Is hair *really* necessary for anything other than fashion?

Once upon a time we humans needed hair to stay warm. Now we have better clothing that can do that for us.

So is a bunch of hair just for fashion's sake, or is it still necessary?

I was thinking about this last night xD

  • I was thinking the opposite. Why should we bother shaving and all that just to be fashonable? We obviously are meant to have hair or we wouldn't still be growing it! :)

  • Too true Anon :10, but it would be such a pain in the keester to shave it all off everyday.
    Also, when body hair was needed for warmth, it was a lot darker and thicker, similar to pelts. We have a lot less now than our former cave dwellers.

  • Protection from the sun. Even with all of my thick hair, my scalp burns along my part during the summer.
