the generous bounty of nature. Representative of Kundalini energy, long hair is believed to raise energy levels, tranquillity and a sense of intuition.
The Indians’ lack of body hair is attributed to their Asian ancestry. What little they had, they usually plucked. Some tribes wore wispy mustaches: Navajos, Utes, Cherokees and some Northwest Coast tribes and Inuits.
As the ideal Indian woman has been medium-complexioned, she has large eyes, a narrow waist but wider hips and breasts, long black hair, and full red lips as this beauty ideal or at least some proportion of these standards have managed to last in India for centuries.
It’s the other way around: Caucasians have the most body hair. Africans and Asians have less. The amount of chest hair a man has is due to genetic factors, mostly, followed by hormones.
Your Chest Hair Might Match Your Father-in-Law’s Hairy Chest It also may be a result of sexual imprinting — that is, women select men who remind them of their fathers. Regardless, hairy men may not want to be shirtless with their in-law lest they recognize some uncomfortable commonalities. 3

Dark circles are a common bugbear for Indian women, because darker skin is richer in melanin, which leaves dark circles and other pigmentation more pronounced and harder to treat than with Caucasian skin.
Men develop more androgenic hair than women because we have more androgens. Androgens (sometimes referred to as male sex hormones because we more of them than women) are sexual hormones such as testosterone, androstenedione and DHT, which create male characteristics. This, of course, includes being hairier.
Hormones called androgens, which are present in both sexes, stimulate body hair (known as vellus hair) to darken and coarsen. Men have higher levels of androgens than women, so their body hair tends to be more prolific.
Women develop excessive body or facial hair due to higher-than-normal levels of androgens, including testosterone. All females produce androgens, but the levels typically remain low. Certain medical conditions can cause a woman to produce too many androgens.
