Hair grows faster in the summer
A strand of hair lives up to seven years
A person loses 40 - 100 hairs a day
The average scalp has 100,000 strands
90% of scalp hair is growing; 10% rests
Once upon a time....
During the Victorian era, mothers and
daughters (and some men) wove hair into intricate pieces of jewelry, such
as hair bracelets, watch fobs, pins. These unique pieces were usually
woven from dark hair and rarely mixed two different shades of hair. The
weavers decorated their hairwork with gold fittings, beads, and
semi-precious stones, weaving and braiding the hair into geometric or
rope-twist designs. Hair jewelry served as sentimental reminders for
family and friends who had to be apart. Imagine a young woman weaving her
hair into a bracelet for the man she loved. Or a mother weaving her hair
into a watch fob for her only son leaving home.
Oh, riddle me
what is that --
over the head yet
under the hat?
Puzzle #1 (Easy)
Puzzle #2 (Medium)
by Edward Lear
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared! --
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard."
There was an Old Person of Dutton,
Whose head was as small as a button,
So, to make it look big,
He purchased a wig,
And rapidly rushed about Dutton.
