“why do we have hair?”


6 year old Emily: Mommy, why do we have hair?

Me: immediately thinking of all the possible scientific explanations such as hair being a protective mechanism…thinking about the purposes of all the tiny hairs in our noses, lungs etc. trying to recall details from my college anatomy and physiology classes…but what about bald people, how do I explain that…

Me: Hum, Emily I'm not sure, why do you think we have hair?

Emily: I think God wanted us to have pretty heads…

Me: I think you're probably right
