So if one had to choose then?
Even when considering the risk of hair growing out of my ear.
I think I still would say hallo to my friend down under from time to time.
(Nope, I'm not referring to Australia).

And is that a fact?
That hairy ears equals bald heads??
That explains it...

Men who lose their hair have a genetic predisposition to this, how often they have sex or all of the other activities mentioned aren't material during the loss process.  What happens is that men become sensitive to their own DHT and this causes the blood supply to be shut off to the hair root.  This is gradual, resulting in thinner weaker hair to start off with, but eventually the root is unable to produce a follicle.  There are a number of products around which are very helpful for hair loss.

hello folks

how do we define what is naturally head curly hair, does this type of hair grow more when one is awake or more when one is asleep.

i've also noticed that  in some people after growing head hair for a short period of time  and allowing hair to continue to grow, why does hair sometimes grow quiet fast in a sudden short period of time then grow at a ordinary rate over a longer period of time?

can this happen and why?

There is a quite a good blog about blood flow to the hair root and how this relates to hair loss on
newbielink:http://www.retaining-hair-health.com/2009/12/does-your-hair-actually-breathe.html [nonactive]

What it is saying is that your hair does not breathe, it gets its oxygen supply from the blood vessels, if these are constricted, which what happens when someone begins to lose their hair, then the blood supply is depleted, the hair follicle gets weaker and weaker and eventually the root cannot sustain a health hair follicle, which is what causes baldness.

Minoxidil as a vasodilator presumably counters the effect of the vasoconstriction and maintains the blood flow to the hair root.

I was once told hair thrives and grows like the seasons..winter the hair seems to grow evenly quick then spring it shoots out with the sun then summer slows down.. or something like that I may have it backwards and summer the growth spurt like most kids flouring in the warmer weather etc... sun and warmer weather increase growth...No expert but something I once heard but know not if there is any truth to that?

I do know that we shed in the warmer weather of spring and grow faster and fuller in the winter like any animals fur or hair as a defense against the cold!

I'm pretty sure I was warned it could actually lead to hair gain - on the palms of the hands.
