“The practice of preparing shrunken heads originally had religious significance; shrinking the head of an enemy was believed to harness the spirit of that enemy and compel him to serve the shrinker. It was said to prevent the soul from avenging his death.”


To make room for more heads.


I’m not completely sure but I think it stops the enemies soul or spirit moving on so they remain in the world, which is seen as a sort of hell if you haven’t got your body. The enemy being the person whos head they cut off.
