Any text with the least claim of authority is a mere shadow compared to the authority of the Bible in the history of mankind and civilization. Therefore, it would be negligent not to quote the Bible references to the condition of hair in man.
The Bible, from Koine Greek tà biblía, which means the “the books,” is a canonical collection of texts considered sacred in Judaism as well as in Christianity. It has been a major influence on literature and history, especially in the West where it was the first mass printed book.
