9 Mind Blowing Facts About Your Hair

We all have it, even if is just one strand of hair, most of us are so obsess about it, but what do you really know about your hair?


I mean it covers your head and you care for it so diligently by brushing, shampooing and conditioning.
But do you know it has some pretty amazing facts that you never knew about.

So, the next time you are brushing or combing your hair, think about these nine amazing and mind blowing facts about hair that will make you love it even more.

1. Your Hair grows a even quicker than you imagine

Hair actually grows at a rate of 0.33mm every day, so if you leave your hair alone for a year, it would have grown 6 inches.

What will slow down the progress of your hair growing, though, is the rough treatment that you give it and the repeated use of heated tools.

In addition, your facial hair grows faster that all other hair on your body.

2. You lose about 100 hair strands every day

One so interesting fact about hair is that on average, you will lose between 50 and 100 hair strands every single day.

So don’t worry about all those hairs that you find in your hairbrush, it’s perfectly normal for hairs to fall out every day.

No need to panic, they start growing back again straight away so you don't even notice it.

In addition, your hair strand has a life span of 3-7 years on average.

 3. Your hair could support two Jeeps.

Despite all the warnings about how easily you can break and damage your hair, more stronger than you think.

A single strand of hair is capable of supporting 100 grams of weight, and your whole head of hair, although Health This Moment does not recommend that you try it, could support the weight of two jeeps.

Mind you, It’s your scalp that wouldn’t be able to cope with the weight.

 4. Your hair grows faster in the summer

The reason is this, the weather gets warm during summer, and your grows faster in high temperature.

Human hair growth is stimulated by warmth, so if you are trying to grow your hair long, get out more in the summer, or turn up the heating at home in the winter or harmattan.

5. Your hair is elastic

Your hair is very elastic, so it can stretch and then return to its original length easily.

When your hair gets wet, its elasticity increases even further and wet hair can stretch by up to thirty percent without it being damaged.

Wet hair is weaker though, so if you pull it too far, it will break more easily than dry hair would. Also, the lighter the colour of your hair, the more elastic it will be.

6. If you are bald, you are prone to heart problems

Loss of hair should not be taken granted. Recent research of 40,000 men has shown links between baldness and risk of coronary heart disease.

Bald men were prone to 70% greater risk of heart disease compared to non-balding men.

7. Cutting your hair does not make it grow any faster

This is just a myth gone too popular, the myth says that cutting hair makes it grow faster and it won’t make any difference to the condition of your hair either.

A hair cut will, of course, neaten up your hair and remove all the extra hair strand, but your hair will carry on growing at the same rate, whether you cut it, or not.

8. This Is Why You Have Hair On Your Head

The hair on your heads is for a very good reason.

Unlike the rest of your body, your head do not have any layers of fat to protect them against the cold and that is why we can lose so much body heat through our heads.

We have hair on our heads to compensate for that lack of fat, to keep some of that heat in.

9. A lot can be known about you from just your hair

And finally, one so amazing fact about hair is that by looking at the core structure of your hair, a forensic scientist would be able to tell what kind of food you have been eating, what you drink, find out about some of your lifestyle choices and even your DNA analysis.

A single hair from the head could now be used to tell whether a person had taken any illicit drugs too, so it could as well be used to provide evidence in an investigation.
