Type of Hair
Adult has two types of hair. The typical hair on scalp that grows long and on an average, measures 65 to 75 microns (0.065 to 0.075 mm) in diameter (width) is terminal hair.We also have short, fine, light-colored hairs called vellus hair (Baby hair). At puberty, the increase in hormone levels (Testosterone) causes vellus hair in the pubic, armpit and male beard areas to grow deeper and longer and become terminal hairs. Terminal hair becomes villous hair in baldness
