Does water exposure make hair grow faster?

Heather asked the Naked Scientists:

I recently discovered your podcast and am trying to catch up and listen to all
of the previous downloads!

Why is it that our fingernails and toenails grow more quickly when we spend a lot of time in water?  Does this same tendency apply to hair as well? I have never noticed that it does.

What do you think?
