Why do your hair and nails keep growing after you die?
They don't keep growing. The skin rots away thus appearing that they have grown They don't. It was previously believed that they did because after death your skin gradually shrinks (a result of moisture loss) and pulls back to reveals more of the hair and nails. Once you are dead, nothing grows. They don't. The skin around hair and nails lose water and retracts, giving the impresion that the hair ( nail ) has grown.
Is hair length controlled by the environment or your DNA?

How do you make more hair grow?
- If you're talking about growing longer hair on the scalp, then you should first of all make sure use hair-growing shampoo and conditioner. Your comb should not tug on your hair so your need a good one and don't comb when your hair is wet. Don't dye your hair either because you will damage it. Keep your hair down when you can - don't tie it up too much. - If you mean growing more hair on the scalp, shave your head. - If you mean growing more hair on other areas (eg. legs), shave too but you shouldn't if you have no hair because millions would die for hairless legs LOL.
