[AI] is it possible for a completely blind?

Hi Rahul,

Let us leave it to the original questioner to clarify what he meant.

It is not uncommon for people who go blind suddenly to want to be
independent with everything they do. In such instances, a little reassurance
that everyone is to some extent dependent helps.    

I have met many blind women who do their own makeup, but have so far never
come across a blind person who is able to dye their hair independently. As
with makeup, a slight mishap here can produce comical effects.

Hi,

With great respect, I think the original poster's question was not if going
to a barber constitutes dependence, but instead if there are ways in which
he can dye his hair independently. I feel that, sometimes, instead of
answering the question here, we are quick to point out the fallacies in the
questioner's premises  (I have been a victim of this multiple times). So
instead of getting concrete answers, the questioner is compelled to justify
the correctness of the question.  

Everyone's view of independence can be different; the same visit to the
barber for a shave or dying hair which may appear to one person as nothing
more than commercial intercourse may be viewed by another person as a waste
of their time, an unnecessary expenditure and an intrusion in their
schedule.

Best,
Rahul
