If some arm hair was burned or cut off what controls the regrowth so that it grows back to the same length as the rest of the hair on the arm?
The length of all of your body hair, including arm hair is controlled by the growing cycle. A hair strands growth cycle consist of: a growing period a resting period falling out and start of new growth period with a new hair strand.
The length of the growing period is fixed for each type of hair (like arm hair). The hairs grow a certain amount every day during the growth period and then stop growing. When they stop growing they are all the same length since they have grown the same amount each day for the same number of days. Usually the hairs on your arm (or leg or head) are in a mixture of different periods; otherwise all the hair would fall out at the same time. This is why the hair on your legs looks thinner after you have shaved them; only the hairs in the growing period start growing right away.

Answer I have hair on the inside of my arms. I quess it just depends on the persons age and how hairy they get, plus hair color.
It depends. Each person is different. It usually depends on the climate of your ancestors. For instance, Italians had hair to protect them from the sun. Same with Middle Easte…rn people. However, Asians who live in slightly colder climates, have barely any hair. On average, armpit hair will start growing at age 12 for people on the hairier side. For not so hairy not so smooth people, it will grow around age 13, 14, or 15. For Asians and non-hairy people, it grows around age 16 to 18. When you reach puberty. 11 years to 14 on average for girls/boys.
No, because a vampire's body is dead and therefore cannot age or grow. This answer is short-sighted. When a human dies, their skin tightens as it decomposes, making it seem …as if the hair grew or nails grew; when in fact what happened is the skin of the cuticles and folicles receded. Therefore, a vampire would not grow hair and nails. Aside from a "real world" answer, there are various fictional references as well: In the TV version of Southern Vampire Mysteries (True Blood), Eric has changing hairstyles, and Sookie actually walks into his office during a haircut. Also, Bill's progeny is somewhat cursed because she was turned as a virgin, and sex is painful for her every time now as she breaks and rebreaks her hymen. That is a clear example of growth not exactly related to healing. In the House of Night series, Zoey has to bite her nails to keep them trimmed as they constantly grow and are so hard she can scratch through rock. In some "vampire paradigms", vampires age as well: In the Cirque du Freak series, vampire age but at a much slower rate. It takes something like 7 human years for them to age 1 year, and they can die of old age. Even further back in vampire lore of Hollywood, in Interview With a Vampire, Kirsten Dunst's character, Claudia tries to chop off all her hair in a fit of anger only to have it instantly grow back to the same length and style it was before she got all pissed off. So here's the thing, to say emphatically "No, vampire's hair does not grow if it's cut" would be incorrect. It would depend. In some books/movies/tv shows we see vampires get cut or shot and their skin healing miraculously fast. How can that be if their dead skin doesn't grow? As exampled above by the character of Claudia, her hair grew back to how it was. And the abovementioned hymen grows back after each breaking. That means that cells are regenrating in some fashion. Tell you what, next time you come across a vampire, ask them. Then hopefully before they drain you of all your blood you'll be able to come back to this post and answer it definitively for us. Deal?
Imagine your hair is like grass. You mow the lawn and after a while it grows back up from the ground. Hair grows from the scalp and when you cut it you are cutting off old hai…r. Hair grows an inch a month.
hair removal cream is best, i use it and it takes a long time for the hair to grow back and it really does come back thinner. try the bikini hair removal cream first, because …if you have sensitive skin it might burn or leave your skin a bit red or blotchy for the next day or so. the bikini cream doesnt leave any red it's for sensitive skin. That is a good answer but another way to get it to not come back is to start waxing it. After time it won't grow back and when you wax you get between 3-8 weeks of smoothness. Contrary to popular belief, hair does not grow back any thicker or coarser once it has been cut. It just appears this way because it starts growing back as a stubble.
you can't you just have to let nature take its course
Yes It Does Depending On How Bad The Burn Is.
hi i'm 15 and i shave my arms. i think it looks and feels better then hairy arms and girls love it . when it growing it's not to much thick but if you want to have smooth arms… you must shave it every week because after week it getting back hairy ..
Women and men's arm hair are the same just if you shave them they come back darker and thicker.
The hair on your arms is called vellus hair: Vellus hair is the fine, non-pigmented hair (peach fuzz) that covers the body of children and adults. The growth of vellus hair i…s not affected by hormones, whereas the growth of terminal hair is affected by hormones. Terminal hairs are the thick pigmented hairs found on the scalp, beard, armpits, and pubic area.
