Sorry I don't have an answer but I can tell you that my parents burn there combed out hair and I reckon it is a good and effective way of getting rid of them or they can wonder out anywhere if the bin is left open. I some times find bits of hair in the garden and that can be really annoying when your cutting the grass. :)

I personally don't like throwing them out in the bin it just doesn't feel right if you know what I mean. We have a certain spot where we put the combed out hair and then around once a month we burn it in the back yard. (Now there's like this little black patch of burnt grass, lol).

I really don't know what you should do, sorry...

Bhul chook muaf.

There is honestly no answer for this question, I actually would assume that you would put them in the bin, but you must do what seems best, because there is kesh in our entire body, some fall out without us even knowing it, like our skin hairs, what do we do with them, nothing much, just let them fall, without us ever knowing

What I do with my dead hairs is keep then in a bag and after a while when the is nearly full, I burn the dead hairs. Then I put the ashes in running water (river, lake, canal).

okay the way oif the khalsa is to cremate the kes, on does a suplimentry ardass and recites japji then cremates the kes. after the cremation the ashes are either places in running water or left.
