Abstract: An exhasutive research on the Egyptian iconography and funerary texts shows that ancient Egyptian hair was necessary in funerals of Ancient Egypt .
In this book many proves demonstrate that the Egyptian hair in the mourning rite was a crucial for getting the resurrection. The new life of the dead depended on many things: offerings, mummyfication, religious texts for passing to the Afterlife…
Among all o them, the two disheveled women in the role of Isis and Nephtys were essential. That ancient Egyptian hair was not just a sign of sadness, but an element full of symbolism, which helped in the dad’s resurrection.
