Second Section – the Negative Commandments

164. It is a negative commandment "do not make one's self bald over death of a relative"

As it states in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 14:1, "do not make baldness between your eyes for a dead person." This means do not pluck out the hair in one's head.

This applies in all places and at all times, for men and for women.
