Everyone knows that healthy, shiny hair is important; but there’s more to hair than just making sure it looks good.

It’s something that you care for everyday. You keep it hydrated, clean, go in for the standard trim, or maybe try a trending new hue. Your hair (or lack thereof) is a major part of your identity. It’s just one part of who you are!

Have you ever thought beyond the hair follicle? There are so many interesting facts about hair that you’ve probably never even thought about, let alone actually knew about.

So the next time you look in the mirror, take a moment to ponder these few facts about your lovely, luscious hair!

Fact 1

People shed like maniacs! The average person loses 60-100 strands of hair on a daily basis and depends mostly on the factors going on in your life. The amount of hair loss depends on things like pregnancy, diet, age and even the time of year.

Fact 3

The stubble on your face grows faster than any other hair on the body. If the average man were to leave his 5 o’clock shadow to its own device, his beard would grow to over 30 feet over the course of his lifetime. That’s why it’s important to keep ‘er trimmed, gentlemen!

Fact 4

How long does the human hair last? It’s known to be about 3 to 7 years on average before they fall out on their own, given that they aren’t exposed to any major lifestyle changes that could affect their growth.

Fact 5

We aren’t as naked as we think we are. The fact is, we have a lot of hair, it’s just that it’s not as obvious. Most of the hairs on our body are too fine and/or light to actually be seen.

Fact 6

The average human has about 100,000 hair follicles. Each one of those hair follicles can produce 20 individual hairs over the course of a lifetime.

Fact 7

Hair colour determines how thick your hair will be. Blondes come in first place with an average of 146,000 follicles. People with black hair have about 110,000 follicles, while brown hair and redheads have the least amount of follicles.

Fact 8

Hair growth is faster during the summer months. It also grows faster while we sleep, and when you’re between the age of 16 and 24. Unfortunately, older women lose about one fifth of their hair.

So with that in mind, it’s apparent that you should sleep away the summer months during the years of your youth to ensure that you have enough hair to make up for the follicles lost in your golden years!

Fact 9

Women’s hair grows slower than men.

These are just a few of the interesting facts in the wonderful, wide world of hair. Bonus points if you can bring these topics into a casual, every day conversation with friends!
