I hate how my body works, I take a shower in the morning, wait a few hours, and the armpit hair is already visible again, and the pores where the hair on my legs come out of are also clearly visible. If i don't shave my leg hair for like 2 days, it will be so long. I can't even wear tank tops anymore
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.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
