Did you know your hair (assuming you had enough of it) is strong enough to support the weight of two elephants? Or that you lose 40-150 strands of hair a day on average? (Don’t worry, we have an average of 100,000 strands, so that shedding is pretty minimal.) No matter how much (or how little) hair you have on your head, you probably don’t know that much about it. Fortunately, this infographic can fill you in with over 50 folicle-friendly facts.

The facts are quite fascinating too. For example, while only 1% of the world’s population has red hair, 13% of Scottish people are natural redheads and the US has the largest total population of gingers. Of course, it’s hard to tell if someone really is a redhead or not these days when 75% of all women dye their hair.
