It is Talking About Hair Day. It isn’t really, but (just like every other day) part of getting ready to face the world involves fluffing our folliculars.
A wet strand of healthy hair can stretch to 30% more than its original length. When it gets to 31%, it will snap like a brittle twig and ruin your ‘do.
Hair can tell a lot of tales. It can tell a forensic scientist where you’ve been, what you’ve eaten, who you murdered, and how you feel about puppies. It can tell a suspicious spouse that someone has been in close contact with your jacket.
The scientific term for split ends is “trichoptilosis.” No one cares.
Hair is 50 percent carbon, 21 percent oxygen, 17 percent nitrogen, 6 percent hydrogen, 5 percent sulphur, and 70% tangles.
A single hair has a lifespan of about 5 years. Unless you’re LL Cool J or Michael Simon.
Hair grows fastest when you’ve gotten a cut you really like. It grows slowest when you’re trying to grow it out. 3 inches. Before your blind date Saturday night.
