Is Human Hair Soaking Up the Oil Spill?

by

This serious message just came in from a friend who’s well connected in the coiffure industry:

“I heard this amazing story you can call a few hairdresser to verify — an organization is collecting human hair to help soak up the oil spill in the Gulf!

“I am not shitting you. A friend’s hairdresser told her about it.”

Could this be true?

Could hair — which has ruined so many nights of my life, considering the bad wedges, perms, and blunt cuts I have to deal with on a regular basis — actually be the salvation of the gulf, the economy, and the entire world?

If so…thank you, hair!!!

I’m shaving my entire body for world peace as we speak!
