Facial hair in TDCJ
« on: September 26, 2015, 01:05:24 pm »
Since March 2015 TDCJ inmates have been permitted to grow facial hair (beards and moustaches). Initially there was some confusion over what could be grown and by whom, as religious reasons was given as the driver for the rule change.

Now male inmates can submit an I60 to request permission to grow their facial hair. There can be no shaping of the beard and moustache; beards must be carried down the neck (which is going to be itchy in the TX summers) and must be no longer than 1/2 inch long.
There and back again....

Does it have to be for religious reasons?

My son is in Administrative Seg--he sees NO ONE but us for 2 weeks on Saturday.  They told him he had to remain clean shaven when 6 days a week he may not even have a human conversation outside of direct orders.  He asked why he had to stay clean shaven.  They said for religious reasons they can have a beard and mustache.  Truthfully, he said he finally felt like he had some control over any single thing in his lie.  HOWEVER, they said it was for religious reasons and only allowed to shave on his  birthday once a year.  That bit him in the butt!
