hair

hair

/he(ə)r/

Noun

Hair is a fine, threadlike substance growing from the skin on virtually all parts of the body. In most mammals, hair serves to conserve heat. Humans have too little hair to serve that purpose, with the notable exception of the head, where there is little fat to insulate the area.
