Tet kale

Tèt kale - bald head, smooth head (it means your head has no hair whatsoever, totally hairless)
However,
Tèt chòv - bald head (it means your head has no hair where you should normally have hair)


Haitian Creole expressions for tèt kale are:
heart and soul, exclusively, thouroughly, from head to toe, all the way.

A new movement, lead by newly elected President of Haiti, Michel Martelly (2010),  is also called Tèt Kale.  This movement may stand for thoroughness and conclusiveness.
