    know how much 4 weeks hair growth weighs?

    I do :-)

    This is just because the "cut your hair, trim your nails" responses never made a lot of sense to me. Being a scientist...

    As with all scientific research however there is a flaw when applying these results to the real world. Can anyone pick it?

    I'm thinking a hard core weight weenie would go for "back, crack & sac" waxing as well before a big race

    And I thought you didn't trust that scale

    Hair from your legs will be more significant...... since it's rotational weight.

    All that fur came from your sack/taint and now you'll have to use double the weight in chamois cream to offset the lubricitive properties formerly provided by the hair?

    ew. no.

    This is dry hair, on a ride it never be dry. I wasn't going to weigh sweaty hair though.

    Laika, It took a few tries for the scale to actually show that weight, it's an average :-)
