Getting your hair cut is seldom exciting, but you always hear things at the hairdresser you didn’t know before. It was the same Saturday. The hairdresser was cutting my hair and then pulled away and I heard a sharp intake of breath. She then quickly said that hairs are just like splinters. “Those short thick ones can be quite hard and then they stick into the skin at an angle just like splinters do and give you little annoying pin pricks.
It’s silly I know, but I did not know, so I learned.
