One day, when Loki couldn't help being bad, he cut off all of Sif's hair. After seeing what Loki had done, the horrified Sif when to her husband. Thor was so enraged at what Loki had done, Thor begin to beat Loki until he promised to fix his mess.
Thor is famous for two thing, his hammer and his belt. Thor received these from Loki, who got them from the dwarves. Loki went to the dwarves and convinced them to make a new head of hair for Sif, but ended up making a deal with Brokk and Sindi. The deal was that if they could make better gifts they could have his head.
