    Question Does your head hair turn clockwise or counterclockwise ?

    I have long wondered if there was a connection between the direction in which the hair turns and things like right/left-handedness, left/right-brain dominance, or personality.

    My hair whorl turns strongly in a clockwise fashion (viewed from the top with the face up, so turning toward my right-handside above my forehead).

    Some people have such straight hair (e.g. East Asians) that they can easily change their hairline by brushing it. Mine can only go one way, or goes back to that direction naturally if set the other way round.

    Interesting idea...my hair goes to the right (clockwise), very curly as well. I am naturally left handed, but was forced to learn to write right handed. Hmmm....Maciamo you never mentioned are you left or right handed? Oh, about hair whorls, I had a horse trainer who swore that if the hair whorls were clockwise the horse had a better temperment...you know in most cases (with horses) he was correct!

    Cool

    It's hard to vote! Because I always change my hair style!
    But the more on clockwise!
