This Is What Happens To Your Hair After You’re Dead

Well, hair is undoubtedly one of the best parts of our bodies. We absolutely love our hair! We spend our life taming our hair in the right way so that they look the best. Some of us even undergo chemical treatments to enhance the beauty of our hair. But, what happens to them once we are dead?

First of all let me tell you that hair are made up of a protein called Keratin, and this protein is completely devoid of water. Keratin is insoluble in water which is clearly visible when we try to get rid of the hair trapped in the sink using water. Keratin is tough enough to overcome various harsh conditions.

So once you are dead, do you think your hair still keep growing? Well the answer is no. Although it seems like they have grown up because of the shrinked size of the body. Hair growth is directly connected to the blood vessels present at the base of every hair follicle. The hair from the outer surface of the skin to the further length is basically already dead! That is why we can get a haircut without any pain!

Another interesting thing is that studies show that hair change color over time. They turn reddish in color when oxidation of Eumelanin present in hair takes place, leaving behind pheomelanin , the pigment that imparts red color to the hair. The hair of ancient Egyptian mummies is generally reddish in color because they have been dead for a long time by now and ample time was there for the oxidation of Eumelanin.

Well, the trend of the dead seems to be trending in the living creatures too!

So why get your hair dyed when they are eventually gonna be red anyway? At least you will live a glamorous ghost life! Save that money and order yourself a pizza instead.
