Hairy Situation

Hair is made mostly of the protein Keratin, the same material that gives your fingernails their elasticity. A strand of hair has the same strength as a wire of iron the same thickness. A normal healthy strand of hair will rip after applying a force equivalent to 60kg, or after it has stretched itself for about 70% past its normal length. Your hair should be protected from heat, and properly conditioned, to keep your hair healthy and strong.
