Just curious, does there exist a medical condition in which a patient is advised not to or simply cannot cut their (head) hair?

  • $\begingroup$ Patients on blood thinners are advised to avoid cutting risks, which would suggest "no shaving", but presumably depilation by other means would not have that risk. $\endgroup$

An phobia or OCD released to appearance might lead someone to face dire situations when their hair is cut even death if the fear leads to a heart attack.

Alopecia and balding, these individual experience hair loss, thus nothing to cut
