As far back as I can remember, I always had a question that I haven't found an answer that satisfies me. I have Googled it and have gotten some answers but not a complete answer to my satisfaction. After researching it, I still don't completely understand it. By now you are probably wondering what the heck I am talking about. From the title of this blog you may have guessed correctly that it is something about hair. Yes, I know I have a lot of it, since it has been five years since I have been to a barber or shaved. My question is why does hair only reach a certain length except for Crystal Gayle's extra, extra long hair. The last time I saw her on TV she had to put it in her pocket to keep from tripping over it. She is amazing but I believe unique in that her hair does not know when to stop growing.
What I am trying to say, an individual or animal has a set length that the hair will grow. Now tell me, just how many of you have had the hair on your arms grow a foot or two long? You say it doesn't grow any? Well then why when it is shaved off does it grows back to the same length? I guess each hair folicle has a preset length that it will allow its hair to grow. I can understand that, but what I don't understand is how does it know that an inch is cut off the end of it? You can cut a dog's hair and it will grow back to where it was. Will someone please explain it to me. Now, go comb your locks (if you have any) and have a very great day this first day of Spring, you hear?
