Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2864: κόμη

κόμη, κόμης, (from Homer down), hair, head of hair: 1 Corinthians 11:15. (According to Schmidt (21, 2) it differs from θρίξ (the anatomical or physical term) by designating the hair as an ornament (the notion of length being only secondary and suggested). Cf. B. D. under the word .)

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance

Apparently from the same as komizo; the hair of the head (locks, as ornamental, and thus differing from thrix; which properly denotes merely the scalp) -- hair.

see GREEK komizo

see GREEK thrix
