Curious Facts About Hair

The hair of men is finer than that of women.

The average weight of a head of hair is from 5 to 12 ounces.

On an average head there are about 1,000 hairs to the square inch.

Hair will stretch about one-fourth of its length and retract nearly to

its original length.

Four hairs of good strength will hold suspended a one-pound weight. A

single head of hair, of average growth, would therefore hold suspended

an entire audience of 200 people.
