What is Hair?
Why is hair curly?
The shape of each hair follicle is thought to be determined during embryonic development, but scientists do not know exactly how this happens. Curvy hair follicles are “S-shaped,” meaning that they have two bends. This shape is set for life, although the hair follicle naturally undergoes structural changes every few years.
Each hair grows for around 3 to 5 years before undergoing a resting phase of several months, and then, eventually, it falls out.
During this resting phase, the hair follicle changes in structure, essentially shriveling up in the skin. To start a new cycle of hair growth, the follicle grows back to its original shape.
Is hair colour determined by genes?

Sake Dean Mahomed, an Indian traveller, surgeon, and entrepreneur, is credited with introducing the practice of shampoo or “shampooing” to Britain. In 1814, Mahomed, with his Irish wife Jane Daly, opened the first commercial “shampooing” vapour masseur bath in England, in Brighton.
The Hair of The Prophet SAW
From Shamail Muhammadiyq
“I said to Anas: ‘How was the hair of Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace)?’ He replied: ‘It was neither crisply curled nor lank. His hair used to reach the lobes of his ears’.”
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا وَهْبُ بْنُ جَرِيرِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، قَالَ: قُلْتُ لأَنَسٍ: كَيْفَ كَانَ شَعَرُ رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم؟ قَالَ: لَمْ يَكُنْ بِالْجَعْدِ، وَلا بِالسَّبْطِ، كَانَ يَبْلُغُ شَعَرُهُ شَحْمَةَ أُذُنَيْهِ.
