So what is the difference between body hair and fur? Both have a terminal length. Are they the same thing, but we just call them different things to make ourselves feel special and slightly further separated from animals?
when the hair detaches itself from the root, how is it still connected to the arrector pilli and able to stand up? and when the hair falls out, what happens with this muscle connection? does it detach and reattach to hairs as they grow, fall out, and are replaced?
When people grow their hair as long as it will grow it usually tends to stop growing at about the waist line. But if they cut it back, it will grow again until it gets back to the waist. Some people can grow their head hair all the way past the ankles, I had a cousin with hair that long. Her hair seemed to just keep growing for ever. I am still wondering how hair knows that it's waist long.
God damn it... the answer at the end of the video is "We don't know". I really wanted to know how the hair in arms and legs can know when to stop growing considering they start growing so fast after being shaved.
I think if you let your hair grow out as much as it can and just leave it be and not cut it your body will use the extra growth hormone or whatever that is not being used since ur hair has grown to its full potential for other things like repair other stuff muscles groups etc.. I dont know just a theory.
Still don't understand how the hair on my legs knows it's been shaven for it to start growing straight away, the hair didn't fall out naturally so how does it know? I get the part it knows when to stop.
Well that could have been, like, a five second video.
Question: How does hair know when to stop growing?
Answer: We don't know. But we do know is scientists want to know too! So you're just going to have to wait on that. Until then, watch this video to find out how hair grows and falls out!
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
