And just for fun, here are some quick facts about the hair that you can use to impress your friends:

The hair, along with the skin and nails, is part of what is called the integumentary system (fancy, huh?!)

The hair is slightly acidic, with a pH ranging from 4.5 to 5.5.

The number of hair follicles each person has is set at birth and no new hair follicles develop after that.

Hair is made up of a protein called Keratin, which is also a key structural material that forms the outer layer of the skin.

Goose bumps are caused by tiny muscles called Arrector pili that are attached to the hair follicles.  These muscles are activated by fright and cold temperatures which cause them to contract, pulling the hair up in an upright position and causing the characteristic bump.

Hair follicles have a pre-programmed pattern of growth (anagen phase), rest (catagen phase), and replacement (telogen phase), which cycles over two years.

During pregnancy, the hair stops shedding and becomes thicker. After pregnancy, the hair follicles rapidly shed to catch up, returning to a normal cycle nine months after giving birth.

The average person has between 100,000 and 150,000 strands of hair on their head.

Individual hairs are in different stages of the growth and the pattern of growth cycles for the hair is randomized over the scalp so that there are no bald patches.

All hair is dead except the hair that is still inside your scalp.

Hair follicles are found in the dermis, the skin’s middle layer.

Fine hair on the body is called Vellus Hair while hair on the scalp is called Terminal Hair.

Men and women have structurally identical hair.

Yep, that was pretty fun!
